M-A track teams take positive steps forward at PAL finals

 

The Menlo-Atherton track and field teams made important strides forward at the 2016 Peninsula Athletic League Championships on Saturday at M-A, with each squad making up for disappointments of a year ago.

The M-A girls, who lost last year's title to Mills by a single point, avenged that defeat in a big way as the Bears scored 152 points with Mills second with 90. The M-A boys, who finished 58 points behind first-place Mills in 2015, nearly made up that difference -- finishing second just two points behind the Vikings.

All in all, it was a successful day for both M-A teams as they prepared for the upcoming Central Coast Section semifinals at Gilroy High on May 21. The meet originally was set for San Jose City College, but moved due to construction of a new gym.
