Malibu High School sophomore Caroline Pietryzk was named the Tri-Valley League Most Valuable Player on Thursday, at the TVL Championships at Lake Casitas.
Pietryzk finished second (18:24) to Emma Flemming (18:18) of Oaks Christian in the three-mile race, but earned the MVP award based on points accumulated over the three league contests.
Pietryzk was also named to the First-Team All-Tri-Valley League and was the only individual in the league to qualify for the CIF Championship meet. In order to earn an individual berth at the CIF meet an athlete must finish among the top six in his or her race and not be on one of the three CIF qualifying teams.
Freshman Charlotte Jackson was named the Second-Team All-TVL after finishing 11th in the Varsity Girl’s Race with a personal record time of 20:12. Freshman Caitlin Meyers (20:41) and Sophomore Carmen Flood (22:16) were named to the Honorable Mention All-TVL Team.
Junior Dyer Pettijohn ran a personal best time of 17:47 to finish 25th overall in the boy’s varsity race. Pettijohn received Honorable Mention All-TVL honors along with fellow juniors Aidan Pasccuii (18:51) and Erik Rosenberg (19:31).
