LONG BEACH, CALIF. > TRACK AND FIELD
Ariana, a sophomore at Long Beach Poly, anchored the defending champions to a come-from-behind win in the 4 × 100 meters at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia (46.35 seconds). She received the baton in fourth place and crossed the tape to win by .14, as the Jackrabbits became the first U.S. girls' team to repeat as event champions in the meet's 118-year history. Ariana also had the top American long jump finish (third place) and was named high school girls' athlete of the meet for relay events.
GLASTONBURY, CONN. > TRACK AND FIELD
Cabral, a senior and team captain at Princeton, won the Ivy League Heptagonal 10K and steeplechase to lead the Tigers to their second straight triple crown—championship titles in each running season: cross-country and indoor and outdoor track. A week earlier at the Penn Relays he anchored Princeton to a victory in the distance medley relay (4:05.8 in the final 1,600 meters) and a repeat win in the 4 x mile (3:59.9 split) to be named college men's athlete of the meet for relay events.
