Mollerstedt among host of Eagles bound for track finals

Los Altos High’s Thea Mollerstedt wasn’t feeling well when she ran the hurdles at last year’s Central Coast Section track and field trials, and it probably cost her a chance to make the finals.

This year, the junior was feeling fine and qualified for Friday’s finals in both the girls 100- and 300-meter hurdles.

After watching his team place second at the Central Coast Section regional the week before, St. Francis High boys golf coach Brian Inkster was confident the Lancers could finish on top at the CCS finals.

“It was the same course as the regional, and we played a tad sloppy that day,” he said. “I knew if we played our game, we had a good chance.”

The Los Altos High gymnastics team entered last week’s Central Coast Section championships in an unfamiliar position: the favorite.

The Eagles showed throughout the season that they were talented and deep enough to claim the crown, but it had been 28 years since the program won it all.
