Above: Bishop Amat’s Kylie Price was one of those athletes to set meet records. The junior broke records she set last year; she won the 100 in 12.18 and the long jump with a mark of 19-0 1/2.
Meet Story: In the world of sprinters, it seems to be habit that the best avoid each other until the season’s best meets. That’s not the case in the San Gabriel Valley. When Covina High School’s Remontay McClain won the 100 meters in the fifth annual San Gabriel Valley Track and Field Championships at West Covina High, the junior was bummed that his stiffest competition, West Covina’s Beejay Lee, was not in the race. “I kind of missed him,” McClain said, “But I got first place. He’s a fun guy to hang out with. He’s a fun guy to talk to.” McClain got his wish later in the day in the 200. Lined up next to McClain, in featured Lane 5, was Lee. It was the fifth time the pair have faced off against each other this season. Lee missed the 100 because he previously committed to the Nike football combine in Long Beach.
