The RCC men's track and field team competed this past weekend at the UCLA Legends Invite/Bob Larsen Distance Carnival. The men once again were led by a very strong distance crew with big performances by freshman Alec Hall (Norco HS) and sophomore Cade Clark (Santiago HS) in the 800m running 1:52.67 (3rd fastest time in the state) and 1:54.7 respectively. Hall was able to put up another solid performance running a 3:56.88 in the 1500m the next day, which is the 2nd fastest time in the 1500m behind fellow teammate Christian Malloy. The long distance also are proving to be a force to be reckoned with Christian Malloy (Vista Murrieta HS) running a 15:23.93 in the 5000m winning his heat, Isaiah Quiambao running the 10000m in a time of 32:25.94 (5th fastest time in the state), and Michael Simpson running the 3000m Steeplechase in a heat winning time of 9:13.28 (2nd fastest time in the state). In the triple jump James Wilson put together another solid day on the runway jumping a season best 14.75m/ 48'4.75" which is the 4th farthest jump in the state this year.
