Redondo sends three runners to state track finals
Despite finishing third in the 1,600 at the CIF Southern Section Championships, Redondo distance runner Evan Malone-White’s time was only good enough to qualify him as an alternate at Friday’s CIF Masters Meet at Cerritos College.
But the cross country standout made the most of his opportunity, running a personal best to place fifth with a time of 4 minutes, 12.12 seconds and advance to the CIF State Championships on Friday and Saturday at Veterans Memorial Stadium at Buchanan High School in Clovis.
Rachel Bush also qualified for the state meet finishing 8th in the girls 3,200 with a time of 10:33.92. Joining Bush and Malone-White will be fellow Sea Hawk Cara Ulizio who was an at-large qualifier with an 11th-place finish in the girls 1,600 (4:58.64).
After winning the CIF Southern Section Division 2 championship in the boys 800 with a time of 1 minute, 54.30 seconds, Redondo’s Dustin Herold will not advance to the State Championships due to an 11th-place finish with a time of 1:55.88.
Also missing the cut was Redondo’s Amber Gore who finished 7th in the 800 (2:14.91).
