The Paly boys distance team dominated the track on Saturday, nabbing top spots in the invitational mile, 800m and 3000m at the Saint Francis Invitational.

Sophomore Grant Morgenfeld clocked a second-place 4:23.93 in the invitational mile — which featured some of the fastest milers in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League — followed by Mateo Fesslmeier, Eoin O’Connell and John Bard in fourth, fifth and sixth places, respectively.

Earlier in the day, Bard ran a first-place 1:59.60 in the 800m, while Fesslmeier and Gao ran third and fourth place finishes in the 3000m: Fesslmeier at 8:52.12 and Gao at 8:59.50.

Maybe most impressively, the boys fielded two distance medley relay teams that ran second- and third-place finishes (the relay consists of a 1200m, 400m, 800m and 1600m, in that order); most schools struggle to field even one A-team that can finish with a strong time.

In other news, Mountain View boys volleyball kept its win streak alive at 11 with wins over Lynbrook and Los Gatos.
