ELK GROVE — Elcipsing his preliminary time by nearly a second at Friday’s CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Track and Field Championships at Elk Grove High, Oak Ridge’s Jacop Sipes took third in the boys 300 hurdles and qualified for a spot at the state meet.

The  junior was clocked at 38.79, his second best this season.

Sipes lost a small step near the curb of the track on the first turn but was determined to make the final three with Stagg of Stockton’s Andre Lindsey and Atwater’s Dallas Hoffard, who won the race at 38.26.

“But I finished strong,” Sipes said. “I can’t be disappointed with that.”

In Thursday’s trials, Sipes wanted to start the race fast and be aggressive.

“You can’t be tentative,” said Sipes after Thursday’s race. “You just to got to go for it.”

Sipes’ best time was at the Division I meet almost two weeks ago with a time of 37.77.

In addition to the 300 hurdles, Sipes was part of the 4×100 relay team with Dominick Worsham, Bryce Williams and Zach Youngberg that took sixth place (42.65).

El Dorado’s Matt Johnson was also in Friday’s finals, finishing eighth with a time of 40.08.

Oak Ridge’s Lauren Peterson competed in the girls 3,200 meter race, placing eighth at 11:08.16. The junior felt her performance would’ve been better had she started in the first pack of runners instead of the second where she was placed.

“You don’t want to fall too far back,” Peterson said. “I was trying to hold my pace the whole time but I fell off a little bit.”

Cougar Sean Gregg was ninth in the boys 1,600 meter race at 4:24.25, a new PR.

“I was just trying to run as fast as I could,” Gregg said. “I was just running for time. I’m happy with my time.”

Gregg will attend Sacramento State on a scholarship to compete on the Hornet men’s track squad next spring.

Also competing in the boys 1,600 meter finals were Oak Ridge’s Jake Zeltner, who was 13th at 4:26.83. On the girls side, Troy’s Ellie Velez placed 22nd.
