Destiny Look, who is going into her sophomore year at Mid-Pacific and is competing at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon as part of the Spartan Track Club Hawaii, finished in fourth place in the Girls 15-16 heptathlon on Tuesday.

And then, on Wednesday, Look finished eighth in the preliminaries and qualified for Sunday’s eight-person finals in the 400-meter hurdles.

Also on Wednesday, Rahieum Lee, who will be a Moanalua junior, took seventh in the prelims in the Boys 15-16 800-meter run and will compete in Saturday’s eight-person finals. Lee is entered as part of the Runnin’ Renegades.


Athletes who finish in the top eight in in the finals of an event earn coveted All-American status, so when (technically) the finals happen, Lee will lock it down and Look will have achieved it a second time.

Bedrock Sports will keep you posted on how they do in the finals.
