Parker, Gregory run to all-WBAL track honors in 2011


It was quite a season for Menlo School senior Sam Parker as he won two individual titles at the West Bay Athletic League finals, finished second at the CCS championships and ran a lifetime best of 1:53.52 in the 800 meters in the preliminaries of the CIF State Track and Field Championships. Not too surprising, Parker is the WBAL's track MVP in 2011.

For the girls' Priory junior Kat Gregory won MVP track honors after sweeping the 1,600 and 3,200 at the league finals.
