Torrey Pines High School wins nine medals in CIF Track & Field Championships

TPHS Senior Tal Braude, who won the 1600m and placed second in the 3200m, advances to the State Championships.

Fourteen Torrey Pines athletes competed in 11 events at the San Diego Section CIF Track & Field Championships on Saturday, May 31. The Falcons earned nine medals in six events by placing in the top 5 with the top three advancing to the State Championships on June 6-7 in Clovis, Calif.

Senior Tal Braude won in the 1600m and placed 2nd in the 3200m, an amazing feat of endurance with only three hours between these two tough races on the hot, sunny day.  He earned a new personal record (PR) of 4:13:03 min. in his first race, the 1600m. In addition to receiving two medals, he was given a plaque and recognized at the meet as the recipient of the Joe Brooks Award for Excellence in Cross Country.

Joining Tal at the State CIF Championships later this week will be Junior Jackie Garner who earned a berth in the 1600m with a PR of 5:05.11 min.
