Menlo School's Parker runs to the front in the 800

 

Menlo School senior Sam Parker leads the pack in the 800 meters on the 2011 Boys' Central Coast Section Track and Field leaders' list following a solid two-win weekend at the annual K-Bell Invitational on Saturday at Los Gatos High.

Parker won the 800 in a CCS-leading 1:55.67 and also won the 400, which ranks third on season's initial rankings. Priory senior Arnaud Kpachavi, who finished sixth in the K-Bell 800 in 2:01.06, ranks seventh in that event in CCS.

Stas DellaMorte of Menlo-Atherton was fourth in the long jump at 20-10 1/4 and that ties him for No. 3 on the CCS list.
