At Valley Center’s Jaguar Invitational, the Islanders won more than their share of medals. Player made a big impression on all 36 schools attending both the morning and afternoon sessions by posting the best times of the day for the 100 dash, the 100 hurdles and the 300 hurdles, not to mention placing third in the high jump. Her 100 hurdle time of 16.10 bettered her own school record.
Privett placed third in the fast heat of the morning session 800 meters with a time of 2:25.35. Davis posted 2:35 for her heat of the 800. Twomey medaled in his flight of the triple jump; Scales medaled in the long jump; and Enowitz ran 4:46 for the 1,600 and then came back in the 3,200 with a time of 10:30.
Brown won his flight of he triple jump, his heat of the 100 and posted the best mark of the day in the long jump by beating section leader El Camino’s Nelson Rosario with a personal-best distance of 22 feet, 10.5 inches. Coronado’s long jump record is the oldest on the books at 23 feet, .75 inches set in 1938 by Ralph Mitchell. Look at your thumb. It’s probably longer than Kyle was short of this historic mark.
