Rachel Cliff clocked a time of 16:07.89 in the Mt. Sac 5000m. Both Erica and Rachel will be competing at the Payton Jordan meet at Stanford University this weekend. They are looking to better the FISU qualifying marks of 4:18.00 and 16:00.00. At the Oregon Relays in Eugene, the Thunderbirds were led by Matthew So's 3rd place finish in the 800m. His time of 1:54.87 was just off his personal best and shows that he is ready for an excellent high school season. Sophie Dodd finished an impressive 7th in the 800m with a time of 2:17.20. Sophie and Matthew will both be racing at the Ken Shannon Invitational at the University of Washington on May 4th and will be looking to better their personal best times of 1:54.47 and 2:17.00. Other Thunderbirds in action in Oregon were Audrey Warner and Tessa Ladner. Both Audrey and Tessa ran personal best times in the 1500m (4:52.21 and 5:01.69). Congratulations to all of our athletes that competed in Oregon and California...well done!
