SoCal Prep Legends
Boys Athlete of the Week
Name: Joseph Anderson
School: Upland
Sport: Track
Year: Senior

Winning Numbers: Despite a poll that brought in just over 500 votes, compared to the 38,000+ votes that last week’s SCPL Boys Athlete poll garnered, Anderson runs away with the weekly award.
Anderson took first place in the 100 meter hurdles at the prestigious Arcadia Invitaional with a time of 13.59 which stands as the fourth-best time in the nation this season. He led the final from start to finish. Anderson, who has signed with the University of Oregon, won the state championship in that event last spring and is a favorite to repeat.
