Track & Field News

Host College of San Mateo crowned three women state champions and finished sixth at the California Community College Athletic Association Track and Field Championships Friday and Saturday at College Heights Stadium.

Yan-Jun “Sophie” Liao has already become the most accomplished College of San Mateo women’s sprinter this century. Now, she is shooting for the best standing in program history.

Having grown up in Taipei City, Yan-Jun “Sophie” Liao relocated to Foster City late last year for the opportunity to further an already prestigious amateur track and field career. As a freshman at College of San Mateo, she has certainly done that, having emerged as one of the greatest sprinters in the history of the women’s program.

If you’re a track and field fan, I suggest you take in a College of San Mateo track meet before one of the best sprinters you’ll ever get to see in person moves on.

There is a track and field smorgasbord Saturday on the Peninsula as two big-name meets will be contested. Serra hosts the annual Top 7, while up the hill, College of San Mateo hosts the just as iconic Bob Rush State Meet Preview.

This summer, the inspirational former CSM Track Coach Joe Mangan was inducted into the California Community College Cross Country/Track and Field Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was held August 4 at the group’s annual convention in Walnut Creek.

Caroline Trevithick high jumped 5 feet, 3 3/4 inches, beating the current state leader, as College of San Mateo hosted the annual Bob Rush Track & Field Invitational Friday. She now ranks third in the state.

This year, CSM was proud to induct 19 women and men, who have distinguished themselves either as CSM athletes or later in their careers, into the Sports Hall of Fame at a banquet held on February 9.

Regardless of what happens in Super Bowl LII, there’s a celebration awaiting Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots. The longtime slot receiver will be inducted into the College of San Mateo Hall of Fame on Feb. 9. Edelman is scheduled to attend the event as part of an 18-member class that also includes Giants broadcaster Jon Miller.

College of San Mateo Jack Phillips claimed the community college state championship in the men’s high jump. And he put himself in the Bulldogs history books doing it.
