Re(4): Marissa Williams named greatest distance runner in City history. Who's #2? IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on December 1, 2014 at 01:07:48 AM by DUKE
Goldwings, when you say that "Roman Gomez is and will continue to be the greatest City ATHLETE so far", is a checkmate, I'm not so sure. Some of the great ATHLETES in the LAUSD High School Sports Hall of Fame, might take issue with your statement. The following article contains some great City athletes:
Vicky Lagos was speaking about GREAT DISTANCE runners, which also includes cross country. Marissa Williams' CROSS COUNTRY City, State, and National race performances are superior to any LACS distance runner, male or female. Likewise, Roman Gomez's 4 State TRACK titles and state record are superior to any LACS distance runner, male or female. So if Gomez is the greatest state track distance runner and Williams is the greatest cross country runner, what's the deciding factor? Gomez has 6 CITY track championships and Williams has 7 CITY track championships. Gomez is much closer a DRAW than a CHECKMATE.
