Breanna Clark Wins SoCal 400 Title
Pasadena City College sophomore Breanna Clark raced a new 2014 state fastest time in the women's 400 meters in becoming regional champion at the Southern California Track and Field Championships held Saturday at Riverside City College.
Clark posted a mark of 55.22 seconds, edging Riverside's Shebanet'te Terry (55.97) to win the race. Clark was fifth in the 200 with a 25.02 time, slower than her personal best SoCal Prelims mark of 24.28.
Sophomore Christina Shamirian ran her fastest time of 2014 at 11:50.45 to take sixth place in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
Clark's 14 scoring points and Shamirian's three totaled PCC's 17 points that placed 13th overall in the team standings. Letterman Yvette Bastidas placed ninth in the discus at 32.11 meters to finish her PCC throwing career.
Clark and Shamirian have qualified for the CCCAA State Championships to be held Friday-Saturday, May 16-17 at Mt. San Antonio College. The Lancers women's track and field team is directed by head coach Cedric Hill, who is in his first season at PCC.
