The “Eric Hulst 3200 Meter Run” is in memory of one of Laguna Beach High School greats, the late Eric Hulst. Eric Ran a 9:00.4 as a HS freshman. As a junior in HS, Hulst won one of the best high school races of all time as he edged Ralph Serna in the California state 2 mile finals. Hulst ran 8:44 to Ralph’s 8:45. As a senior in HS, Eric went on to win the World Junior Cross Country Championships, leading the American team to victory. Eric Hulst died of a brain tumor. A great loss of one of the most tremendous high school runners in US history.
