With junior Sunny Margerum winning three individual events and getting its usual solid performances in the distances, the Gunn girls' track and field team finished a strong second at the SCVAL De Anza Division Track and Field Championships on Thursday at Los Gatos High. The Titans scored 98 points to trail only heavily favored Mountain View, which finished with 117. Palo Alto was well back in seventh place with 20 points.

The versatile Margerum won her specialties, as expected. She easily took the 100 high hurdles in 15.22, clocked a season best of 45.91 to win the 300 hurdles (just off her school record of 45.57) and captured the long jump with a leap of 17-5. To round out her busy day, Margerum also finished third in the 100 in 12.64.

Gunn freshman Kieran Gallagher came up big by winning the 800 in 2:17.03 over Mountain View senior Mary Reynolds (2:18.75). That moved Gallagher to No. 3 in school history. Another talented freshman, Julia Maggioncalda led a one-two Gunn sweep in the high jump with a winning mark of 5-2. Fellow freshman Sigrunn Sky was second at 5 feet. Senior Allegra Mayer led the Gunn distance crew with a second in the 3,200 of 11:35.75, that coming after a third-place finish in the 1,600 of 5:06.68. Sophomore Erin Robinson was fourth in that race in a big personal best of 5:11.12 to rank No. 6 in school history while junior Lisa Fawcett was third in the metric two-miler in 11:36.94.
