    March 30th, 2014, 12:30 pm by ANTONIO MORALES

    This weekend was a big one for track and field athletes in the county. There was the Beach Cities Invitational at Huntington Beach, which featured some of the best boys and girls from across the county.

    Then down in San Diego at the Mt. Carmel Invitational, Bethan Knights made some headlines across the state -- and the nation.

    Simi Valley's Sarah Baxter hasn't been beat in a 3,200-meter race in her high school career. 

    Knights pushed Baxter to the limits on Saturday, and produced a result that's not seen very often.

    September 19th, 2013, 11:51 am by BY JASON EICHELBERGER

    Orange Lutheran athletic director Todd Eklund has announced that Clim Moore has been named boys and girls head track and field coach with the Lancers.
    Moore had spent the last four seasons as head coach of the boys’ track and field team at Huntington Beach High.

    "I can't wait to take advantage of the platform that Orange Lutheran High School provides,” Moore said in a statement. “I was drawn to this place because of the opportunity to coach and mentor young men and women in this type of environment.”
    Moore has also previously served as a sprint coach at JSerra and as relay coach for the USA Track and Field Junior National Team. He is also the founder of the county-based 24Seven Track Club.

    "What impressed me about Coach Moore is not only the experience he has in dealing with top athletes in track and field, but also the intangibles that he brings with him,” Eklund said in a statement. “He has a presence about him that all great leaders have. He is a man of high character and knowledge in both life and coaching, and I am excited to see him teach, mentor and guide our Lancer student-athletes as they pursue Christ-centered excellence in all that they do.”

    Moore replaces former Lancers boys and girls track and field coach J.T. Ayers, who parted ways with the school following the 2013 season. Ayers guided the boys team to its’ first ever CIF-SS track title and was named the Register’s 2013 Boys Track and Field Coach of the Year.
