Arcadia Invitational - Friday Highlights Brandon Miles Apr 11, 2009

Photos by Margot Kelly Friday's events at the Arcadia Invitational saw cooler temperatures for at least SoCal standards in a relay heavy first day of competition. A total of six US #1's were produced nonetheless and the boys decathlon national record was simply destroyed by Curtis Beach of New Mexico with his point total of 7909. It was a historic performance thanks to his incredible output of 14.42 clocking in the 110 meter hurdles, over 150 feet throw in the javelin, 14'6" pole vault, and 4:09 1500 to complete the multi-event. Eleanor Roosevelt girls added a US #1 in the 4x200 to their national leading times in the 4x100 and 4x400 from last weekend at the Florida Relays with a 1:36.55 victory. They were unable to win a second event of the day later in the 1600 sprint medley relay as they were turned back by the Long Beach Wilson girls who refused to be defeated in their neck of the woods with a US #2 time of 4:02.31. Two other East Coast schools picked up relay wins on Friday at Arcadia with Monsignor Farrell boys in the 4x800 at 7:51.24 and the Sheephead Bay boys in the shuttle hurdle relays in a US #1 59.50. Farrell has been a factory for producing great half milers including a 1:54 on their anchor leg just as Sheephead Bay has been in finding strong hurdlers. Rancho Verde had a boys and girls squad win a sprint medley race with the boys winning the 1600 meter version quite convincingly in a US #2 3:27.49 and just off their own meet record. The Rancho Verde girls had already own the nation's fastest time in the 800 meter SMR and simply dropped it down a half second on Friday in a time of 1:45.08. Dana Hills boys and Saugus girls have been two of California's most successful cross country programs in recen years and certainly relish any opportunity to showcase their depth in the distances when given the opportunity to compete in 4xmile relay. Dana Hills, who had ran US #1 times in the DMR and 4x800 several weeks ago at the California Relays, took aim at a top time in the 4xmile. They were challenged for much of the race by a Seattle Prep squad from Washington, but the Valdez twins (Ryan and Tyler) with 4:19 and 4:16 splits as the final two legs allowed them to pull away with a US #1 17:27.75 win. Despite already posting such strong times early in the outdoor season, the Dana Hill boys are confident of running much faster this season. The Saugus girls had some company through three legs with in-state rivals Dana Hills and then a squad actually from Australia in Ruyton High School, but anchor leg Anne Bulder broke the race open with a 5:04 anchor. Saugus finished with an overall time of 20:38.75, which tops the national leaderboard. More to come from Arcadia including photos from Margot Kelly, videos and interviews from Brandon Miles.
