TURLOCK — The Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV/V Track and Field Divisional Meet at CSU Stanislaus concluded last Thursday with three more individual and one relay team champions — all El Dorado Cougars.

Sierra Valley Conference champion Cambron Lyles was a double winner in hurdles, capturing the 110 distance at 14.47 seconds, and the 300 hurdles at 39.90. Makayla Hoyt also left the meet the high jump champ with a clearance of 5-3.

“All I do is try to stay as calm as I can and listen to my coach (Christine Diehl) and it’s working for me, so far,” Hoyt said.

The El Dorado 4x100m team of Garrett Scalaro, Aaron Line, Nick Bloss and Gabe Ferges blazed to a school record 42.97 to take first place, the second straight week the unit broke the school’s best time.

Not to be outdone, the Lady Cougar foursome of Samantha Engel, Abby Finlayson, Hannah Dixon and Sara Slightam also broke the 4x100m school record running 50.63 for a non-qualifying seventh place finish.

“I figured the boys had a shot at breaking their own school record (43.28) but to break 43 is big time, Cougar head coach Peanut Harms said. “The girl’s race was a pleasant surprise. Both teams really got after it from the gun and competed hard throughout.”

All was not rosy for Cougar boys as a couple of miscues, one in the high jump and one in the pole vault, put their third consecutive divisional title out of reach. El Dorado took second while Union Mine and Golden Sierra tied for 29th.

“I had us in the hunt but Sierra (High) had plans of their own. Bottom line, they executed their plan, we didn’t. Second in the division is still a great accomplishment,” Harms said.

Cougars Samantha Engel and Gabe Ferges both rose to the occasion and finished second in the long jump (16-5) and fifth in the 100m (11.16), respectively.

“Sam jumped out of her mind today (a 12′ personal record) but she works hard everyday and good things come to the dedicated,” Cougar jump coach Steve Scott said.

Cougar discus thrower Trinity Arriola saved the best for last as she had the best throwing series of the season, finishing with a toss of 107-5 and securing the 5th and final qualifying spot. 

Team-wise, El Dorado took ninth and Union Mine was 10th.

The final event of the day was another solid performance by the Cougar men’s 4×4 relay who, paced by a 49.1 anchor leg by Aaron Line, set a three-second seasonal best in grabbing fourth place.

“We’ve had a dream season, and now we just need to finish it off and hopefully that mean’s someone booking a ticket to Clovis for the state championship,” Harms said.

Union Mine’s Charlie swift finished sixth in the discus while distance runner Allison Babbage and pole vaulter Bryce Yaple were both eight place. Golden Sierra’s Ryan Sewell placed sixth in the 1600 and seventh for the 3200.

Engle and Ferges were originally alternates for divisional, but due to a dropouts, were selected and made the most of the opportunity.

The top five placers advanced to the section’s Masters, which start at Elk Grove High on Thursday.
