AC Track Club
The Alameda Contra Costa County Track Club is an elite summer track club whose athletes train to compete in the National Junior Olympics. It is comprised of high school athletes from the entire Bay Area who have had success and want to take their performance to the next level.
California High School has had a close affiliation with the AC Track Club since 1999 when Coach Mark Karbo became one of the assistant coaches of the club. Cal High coach Earl Harris is also an assistant coach with AC and works with their hurdlers.
Athletes who join the AC Track Club not only benefit from the increased level of competition at meets, but also from lengthening their season and training with some of the best high school athletes in the Bay Area.
Athletes compete in two age groups, Intermediate Boys/Girls (15/16 years old) and Young Men/Women (17/18 years old) . The 2002 national championships will be in Omaha, Nebraska.
