CL Hawks Boys Track Start Season Out of the Blocks With Good Showing
Boys Track & Field finished their first track meet 2nd on Varsity while the Junior Varsity had a 4th place finish in a very crowded field this past Saturday.
“Last week the Hawk Relays was a huge success and is slowly becoming one of the premier Track Meets in Central Texas,” Head Boys Track & Field Troy Moses said excitedly. “We had 15 teams and over 800+ student athletes competing. I’d like to thank all the volunteers that helped out to make this a Huge event run off as smoothly as it did. Our High School Coaches and our Coaches at Mountain Valley School are some of the best people around, they do a wonderful job.”
Coach Moses talked bout the Meet, “Our team is starting to take shape into the 2020 season. It’s looking like we are going to have a well-balanced team this year. We could score points all over the field, of course, we are going to be strong in the hurdles again with the return of Nic Rivera and Nash Young, and other strong areas well be the Pole Vault, with Will Hillenbrand and Freshman Coby Mickey. It’s going to be a fun season because right now I feel there are several other places we are going to emerge and be really good. We’ll just have to wait to see what those areas are going to be.”
In this Hawk Relay Meet, Colin Baker ended up as the high point Varsity Athlete in the long distance runs. Let The ReSporter repeat that last part….Long Distance.
Baker had Hawk Best in the 1600 meter and 3200 meter runs as he finished top of the heap for both events.
Here is the Top 10 All-Time for The Lake in these two events:
Top 10 for the 1600 Meter Run Top 10 for the 3200 Meter Run 1) Colin Baker 4:51.92 2020 1) Colin Baker 10:37.75 2020 2) Luke Mendez 4:52.39 2019 2) Luke Mendez 10:51.15 2019 3) Mike Russell 4:55.73 2013 3) Chris Neiland 10:51.63 2012 4) Adam Wiewel 4:57.00 2016 4) Peter Schultz 11:00.15 2019 5) Chris Neiland 4:57.01 2013 5) Adam Wiewel 11:00.90 2016 6) Matt Bell 4:59.34 2018 6) John Mauricio 11:04.04 2010 7) Bennie Brownlee 5:01.68 2017 7) Jaren Marmolejo 11:06.78 2017 8) Nolan Davila 5:04.30 2016 8) Nash Operman 11:14.49 2015 9) Isaac Mendez 5:04.76 2013 9) Andrew Liebl 11:33.92 2010 10) Garrett Hawkins 5:04.81 2011 10) Luis Juarez 11:34.01 2016
Being able to get those points will have Coach Moses excited as is mentioned above.
“Colin Baker broke the School record in the 3200 meter in exciting fashion by running two final laps,” Coach Moses parted. “The gun lap was fired one lap too soon and Colin took off to win the race, then crossed the line thinking the race was over and he had won, to only be told you have one more lap to go. Most kids wouldn’t have the strength to keep going but he fought threw and had to come from behind again to win the race.”
That type of win can instill a ton of confidence for a runner in having that type of finish. That win had Baker with a 14 second improvement than Luke Mendez finished with last year when he took the record from Chris Neiland from the 2012 track season.
Patrick Almond started his season well with the 3rd fastest 100 meter dash in Hawk history finishing this event at, 11.02 just a tad faster breaking the 11 second barrier. Lester Boehm (10.95) and Jordan Anderson (10.81) being next on the hit list for this track year.
On the Junior Varsity side, Connor Windham had throws in the Discus that was better than the Varsity as this athlete had a 2nd place finish in the Shot Put for 18 points garnered.
“Connor Windham is really excelling in the throws but that’s not what has impressed me,” Coach Moses recalled. “He asked on Wednesday, if he could run the 400 meter, and if you know me….if someone ask to run the 400 meter you just became my favorite person. So I put him in it and he ran the fastest 400 meter of the season thus far fo the Hawks!!”
Fun happenings and a good day at the Cinders as this edition of the Hawks will be in Navarro this Saturday when they run in the Panther Relays with a 9am start time.
Congrats and Go…Go…Go Hawks!!
