The Menlo School girls' and boys' track and field teams won their respective West Bay Athletic League meet No. 2 -- each securing convincing overall wins Wednesday at home. Alec Drobac once again was a quadruple winner. He won the 110 high hurdles in 17.58 and the 300 hurdles in 44.62. He finished with a mark of 19-4 1/2 in the long jump and 38-10 in the triple jump, winning both events.

Max Parker captured the 100 with a time of 11.91, then took second in the 200 in 24.13. Parker ran the anchor leg on both relay teams that took second place. Matt Myers ran away with the 800, finishing in 2:04.66 and ran a leg in the 4x400 relay. Paul Touma cleared 5-4 to win the high jump and took third in the long jump.

Menlo’s Laura Gradiska emerged as a quadruple winner when she won both hurdles events – the 300 in 52.17 and the 100 in 17.99. She also kicked off both winning relay teams. The 400 team of Gradiska, Shannon Lacy, Elisa Merten and Ellie Still won in 52.57. Lacy, Gradiska and Merten joined Maddy Price for the victorious 1,600 team, which won in 4:26.46.

Price also captured the 400, topping 18 other runners with the only sub-minute time (58.88). Lacy won the 200 with a time of 27.54. Morgan Dressel’s shot put of 32-11 earned a second-place finish.
