2017 All-StanCo Distance Track Team

This is a first for me. I have compiled All StanCo XC teams for several years, but never a track team. Up front I want to state that this is a list of DISTANCE RUNNERS that competed in track. I am naming them based on the merits of their marks this season in distance events. I acknowledge that track encompasses many more specialty event than distance, but the primary purpose of this blog is to promote HS DISTANCE RUNNING--thus only distance runners on this list. Please feel free to expound upon my selections in the comments.

To be considered I was looking at marks of sub B 2:00/G 2:20 in the 800m; sub B 4:30/ G 5:30 in the 1600m; and sub B 10:00/ G 12:00 in the 3200m. There were two athletes who met one of these benchmarks, but I didn't include. I ended up with eleven on the list (there was no magic number I was shooting for, though). I have noted these exceptions at the bottom of the list. They are somewhat ordered by grade level.

CLAIRE SEYMOUR, 12TH (ENOCHS)--though primarily a 400m runner with a best of 55.27, she ran the 800m in the MMC Championship meet and produced a mark of 2:15.96 which was the top StanCo time of the season and ranks her as # 9 all-time.

SARA STEVENS, 12TH (OAKDALE)--primarily an 800m runner, Sara's best time was 2:18.41 which was the 3rd best 800m for StanCo ladies. That time is also ranked 14th all-time. Did I mention that she didn't even run the 800m seriously the past two seasons.

TOMAS VIRGEN, 12TH (PATTERSON)--Tomas often doubled in the 1600m and 3200m. Competing out of the WAC he rarely was able to run against the best in the county. He broke 10 min last season in the 3200m and followed that up with a sub 10 effort in a dual meet this season. At SJS Masters he had a huge PR with a 9:40.24 (3rd best mark of the season). He also had the 7th best 1600m of 4:38.09.

MASON REEVES, 11TH (GREGORI)--Mason was the StanCo Champion in the 3200m. He produced several sub 10 min 3200m efforts this season. His top mark came at SJS Masters where he ran 9:29.29. This was the 2nd best 3200m time of the season and #14 all-time). In the 1600m he ran 4:32.79, also the 2nd best StanCo mark.

SANTIAGO RUIZ, 11TH (GREGORI)--the other half of Gregori's "Dynamic Distance Duo," Santi was a Jack of all trades (err races). He was the StanCo champ in the 1600m. His best time at that distance was 4:25.43 (#1 for the season). At SJS Masters he raced to a 9:23.27 (#1 for the season and #11 all-time). He also ran the 800m in 2:01.35 (3rd best for the season).

ANTHONY VAZQUEZ, 11TH (CENTRAL CATHOLIC)--often required to triple in distance events at VOL dual meets, Anthony was a work-horse for the Raiders. He was StanCo champ in the 800m. He was one of only two StanCo boys to break the 2:00 barrier. His best time of 1:57.52 (#1 for the season) qualified him for SJS Masters finals in the 800m. He also ran 4:34.10 (#4 season) and 10:50.74.

ALONDRA HERNANDEZ, 11TH (RIVERBANK)--I have been waiting for Alondra to be healthy and breakout! She was the StanCo champ in the 800m. Her best 800m was 2:27.01 (#9 season). Her real breakout efforts came in the 1600m where she ran 5:16.91 (#2 for the season).
ESMERALDA CAMPOS, 11TH (HUGHSON)--like Anthony Vazquez, Esme was a workhorse in the distance events doing what ever her team needed her to do. Her best marks were 5:29.36 in the 1600m (#4 season) and 11:48.88 in the 3200m which was the top mark this season by a StanCo lady.

MAVLEEN MANN, 10TH (PITMAN)--Mavleen was completely off my radar prior to this track season. Well she has my attention now. She ran 5:29.58 in the 1600m  (#5 season) and 11:56.98 in the 3200m (#3 season). Oh and did I mention this was all in training shoes--without spikes.

BRISEIDA GARCIA, 10TH (GREGORI)--Briseida cranked out a 2:14 effort last season as a Frosh. By that standard this season might be considered a Sophomore Slump, but most runners would love to have such disappointment. She ran 2:16.11 in the 800m (#2 for the season behind Claire). She also ran the 1600m in 5:18.35 (#3 season).

