GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra hosted and competed Wednesday alongside six other schools in a successful afternoon at the second Sierra Delta League track and field meet, Grizzly team took first: the girls edging Highlands 130-126 and the boys topping Vacaville Christian 139-102.

Becca Brown, continuing her senior-year dominance, placed first in the 400 meter (68.86) and added another victory and in the 200 meter (28.10).

The Lady Grizzlies produced 20 points by capturing firsts in the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.
Amanda Troiana led off the 400-meter relay, followed by Katie Robertson and Mia Belloumini. Brown anchored and helped her team to a winning time (54.21).

Brown sealed a solid afternoon of sprinting in anchoring the 4x400m relay, along with Alexis Babbes, Troiana and Maylene Coetzee that combined for the top time (4:56.78).

Babbes closed out the winners by clearing 8 feet in the pole vault.

The varsity boys’ 3200m marked a strong showing with a Ryan Sewell win of 10:51 while teammate David Blanton came in second in 11:18. Sewell clocked 4:56 in the 1600m for the day of double wins and Blanton crossed the line in second (5:05).

Alex Soden stepped on the track for the first time this season dominating the 110m high hurdles in a time of 16.95. He also finished third in the 300m hurdles in 53.3.

Patrick Lewis picked up a first in the pole vault with a height of 9-6 while Brandon Susic secured second place, clearing 9-0.

Hunter Hughes was second in the 400m and 800, clocking 58.40 and 2:17.58. Dominic Chamberlain leaped 17-06 in the long jump for a personal record and good enough for third place.

The Grizzly boys got help in the team scoring with a third in the 400m relay event with Soden, Lewis, Hughes and Chamberlain passing the baton around (48.18).

Carlos Gonzales found his groove in the shot put with a toss of 41-08 for second place. He then unfurled a huge throw of 102-08 for third place to extend his new PR by over 6 feet.
