The Board also recognized Pasadena High School Senior Isaiah Givens who began running track and cross country as a Freshman. His running career took off in Junior year as he became Pacific League Champion for the 3200 meters event, running 8:53 and breaking the 40-year-old school record of 8:58. He also became a CIF champ, finishing 10th overall in the Division 3 of the Southern Section.
Givens says he is most thankful to PHS “for facilitating the growth of the team both in cross country and track where I’ve formed some of my strongest relationships with my best friends, who’ve competed with me, who I went onto the post-season with, and who train with me every day.“
He has signed with Colorado University at Boulder and plans to keep breaking records in their NCAA Division 1 program.
