Andrew Bumbalough ran a 4:06.53 mile last Saturday to join 29 others for a total of 30 boys who are in the top 100 all-time for both the mile and 2-mile. Gerry Lindgren leads the list, and Alan Webb is second. The decade of the 2000s is second best (9 runners), but is closing on the 1970s (10.5) with 4 years to go.

Historic performances in California
Granite Bay HS junior Scott Roth cleared 17-02 at the Sac Joaquin Section Finals to become the world U-18 leader in the boys pole vault, improving his national age-16 record and achieving the best vault mark by a Californian in 14 years!
On the track, Dorsey HS senior David Gettis (signed with Baylor) torched the oval with a nation-leading 46.08 to win the L.A. City Section Finals. Gettis' time was the fastest one-lap clocking by a Golden Stater since the famed Obea Moore clocked 45.14 in a Pan-Am Juniors competition in Chile 10 years ago.
Over in the sandbox, the Merrill West HS duo of Brittany Daniels and Shevell Quinley continued to dazzle. Daniels matched her seasonal best with a 20-05.50 leap into the wind to win the SJS Finals, with teammate Quinley recording a lifetime-best 20-03.75 into the wind to claim second. They are believed to be the only same-year 20-foot teammates in U.S. prep history.
Controversies continued as well, with Lincoln of Stockton's boys 4x400 relay team reportedly being disqualified for non-matching uniforms. Lincoln had clocked 3:18.60 in the long relay late last month as was the Northern California leader in the event. Long Beach Poly's boys 4x400, which placed second at the Penn Relays in 3:12.35, was DQ'ed in the CIF-Southern Section Divisional Finals last weekend. Tonight (Friday), the powerhouse CIF-Southern Section Masters meet highlights the docket.
