Recently, the issue of rape culture has been brought to light, with the beginning of the Audrie Pott trial and the events that occurred in Steubenville.
In Steubenville, Ohio, a 16-year old girl was raped by two high school football players after passing out at a party last summer. By using their cell phones, those who attended the party were able to spread a video of the events which also included crude background commentary.

Before the dual meet against Menlo-Atherton High School got underway, James Schulte, a junior and track athlete at Carlmont, said, “We are definitely going to win. They have strong individuals, but we are a better team.”
Schulte’s prediction was correct. Carlmont did come out on top. In fact, Carlmont beat M-A in every possible category: mens and womens varsity and froshsoph.
Despite suffering some losses in the sprinting relays, the distance runners continued their success streak.
“We did really well in the distance competitions,” said sophomore and varsity long distance runner Mark Vingralek.
