“Kat really left it all out on the track,” Folsom Coach Steve Kinoshita said. “She ran a smart, tough, tactical race, and finished way ahead of her seeding. I am very proud of her.”

In other performances of note, sophomore, Dan Wright, broke the five-minute barrier for the first time in the varsity mile, with a time of 4:59.98, and at the freshman-sophomore level, sophomore, Jacob Teodoro won the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 42.69.
