Campolindo’s John Torchio, O’Dowd’s Tierra Robinson-Jones top Bay Area prep athletes

One piled up big football numbers and played three sports.

The other stuck to one sport and meticulously lowered her times on the track to make Northern California history.

While Campolindo-Moraga’s John Torchio and Bishop O’Dowd-Oakland’s Tierra Robinson-Jones had little in common in their sports, they share this: The seniors are The Chronicle’s 2017-18 Metro Athletes of the Year.

Torchio capped off a marvelous prep career by reaching the North Coast Section finals in football, basketball and baseball, leading the football squad to its fourth title in a row.
