Erica Schroeder Finishes 2nd in 800 at Stanford Invitational

Defending CIF State 800-meter champion Erica Schroeder of San Marcos got a look at top competition from other states and northern California on Saturday at the Stanford Invitational.

Schroeder finished second to Arizona Rio Rico's Allie Schadler in very close 800 race. Schadler, the Gatorade State Cross County Runner of the Year in Arizona, ran a personal best of 2:10.11 to edge Schroeder, who came in at 2:10.63. Both runners are juniors.

Schroeder also ran the mile on Saturday, won her heat and placed sixth overall in 4:54.85. The winning time was 4:49.12 by Harvard-bound Brooke Starn of Monte Vista High in the Bay Area.

San Marcos earned top-10 finishes in three other events at Stanford. Jenny Nnoli placed eighth in the 100 meters with a time of 12.47. She ran a personal best o 12.28 in the prelims. Chloe Allen came in fifth in the shot put at 36-6.75 and the girls 4x100 relay team (Danielle Anderson, Jenny Nnoli, Olivia Jones, Allie Jones) finished seventh in 49.46. It qualified at 49.39.

The Royals girls 4x400 relay (Jenny Nnoli, Olivia Jones, Devon Block-Funkhouser, Abbey Willett) placed 11th in 4:01.93.

In other results, Tyson Miller clocked 50.12 in the 400; Kele Mkpado was time in 15.342 in the 110 hurdles, Allie Jones went 15.62 in the girls 100 hurdles and Carolyn Weisman leaped 35-00.25 in the triple jump.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
