Cougar Track and Field Athletes do well in CCS. Graham Faust in Finals!

Congrats to the members of the track and field team at CCS trials at Gilroy High School on Saturday.  Nine athletes competed: Seniors Graham Faust, Gillian Davis, Ryan Staal, Patrick Jones, Matt Spigelman, Juniors  Louis Wooliever and Mackenzie Faust and Sophomores Makenna Colucci and Jake Quisog.    

While All competed well, Graham Faust was the only Cougar to advance to finals.  Ryan Staal was very close in the Long Jump and High jump, but came just literally a couple inches from advancing.  

Graham ran a very controlled and smart race in the 3200m run in 9 minutes and 31 seconds to earn an automatic bid into the final by placing high in his heat.  He will compete this Friday at Gilroy HS once again.  Top 3 in CCS advance to the CIF Championships in Fresno.  Wish him luck.
