CCS FINALS, May 20th, Gilroy HS


Nursing a high ankle sprain and fibularis tendonitis, Kathir still makes it to State. Placing 3rd, as well as beating the State automatic qualifying time

One more track meet before prepparing for the NCAA D1, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)

Maelys was the last seed into the CCS 100m Final. Yet, in the Final she beat 4 of the other higher seeds and just missed State by .03 seconds, coming in 4th in CCS. She finishes the season as the 2nd fastest 100m girl in school history.

Injuries and a little inexperienced, dampened the VB finals chance of getting to State. However, the team had a great season, posting the 7th fastest 4x4 time out of the 150-school CCS. Also dropping in the 3rd fastest time in school history.

The Varsity Boys 4x400m relay moves on to next week's Finals by running the 6th fastest time in CCS. Kathir, Fabian, Jonathan and Leland posted the 3rd fastest time in school history.

Maelys handing off to Anusha. Maelys moved on to Finals in the 100 meters. Anusha came up short in the 400, but climbs into the Fremont all-time records lists in the 400m and 4x1. 

Hayley, nursing a knee injury, lost in a jump-off for the last HJ spot. With some rest, and a scratch from 1-other jumper, she could surprise everyone by going to State

Kathir moves to the Finals, winning his heat with the 3rd best 300mH time of the meet. He still remains undefeated in head-to-head competition in the event this year

The Varsity Girls 4x100m relay of Maelys, Anusha, Maya and Nina ran the 4th fastest 4x1 in school history. The girls posted the 11th fastest 4x1 in CCS, which left them just outside of the finals. Still a solid accomplishment for a season in which they collected multiple 1st place medals in invitationals.

Isaac and the rest of the CCS distance runners had to battle near 90-degree temperatures as well as battling one another. Isaac did not make the Finals, but his SCVAL 4:21.91 is the 16th fastest time of the season, versus the over 1500 boys who ran the event in CCS.


Ten Fremont T&F student-athletes move on to CCS, 4 more are on the bubble.

Due to injuries, Kathir drops the 100m and 110mHH in an attempt to move on to State in the 300mH.

Becoming SCVAL champion in the event was a good start

Maelys finishes in a "dead-heat" for 1st place with Los Altos for SCVAL VG 100m champion. Maelys was edged out by 3-one-thousanths of a second (0.003). She also took 3rd in the 200m, moving on to CCS in both events

Maelys leads-off the VG 4x100m Relay. Teaming with Anusha, Nina and Maya to move on to CCS, taking 4th in SCVAL

Hayley continues to stay highly ranked in CCS, moving on to CCS from the SCVAL high jump

The VB 4x400m Relay moves on to CCS, with Wyatt doing an excellent job as a last-second sub, teaming with Fabian, Leland and Jonathan

Anusha Chadalavada moves on to CCS in the open 400m. She continues to climb the Fremont all-time records list in this event

Isaac blasts his way into the Fremont all-time top-5 in the 1600m/Mile with a 4:21.91, making his way into CCS by SCVAL placement, and by beating the provisional qualifier, to put a bow on it.

Nikola Pesich leads through 8 hurdles of his heat, but this hurdle left him on the bubble for CCS

Fremont camp at SCVAL

Leland blows by the 2-minute barrier for 800m with a 1:58.92. Unfortunately, he's on the bubble from SCVAL (he would have won 4 of the other 7 leagues in CCS).

Zeke fights off Cupertino while anchoring the 4x800 relay. The relay team is on the bubble until all CCS League meets finish

Shay runs down 4-other teams before handing to Anusha to further gap the pack in their heat, but the 2nd heat dropped in 7-faster times.
