The Palo Alto High School track and field came in at fourth place with 258 points at the De Anza League Trials on Tuesday, May 1st and Thursday, May 3rd.

Los Altos came in at first, followed by Lynbrook, then Los Gatos, with scores of 400, 351, and 265 respectively as Palo Alto unfortunately did not make it into the top three.

“I don’t think it was the best measure of our season because some of our athletes that should’ve been competing didn’t get the chance to” Zoe Sid (‘19) said.

In the first event, the Palo Alto girls fell fourth place in the 4×100 meter relay with a time of 52.55, falling behind Los Altos, Los Gatos, and Gunn.

Palo Alto stepped it up in the 1600 meter girls run with Julia Doubson (‘18) coming in second at 5:18.46 only falling to Gunn by 0.19 seconds. The boys also delivered in the 1600 with Paly’s own Sam Craig (‘18) coming in first place with a time of 4:20.07.

The girls came in third in five events including the 100 meter hurdle, 800 meter run, 200 meter run, 3200 meter, and shot put.

Unfortunately, there were not able to place in the top 3 in the 400 meter, 300 meter hurdle, 4×400 meter relay, triple jump, long jump, high jump, and the discus throw. The girls were awarded third place with 61 points overall.

The boys team came in first place in the 800 meter with Reed Foster (‘18) coming in at 1:58.73 and in the 3200 meter with Henry Saul coming in at 9:39.74. Besides that, they were awarded third place in the 1600 meter, 4×400 relay, triple jump, and long jump.

Overall the boys placed third with 70 points.
