|2017 Update: Renee Phillips now holds both the 3000 and 3200 meter records. At the 2017 City League Finals she ran 11:02.25 for the 3200 meter run. Earlier in the year, at the Rossi Relays she ran 10:22.58 to better her 2016 record time for the 3000 meter run.|
|Shamen Dugger's 3200 meter record stood the test of time for 30 years but in 2016 we had 2 girls break her record within one month.
The first to crack the record was Renee Phillips who ran 11:14.99 at the Escondido Invite on April 29. Renee had previously run a better equivalent time of 10:27.95 for 3000 meters at the Stanford Invite on April 1. However for the 3200 we can't use equivalent times because the difference in distance is too large. At the final meet of the season Jasmine Rippey broke Renee's record by 1.34 seconds at the CIF finals by running 11:13.65.
Current School record holder for both the 3000 and 3200 meter runs, Renee Phillips.
The 3000 record was set at the Stanford Invitational with a time of 10:27.95 on April 1, 2016.
In 2017 she lowered it to 10:22.58 at the Rossi Relays.
The record was set at CIF Finals on
If it weren't for Renee Phillips' and Jasmine Rippey's times shown above the School Record for the 3200 meter run would belong to Teresa Perez. Two weeks before she broke the school record for the 800 at the 2017 CIF finals she finished 2nd behind Renee Phillips in the 3200 with a time of 11:14.44.
The photo to the left was taken during that race where Renee and Teresa ran their best times for the season at the League Finals. During the 2017 Cross Country season Teresa won the two mile event in 11:06.37 on the University City Track at the Hoka One One Postal Two Mile Championships. When converted to 3200, this time is equivalent to the current record. Conversly Renee's 3200 time of 12:02.25 converts to a 2-mile time that's equivalent to Teresa's time. Because this is a close conversion and more importantly because Teresa's time was run during cross country season, not track, it didn't count as a school record. In 2016 Renee, Jasmine, and Teresa led the Islanders to the San Diego CIF Division IV Cross Country Championship and went on to place 4th in the State Meet.

Shamen Dugger 11:18.69
It's difficult enough for a high school girl to break 5:40 in the 1600 but Shamen Dugger did it twice in a row without stopping at San Diego State in 1986 while lowering the school's 3200 meter record to 11:18.69. Not only did she excel in spring track she was the #1 runner on the cross country team for her last 3 years, the #1 singles player on the tennis team her last two years and carried a 4.2 GPA.
In cross country she won the league title 3 years in a row. In tennis she won the South Bay league championship her last 2 years. As a sophomore, junior, and senior she was voted MVP for both teams. Now here's the rub. The girls tennis season and cross country are concurrent. She did them both at the same time!
For her achievements, Dugger was honored by the Union Tribune as the 1986 female Student-Athlete of the year; all this in a 4' 11", 80 pound strawberry blond package.
