The fastest team time of the 2-day Mt.S.A.C. Invitational was set Friday evening by Brea Olinda @ 76:39 in the D3 Sweepstakes race.
Arcadia ran 76:56 on Saturday to win the D1-2 Team Sweepstakes race.
Now a team time can be influenced by 1 single outstanding performance up front as was witnessed
by those of us there Friday evening in soph Austin Tamagno's fabulous record run, but may not show a true 'team' effort.
So, placing the athletes head to head in a dual meet setting, we go back & forth 1 sec here, 2 sec there, until the 4th runners had the same time.
GIVING the nod to Tran of Arcadia over Escobar of Brea-Olinda, Brea would still win 27-28.
Certainly taking nothing away from Arcadia, but if that isn't an impressive bit of running by a D3 school, I certainly don't know what is !!
Congratulations to both teams on a fabulous season so far !!
