GLENDALE — More than a dozen athletes from the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and St. Francis High track and field teams participated in the Mission League finals Thursday at L.A. Valley College.
While none of them captured league supremacy, many of them punched their ticket to the CIF Southern Section division prelims.
Eight Tologs and two Golden Knights will compete in the prelims, which will be held May 15 at different venues.
Sacred Heart received five second-place finishes to reach the Division IV prelims at Carpinteria High. St. Francis had a second- and third-place finisher to move on to the Division III prelims at Estancia High.
Noelle Niederhaus and Drew Washington finished second and third, respectively, in the 400-meter race. Paulina Antaplyan placed second in the 1,600- and 3,200 events and Hailey James was second in the 300 low hurdles. The Tologs also placed second in both relays.
