Mt. Carmel Invite 27 March 2004


With the exception of Jamie Klages who had a soccer commitment, the “A” team was at the Mt. Carmel Invite last Saturday. Jake Ruzevick and Reid McLean had to take SAT’s in the morning so their schedule was a little hectic. Ruzevick had to skip the 1600 but the meet director agreed to put him in the seeded 800 meter heat based on a projected qualifying time. He placed 5th in 1:59.7 putting him among San Diego’s select “sub-2 minute half” group. McLean had to miss his best event, the long jump and all of the lane races were filled up. In the seeded high jump Adam Munns again flirted with 6’ 6”. However his 6-4 jump was enough for 2nd behind Serra’s Desi Burt who also cleared 6-4. The girls x 100 team consisting of Ashley Houston, Megan Mushovic, Nila Herutelou and Beth Wittry were placed in the second of three heats graded by time where they placed 4th in 52.40. Wittry and Herutelou later teamed up with freshman Sara Player and Katherine Wingert in the seeded 4 x 400 for a 5th place finish in 4:13.12, a good early season time. Earlier in the day Wingert placed 7th in the seeded 800 with 2:23.5 and Wittry 2nd in heat 2 of the 400 in 60.37 and 7th in flight 2 of the triple jump with 32 feet 5.5 inches. Heurtelou placed 2nd in heat 2 of the 200 in 26.82 and Player 6th in the seeded high jump with 5 feet.
