Ryan Wilson Interview

Carlmont's Ryan Wilson had himself a day on Saturday at the Dublin Distance Fiesta, walking away with not one but TWO sombreros, the only athlete at the meet that could make such a claim. Wilson won the 1600m, although he said he didn't feel well. His time of 4:18.67 was the best in the fast 'Sombrero' heat, the fastest of 29 heats and 680 boys who competed in the four-lap event. Wilson came back hours later to anchor the winning DMR team, beating both Alex Scales (Bellarmine) and Jett Charvet (Heritage) on the final leg.  (Scales had earlier won the boys 800m.) Calmont's DMR team of junior Justin Hsu, senior Tanner Anderson, sophomore Caleb Metzler and Wilson, a senior, ran 10:30.65, the best among two heats and 39 teams, and now also No. 1 in CA, bettering Roosevelt's 10:33.31 mark set last week in beating Great Oak at Redondo.
