Joseph Anderson

Anderson had an outstanding showing at Saturday’s CIF Southern Section track meet at Cerritos College, finishing first in the 110 hurdles (13.67) and third in the 330 hurdles (38.12), turning in season bests times in each. He went into the meet ranked second in the Southern Section and the state in the 110 but bettered his time and beat the athlete that had boasted the best time, so he now owns section and state bests.

Jasher Foster
St. Francis

Foster had a monster day at the CIF Southern Section track finals Saturday at Cerritos College. The standout took home section titles in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles. Foster recorded personal-best times of 14.03 and 37.69, respectively. Foster got a late start on the track season after injuring his knee during football as the Knights’ leading receiver.

Xolan Brown

Brown, who has the No. 7 time in the state this year in the 800 meters, didn’t surpass that on Saturday at the CIF-SS Championships, but his time of 1 minutes, 53.68 seconds was enough to give him the Division 2 title. The time was also good enough to qualify him for the CIF-SS Masters Meet.
