High-SchoolCalifornia: Atherton Sacred Heart Prep

More Boys State Athletes of the Year

July, 14, 2012
With the overall Cal-Hi Sports Athlete of the Year being a junior, a senior of the year also had to be chosen among this year’s best. We also have five winners for each CIF division plus a freshman and sophomore. A total of 53 more of the state’s top multi-sport and single-sport athletes named on honor roll.

Congratulations to the following boys for being selected as a 2011-12 Cal-Hi Sports State Athlete of the Year:

Darren Fahy (La Costa Canyon, Carlsbad) Cross Country, Track

With a runner who won a CIF Division II state cross country title and then swept both the 1600 and 3200 events at the CIF state track meet, you might be surprised that Fahy’s best running event is none of those. He’s best at the 3,000-meter steeplechase and several weeks ago he won at the USA Junior Championships in 9:06.83. Fahy also has clocked the best 3,000-meter steeplechase time in state history. Already named the San Diego Union-Tribune Male Athlete of the Year and the Gatorade Boys Track State Athlete of the Year, Fahy’s times at the CIF state meet were 4:08.78 in the 1600 and 9:03.29 in the 3200. His best race, however, might have been the 8:54.21 he ran in the 3200 at the Arcadia Invitational. Fahy will attend Georgetown University in the fall.

Note: For additional seniors who have been singled out, look for lists under each CIF division.
