Track & Field Starts with Good Showing at Hawk Relays
The Hawks Track & Field Teams had impressive starts for this year’s season, as Canyon Lake jumped off into the year with an improving motif takes shape as each passing week will culminate with the District 28-4A Meet in April.
There were 14 schools in attendance for the all-day festivities as each running event had athletes running not knowing if their time would be good enough for placing.
Kenneth Jowers moved up to 3rd place in the Hawk 100 meter event as he started his year with a 11.31 dash.
Chance Martelli shaved a second off his previous 400 meter best while moving up to 5th place on the all-time Hawk list. Matthew Bell moved up on the Mile Run by improving his time by 8 seconds and now resides in 7th place in that category for Canyon Lake.
In those throwing events, Jacob Foster and Bradley Hight both entered the top 10 for Hawk Discus participants, now holding in the 7th and 8th spots respectfully.
Nic Rivera also entered the top 10 category in both of his hurdle runs with his 110 meter hurdle race having him standing in 8th place while breaking the 17 second barrier. This event is one of CL’s stronger events but with Basketball playing this Tuesday, there are 3 hurdle athletes and Brandon Courtney was being held out for precautionary reasons.
This will be a fun event to keep tabs on with so many quality athletes in competition not only at each meet but in their every-day practices.
On the Ladies side, Canyon Lake was not at full strength but there were many good things seen for this year as Skylar Hurst headlined that point by beating her previous best 400 meter run while getting close to breaking that 60 second time and just missing after a 1:00.37 run. Hurst did take over a record that had been held by Caitlyn Collins since her 2010 year for the 200 meter dash.
Hurst scored half of the varsity points as many other mainstays were missing. Sophia Thorpe comes to mind as a great runner from past years that was not in attendance.
Adia Garcia had a good day with her throws as she moved up to 2nd place in the discus for all-time accolades.
The Hawk Junior Varsity was well attended as Madison Churbe helped the team to a 2nd place finish with an individual score of 33 points. Churbe’s 100 meter dash is now in 2nd place, trailing current Junior Hawk Alysha Perez.
There were 7 Hawk Ladies that finished in double digit scoring as can be seen on the list below.
A lot of teams participating on a beautiful February day as it was a long day that needed many volunteers.
Most track meets will have 6-8 teams which will allow the events being able to pair down the best 6-8 students running against each other in that one race. That was not in the cards on this crowded day as many races had athletes competing against a clock as well as their group in that particular event.
There are still a lot of ironing out as this year starts to get long in the tooth for that eventual district meet.
