HS track and field competes at Kanto Finals

The high school track and field team competed at Kanto Finals on Saturday at Yokota. CAJ's girls finished fourth out of seven teams with 52 points, and the boys were fifth out of seven teams with 53 points.

CAJ's athletes were able to take advantage of a warm day that wasn't very windy. The Knights accomplished a total of 19 personal records and had many athletes attain or solidify high positions in the CAJ record book.

Of note, Josiah moved up to rankings No. 2, No. 4 and No. 4, respectively, in the 100 meters, 200 meters and long jump events in Knights history. Megumi (12th grade) is now third place all-time in the 300 meter hurdles, just 0.12 seconds behind second place. The girls' 4x100 meter relay team achieved the third-best time in school history. Annabelle's high jump performance on Saturday tied her personal record and keeps her tied for second place on CAJ's all-time list.

Here were all the top-eight individual performances and top-three relay performances from the Knights:
