ELK GROVE — Brittany Anselmo had positive thoughts running through her mind that led to a strong finish at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I Track and Field finals at Elk Grove High on Friday.

The Ponderosa High senior took first place in the girls 800 meter run with a time of 2 minutes, 16.36 seconds, which is her PR for the season. Anselmo beat Del Oro’s Maddy Lyons, who finished at 2:16.88.

“The PR for the season feels great,” Anselmo said. “Today I tried to stay out of (inside lanes) and do my best. I like the outside lanes because I’m typically taller than the other girls; I like a lot of room.”

Anselmo admits it was “shocking” to her to finish in first place among the best in D-I.

“I just tried not to fear failing,” Anselmo said.

Oak Ridge long distance runner Rachel Peterson also had a personal record in the 3200 meters finals at 11:03.76, placing fifth.

“I really wasn’t expecting it,” said Peterson, a senior. “I’ve had a few bad races the last couple of weeks. I just wanted to give it my all.”

Peterson started the race running with a pack of runners. Then halfway through the race, the Lady Trojan broke free, and was third behind Davis’ Fiona O’Keefee, who won at 10:39.11, and St. Francis’ Lauren LaRocco, second at 10:44.47. The last two laps had Peterson dropping back to fifth, racing neck-and-neck with Elk Grove’s Isabella Dobson, fourth at 11:02.68.

“I was trying to keep on my pace,” Peterson said. “I felt good the last 1200 (meters). I thought I could give it my all the last few laps, and see what I could do.”

Now the question becomes for Peterson is if she’s going to compete at the section’s Masters, which runs Thursday and Friday also at Elk Grove High. The 3200 is on Friday — the same day as Oak Ridge’s Class of 2014 graduation. Peterson has competed in the 3200 finals at the Masters the last two years.

“I may decide to opt out,” Peterson said. “I haven’t thought about it (since Friday night). I really want to do both things, but graduation only comes once. I want to race again. I just need to weigh my options and see.”

Other Oak Ridge track and field athletes advancing to the section’s Masters meet are Brandon Jetter in the 100 meters, Griffin Prather in the 300 high hurdles, and William Vaughn and Justin Priest in the long jump.

Advancing for the Lady Trojans, Briana Dulgar in the 1600 meters, along with Kathryn Sanders in the 100, Kristina O’Donnell in the 300 high hurdles and Alexa Ray and Angel Pears in the high jump.

For Ponderosa, the 4×400 of Cameron Mosbacher, Austin Beegle, Kevin Ackernecht and Josh Bolier advance. For the Lady Bruins, it’ll be Kenna Davidson in the high jump joining Anselmo.
