Track team advances 7 to CIF finals

Kyle Brown was the top seed in both the long jump and triple jump going into the CIF D-II prelims held at Mt. Carmel last Saturday so it was no surprise that he advanced to the CIF finals as the top D-II seed this weekend, again at Mt. Carmel. His jumps of 22 feet 7 inches (long jump) and 45 feet 3 inches (triple jump) rank him among the top contenders to qualify for the state meet May 30th in Norwalk. He also advanced in the 100 meter dash, lowering his own school record by .09 seconds in the process, with a time of 11.06 seconds. In the girls' 1600 meter run Sallie Privett and Annie Lovering both advanced by placing 3rd and 4th respectively. The rapidly improving Lovering cracked 5:20 for the first time with a time of 5:19.78. Privett also placed 2nd in the 3200 meter run and may attempt to run both the 1600 and 3200 at the finals. Ben Enowitz placed 2nd in the boys 3200 meter run, having scratched the 1600 to concentrate on the longer event at the finals. Hopefully the weather will be cooler than the 90 degree heat the distance runners faced at the prelims. Danielle Gillberg advanced in the 100 high hurdles while dropping her personal best to 16.80 seconds but Maddie Danielson had a rough trip in the 300 lows. She clipped a hurdle early in her race, which threw her timing off. Her time of 50.79, while good for a freshman, was two seconds off her best and not quite fast enough to advance. Both of our pole vaulters made it through with Briana Giorgione clearing 8 feet 3 inches in the girls' vault and Will Bartsch clearing 11 feet 10 inches in the boys' vault. In the boys 800 David Grimes PR'd with a time of 2:01.78, which puts him in the first alternate position. Neisha Scales ran 13.20 in the 100 but in this fast crowd it wasn't enough to get through.
