Mustangs Victorious: All four Mustang teams outscored the Spartans of South Torrance High on Wednesday as a great crowd went through several climate changes in the course of 3 hours! It was a blowout for sure (and we’re not just talking about that wind that came up about 4 o’clock!)
Here are the results:
Boys Varsity: MC 114, South 22
Girls Varsity: MC 84, South 56
Boys F/S: MC 114, South 22
Girls F/S: MC 107, South 29
Redondo/Nike Invitational Today and Tomorrow: Beginning with a Distance Carnival and Throws competition this afternoon, our Mustangs (and we parents) will spend a good deal of time at Redondo Union High School this weekend (The front of the school is on PCH, but the track stadium is on Vincent between PCH and Prospect)
Take note that the neighborhood across from the track stadium is now permit only, so be sure to give yourself PLENTY of time to find parking (read the signs!). It was challenging to find nearby parking before, so be prepared to walk several blocks.

Gluttons for Punishment: If you haven’t had enough of the running world by Sunday (I guess watching doesn’t really count as exercise, does it?), Village Runner, one of our banner sponsors, is hosting a St. Patty’s Day run (a day early). If you register and indicate MCHS Track as your “team” affiliation, we’ll get a donation from them! INFO HERE
Photo Gallery: Thanks so much to Brett Hodges and our other contributing photographers who have been snapping pix at the recent meets. In case you haven’t seen the 2014 gallery (growing every week!) you can check it out HERE.