EMILY FIFE, 10TH (HUGHSON)--Every time I see Emily run she reminds me of a puppy--I mean she looks as though she is learning from each and every experience. It all must be working because her times are improving. Her 1600m time of 5:14.62 was to best in the county this season. She also produced marks of 11:49.18 in the 3200m (#2 season just behind her teammate Esme) and 2:26.54 in the 800m (#7 season)

On a side note: there are two runners who met my benchmarks but were not included:
1. KINSEY LANGLEY, 10th (Hughson)--was the StanCo Champ in the 3200m and broke 12 min with a time of  11:59.76 (#4 season). However Kinsey was injured most of the season and ran very few races.
2. ISAIAH MARABLE, 12th (Pitman)--primarily a 400m runner (like Claire), Isaiah ran a few 800m races and was one of only two StanCo boys to break the 2:00 barrier in the 800m. He did not run this event in the championship portion of the season (and honestly just disappeared at the end of the season), so I am not including him on this DISTANCE list.

SJS MASTERS (Prelims and Finals)

This was the last week of track for me as no StanCo distance runners qualified for the State Meet. It has certainly been a solid season and I will write a summary article in the near future. This write up is solely about the Section Masters meet (Prelims and Finals).

5/25/17 SJS MASTERS PRELIMS, ElkGrove HS, Elk Grove
With the 800m being the only distance race contested in the Prelims, the StanCo results are minimal.

VG 800

 8. Briseida Garcia (Gregori) 2:17.57 (qualified)
14. Sara Stevens (Oakdale) 2:18.59

VB 800m
Anthony Vazquez PRs in the Prelims
12. Anthony Vazquez (Central Catholic) 1:57.88 (qualified)



5/26/17 SJS MASTERS FINALS, ElkGrove HS, Elk Grove
This was it! The top three in each event would qualify for State and everybody else would go home for the summer. Qualifying to get here is an accomplishment but everyone participating is looking to extend their season another week.

VG 1600m
Emily Fife (Hughson) surprisingly led this race at the 400m mark. I think this psyched her out a bit as she lost some focus in the middle of the event. She still finished with a very respectable time.

15. Emily Fife (Hughson) 5:16.42
20. Mavleen Mann (Pitman) 5:32.98

Briseida Garcia ran the first 400m in 64 sec and led the race. This early pace may have been a bit too quick as she faded over the final 180m from 1st to eventually 4th, just missing a qualifying spot.

Anthony Vazquez (Central Catholic) had PRed the nigh before. If he had been able to repeat that effort he would have been in the mist of the pack in the finals. As it was, he trailed from the gun and struggled to keep up.

11. Anthony Vazquez (Central Catholic) 2:00.19

The duo from Hughson entered the race with two of the slowest qualifying times. They were both hoping to PR and break 12. Elizette would heart-breakingly just miss that goal.

20. Esmeralda Campos (Hughson) 11:48.88
22. Elizette Ysias (Hughson) 12:02.00

VB 3200m
Santiago Ruiz just misses a spot at State
With the only three entrants here being the only three StanCo boys to break 10min this season, the trio was up for the challenge of racing against the Valley's best male distance runners. With the exception of one runner, the pace was fairly slow and played out well for the local guys. Santiago even led the pack for several laps. It was the final BIG push to the line that left Mason and Santiago a step behind. All three local boys PRed for their efforts.

Mason Reeves break 9:30 for the first time
6. Santiago Ruiz (Gregori) 9:23.27  (#11 all-time StanCo)
10. Mason Reeves (Gregori) 9:29.29  (#14 all-time StanCo)

MASTERS PREVIEW (So you want to qualify for State?)

This is my preview of the StanCo DISTANCE runners who qualified for SJS Masters and perhaps what their chances are for making it to State.

VG 800m
The Prelims will be on Thursday. The top 3 in each heat (and the next three fastest) will qualify for the finals on Friday.

SARA STEVENS (Oakdale) is in Heat 2. She comes in with the 4th fastest time in the heat (2:18.41)
BRISEIDA GARCIA (Gregori) in in Heat 3. She comes in with the 4th fastest time in the heat (2:18.55).
I belive it will take about 2:17ish to get into the finals and about 2:15 or less to qualify for State.

