The “Nordhoff Express” — also known as the Nordhoff High School 4-by-800-meter relay team — continues to roll through the best high school relay teams in the nation. Varian Wilson, Elijah Balderas, Landis Meyer and Cameron Kunde turned in another impressive performance last weekend when they competed in the prestigious Arcadia Invitational and brought home a rare gold medal. The Ojai team was pitted against some of the best relay teams in the state of California as well as six power teams from outside the state.
