Track & Field Keep Improving in Dripping Springs
Canyon Lake went to Dripping Springs this past Saturday and once again showed promise as this group of athletes raised the bar with their competition.
Last week, the Hawks were matched with Dripping Springs, Hays, and San Marcos schools.
This week the field was larger and when that happens it becomes harder to get in position for scoring points.
What Coaches are looking for when in these situations is how well is that athlete doing in topping their personal bests and that was a win for the Hawks.
High Point for CL’s Girls Varsity was Bailey Drum for the second week in a row with 18.5 points while Emma Gray also reached double digits with 11 points.
Madison Blackburn and Adia Garcia both had 4 points for the Girls Junior Varsity team.
Canyon Lake’s Varsity Boys had Brandon Courtney high point with 18 points while Heath McDonough was second with 15 tallies.
The Hawk Junior Varsity Boys were the flag bearers on this day as this group of athletes finished 2nd place with 104 points.
With that point total, the Hawks, had 3 students with double digit scoring.
Kenneth Jowers and Chance Martelli continue to impress in this young season as each scored 10 points.
Caimen McDonough was weighed down with the most medals as this young man scored in multiple events.
Take a look at this impressive day: Points: 42 points 1st Place 110 meter hurdles 18.74 10pts 1st Place 300 meter hurdles 45.12 10 1st Place triple jump 39-11.25 10 2nd Place high jump 5-07 8 2nd Place 4x400 meter relay 3:45.21 4
A meet like this reminded The ReSporter of those days when Jordan Anderson, for some meets, would score 50 points which is the most an athlete can accumulate.
Those 42 points put in another perspective had McDonough coming in 3rd place when placed with the following teams that competed Saturday.
