The Sun Was Shining for the Hawks to Start Track Season

Canyon Lake started track season at the Hawk Relays in beautiful weather last Saturday and that same forecast looks to be in store for this season as many Hawk athletes were in heated action.

Triple Jumper Bailey Drum started her first Meet with a win

You would not see many Hawks on the podium since this meet was occupied by larger schools that can throw more students into events limiting the end result.

However, there was enough to see that this could be a good season and there were some that started where they left off at the Region Meet last season.

Brandon Courtney had two good hurdle races and scored in both events. On Courtney’s 110 Hurdle run he broke his previous best by 0.03 seconds.

Heath McDonough cleared 6’2 for his High Jump event that beat his previous best last year at 6 feet even.

Bailey Drum had a Triple Jump of 34-3.75 and a first place finish. Drum will challenge Marisa Ellis who topped 37-04.5 back in 2012 season. Drum’s best last season was over 36 feet.

Lester Boehme won his 400 Meter Run on the JV squad with the 5th best time for the Hawks and Alysha Perez also won her JV 100 Meter Dash breaking the tape with a 12.75 time.

Perez’s time was a Hawk record as she surpassed Trena Lorett who ran the 100 Meter Dash at 13.23 back in 2013.

Great start to her career as Perez topped that by almost a half second.

Mariah Ellis was busy with many events but in the Long Jump she beat her best last year by over a foot and that was a good sign.

Joseph Ruiz turned in the 5th best 100 Meter Run with his 11.58 showing.

Evan Schuller has a chance to jump into the Hawk record book as he moved up to 5th in the Long Jump and 4th in the Triple Jump in the Hawk totem pole of hierarchy.

Canyon Lake will spring into action again this coming Saturday as they travel to Navarro for the Panther Relays.

Go Hawks!!
