SAN JOSE -- On her way to San Jose City College on Friday for the Central Coast Section track and field championships, Piedmont Hills freshman Reonna Collier was determined to put herself in the right frame of mind.
So she listened to inspirational music.
Collier then went out and did what nobody else had done.
On a day that included double victories by some of the section's most accomplished athletes, Collier won three individual events -- the 100 and 300 hurdles and the 100 -- and ran a leg on Piedmont Hills' winning 4x400-meter relay team.
She is the first freshman to win four events at the CCS championships.
"Going to Piedmont was the best thing that I ever did," said Collier, a transfer from Vanden High-Fairfield. "Having all these wonderful girls that are state leaders and state winners, it's just a positive influence on me that I love to be around."
In all, five girls won multiple individual events at a meet that returned to SJCC for the first time since 2006.
One athlete who did not win multiple events, Gunn's Sarah Robinson, helped her school edge Los Gatos 73-70 for the team title. Robinson won the 3,200, took second in the 1,600 and placed fifth in the 800.
After nearly running down San Lorenzo Valley's Anna Maxwell in the 1,600, Robinson said she was thinking about dropping the 800.
Her fifth-place finish in that event was worth four points, the difference in the team competition.
Collier ran a wind-aided 11.79 seconds in the 100 and won the 100 hurdles in 14.00 and 300 hurdles in 42.12.
Before the 300 hurdles, Collier jumped from the block before the gun went off and was given a warning. She went on to run the fastest time in the CCS this season.
"It was very nerve-racking, not knowing if I was going to get disqualified for something that I love to do," she said.
Menlo's Maddy Price repeated as 200 and 400 champion, and Wilcox's Marisa Kwiatkowski did the same in the long jump and triple jump.
Price became the second CCS athlete to win the 200-400 double in consecutive years at the section meet, Kwiatkowski the fourth to win the triple jump-long jump double back-to-back.
"I am definitely pleased to be back-to-back CCS champ," said Price, who won the 400 in 54.67 and 200 in 24.33. "Definitely one of my goals. A little bit disappointed that I didn't get the record in the 400. But I think I am going to come back at state next week and run even faster."
Valley Christian sophomore Elena Bruckner took first in the discus (129 feet, 1 inch) and shot put (43-1), and San Lorenzo Valley's Maxwell won the 800 (2 minutes, 9.35 seconds) and 1,600 (4:43.82), earning the distinction as the most decorated distance runner in the section's history with 13 CCS titles in track and cross country.
"It's been a crazy four years," Maxwell said.
Los Gatos' Greta Wagner successfully defended her title in the pole vault (12-8) and helped Los Gatos set a school-record in winning the 4x100 relay (47.28).
