2013: Some Locals Stood Out at Clovis

Rick : June 3, 2013 5:21 pm : Track & Field

San Diego Section athletes in both genders stepped up in the Saturday finals of last week’s state track and field championships.

The college-like campus at Clovis’ Buchanan  High was a wonderful venue for the 95th Boys’ championship and 40th Girls’ meet and drew more than 17,000 persons over two days.

Saturday’s finals began under a late-afternoon sun, in heat that reached 100 degrees, and after many from the local contingent of 90 entries were  eliminated  in Friday’s trials.

My Saturday favorites:

1–Hannah Labrie-Smith, Cathedral Catholic.  She revealed a strong competitive edge when the sophomore battled back from a potentially disastrous mid-race crisis.

Leading coming into the homestretch turn, Labrie-Smith was thrown off stride when she struck a hurdle and fell back to fifth place.  Composing herself, Hannah knocked off two runners near the finish line  and nudged into third place in :42.58, after coming within 1/10 of a second of Gale Devers’ 1984 Section record of :42.26 on Friday.

2–Poway’s 4×400 relay team.  San Diego teams almost never post a good time in this event before the Section finals or, more often,  the state trials.  Maybe it’s because coaches are trying to win dual meets and enter their best runners in multiple events each week.

Poway was sixth in  a very strong field but its time of 3:15.78 was almost six seconds better than what it was running a month ago.  The Titans overcame a terrible pass on the first exchange.  They had virtually lost contact with the field halfway into the second lap but rallied and finished with the 13th best 4×400 in Section history.

3–Alex Grigoriev, Rancho Bernardo.  At one point Grigoriev was running in 11th place but he didn’t panic, climbing the hill to third  with a career best  of 1:51.61, No. 8 all-time in  the section.

4– Dotun Ogundeji, Madison.  I feel that winning a state championship is not always the ultimate. Ogundeji has to feel good about himself.

An unheralded junior, Ogundeji was the only local athlete to qualify for two finals events.

A two-way lineman on Madison’s 2012 State III championship football team, Dotun added more than a foot to his previous best, coming in at  58-11 3/4 for sixth in the shotput and was out of the money in the discus but still managed an excellent 175-2.

5–Melissa Mongiovi, West Hills.  She let the field get too far ahead but blazed a finish that got Mongiovi a fifth-place medal.  Melissa’s 54.70 400 meters is No. 7 all-time in San Diego and she has two more years and enough time to get over the habit of  having too much left at the finish.

6–Brenden Song, West Hills.  The San Diego Section’s only gold medalist, Song won the discus by three inches at 188-8 after finishing second in 2012 and third in Friday’s trials.

7–All of the others who got to Saturday and earned medals or came up with personal bests.

2013: Cathedral Sophomore Chases Devers

Rick : June 1, 2013 2:05 pm : Track & Field

CLOVIS—Twenty-one of San Diego’s 90 entries qualified yesterday for this evening’s 95th State track-and-field championships at Buchanan High.

In arguably a mediocre season for the San Diego Section, a strong season finish is possible.

The state meet is the event in which winning is not always more important than improving on a personal best or setting a section record. The trials were satisfying enough.

Sophomore Hannah Labrie-Smith of Cathedral Catholic had the third-fastest effort in the 300-meter hurdles but her time of :42.27 was one-tenth of a second off Gail Devers’ section record.

Labrie-Smith should draw a good lane assignment tonight as she challenges one of the oldest records in the books, set in 1984 by Sweetwater’s future Olympic hurdles champion.

The meet was more than two hours old before Labrie-Smith became the first San Diego Section entry to record a season best.  She bettered her 100-meter time with a nonqualifying, wind-okay :12.2.

Alex Grigoriev of Rancho Bernardo is positioned for a run in the 800 meters.  He finished strongly in his heat, running career best of 1:51.90, second fastest qualifying time behind the 1:51.6 of Bakersfield Ridgeview’s Ivan Gonzalez.

Otay Ranch’s Carina Gillespie ran 2:11.10 for the second fastest girls 800.

Christian Freeman of Carlsbad dropped out of 1,600 to devote to the 3,200 tonight.  He has the fastest qualifying time going in, 9:03.51.

