CLOVIS, Fresno County — Down the final stretch at Buchanan High School, Tierra Robinson-Jones could hear the crowd roaring.
Out of the corner of her eye, the Bishop O’Dowd-Oakland senior could see El Toro’s Maliyah Medley gaining.
“I told myself, ‘Just go faster and faster,’” Robinson-Jones said. “‘Hurry up and get to the line. You have 10 meters left.’ … And then I crossed. I saw my time. I was happy.”
