ELK GROVE — Cambron Lyles felt improvement was key to his track season and he continued that route in the 110 hurdles finals Friday at the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Masters at Elk Grove High.

The El Dorado runner hurdled to a second place time of 14.54 seconds to earn a spot at the 96th annual CIF State Track and Field Championships Friday and Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Clovis.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Lyles of earning a state berth. “I could run a little bit better. I wasn’t as fast as I wanted to be out of the box. I feel I can do a lot better. I’m still working on that.”

In the preliminaries on Thursday, Lyles, took first place in his heat at 14.67, beating St. Mary’s Deion Lightfoot, who came in at 14.77.

“As I was going over the hurdles, my trail hand kept hitting this guy’s hand,” said Lyles after Thursday’s race.

Lyles also raced in the 300 meter hurdles, but was fifth at 39.59 seconds. The top three in each event advances to the state meet.

In the boy’s 4×100 final, Garrett Scalero, Aaron Line, Nick Bloss and Gabe Ferges took sixth out of a tough field. For the fourth straight week, their time (preliminaries) set a school record they essentially matched Friday.

Ponderosa’s Brittany Anselmo and Josh Boiler, both competing in the 800, also competed but fell short of a state berth.

Anselmo, who recorded a new PR at the Division I meet at Elk Grove the week prior at 2:16.36, took ninth in the finals at 2:23.21. She had a time of 2:21.08 in the preliminaries.

In the finals, Boiler recorded a new PR at 1:56.35, but also for ninth place. In the preliminaries, Boiler broke his PR from earlier this season at 1:57.45; his previous time was 2:04.51.

Oak Ridge’s Briana Dulger competed in the 1600 finals at 5:20.60 for 13th place in just her first year competing in track and field.

“It was a good day,” said Dulgar, a sophomore. “I hope to get better.”

In the girl’s 3200, Trojan senior Rachel Peterson was 14th to end her solid Oak Ridge career.
