Track, Field Nails Down Twin Wins

Riverbank News - - SPORTS -

Bruin track and field per­form­ers com­peted against Modesto Chris­tian and Moun­tain House this past week and won both meets.

“The kids per­formed well, and we saw a lot of per­sonal records set,” said head coach Monte Wood. “Sa­van­nah Ma­cias re­mains un­de­feated in the 100 and 200 in league.

She didn’t break any records this time but she is con­sis­tently run­ning faster in the 100. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see this week if the warmer weather will pro­duce some faster times in the sprints.”

Damian Lopez re­mains un­de­feated in dis­tance races in league for the Bru­ins. He won the 1600 and the 800 against the Cru­saders and Mus­tangs.

Marissa Castel­lanos and Ce­cilia Leon went 1-2 in the dis­cus and Brid­gete Allen won the pole vault again.

Theo Luu and Zac Richi­son had good weeks as well.

“One thing that re­ally stuck out in this week’s per­for­mances were kids who were will­ing to do events that they hadn’t par­tic­i­pated in be­fore,” noted Wood. “An­drea Ruiz high jumped for the first time and cleared 4’6” to win the high jump. She also won the triple jump with a jump of 29’7”. Is­abel Ca­po­rale and Brid­gete Allen did a great job run­ning the hur­dles for first time and picked up valu­able points for us.”

The coach said that River­bank has been miss­ing hur­dlers all year long, and both Ca­po­rale and Allen stepped up and per­formed very well.

“I am very proud of them for that,” he said.

This week the Bru­ins go on the road for the first and only time in league, as they travel to Ripon on Wed­nes­day, April 25.

Fri­day night they will host the Ron He­bert Thrower’s Chal­lenge and the Ger­man Fer­nan­dez Dis­tance Car­ni­val. Thrower’s chal­lenge be­gins at 3 p.m. and the dis­tance car­ni­val be­gins at 7 p.m.
