CHS Track & Field Spring Break Recap

It was a sunny Saturday morning during spring break this past weekend when a small group of CHS track and field athletes participated in the Arnie Robinson Invitational meet at San Diego’s Mesa College.

Women’s Results – CHS had 12 girls compete in various events and finished with four 1st place, five 2nd, and three 3rds.

In the varsity 100 meters, freshman sprinter Alysah Hickey won in 12.78 seconds, and she also took the top spot in the varsity 200m in 27.77.  Freshmen Savanna Schwartz and Avery Dozier placed 7th and 10th respectively in the Frosh/Soph 100m with times of 14.42 and 14.52.

In the 800 meter varsity race, freshman Sydney Zoehrer placed second, breaking her previous record from March, at 2:28.31.  Freshman Gabriella Ryan also ran the 800 placing 11th in 2:42.10.

Junior Jasmine Rippey came in a close 2nd at 5:29.26 in the varsity 1600 meters.

In the frosh/soph 1600 meters, freshman Madden Hundley took first place by almost 4 seconds with a time of 5:37.26.

Running the varsity 3200 meters for her first time, freshman Teresa Perez came in second at 12:06.46.

Ruthie Grant-Williams set two new personal records in the hurdles.  In the 100m hurdles she placed 2nd with a time of 16.37 and in the 300m hurdles, 50.02 got her 3rd place.

The girls also fielded a 4×100 relay team of three freshmen, Dozier, Grant-Williams, Hickey, and junior Rileah Ramirez; they took 3rd place at 53.52.

On the field Dozier won the frosh/soph long jump with a 4.21m leap and senior Roisin Lyons came in 10th in the varsity long jump at 3.88m.  Lyons was our only entry in the triple jump and placed 8th at 8.66m.

Three of our high jumpers, Hickey, Grant-Williams and Ramirez finished in a row at 3rd, 4th, and 5th place with 1.52m, 1.42m and 1.42m respectively.

In the girls pole vault, Junior Kelli Law placed 2nd at 2.74m.

Men’s Results – Seven young men competed for CHS and finished with one 1st place and one 3rd.

Sophomore Jacob Stewart placed third in the varsity 100 meters in 11:96, while freshman Dillon Calhoun won the boys frosh/soph 100 meters in exactly 12 seconds.

The boys pole vault gave the team another three-in-a-row with senior Nathan Thomas 3.35m in 4th place, junior Dakota Summers 3.2m for 5th and junior Alex-John Cheever 3.2m for 6th.

Senior Tallon Hannus reached 5.75m in the boys varsity long jump placing 4th and he came in 5th in the boys triple jump at 11.07m.  Hannus also ran the varsity 100m for 18th place followed by sophomore Lance Lorenz in 19th.

According to Coach George Green there are a large number of freshman making their mark in the San Diego Section.  Freshman girl names to keep an eye out for are Grant-Williams, Hickey, Hundley, Perez and Zoehrer.  Freshman boys to watch are Calhoun and Luke Klingenberg.

On her own up north, junior Renee Phillips traveled to a Stanford Invite to run the 3000 meter, a race which is rarely run in San Diego County (3200m is standard).  Her time of 10:27.95 was excellent but can’t be directly compared to the 3200. Phillips, along with Rippey, continue to be ones to watch.

The next regularly scheduled meet will be held at CHS on Thursday, April 14.
