DBHS track dominates

Following a promising 2020 season that was cut short, the Diamond Bar High School track and field team has had a strong season in its return.

The boys team finished with a 3-1 league record, while the girls finished with a 2-2 league record.

Last Saturday at the Hacienda League finals hosted by Walnut, freshman L’Mio Edwards ran a personal record of 58.77 in the 400-meter race, moving her from ninth place to second place in the all-time DB list.

With her dominant performance this season, Edwards earned the title of All-League MVP. Along with Edwards, junior Josiah Chin was also awarded All-League MVP.

For the individual events, seven DB athletes advanced to the CIF preliminaries at Trabuco Hills High School in Mission Viejo on June 5. 

Edwards qualified for the 400-meter and 800-meter, while Chin qualified for the 100-meter and 200-meter. Juniors Jacob Truong and Hilary Nakaishi qualified for the 110-meter and 100-meter hurdles, respectively.

Outside on the field, junior Aaron Chiong qualified for the high jump and senior Daniel Marquez qualified for the triple jump. Senior Kyra Ruiz also qualified in the shot put event.

In addition, three relay teams–the boys 4×100, boys 4×400 and girls 4×100–will also be competing at the CIF preliminaries.
