Templeton High’s Savannah Camacho’s big day highlighted what was an eventful day at the Arcadia Invitational Saturday.
Camacho won the girls 800 meters with a time of 2 minutes, 8.30 seconds, believed to be the fastest time in the nation this season.
She beat second-place finisher Dynasty Gammage of Long Beach Poly by 0.42 seconds.
San Luis Obispo’s Abrianna Torres won the girls long jump despite suffering a hamstring injury midway through the event, forcing her to complete one of six jumps. But one go is all she needed to jump 18 feet, 10 inches.
Never miss a local story.
Torres also won the heptathlon contested Thursday and Friday.
“She put up an amazing performance this weekend,” San Luis Obispo coach David Gomes said. “She just really responded well to the competition and put herself in the great position.”
The Tigers also had Elena Clarke finish fifth in the girls pole vault (11-7).
