Thoms Takes Triple Jump Title; Cougars Advance 6 Athletes to Meet of Champions
Rising to the occasion, Ashley Thoms (18) bounded her way to a title at Saturday's NCS Tri-Valley Area Championships at Dublin High School. As a result of her efforts, Thoms is 1 of only 6 Cougars to earn advancement to the NCS Meet of Champions scheduled for next weekend at Edward Stadium on the UC Berkeley campus.
Thoms' best mark was equal to that of pre-meet favorite Naomi Chin of Dublin, but her 2nd-best of 6 attempts broke the tie and landed the senior veteran the win.
Fellow senior Andrew Kimball (18) continued his impressive run in the discus, again sending the platter over the 140 foot mark. Kimball's best toss of 144-9 was good enough for 2nd place, qualifying him for the section finals and a shot at advancing to the state meet.
Other athletes extending their season another week include Maddy Doane (19), who finished 4th on the 200m, and Jenna Miles, who hung on for 6th in the 3200m.
Alicia Hober (20) and Isabella Chao (18) will also continue on to the Meet of Champions due to fortuitous scratches in the 1600m
Though not advancing, Fiona Quimby (18) closed out her high school track career with valiant efforts in both relays and solid marks in the 100 and 300 hurdles.
Dylan Gunn (21) took advantage of his opportunity to compete in the 3200m, setting a new personal best by over 10 seconds!
