Culver City athletes pick up wins at Redondo Invitational


March 14, 2024

Three Culver City High athletes captured events, including sweeping the boys and girls 400-meter run, in the Redondo Nike Track and Field Festival last Friday and Saturday.

It was the 400-meter dash that was one of the top reasons that led the Lady Centaurs to a second- place finish in the CIF-State Championships and the Southern Section Division II title. Senior Morgan Madden, who could be a future Olympic prospect and possibly seen in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics, ran away with the girls' 400 field at 54.52 seconds, defeating Zoe Ray from Calabasas, who finished second clocking 57.05.

In the boys' 400, sophomore Duaine Maygrant was able to nose out runner-up Emanuel Morgan, also a sophomore from Fresno Central, in 48.65. Morgan was timed at 48.82. The other Centaur winner was Kingston Waring in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 38.65.

Maddox also keyed Culver's girls' 4x400-meter relay team to a third-place finish but a heat win clocking 3:57.42. The Centaurs lost to first place Long Beach Poly (3:55.91) and second place Clovis North (3:56.09). The Lady Centaurs also took fifth overall in the 4x100 in 48.52. Culver City's boys' 800-meter sprint medley team finished fourth with a time of 1:37.3.

The Centaurs competed in a tri-meet last Wednesday against El Segundo and Hamilton and will compete in the California Relays at Long Beach Wilson High on Friday and Saturday.
