Hawks Sending 15 Athletes to Area Meet Next Week in Track & Field
The CL Hawk Track and Field Teams finished their District Meet bunched in the middle as they hope to break from the pack with several younger athletes that showed off their skills against older students.
In other words, don’t get caught up in this year’s point totals because the future is where this finish line will be.
Several Hawks had breakout seasons and next year will hopefully be able to fly to their finish line.
Case and point, a Freshman Hurdler that took this year by storm, by the name of Brandon Courtney who broke all of the Hawk records in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles.

Makes you wonder what might be in store…of the Hawk Boys and Girls Track Team, there were only 4 Seniors on each team.

It does not take long to call roll when class starts.
In those hurdle marks above you can see how close the younger athletes are to what used to be a good time of 42 seconds, and in the case of Courtney, he just blew those old records out of the water.
Now, you have to be 1.5 seconds faster to challenge for the best Hawk mark.
That is almost true for all the events and with a strong 8th grade coming up, then this Track and Field future looks promising.
Canyon Lake’s following Hawk players will be participating in the Area Meet next Wednesday and Thursday.

Junior Varsity Tracksters also did well last week with a 4th Place finish for the Girls scoring 69 points and a 4th Place finish for the Boys with 88 points scored.
Both of these teams would of scored many more points but many of the Freshman and Sophomores were moved up to Varsity because of injuries and lack of depth.
So these points would of put both teams near the top after looking at those results for Varsity.