VB 800m
The Prelims will be on Thursday. The top 3 in each heat (and the next three fastest) will qualify for the finals on Friday.

ANTHONY VAZQUEZ (Central Catholic) comes in with a time of 1:58.02. He has the 5th fastest time in his heat. I think sub 1:57 will get you into the finals. To make it to State it could take 1:54 or lower.

For both the 1600m and 3200m races, there are no Wednesday Prelims. Everyone goes straight to the finals. This creates a very crowded and talented field.

VG 1600m
EMILY FIFE (Hughson) has the 13th fastest qualifying time (5:14.62)
MAVLEEN MANN (Pitman) comes in with the 23rd fastest time (5:33)
To get to State it will likely take a sub 5:02 effort. Four runners come in with times faster than that already (So it may take a sub 5:00)

VG 3200m
ESMERALDA CAMPOS (Hughson) comes in at 12:10.77, the 22nd fastest qualifying time.
ELIZETTE YSIAS (Hughson) has the 23rd fastest qualifying time with 12:16.47.

Usually it takes a sub 11:00 mark to get to State. Last year nine ladies broke 11 and it took 10:43 to qualify.

VB 3200m
The only three StanCo men to break 10 min this season are appropriately the last three standing in the 3200m.
SANTIAGO RUIZ (Gregori) comes in with the 10th fastest time of 9:34.71.
MASON REEVES (Gregori)is the 13th fastest qualifier at 9:37.80.
TOMAS VIRGEN (Patterson) comes in with the 22nd fastest time at 9:57.94.

The last couple of years it has take a sub 9:20 effort to grab the final State spot. It may take 9:10 or better as 4 qualified under 9:30.

Sunday, May 21, 2017


A very busy week for me with 4 meets in 4 days (not counting all the photo editing time). I witnessed some great competition and certainly some heartbreaks. This time of the year is always a bit bittersweet as I say goodbye to so many runners that I have been watching and photographing for the past four years. I know that the discipline and determination they have developed through distance running will serve them well in the future whether they continue running or not.

5/16 D4/5 PRELIMS @Stanislaus St, Turlock
Competing StanCo teams were from the SAL, WAC, CCAA and TVL. (Turlock Christian, Big Valley Christian, Denair, Orestimba, Waterford, Riverbank, Hughson, Modesto Christian, Ceres, Central Valley and Patterson).

 NEXT UP the Masters Prelims are Thursday 5/25 back at Elk Grove HS with the finals the next day

Sunday, May 14, 2017


A busy and windy week of championship meets. In the MMC the top 4 individuals qualify to the D1 trials on Wednesday 5/17 at Elk Grove HS. The qualifying 1600m and 3200m runner go straight to the finals on Friday 5/19 at Elk Grove HS. For the TVL and WAC runners the top 3 qualified (although I heard someone at the WAC say for them it was top 4) for the D45 trials at Stan St, Turlock on Tuesday 5/16. Again the 1600m and 3200m runners go straight to the finals which will be Thursday 5/18 also at Stan St.

5/12 SAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, Atwater HS, Atwater
You know I always look at the SAL cluster results hoping that someone from one of the StanCo schools (Waterford, Orestimba, Denair) produces a time fast enough to be worth reporting. I know that these are small schools that have fewer numbers to draw from, but I am reporting individual times here...Friday night, I am certain that the wind had to be a factor in the times also.

5/13 WAC CHAMPIONSHIPS, Pacheco HS, Los Banos
Participating StanCo teams were Ceres, Central Valley, and Patterson. I am going to opine for a moment. Pacheco HS has a beautiful facility and first look. There are some major and minor issue if one looks closer. I'm not even going to get into those. There were two big issues that affected everyone at this meet: 1. the tornado type wind (no one's fault) 2. the complete ineptitude of the timers--this meet took over 8 hours. The hurdle races alone took over 90 min to complete; the 200s took at least that long too. As a distance runner I am unsure how you could possibly time your warm up in such a situation. This was not a dual meet. When the times and timing really matters perhaps you should hire someone who knows how to use the equipment properly--the athletes deserve better than what they received at this meet. I am done now.
