About the Team

Menlo School’s track & field program has had memorable moments and a strong list of outstanding individuals in its history. Herbert Fleishhacker ’25 was the first athlete in San Mateo County history to capture a title at the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) meet when he won the shot put (12 pound and 16 pound) in 1925. More recently, Libby Jenke ’05 won the state title in the 800-meter race in 2005. In 2012, the boys’ and girls’ teams each won the West Bay Athletic League crown for the first time. The girls have won five titles in the last six seasons, including a current three-year run 2015-2017.
