The Palo Alto boys' track and field team didn't duplicate last season's perfect dual-meet record in the SCVAL De Anza Division, but the Vikings got some satisfaction from its 4-2 mark this season -- topped by Thursday's 80-47 triumph over visiting Gunn. The Vikings were too deep in the sprints and distances and added some young talent in the throws to post the impressive triumph. Senior Paul Brown was solid for Paly, running a leg on the winning 400 relay (43.3), winning the 400 (50.6) and taking second in the 200 to teammate Daniel Jones (22.3). The 200 was the best race of the evening as Jones, Brown and Gunn's Charles Chisom all were timed in 22.3. Paly junior Philip MacQuitty took a shot at the school record in the 1,600 but came up five seconds shot while winning the mile in 4:20.7. For Gunn, Chisom won the 100 in 10.9, edging Jones in a dead heat while junior Kazzie Hill had a big personal best of 20-9 1/2 to win the long jump.
