CL’s Lady Hawks Continue to Show Improvement in Track & Field
Canyon Lake’s recent Track Meet in Kerrville Tivy did show more improvement for many Hawk athletes as this meet had some large schools in attendance that many times did not result in points.
Many times in Meets of this kind, an event might have a lower than 6th place finish but it could also produce a personal best for those lower finishes.
This would be the case on this day as the Girls Varsity finished with 70 points while CL’s Junior Varsity would reach 71 points.
One of those surprise results came when Senior Madison Churbe had her best high jump result reaching 5-02 and that jump placed her in first place.
Churbe has been a regular for all 4 years on the varsity and continues to be a top notch athlete in the sprints and high-jump. She was high point garnering 17 points in this competitive Tivy Meet and Churbe scored in 4 different events.
“I was like….Wow!!, I just cleared the bat!!,” Churbe said when recollecting that event. “I just did not want to land on the bar.”
Churbe continued on on her technique, “Many times I will be too forward and hit the bar going up but I hit 5 foot on the first try and by then I was in first place and when I cleared 5 feet 2, I was finished.”
In events like these, an athlete can come to the event at a higher range before starting their competition. The High Jump started at 4 feet 4 inches and Churbe started at this height.
“Jumping more makes me feel more comfortable,” Churbe said calmly. “I do six pre-jumps and I number my steps and sometimes that interferes with other events I am involved in like the long jump. So, I told Coach (Barthels) that if I could clear 5-02 then I wanted to retire in the long jump and focus on the high jump.”
Churbe is now has good company as this is the one and only event that has produced a State Champion when Marisa Ellis cleared 5-06 in Austin.
Top 10 High Jump 1) Marisa Ellis 5-06 2) Madison Churbe 5-02 2) Mariah Ellis 5-02 2) Anna Bettersworth 5-02 5) Skylar Hurst 5-01 6) Emma Gray 5-00 6) Landry Brown 5-00 8) Heather Arcediano 4-10 8) Hayley Melon 4-10 8) Bailey Drim 4-10
For the Junior Varsity, Caitlin Mott had a good day totaling 23 points and finishing 1st in the 200 meter (28.16) and placed in four other events. A second place finish in the long jump was another good showing reaching, 14-08.50.
Shelby Porter had a 2nd place discus throw as another highlight for the Girl’s JV.
Alyssa Strickland had a 2nd place finish in the 100 meter hurdles with a 14.81 time. Strickland finished in double figure scoring 12 points.
A Freshman that has been competing with the Varsity continues a strong showing as Maddie Pipkin finish 6th in that same event as Strickland and had a 5th place finish in the 300 meter hurdle event. This young lady broke the 50 second barrier and should be fun to watch as this season continues.
Canyon Lake has their Spring Break and will hit the cinders on the 19th of March in the Ro-Hawks Relays starting at 9am in Randolph.
Keep it up and Go Hawks!!
