Menlo grad Price continues to set record on the track


Maddy Price made a habit of breaking records while at Menlo School during a standout career that featured a silver medal in the 400 meters at the 2014 CIF State Track and Field Championships.

Price is now a freshman at Duke University, but she continues to take down records.

Last weekend, Price helped break two Duke track and field marks -- in the 4x200 relay (1:36.45) and 4x400 relay (3:36.78) --as the Blue Devils finished second in both races at the Armory Track Invitational in New York City. Price competed in cross country, basketball and track during her Menlo career.

Elsewhere, Menlo grad Sam Parker, a senior at MIT, ran a season best of 1:51.98 in the 800 while taking ninth among 139 entrants at the John Thomas Classic at Boston University. Parker was 14th in the 500 (1:04.83). Parker participated in cross country, soccer and track at Menlo.

Current Menlo freshman Robert Miranda opened his track and field season last weekend at the University of California and ran 9:48 in the 3,200 in the pouring rain and windy conditions. He's competing in the State Indoor Championships this Sunday at Fresno's SaveMart Auditorium.


Barrie Bulmore, who won CCS singles titles in 1977 and '78 while at Gunn High, is one of 12 Model Coach Award winners, as announced by the CIF State Office this week.

Now in its 14th year, the CIF Model Coach Award program is designed to recognize coaches who have served as positive role models in their schools and communities, and who have exhibited the traits apparent in the 16 principles of Pursuing Victory with Honorsm.

A model coach demonstrates and teaches the six core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship (the "Six Pillars of Character"). The CIF believes that the highest potential of sports is achieved when teachers/coaches consciously Teach, Enforce, Advocate and Model (T.E.A.M.) these values and are committed to the ideal of Pursuing Victory with Honors.

Bulmore has coached tennis at Head-Royce in Oakland since 2002. She is dedicated to the school's tennis program, which encompasses far more than just the team at Head-Royce. She introduced tennis to the middle school P.E. curriculum, and coaches the middle school team as well as both Head-Royce boys and girls teams. She also runs the after-school and summer tennis programs, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Berkeley Tennis Club.
