Track and Field: Tigers Easily Trump Monrovia, Earn Rio Hondo League Titles

There's one meet remaining for the undefeated South Pasadena High School Tigers. It's next week, against La Cañada.

Both the boys' and girls' track and field teams defeated Monrovia in Rio Hondo League dual meets Wednesday, with scores of 74-53 and 80-47, respectively. The numbers shore up co-league championships for both programs.

It's the third crown in a row for the girls’ side, with the South Pasadena boys reclaiming the crown following a one-year hiatus, according to the Pasadena Sun. The article states that they have now won five titles during the last six years.

One standout Wednesday was SPHS junior Josh Wilson, who swept the distances, the article states. He won the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs.

I know this going to sound repetitive, as I have stated it several times in the past. The real credit for the SP track dynasty belongs to its coaches. Who work with these kids consistently to bring out their best abilities in the events they compete in. These coaches have entered these athletes in the top meets in the southland where they have excelled against some of the best in the state, and producing some of the top marks in the nation and state. These coaches spend countless hours coaching these youngsters, much on their own time. Until the current coaching staff Monrovia used to dominate the league-no more. I have been a track aficionado since my high school days (when I used to compete). I even coached and co-founded a track club years ago, but I have yet to see such dedicated coaching.