Poway’s boys 4×400 relay team is in a loaded field and seeded only ninth tonight, but the Titans ran 3:17.43, an improvement of almost four seconds in the last month.  They’ll probably have go well under 3:17 to earn a medal.

Other  possibilities include Brendan Song in the discus and Sydney Rush-Dunigan in the long jump.  Song’s 194-4 is the best throw in the state this year but the West Hills senior hasn’t hit that mark since April and was fourth in qualifying yesterday at 184-1.

Point Loma’s Rush-Dunigan, seemingly always struggling to find a good launch point, overcame five consecutive fouls (including three last week in the section meet) and reached 24-0 ½ to qualify third on the final jump of the competition.

Madison’s Doton Ogundeji was the only double qualifier, eighth in the discus at 173-6 and 10th in the shot put at 56-11 ¾.

2013: Pat Shea, 73; Mission Bay and Chargers

Rick : May 29, 2013 3:14 pm : Football, Track & Field

Pat Shea, a starting right guard on the San Diego Chargers’ 1963 American Football League championship team and a legendary Mission Bay High athlete,  passed away in Encinitas recently at age 73.

Youthful Shea as Mission Bay star in 1958.

Youthful Shea as Mission Bay star in 1958.

Shea won the 1958 CIF Southern Section heavyweight wrestling championship for the Buccaneers and was  the ’58 City Prep League track championships shot put winner with a best of 55 feet, 9 1/4 inches.  At that time Shea’s mark was the third best ever by a city schools athlete.

Shea played in the annual Breitbard Foundation College Prep All-Star game featuring players from San Diego County versus Los Angeles City and was a lineman at San Diego Junior College  before moving on to the University of Southern California.

Shea recalled his days with the Chargers and at Mission Bay in classmate Bill Swank’s acclaimed book about the beach-area school, “Gold Leather Helmets – Black Hightop Shoes”:

“When I think about coaches at Mission Bay, I think about coach (Chuck) Coover,” said Shea.  “I loved him.  He was quiet, but he also paid special attention to me.  He saw something in me.”

Shea remembered Don Donnelly as his favorite classroom teacher and the difficulty of matching wrestling holds with coach Walt Romanowski.

“Romanowski tied me up,” Shea told Swank.  “I outweighed him and I didn’t know how he did it.  Romanowski and Coover were guys you wanted to please.”

Shea was known as a rough and tumble figure in his younger days in Pacific Beach and the coastal communities.  He was the second Shea to attend the new Mission Bay High, which opened in 1953.

Shea, Frank Schiefer, and Randy Chaffin were Buccaneers' shot put specialists.

Shea, Frank Schiefer, and Randy Chaffin were Buccaneers’ shot put specialists.

Pat followed Bob Shea, who  was a starter on early Buccaneers basketball teams in 1954-55 and ’55-56 and went on to a career as a life guard and administrator.

Pat Shea played at San Diego Junior College for two seasons and two years at the University of Southern California.  He made the Chargers as a rookie free agent in 1962 and concluded his career with the Chargers in 1965.

Chargers line coach Joe Madro was particularly fond of Shea.  The taskmaster Madro usually addressed Pat by Shea’s middle name, Beardsley, and appreciated Shea’s toughness and competitive spirit.

Shea said that he appreciated Chargers coach Sid Gillman but did not like general manager Gillman.  “I liked him,” Shea remembered, “until I had to negotiate a contract with him.”

2013: Next Up, San Diego Section Trials

Rick : May 14, 2013 10:03 am : Track & Field

Hot weather and hot tracksters are heating up  the San Diego Section.

Twelve section bests were recorded in league finals last week and the real racing (and jumping, vaulting, and throwing) begins with the Section trials, an all-day carnival at Mt. Carmel High  Saturday.

STATE MEET IS GOAL

Qualifiers move on to the section finals May 25 and the champions and other survivors head north to Buchanan High in Clovis for the 96th State meet May 31-June 1.

The starter’s pistol will echo often as more than 100 races will be contested, beginning at 9:30 a.m. with the first heat of the girls’ 400-meter relay and ending with the sixth and final heat of the  boys’ 1,600-meter relay at 5:59 p.m,

The track events will be accompanied by at least 24 field event competitions.

