History was made at the State Championships as GCC track star Grace
Graham-Zamudio won three titles at the state track & field
championships at San Mateo College. Grace won the 10,000 meters Friday
and came back Saturday to win the 1500 and 5000 meters in events run
less than two hours apart. The three state titles is an unprecedented
feat for GCC track, surpassing the two state titles that Joe Staub won
in the shot put and the discus at the 1980 state meet.
