For being a freshman, Alyssa Bean is an incredible athlete, running a Poway High School record of 56.15. Besides the sprints, we also had three pole vaulters. Camren Thomson, who stayed at 13 feet, Mia Cervantes who jumped 12 feet 4 inches, and Kat Adameic who vaulted 12 feet 8 inches.

“I had a great time at State, and throughout this track season. I’m glad that I was able to run the best time of my season. It was amazing to see all the incredible athletes strive to move on,” Bean said.
