JSerra senior records third-fastest mile in U.S. this year to lead a contingent of local athletes who qualify for state finals during Friday’s CIF Southern Section Masters Meet.
She did it again.
A week after taking down a 28-year-old record in the 1600 meters at the CIF Southern Section championships at Cerritos College, JSerra senior Katherine Delaney was back in Norwalk Friday for the Masters Meet and turning heads again, this time by chalking up the third-fastest current mile mark in the United States, a 4 minute 42.95-second gem, good for first place overall by a wide margin.
Ten Orange County high school seniors who have spent hundreds of hours of their time on ambitious community service projects have won $5,000 college scholarships from the Disneyland Resort.
The selected students were surprised at their schools by a Disneyland Resort “prize patrol” team and honored at a dinner gala Wednesday at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.
“Each year, I enjoy hearing about the tremendous achievements of our Disneyland Resort Scholarship recipients and I’m amazed by the exciting work they accomplish,” Disneyland Resort President George A. Kalogridis said in a statement. “The special role they play in our local communities is invaluable, and the acts of leadership and commitment they’ve shown through their service is something we all are proud of.”

“I just feel honored,” Delaney said of toppling Prieur’s mark. “I feel like that’s all my hard work right there, and I feel like it’s really paying off now. It’s just a relief to see it. I’m exhilarated, and it sparks my love for running. It just motivates me to go faster.”
