LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Stephanie Vargas played a role in shattering two school records, yet she wasn't aware that had been accomplished.
The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy track and field athlete diligently went about her business on the St. Francis High all-weather track Wednesday afternoon during a Mission League dual meet against Chaminade and left impressed with her latest accomplishments.
"I didn't know, but it's great," Vargas said after she clocked 2 minutes 18.96 seconds to win the 800-meter race and help the Tologs post a 73-34 victory. "In the 800, I thought of it more as a 400 workout to help decrease the pressure and I was able to run a smart race.
"I've been running the 800 since fifth grade and I tried last year to break the school record, but it didn't work out."
Vargas opened the meet by working with Noëlle Niederhaus, Daelyn Moon and Drew Washington to win the 4x100 relay in a school-record time of 50.21 seconds.
