Athletes of the Week

Posted April 28, 2017

Zoe Lusk
Palo Alto swimming

The junior helped the Vikings win two titles within four days of each other. She won two individual events and swam on two winning relays in Palo Alto's victory over Gunn last week, clinching the SCVAL dual-meet title. She repeated her efforts over the weekend as the Vikings won the Section Challenge at Sacred Heart Prep.


Robert Miranda
Menlo track & field

The junior distance runner has been making steady progress since missing the cross country season with an injury. At the CCS Top 8 meet over the weekend, Miranda placed second in both the 1,600 and 3,200 meters, establishing a personal best in the 1,600 with a time of 4:14.85, seven seconds better than he ran last year.
