CL Boys Track have more Personal Bests coming from the Texans Relays
Canyon Lake had a hard time getting home on Thursday night as their bus had to take on that furious wind after a 3rd place finish for the Varsity and a 2nd place trophy for the Junior Varsity.
Lester Boehm is now entrenched in 3rd place for CL as he won the 200 meter dash with a time, 22.93 and on a calm night might have had this athlete moving even further up the pack. The good news is having another chance this Thursday in Lockhart.
Joseph Ruiz was another Hawk with a PR (personal best) in the 100 meter dash (11.27) as he too is now 3rd all-time in this race.
Ruiz had some wise comments concerning the strong winds on this day, “You have to run low and you do not want to run like when you put your hand outside the car and have to fight through it.”
The McDonough brothers finished 1 and 2 in point gathering as the wind did have them doing some neat dance moves as they approached the high jump bar.
Heath McDonough had some tough jumps in his high jump event as Heath needed to get his jump on his last try twice for his eventual win.
On if the wind was a problem, Heath McDonough surmised, “Sometimes it is hard to keep your balance and the wind was the reason I missed my turn.”
On one of Heath’s jumps the bar fell while he was in route and he had to abort his attempt quickly.
“I watch video after each jump and that helps me know what I will need to do to correct mistakes,” Heath McDonough continued. “It is kind of sad this is coming to an end, but I still want to make it to Regional and get to 6’4 without any misses.”
If that can be done then Heath would have an excellent chance of reaching State.
On what it is like to compete against his brother (Caimen), “I like the competition and I will help him but he did not help me today.”
That was a case where Caimen was ahead of Heath as the rest of the field in the high jump event started to dwindle.
To be fair, both of these athletes were also competing in the triple jump and so after they finished one event then they were off to the other side of the field for that next competition.
CL was strong in the hurdles and high jump events and Gerrit Wilkins had the 2nd best long jump in Hawk history (20-11) as he trails only Jordan Anderson in this event now.
“I’m just listening to the Coaches advice,” Wilkins said after his best long jump ever. “They are wanting me to stay in the air longer and I just pressed it.”
This is some good lingo coming from a basketball junkie. On if he thinks he can get going in the triple jump, Wilkins said, “My ankles have been bothering me in the triple jump but I hope I can get back into that event.”
When was the last time Canyon Lake had 3 students score points in the 1600 meter run? Until this meet it had never happened.
Jaren Marmolejo finished 2nd while Caden McLaughlin and Jacob Christiansen finished out the trifecta
as CL garnered 16 points in this one event.
When you add the 3200 meter run, you have another 12 points scored as Marmolejo and McLaughlin both finished in the top 6 on this jaunt too.
The Junior Varsity was also strong in the hurdles with Nic Rivera returning with a vengeance in finishing 1st in both the 110 and 300 meter hurdles.
Cody Kline is also showing a lot of promise as he continues to rake in PR’s as the season matures.
Bradley Hight was in familiar territory with another 1st place finish in throwing the discus.
Robert Beam broke the 10 foot mark in the pole vault which has been a barren event since Christian Dittman graduated 3 years ago.
This Junior Varsity group has continued to score points and finishing a stones throw away in each of their meets this season.
An all hands on deck this week will show just how much more these Hawk Tracksters can go as the district meet is right around the corner as April comes calling.
