TURLOCK — First day finals action from the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV/V Track and Field Divisionals Meet at CSU Stanislaus Tuesday saw three El Dorado County athletes place — one in first — in addition to several winning preliminary performances on the track.

Union Mine pole vaulter Leah Bertucelli cleared 10-6, six inches higher than the next vault, and over a foot more than the automatic qualifying height. She, teammate Sarah Vasquez and El Dorado’s Trinity Arriola all qualified for next week’s Masters Meet.

The top five finishers for each field event and/or those that meet or surpass at large standards advanced. On the track, automatic berths went to all first place heat finishers and the four next best times. At large marks also applied.

Vasquez’ discus toss of 123-02 placed the D’back second while Arriola threw a personal best 107-06 for the fifth spot. Union Mine’s Lindsey Williams was sixth (98-8) and is on an alternate list.

In preliminary action, Cougar hurdler Cambron Lyles took first for both the 110 and 330 hurdles, posting times of 14.67 and 39.58, respectively.

El Dorado’s 4×100 relay team of Gabe Ferges, Nick Bloss, Aaron Line and Garrett Scalero, fresh off a school record at last week’s Sierra Valley Conference championships, came close again with a 43.38. Its 4×400 team also placed first with a time of 3:28.02.

The Lady Cougars’ 4×100 and 4×400 relay squads were sixth and fifth, respectively, while Golden Sierra’s girl’s team also made the cut based on time.

In the boy’s 800, Boone Bates (7th) and Jay Revolinsky (8th) both reach the finals

Several personal bests to note were El Dorado triple jumper Gabe Hurwitt who leapt 42-1 for eighth place while Cougar freshman vaulter Samantha Engle cleared 8-9 to place seventh.

Hurwitt and Cougar Britton Stark just missed qualifying in the 110 hurdles. Stark was 9th and Hurwitt, 10th. Other near misses were Scalero (200, 9th); Grizzly Becca Brown (200, 9th) and El Dorado’s Arianna Pizzuti (200, 10th); Engel (PV, 7th); D’back Williams (D, 6th); Union mine’s Charlie Swift (SP, 7th) and Cougar Daniel Rivera (SP, 10th).
