BEVERLY THINCLADS DEFEAT HAWTHORNE

BOYS VARSITY: BH100, HAW 5
GIRLS VARSITY: BH 89, HAW 16

The meet had issues with the electronic timing so almost all of the races were hand-timed, except some of the 200m races. That meant that all races at 400m or below including hurdles had to be given the standard penalties to convert the times to electronic equivalents as fully automatic times (FAT).

ANNIVERSARIES OF T&F PAST
Each season we celebrate our history by commemorating our past star athletes and this season we have anniversaries of athletes from two teams, the boys 1937 team and the 1977 girls team.

His teammate Joe Caliva did the long jump in 21-6, and set a new school record then for the triple jump at 45-0, which made him an All American in that event. Schilling also tied for 5th at CIF Finals with teammate Gil LaCava in the high jump. Two sprinters were High School All Americans as Eammons Williams in the 220 yd straightaway ran 21.6 (then school record), while teammate Jack Ogilvie ran 21.8. Teammate Johnny Grant ran the event in 22.1 and took 6th at CIF Finals.

This team had two great 880 yd runners on the team, as Cynthia Warner ran 2:12.5 (then school record)(2:11.80c 800m) and Sandra Anderson ran 2:15.0 (2:14.30c 800m), taking 5th and 6th respectively in State, and garnering High School All American status for both runners. The 4X 440 yd relay of Warner, Anderson, Jeannine Todd and Diane Isaacs was on the U.S. list running 3:55.10 (then school record) (3:54.00c for 4X400m relay) and they took 9th in State and 5th in the CIF Finals.
