I’m very pleased with our meet yesterday (Wednesday). The kids ran some fast times for so early in the season. All of the relays were either below or very close to a provisional time for state.

As the season progresses several of the relays have the capabilities to meet an automatic mark. I was very pleased with my freshmen. Andrew Cardiff placed second (using misses to determine place, which the results don’t show) in his first high school meet. That is pretty fabulous! Donnie Simms looks to be one to watch. He ran in the 4 X 100 relay and did very well. We expect great things from him in the coming year and beyond.

Garrett Pfaff and T.J. Cobanovich also did really well in their events.

My boy returners also did well. Justin Sturgill, Andrew Davis, Zack Tempert, Enzo Marino, Zach Moyd, AJ Herrera, Cayden Robles, Kael Juelfs, and Kyle Julle all did well placing high in their events. Andrew Rucker earned our first placement in the pole vault. He has been traveling to Bullhead City twice a week to work with a coach. It’s exciting to see how he is progressing.

On the girls side, Alexis and Alize Hecker did very well. They both placed high in their events and have made a place for themselves in the various relays they are on.

Bryce Shuffler and Megan Araujo did well in the hurdles. Maritza Saucedo and Jaimie Valenzuela have done well and gotten faster in their events.

My girl returners continue to make me proud. Darleen Bland, Sienna Cobanovich, Sadie Serrano, Hailey Puaa, Meah Wilson, Alondra Correa, Lilly Rapp, Sadie Snay, and Sarah Harvancik did well in their events. Darleen in part of the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relay and could possibly make it to state in the 400m. Sienna Cobanovich did a great job in high jump coming close to last season’s best jump with a 4’8” jump yesterday.
