Sun, Yabu Land Podium Finishes at CIF
Using the favorable early morning conditions to her advantage, Hana Sun (16) place herself in the top 10 and in contention for an individual medal early in Saturday’s state championship division 3 race.
After the stellar start, Sun began to move up during the later stages of the 5000m race, closing through the final straightaway to inch ahead of season-long rival Chloe Hansel of Las Lomas and pick up 6th place. Her time of 17:49.8 was 1:20 improvement over her performance from a year ago and moves her to 5th all-time on the Woodward Park course school record list.
Hannah Ruane (18) also pushed late to finish 16th in 18:17, a 1:09 improvement over her personal best from October’s Roughrider Invitational. With the impressive front-end running, the girls' squad improved over their pre-meet ranking to finish in 5th place. Their team time of 94:36 was good for 5th best in school history.
In the boys' division 3 contest, Jared Yabu (17) once again led the way finishing in 15:29 for 8th place. It is the 3rd best Campolindo state meet performance.
Solid running from Raymond Diaz (17) and Richard Gong (17) gave the boys’ team another tight pack margin to keep it in contention. Struggles in the 2nd half of the race saw the squad fade to 6th place.
While it wasn't the podium finish for which the team had hoped, it was the 12th consecutive year the boys have finished among the state’s top 10 DIII schools . Their team time of 80:30 held up as the best in the NCS across all divisions, and now stands as the 2nd best team time ever recorded by a Campolindo squad at the state meet.

Having finished a distant 3rd behind Las Lomas' accomplished veteran and Miramonte's freshman phenom at both regular season contests, Hana Sun (16) was not considered much of a threat to take the individual crown in Saturday's varsity division of the DFAL championships. But when Chloe Hansel, the defending state champion, and Cassidy Haskell, the sections' top freshman, turned the race into a tactical affair, it was Sun who saved her best play for last.
