Grizzly girls 1st; boys 2nd

GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra’s final Sierra Delta League track and field meet on Wednesday was won by the Lady Grizzlies’ squad, while the Grizzly boy’s earned a second place tie with San Juan.The team varsity boys’ title will be decided at the Sierra Delta League Championships this Wednesday.

Golden Sierra captured 18 first-place finishes out of 26 events. Despite the 1-2-3-4 sweep in the 1,600 meter, a 1-3-4 finish in the 800 meter, and a 1-4-5 in the 3,200 meter, it was not enough to offset in the varsity boys’ high jump and pole vault.

Hunter Hughes set the pace in the metric mile with teammates Ryan Sewell, David Blanton and Ryan Little. Although positions shifted, the quartet finished Hughes (5:04), Sewell (5:05), Blanton (5:09) and Little (5:14).

In the 2-lap affair, Deo Avalos ran a personal best of 2:15.2 en route to the win with Little and Blanton grabbing third (2:17) and fourth (2:20).

The Grizzlies’ control of the distances was capped with Hughes doubling back to claim the 3,200m win in 11:05. Blanton was a workhorse placing fourth (11:35) in his third distance race of the day, and rounding out the scoring was Allan Nicholson finishing fifth (12:00).

Senior Zander Mishler was a triple winner with victories in the long jump (17-10), triple jump (38-01) and pole vault (9-00).

In the varsity girls’ action, junior Becca Brown seized victories in both short sprints claiming an easy three-tenth win over Bradshaw Christian’s Ramia Griffin (13.43 to 13.70) in the 100m and returning later to best Griffin (28.34 to 29.37) in the 200m.

Giana Poseley sailed to easy victories in the 100m (17.65) and 300m (54.59) hurdlers. She also won the triple jump with a leap of 31-06.

Other winners of the day included Julia Patterson, ,(111-08); Maylene Coetzee, high jump, 4-09; Alexis Babbes, pole vault, 8-00; and Gaby Martinez, 3,200m, 14:00.
