ELK GROVE — Oak Ridge hurdler Jacob Sipes and Ponderosa pole vaulter Kylee Trageser won their respective events at last week’s Division I Track and Field Championships at Elk Grove High.

The two titles represent 24 Trojans and Bruins who advance to the Masters Meet Thursday and Friday. The top eight finalists plus the next four consolation winners return to Elk Grove, site of the Masters.

Sipes has been unbeatable since taking up the 300 meter hurdles earlier this season. Thursday’s winner came down to Sipes and Atwater’s Dallas Hoofard. Head-to-head in the event’s second heat, Sipes broke the line at 37.77 seconds, just .12 of a second in front of Hoofard for a new school record, third fastest in the state and 15th fastest in the nation.

Sipes is a dual qualifier, also making Masters as part of the Oak Ridge 4×100 relay team with Dominick Worsham, Zach Youngberg and Bryce Williams. The 4×400 Trojan girls team of Sabrina Andrus, Caitlin Jolette, Jasmine Spears and Kristina O’Donnell clocked in at 4:04.14, good enough for 9th, and punched their ticket to the Masters.

Other than Sipes, Ponderosa hurdler Jacob Legge, Matt Culver (400) and the relay teams, El Dorado County athletes made their mark on the field side of the track and field finals.

Trageser, first at the Delta River League meet, eclipsed the 2012 Divisional meet record by an inch, 12-8 to 12-7, set by former Ponderosa teammate Sydney Blakeley, giving Lady Bruin vaulters back-to-back D-1 titles. Trageser won Thursday’s vault by over a foot.

Ponderosa advanced two other vaulters, Connor Goss and Robert Holloway who were 6-7 in the boys competition. Goss displayed his multi-talents by qualifying in the high jump while Legge moves on in both the 100 and 300 hurdles.

Culver advances in both relays while Alex Roberds, Nicolas Bruks, Ty Scalero and Trevor Hammit go with Culver on one or both Ponderosa boys relay teams.

After Sipes and Trageser’s placings, the next highest was the Trojans’ aforementioned 4×100 relay team, Legge’s fifth-place finish in the 100 hurdles, and Rachel Peterson’s fifth-place in the 3,200.

On jumps, Troy’s Will Vaugh, Justin Priest and Carina Williams advance. In strength, Bruin discus thrower Silvio Reggiardo and shot putter Henry Sharoyan qualified.

Other qualifiers were Ponderosa’s Brittany Anselmo (800), Trojan Ellie Velez (1,600) and pole vaulters Austin Laut (9th, PR) and Kasian Strawick (12th), and distance runner Jake Zeltner (1,600) who came in under the at-large qualifying time.
