Adam Maciel considers every ball hit in the gap a footrace.

And with his combination of instinct, quickness and speed, the Pacifica High center fielder doesn’t lose many races in the outfield.

“He’s able to run down so many balls,” coach Ray Urias said. “When the ball’s in the air, we’ll say ‘Oh, you’re out.’ ”

To his left or right, charging in or backtracking, Maciel has been making it look easy for four years.
