The Trojans won three out of four team divisions on March 25 at the Castro Valley Invitational, claiming the top spots in girls varsity, girls frosh soph and boys frosh soph divisions. The boys varsity team placed sixth.
On the varsity girls team, Isabella Bzowski, Allanah Lee, Aleya Dolorfino, and Ashley Michalowski won the 4 x 100 meter hurdles relay, and Emily Davidson won the 1,600 meters. Allanah Lee placed second in the triple jump. Raegan Bennitt and Vivian Wu tied for third place for the high jump.
“I felt that I did really well and it was nice being able to run with all my teammates, but there is always more we can improve on, so the next couple of weeks we will be working hard until championships,” said senior Emily Davidson. “It’s really fun to see how far I’ve come since freshmen year, and not a lot of the seniors have stuck around for all four years so… it’s nice that we all have that bond from doing track all four years.”
A varsity boys highlight was a second place finish in the distance medley relay (with legs of 1,200, 400, 800 and 1,600 meters). Christopher Lau took third in the pole vault, clearing 10 feet, 6 inches.
Both the boys and girls frosh soph teams stole the show.
For the boys, David Elliott tied for first in pole vaulting. Enrico Giovannoni got first place and Albert Tran placed second in the discus. The boys won the distance medley relay. Shayan Alvarez won the 300 meter hurdles.
For the girls, Olivia Gilman Chun placed first in the long jump. Nyah Paulding won the 100 meters.
The Trojans dominated the high jump, Kaycee Odior in first, Anna Luce in second, and Janori Lambert in third. They won first in the sprint medley relay and the 4×800 meter relay, and took both first and second in the distance medley relay and the 4×400 meter relay.
Hopefully the boys and girls dominate in all of the events in the next track and field event!
