GARDEN VALLEY — Sierra Delta League’s third, seven-school Center Track and Field meet last week saw the varsity boys fall to San Juan by two points but the varsity girls squad claim its third victory.

Julia Patterson, coming off a strong performance at the Bret Harte Invitational (discus school record, 115-02.5), finished on top with a toss of 100-11. Patterson also grabbed third in the shot put (29-02).

Defending 200-meter champion Becca Brown continued to dominant the sprints in capturing both the 100-meters in 13.4 seconds and 200-meters in 27.8. Double wins also went to senior Gaby Martinez who clocked 6:20 in 1,600 and 14:04 for  the 3,200, and Giana Poseley in the 100m hurdles (18.13) and 300m hurdles (57.0).

The Lady Grizzlies captured the relays titles during the afternoon affair. The 4×100 quartet (Brown, Katie Robertson, Amanda Troiana, Abigail Wever) toted the baton to a winning mark of 54.96 and closed out the day with the 4×400 victory in 4:50.91.

The varsity boys’ distance team grabbed the top three spots in the 1,600 and 3,200 and placed runners in four of the six scoring positions in each race.

Earlier, Hunter Hughes, Ryan Sewell and Ryan Little finished 1-2-3 in the 1,600 completing the 4-lap event in 5:03, 5:05 and 5:06 respectively; while David Blanton squeaked into the sixth spot with a time of 5:12.

Sewell’s surge over the last 200 meters was enough to come away with victory in the boys’ 3200-meters in a time of 11:17.0 with teammates Blanton and Hughes finishing second (11:25) and third (11:45). Rounding out the scoring dominance in the event was freshman Allan Nicholson who nabbed the fifth place in 12:13.

Golden Sierra also did well in the 800m as Little came away with the win in 2:16 and freshman Deo Avalos finished next in 2:18.

The field events crew capturing 10 of the scoring positions was not quite enough for the Grizzlies to win yesterday’s team competition.

Brian Agee pulled in points with a win in the pole vault (10-00). Kyle Hensman, Wyatt Alexander and Casey Blakely threw well enough in the shot put to finished second (37-7), fourth (35-2) and sixth (34-2). Blakely hurled the discus 104-11 for third and Hensman’s best throw of 101-00 placed him fourth.

Zander Mishler continued to find his stride in the long jump. Coming off a season best leap of 18-11.75 at Bret Harte, Mishler’s jump of 18-2 but fell one inch short of winning. The afternoon’s steady wind added a challenge to high jump where Mishler’s 5-4 was the top height of the day.

“The varsity boys worked hard to do their best, but due to injuries and missed events we lost by two points,” Griz coach Mike Brown said. “One good thing is that we are still in first place overall and if they can win next week we should have it wrapped up. If we lose next week it will come down to the league finals between us and San Juan.”

The last Center meet before league finals is next Wednesday at Golden Sierra High School. Competition begins at 3:30.
