LA track team shines at Top 8


The CCS Top 8 Classic is a good way for track and field athletes to see how they measure up against the Central Coast Section’s best, and many of those from Los Altos High proved Saturday that they could hold their own.

Members of Los Altos’ boys and girls varsity teams combined to produce nine top-four finishes and set 13 personal records at Los Gatos High. The boys team placed third at the meet (39 points) and the girls took 15th (15 points) out of 34 schools.

A year ago, Los Altos resident Cody Naporano couldn’t have imagined the success his Jr. Sharks ice hockey team would achieve this season. The Bantam-level squad had just completed a one-win campaign he described as “very horrible.”

This year, the Jr. Sharks won 34 games and were crowned state champions of the 14U B division earlier this month.

When Los Altos High last won a Central Coast Section championship in gymnastics, team members were probably into tapered jeans, Madonna’s “Vogue” and the rom-com “Pretty Woman.”

That was 1990. This may be the year the Eagles finally win another CCS crown.
