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.
