Track: Notre Dame demonstrates how to win a team title

May 25, 2009 | 11:09 am

How do you win a team championship in track and field without winning a single event? Sherman Oaks Notre Dame's boys' team pulled off the feat Saturday in winning the Southern Section Division III championship.

"It is the ultimate team title," Coach Joe McNab said.

It was Notre Dame's sixth team title in the last eight years under McNab, who's one of the best track coaches in the state, while also serving as defensive coordinator for the football team.

Notre Dame scored points in the discus, shotput, hurdles, both relays, 400, high jump, triple jump and pole vault, among others. This is a program that has won titles in the past behind such standouts as Justin Fargas and Rodney Glass, state 100-meter champions.

But McNab admits this season's title was special.

"This was the most rewarding," he said.
