Girls' 1600 meter record
Katherine Wingert 5:03.82

(1500 meter split 4:45.2)
CIF Prelims 2004

From her freshman year to her senior year Katherine always gave her races everything she had, often running four events for team points. For all four years she was the Harbor League champion in the 800, 1600, and 3200 meter runs.

Now that more 1500 meter runs are being contested at the high school level we took a split for that distance during her record 1600 meter race to establish a 1500 meter school record.

It's safe to say that no other girl has run faster than her split of 4:45.2.

In addition to her 1500 and 1600 records she ran the anchor leg on the record 4x400 relay team.

From the 10th grade on Jessica Lunt was one of the top 800 and 1600 meter contenders in San Diego. She was also one of the hardest workers and most coachable athletes I've had the pleasure to work with. I can still hear some of her teammates complaining that all Jessica had to do is show up, that she didn't have to train.JessicaLuntAward.jpg (15661 bytes) What they didn't see was the hundreds of miles she put in during the summer and winter breaks. I know because I ran them with her. For most of the time when she was at CHS, track preseason training consisted of Jessica and her coach running around Coronado. It obviously paid off for her as she had a great running career at UCSB and still runs today.
