Trojans Run Through Rain and Shine
CVHS track and field teams jumped, vaulted, threw, and ran to victory, sweeping all divisions at their annual invitational fundraiser meet where 15 teams from all around the Bay Area competed.
Trojans worked to bring this meet together as well as compete together on March 24, as a majority of the track events during the invitational were relays.
“Distance runners don’t usually get an opportunity to do a relay, so when you get the chance to run with your teammates, it’s really fun,” said Reilly Berberian, senior and team captain.
Berberian participated in the winning relay team in the boys varsity distance medley run with a finishing time of 11 minutes, 29 seconds.
Jared Fleming won the boys discus with a throw of 136 feet, 5 inches. Austin Fields took the win in the boys high jump with a jump of 5 feet and 10 inches and the boys triple jump with a jump of 42 feet and 4 inches.
Nyah Pauling won the girls 100 meters with 13.14 seconds. Allanah Lee won the girls long jump with a jump of 16 feet and 8.25 inches and the girls triple jump with a jump of 41 feet and 4 inches.
The girls varsity teams also came in second and third in their 4×800 relay with 11 minutes and 22 seconds, and 12 minutes and 23 seconds, respectively. The girls varsity sprint medley relay team came in fourth with 4 minutes and 51 seconds.
“I was experimenting with different start paces and realized that I was stronger starting off at a medium, not faster pace as I tried during the relay,” said Kaitlin Manning whose team finished second in the varsity girls distance medley relay.
The Trojans came out victorious continuing their overall successful season for all teams: boys varsity, girls varsity, boys frosh soph, and girls frosh soph placed first among the teams that competed.
