Seven Foothill League athletes will take part in today’s CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet at Cerritos College.

The Masters Meet will begin at 4:30 p.m. with boys discus and girls shot put, while the track events commence at 6 p.m.

The meet takes the top 12 performances from the CIF-SS Divisional championships – regardless of division – in the 800, 1,600, 3,200 and field events, while the top nine performances qualify in the rest of the events.

Saugus will send five athletes, including a pair of CIF-SS Division II champions. Senior Daniel Swarbrick won the discus title with a throw of 178 feet, 8 inches, and he will also take part in the shot put after finishing third overall with a toss of 60-2 3/4.

Sophomore Kaylin Mahoney headlines a Saugus contingent in the 3,200-meter run. Mahoney won the CIF-SS Div. II championship with a time of 10 minutes, 38.91 seconds, second overall only to San Clemente senior Alexandra Dunne, who checked in at 10:33.24.

Sophomore Stephanie Bulder, freshman Karis Frankian and senior Anne Randall will also run the 3,200. Bulder pushed Mahoney to the limit at the divisional championships by finishing in 10:38.94, while Frankian ran the race in 10:44.35, and Randall crossed at 10:46.39.

Bulder and Randall also qualified for the 1,600, with times of 4:54.95 and 4:55.24, respectively.

Valencia has two athletes competing in the Masters Meet. Senior Aly Drake ran an excellent race in the 800 to win the CIF-SS Div. I championship in 2:09.95, which was the top time overall. Sophomore Jasmine Hall was one of seven qualifiers to clear 5-5 in the high jump, and she will join Drake at the Masters Meet at Cerritos for her efforts.

In addition to those seven athletes, the Foothill League will have two alternates for today’s Masters Meet.

Canyon senior Courtney Saunders is the second alternate in the discus after a toss of 119-4 at the divisional championships, while West Ranch sophomore Jennifer Owen is the second alternate in the 1,600 after finishing the Division I race in 4:59.26.

Alternates are determined by the two next-best times in each event, and will step in should one of the qualifiers drops out.
