CL Boys Track Improve Come in 4th Place at Hawk Relays
Canyon Lake Boys Track Team decided to have a coming out night as several Tracksters decided
to entertain their home crowd with some personal bests.
Branson Belcher had a new CL Record in the Triple Jump as he finished 5th Place with a leap of 40’11. That jump now has him with the second best jump in District 27-3A schools.
Todd Pippin had the previous record in 2011 in Blanco when he soared 38’9.25 feet.
Christian Dittman was in our spotlight last week when he finished third in Wimberley. This week Dittman hit the Moon with a vault of 14’3 a mere 15 inches higher than his previous best of 13’6.
Dittman has already beat his previous best in Canyon Lake when he hit 13’0 last year.
Jordan Anderson also beat his best in the High Jump when he finished first at 6’6. That jump tied Chase Eddington who hit that same height in a 2010 Track Meet in Brady, Texas.
Thomas Gregory also had a personal best of 132’9 throw in the Discus beating his best from last year of 126’11 during the District Meet.
With injuries, sickness, and other sports taking some key athletes out of events this week, Canyon Lake had to switch several students to events that in many cases they have never competed in.
Some highlights of some more talented players on the Junior Varsity and Varsity was fun to watch.
Freshman Gordon McCleary had a personal best in the Discus with a throw of 119’4, which garnered a First Place finish on the JV Team.
Freshman Mike Russell also pulled off an impressive 1600 Run when he sprinted to pass four runners and finish with a Hawk Record of 5:01.48 for all classes. That time was over 17 seconds better than what he ran last week in Wimberley.
The Varsity also lowered their time in the 4×400 Meter Relay by 18 seconds as they decided to bring this event out of the mothballs closet and helped CL score an additional 16 points for the team.
Another Relay was successful when the 4×100 and 4×200 Meter Relays both finished first and helped Canyon Lake accumulate enough points to finish 4th Place with 87 points behind 4A and 5A schools.
Junior Varsity Boys also finished with a very respectable 4th Place finish of 60 points out of 12 teams.
