Sierra League track finals wrap-up

It started off as a hot day, then evolved into a comfortable evening for the Sierra League track finals at Diamond Bar on Thursday.

Here are the results that won’t appear until Saturday’s paper.

I wasn’t able to review all the league records before writing the story, and there was one set: by Chino Hills’ Melissa Keltner. Her triple jump of 38 feet, 7 3/4 inches shattered the old mark set by Diamond Bar’s Julie Stevenson in 1998 at 37-11 1/2. She also just missed on a long jump record. She jumped 18-6 1/2, a quarter inch shy of  the league record set by Glendora’s Madeline LeDuc in 2007. It’s an impressive feat to set a league record, considering the oldest varsity league record was set in 1978 (boys shot put). Ayala’s Spencer Doolittle set the only league finals record in 2008, in the 1600 meters. Other than Doolittle, all boys league records date from 1998 or earlier.
