Godinez's track team greatly outnumbered Costa Mesa's, but regardless, Mesa still took eleven first places and nine athletes hit their Personal Best.
Tristan Pardon continued his victory from last meet with two more personal bests and two first place finishes in his hurdle races. With these two victories he officially lettered in Varsity for the season.
But in other not so happy news, some athletes are also members of Mesa's award-winning Virtual Enterprise and they had just gotten back from a long trip to San Francisco. These three athletes: Robert Blackwell, Raquel Friedmann, and Cesar Chavez, we're all exhausted from the trip but they all dealt with it differently. Robert being one of Mesa's top runners, was able to handle it pretty well as he still took a few top three finishes at the Godinez meet. On the other hand, Cesar and Raquel being the CEOs of their companies were potentially even more tired. Cesar based on his tennis match on Tuesday, decided to sit this meet out. Raquel felt confident enough to run, but on her last race, the two-mile, she decided to drop out. The sleep she'd missed and the hard work over the past week took its toll.
In the end, despite individual good performances, Godinez won overall with an overwhelming lead due to their size advantage over Mesa. Mustangs have another chance to prove themselves as their next meet is this coming Saturday at the big Laguna Beach Invitational.
