Clark Falls In 400, 5th In 200; PCC Track Season Concludes
Pasadena City College women's sophomore Breanna Clark gave it her all in the 400 meters Saturday at the CCCAA State Track and Field Championships but her efforts came up short in her quest for a state title. Clark took the lead at the 100 meter mark and held the lead for most of the race, but as the field caught up to her in the final 25 meters, she stumbled and could not finish.
Clark, who was the state's fastest racer coming into the event, recovered enough to race in the 200 meters an hour later and she took home a fifth place medal in that event at 24.44 seconds. Clark scored four team points as PCC placed 38th out of 41 teams at the state meet held at Mt. San Antonio College.
Lancers sophomore Christina Shamirian took ninth in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at 12:22.51, just missing out of the top 8 medal places.
"Breanna worked so hard to get to the state meet, and she represented PCC proudly," said first-year Lancers head coach Cedric Hill. "She was our first 400-meter SoCal champion and a conference champ as well. Now, it's my job to go out recruit and put together a deeper team in 2015."
