Getting a handful of personal bests, the Palo Alto boys’ track and field team raced past host Los Gatos, 80-47, in a SCVAL De Anza Division dual meet on Thursday. The Vikings got things rolling with a quick 44.25 victory in the 400 relay with Paul Brown running the second leg. That was just a tuneup for Brown, who returned to win the 400 in a personal best of 50.97 and capture the 200 in 22.85, another big PR. Paly junior Philip MacQuitty, who ran a PR in the 3,200 at last weekend’s Arcadia Invitational, showed his speed this time and won the 800 in a big personal record of 1:55.99. The Vikings also won five of the six field events for the first time this season, losing only an uncontested pole vault.
