CL Hawks JV Win District Meet while CL Varsity finishes 4th Overall
Canyon Lake Boy’s Track Team will have six students taking their craft to the Area Meet on April 23rd at home.
The Boy’s Varsity finished 4th overall as the future will certainly be on the upswing as the Junior Varsity finished on top in this year’s District 26-4A Track Meet.
Brandon Courtney will represent CL in three events as he continues to shine in both hurdle runs while also helping the 4×400 Meter Relay team to a 3rd place finish with a time that has only been topped one time for the Hawks back during the 2012 team.
Henshaw, Camarillo, Hubnik and Covarrubias has the record when they finished with a 3:26.55 that season.
Courtney’s 300 Meter Hurdle run was the first ever to break the 40 second barrier and with a little more adrenaline, this Hawk could have a chance of doing well at Regions.
Austin Camacho won the 800 Meter Run and in so doing broke his previous Hawk record and will now concentrate on breaking that elusive two minute barrier which could also have a high finish in the Area Meet this Saturday.
Freshman and Sophomores make up this year’s Mile Relay squad and breaking the 3:30 mark will hopefully have good results as this relay team hopes to continue their climb to lower time barriers.
Heath McDonough continues to shine in the High Jump and will add the Mile Relay to his resume during this week’s Area Meet.
Lester Boehme will run the 400 Meter Dash and then continue that run again for the Mile Relay team this week.
Senior Tommy Clark qualified in the Pole Vault after watching from the sidelines last year while nursing an injury. Qualifying for the Area Meet was certainly a sweet carrot for this young man as he finishes out an outstanding athletic career for Canyon Lake.
Freshman Will Joyner qualified in the Mile Relay and he will get a taste of being in the Track & Field version of the playoffs and it will go a long way in developing three more years of excellence.
The Hawk Junior Varsity was well represented as Gerrit Wilkins turned in a 30 point Meet and served notice that he will be ready in helping the Varsity for next season.
Hurdles will be a strength for Canyon Lake as Wilkins and Joe Marple both finished 1st and 2nd in the 300 Meter Hurdles and when you add Courtney who is a Sophomore running for the Varsity, then that will add many points in future meets.
Wilkins finished first in the Triple Jump helping him to take the high point man for the Hawks.
Tanner Faris and Chris Cole finished with 25 & 21 points respectfully adding more depth in helping this JV Team to finish a head of Wimberley by 7 points for the team tiltle.
Faris finished 1st in the 200 Meter Dash and Cole won in the Long Jump just ahead of Faris.
Marple (19) and Joseph Ruiz (15) finished out the top five Hawk scorers as Marple continued the family tradition as his older sister (Katie Marple) still has the second best 300 Meter Hurdle for the girls, that she ran in 2011 with a 49.97 run.
The JV Hawks will be poised for next season as another year of working on their events will enhance some exciting times for future events.
Clark is the only Senior to qualify for the next round of events and that will make Track & Field a fun time for Hawk fans to see their sons and daughters shine for this community.
Congratulations and Go Hawks!!
