soph., Crescenta Valley
When she was at her best, Moultrie could challenge and even beat anyone, including teammate and All-Area Runner of the Year Claudia Pham. Arguably turned in her best performance of the year at the Pacific League finals at Griffith Park, when she finished second overall to lead the Falcons to a league title in 18 minutes 51 seconds. Was the Falcons’ top finisher at the second league meet of the season at CV Park, as well, finishing in 19:04.
The Bulldogs’ perennial front runner of the past few seasons, she was an All-Pacific League standout, finishing fourth at the league finals at Griffith Park in 18:57. She also ran a solid 19:07 at the Mt. SAC invite.

Rio Hondo League champion led the Spartans to a team title, as well, claiming victory at the league finals at Crescenta Valley Park in a time of 19:29. Ran a 19-flat, turning in the best local time, at the CIF prelims at Mt. SAC in what proved to be her final race of the season. It was a 45-second improvement from her run earlier in the season at the Mt. SAC invite.
COACH OF THE YEAR
It certainly was not the longtime coach’s most successful season, as a string of state and CIF championship berths came to a halt.
It might have been his finest hour coaching, though.
With a team that had just one senior in its top five at any time, the Falcons rebounded from a loss to rival Arcadia in the first Pacific League meet of the season to win their seventh straight league title. And, perhaps most impressively, won at the league finals without the services of All-Area Runner of the Year Claudia Pham.
