Mountain View High graduate Brielle Rowe this season coached the throwers on the Homestead High track and field team, including Central Coast Section girls discus champion Miranda Zinola.

With a throw of 127 feet, 10 inches, Zinola edged Mountain View’s Sinai Fatafehi (126-11) for first place at last month’s meet in Gilroy.

One Spartan throws, the other walks

Mountain View High senior Rachael Estell, who won the long jump at the Central Coast Section finals, chose to skip last weekend’s state meet so that she could graduate with her class.

Rachael Estell chose to walk rather than run and jump Friday, while Mountain View High teammate and fellow state meet qualifier Sinai Fatafehi opted to throw the shot put and discus instead of her graduation cap.

Estell and Fatafehi – both top-three finishers in two events at the Central Coast Section finals the week before – seemed fine with their decisions regarding the state track and field championships, which coincided with Mountain View’s graduation ceremony.

Los Altos High’s Anna Zaeske has qualified for the CCS finals in the 400-meter dash.

If it weren’t for the Junior Olympics, Anna Zaeske might not be preparing to compete in Friday’s Central Coast Section track and field finals.

“That’s where I started to figure out that I liked to run,” she said.

Los Altos High’s Thea Mollerstedt won both girls hurdles races last week against Lynbrook.

The Los Altos High girls track and field team took a circuitous route to going undefeated in league.

Days before beating Lynbrook last week to cap their dual-meet season, the Eagles learned that they retroactively won their March 23 meet against Milpitas. Los Altos co-head coach Dave Barth said that after a scoring error in the girls high jump was corrected, his team was declared the victor.
