Menlo’s Charlotte Tomkinson edges Los Altos High’s Anna Zaeske for second place in the 4x400-meter relay at Friday’s Central Coast Section finals in Gilroy.

Although the photo finish for second place in the girls 4x400-meter relay didn’t favor Los Altos High at Friday’s Central Coast Section track and field finals, the Eagles still left Gilroy with plenty to smile about.

Los Altos co-head coach Dave Barth said the relay team of Jessie Bourgan, Jessie Carlson, Thea Mollerstedt and Anna Zaeske “gave everything they had” to finish in a season-best time of 3 minutes, 56.75 seconds and qualify for the state championships. The meet is slated Friday (trials) and Saturday (finals) in Clovis.

“It took us three years, but we finally got them,” Mountain View coach Kris Mims said. “But it wasn’t easy. They’re the defending champs and won 22 games.”
