Dunne Paces Field at CIF-SS Masters Meet

San Clemente senior runner Connor Dunne appears to be peaking at the right time. Dunne, a Colorado commit, backed up a strong showing in the 800-meter run at the CIF-SS Finals with a first-place finish in the event at the CIF-SS Masters Meet on May 27. The win punched Dunne’s ticket to the CIF State Track and Field Championships in Clovis on June 3.

Dunne won the 800-meters at the Masters Meet by posting a time of 1:50.41. His time was a full second faster than the next closest competitor.

Dunne heads to the state championship meet with the fastest 800-meter time in California, according to head coach Dan Johnson.
