South Pasadena High School was the host for the 77th annual Pasadena Games Track Meet where athletes from over fifty Southland schools came together to compete.
Director CB Richards, the Tigers noted track coach, said it was the most successful games that school had held during its five year tenure at Solari Stadium.
Local athletes had outstanding performances in their respective events, most notably by SPHS junior Mia Holden who won the triple jump and set a school record in the 300 hurdles.
There were also a number of state best seasonal marks set during the two day venue as hundreds of elite athletes converged to vie for Olympics-worthy medals in both field and running competition.
Athletes from local area schools also took part in the various events. The Pasadena Games have become one of the top track competitions in California along with the prestigious Arcadia Invite Meet.
Richards has become one of the top track promoters on the high school circuit and will next host and manage the Tiger Invite where top athletes from all over the world will come to compete at South Pasadena High School in April.
