PREP SPORTS: Rosemead Hurdler Vien Misses State Championships by One Place

  • By Chuck Lyons

  Tammy Vien, a senior hurdler from Rosemead High School, ran her best time of 14.35 seconds in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Southern Section Masters Meet at Cerritos College on May 27, 2016. She missed qualifying for  state championships as she finished seventh place and top six places qualify.

  Interesting note is how strong the CIF Southern Section is for competition, as

 

  if Vien was in any other of the nine CIF sections in California, she would have qualified. So, Vien is the 12th fastest 100 meters girls hurdler, of any size school in the state, and she didn't make the final 27 qualifying spaces for the state prelims on June 3, in Central California, because each CIF section gets a number of places for the state championships, regardless of times ran by the athletes.

  Vien, the only local boy or girls track and field athlete to qualify for the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet, still finished her career with Rosemead High School records in the 100 and 300 hurdles, was Athlete of the Meet at the Mission Valley League Championships recently winning both hurdles races and running away from the competition to help both of Rosemead's relays teams win, won the CIF Southern Section Division 3 100 meters hurdles and finished third in the 300 meters hurdles, She also won the State Indoor Championships hurdles in Central California earlier this year. Vien was coached by Rosemead High School Track and Field Head Coach Fidel Dominguez.

  Among the colleges/universities recruiting the Rosemead senior are Azusa Pacific, Cal State Fullerton, and Cal State San Marcos.
