The Laney College Lady Eagles Track Club, under the leadership of Coach Curtis Taylor, has raised the bar in bay area track and field. At the same time, let it be known that these Lady Eagles are no fluke. PTVSports’ Lex Gopnik makes the bold statement that Laney College Track & Field have become a legitimate dynasty with this victory and set the stage for years to come.
