Incline comes out finishing top among small schools
The highlanders took the young team to the Reed Rotary Invite on Friday. On the girls front Sophomore Giangreco finished 21 out 79 in the 100m at a season best time of 13.88. Limited time on a track without water and snow has not slowed down the MVP of last years Highlander Track team.
Freshwoman Jada Moore ran the 200m for her third time and placed 42nd out of 81 total athletes for a top small school time of 30.08 a personal record again! She came out later to finish the day in the 300m hurdles finishing first in her heat and placing 19th out of 53 and first among small 2A/ 1A schools in a time of 53.89 her first time in the event.
The young men Highlanders started with Christopher Vaughn throwing a personal best in discus of 77’05” at 14th out of 40. On the opposite side of the field Brad Rye took to the runway in Polevault clearing 7’06” in his second attempt at the height finishing 11th out of 38. Dylan Cleary finished his heat 1st in prelims and 4th overall moving him to tomorrows Saturday final in the 200m at 24.43 seconds.
Vaughn will compete in shot on Saturday as Rye competes in the long jump and 4x 400 and Cleary will have the 200 finals, 4×400 and open 400m.
Overall this is a young an improved team from last year at the same time under similar winter conditions. Exciting things are happening and records may continue to fall.
DJ Littleton competed for the varsity boys along with Emma Perrel for the girls in the triple jump. DJ tied his PR at 37’03” and will look to improve with more time on runways away from the indoor training at Incline high.
Highlanders will continue on Saturday at Reed before they travel to California and the Thunder Invitational.
