Four more individuals, three relay teams qualify for FE track
Published: April 14, 2012
Contrary to yesterday’s blog post, a Kanto Plain Association of Secondary Schools track and field meet WAS held at Tokyo’s Oi Pier Grounds, near Tokyo International Airport.
Just three high schools attended, Christian Academy Japan, Seisen International and St. Mary’s International; others chose not to compete, citing rain and cold weather – which has been the pattern all season.
Congratulations to four individual athletes and three relay teams that qualified for next month’s Far East meet at Yokota:
-- Sam Johnson, CAJ, 300 hurdles, 42.88 seconds (fully automated timing).
-- Theresa Kern and Maku Itakura, Seisen, 3,000, 12 minutes, 14.3 seconds and 12:20.2.
-- Kendra Peterson, CAJ, discus, 24.81 meters (81 feet, 5 inches).
-- CAJ boys, St. Mary’s boys and CAJ girls, 3,200 relay, 9:13.0, 9:20.9 and 11:32.1.
Saturday’s schedule shows Kanto split meets, one at Oi Pier Grounds, the other at Yokota, followed by the Kanto Plain finals April 28 at Yokota; May 5 is the fallback rain date, and given the nasty weather this season, it may be needed.
