Joy Upshaw, Debbie Hoffman celebrate masters at Mt. SAC Relays
W50 sprinters and Bay Area buddies Joy Upshaw and Debbie Hoffman went 1-2 in the Mt. SAC 100 Saturday and put on a show in the postrace interview as well. We learn that Debbie, moving down from her usual 400, last raced at Mt. SAC at a TAC nationals in 1980, when she ran the 100-meter hurdles for Rutgers (competing as Debbie Deutsch). And Joy was Joy, praising Ron Kamaka for accommodating masters events in the elite meet. “We want to get more masters people involved [at Mt. SAC]. I highly recommend everyone come here, and let’s make more of a showing,” Joy said. W70 superstar Kathy Bergen was set to run as well, but arrived late after a schedule mix-up.
