Saugus sophomore Sabrina Janes ran a personal best in the 800 meters at the CIF state track and field finals at Buchanan High School in Clovis and finished in seventh place.
Her time of 2 minutes, 11.98 seconds was the fastest by a sophomore from the Santa Clarita Valley. That includes Canyon High’s Alysia Montano, a 2012 Olympian, who ran the 800 meters in 2 minutes, 12.30 seconds as a sophomore in 2002.