At least 1,000 athletes will be on hand.  Nine competitors in  each event will qualify for the May 25 Masters meet, which will run concurrently with a B-level meet for additional athletes who met a qualifying standard.

Bring a sufficient amount of sun block lotion or spray and stay hydrated.

The Mt. Carmel concession stand hot dogs and hamburgers are recommended.

MONGIOVI IMPROVES IN 400

Most impressive league finals performances included a :54.99 400 by Melissa Mongiovi of West Hills. Her time was seventh fastest in San Diego Section history.

Suzie Acolatse of Mission Hills moved to 10th in the 100 meters after an :11.85 clocking and Cathedral’s Hannah Labrie-Smith is now 11th after her :14.53 in the 110 hurdles.

2013: Augie Escamilla, 90

Rick : May 11, 2013 4:52 pm : Track & Field

Three of Escamilla's 1947 Boys' Club "Bat Busters"went on to play for chmpionship San Diego High football teams, including  Eddie Heard, Don Bransford, Don Strickland, and Willie West.

Escamilla coached hundreds of Boys’ Club teams, notably 1947’s  “Bat Busters”. Eddie Heard, Don Bransford, Don Strickland, and Willie West played for championship San Diego High football squads in 1954-55.

Augustine (Augie)  Escamilla, whose voice was heard at major track meets in San Diego  for more than 30 years and who was a respected educator and coach for five decades, passed away on  May 1 at age 90.  A  service will be held at Greenwood Mortuary on May 21.

Virtually every outstanding San Diego High or Lincoln  athlete in the 1940s and ‘fifties came under the guidance of coach Escamilla, who served 14 years in administrative capacities at the Boys’ Club of San Diego and at Memorial Junior High in Logan Heights.

Augie also was a counselor at  junior and senior high schools for the San Diego City Schools’ Health Department for 10 years  and was an academic counselor for 21 years at San Diego City College.

Escamilla was well known for his calls at the annual San Diego Section track championships.  When an  outstanding performance took place on the field, you could depend on Augie to begin an announcement, “Listen to this one, ladies and gentlemen!…”

He also usually informed the crowd that “Your announcer had the pleasure last night of attending the Southern Section finals at Cerritos College….”

The Southern Section championships on Friday night preceded the next afternoon’s San Diego Section meet.

Escamilla was born in the Mexican state of Jalisco. His father immigrated to New Mexico in search of employment, then was followed by Augie, age 6;  his mother and two sisters in 1929.  The family eventually settled in Fillmore in Ventura County.

Escamilla was devoted runner and competed in many Masters events.

A FUTURE AZTEC

Augie ran track at Fillmore High and was a student leader in the class of 1940.  His senior class advisor and one of the school’s track coaches saw promise and contacted C.E. Peterson, San Diego State’s legendary coach, who invited Escamilla to attend the school and turn out for track.

Augie was a distance runner who never stopped running.  He still was competing in his fifties.  Escamilla was running the mile in under five minutes on the Masters track circuit, which was popular in the 1960s and ‘seventies.

1959: St. Augustine Gets a Track and Field Home

Rick : April 8, 2013 1:00 am : Track & Field

One of St. Augustine’s vagabond teams finally was getting a home.

A 330-yard track and field oval would provide the Saints a facility for dual-meet, track-and-field competition beginning in 1960.

Football and baseball would still have to travel to  games. Basketball teams had a home since a gymnasium/auditorium was constructed in time for the 1952 school year.

That the running surface of the track was short of the standard, 440-yard oval was  result of property lines and geography. The expanse surrounded by Palm Street on the North, Nutmeg on the South,  32nd Street on the West and 33rd on the East was not large enough for a regulation track.

The football team, which was about to enjoy the first undefeated season in the school’s 37-year history, was forced to moved practice to the intramural, lower field.

The track’s circumference created some oddities and posed a challenge to those responsible   for staggering lanes and chalking for various events.

The most obvious adjustment was required for hurdlers.  They would start the 120-yard high barriers on a curve and would be required to cover more than half the oval in the 180-yard lows.

Years later the Saints were able to close Bancroft Avenue from Nutmeg to Palm and widen the field into a soccer venue.

The Saints hit the road again for their track meets.
