“The Buchanan Distance Classic was held at the beautiful Veteran’s Memorial track stadium at Buchanan High School in Clovis, the site of the CIF State Track & Field Championships, and followed strict COVID guidelines including masking and social distancing,” Walsh said. “Due to qualification standards for the meet, the Bishop Union athletes have had to work very hard to get such a quality running opportunity.”

They took Senior Sierra Burror, Juniors Dominic Westervelt, Diego Honda, Ezra Spoonhunter, Sophmore Brandon Gardea, and Freshmans Ashley Fitt and Alexander Adkins.

Diego Honda ran the 1600 meters with a time of (4:43.30) and the 3200 meters with a time of (10:17.50). Dominic Westervelt ran the 800 meters and the 1600 meters with times of (2:06.20) and (4:40.54)
