2018 San Diego Section Track & Field Guidebook

The San Diego Track & Field Guide was started in 1965 and maintains a list of the top performances in each event from that time on. Coronado has some very good marks on our record board but most fall a little short of what’s required to make this list. For the 2018 version there are only four Coronado athletes still on. Others have dropped off as marks have improved over time.

  1. Jamie Klages made the list for the girls’ high jump in 2005 with a leap of 5 feet 10 1/4 inches. At the time this was the best mark in the country and she’s currently ranked #3 all-time for the San Diego section.
  2. Erik Armes made the list for the boys’ 1600 meter run in 2015 with a time of 4:10.09. He’s currently running for Auburn on an athletic scholarship.
  3. Alysah Hickey made the list for the girls’ 100 meter dash in 2016 and dipped under 12 seconds last season to move up a bit with a time of 11.96. She also was the section leader in the high jump with a mark of 5 feet 7 inches.
  4. Teresa Perez joined this elite group last season by breaking the school record in the 800 with a time of 2:13.38. Any other season this would have advanced her to the state meet, and she missed last year by only 7/100 of a second. In 2018 she comes back in a virtual tie for the top spot in the county.

Both Erick and Jamie were all-state performers in their respective events. Alysah and Teresa are both juniors, so they have two seasons left. Between the two several more school records are bound to fall.

Alysah currently holds the school records for the 100, 200, and 4×100. She long jumped over 18 feet at USATF Nationals this fall to best the current school record, set by Maddy Hopson in 2013, by 4.5 inches, but it didn’t count because it wasn’t during track season. She also clipped 5-9 with her heel on the way down in the high jump during USATF competition. If Kerry Elders, our high jump coach, has anything to say about it, that high jump record of Klages’ may not be out of range.

Teresa had a great Cross Country season that included a course record on the Morley Field course, a 2-mile run that was equivalent to our current 3200 meter record, a win at the Mt. SAC D-IV sweeps, and a 3-mile run under 17 minutes at the Woodbridge classic.

You can access the Guidebook on our website at IslanderTrack.com. Do a search in it for Coronado to see all our athletes who made last season’s top mark list… there are lots. It’s also on sdtrackmag.com, a site I maintain for the San Diego Track and Cross Country community with results going back decades.
