HS and MS track and field teams compete at Yokota in biggest meet of season

CAJ's high school and middle school track and field teams had another meet at Yokota on Saturday. It was the biggest meet of the year for the Knights, and the strong competition pushed many CAJ athletes to strong performances.

The high school athletes were able to achieve a total of 15 personal records, which is down a bit from most previous meets. However, many of the performances were either season bests or very close to personal records. CAJ had numerous high finishes, despite the high number of athletes at the meet. These were CAJ's individuals and relay teams that placed near the top in the high school division (Far East qualifying marks are denoted with an asterisk):
