Girls Rewrite Record Board; Buckley, Moore Set Career Bests at West Coast
The varsity girls' 400 relay squad moved a few more hundredths up the school record list with their 2nd sub-50 second performance of the season, setting the tone for the Cougars in their 1st appearance at the West Coast Relays in Clovis.
Hosted in Veteran's Memorial Stadium on the Buchanan High School Campus, the big stage inspired big-time improvements from nearly every Campolindo competitor.
Paloma Hancock (20) climbed into the all-time top-10 with a 5:09.33 clocking in the invitational section of the 1600m. Emma Smith (20) also shined in the 1600m, crushing her previous best by nearly 15 seconds, finishing 4th in the open section in 5:31.53.
The boys' 4-lap event featured a negative-split 4:22.92 effort from Edward Buckley (19), a sub-4:30 finish for Cayden Hein (20), and season-best marks from Dylan Cronin (20), Pablo Nguyen (20), Cameron Iniguez-Reyes (19) and Sam Morasch (20).
Smith, Hein and Cronin all doubled back to PR in the 3200m while Mia Travis (20) took advantage of fresh legs and a competitive field to lower her 8-lap best to 12:04.99.
In the field, Lucas Moore (19) launched the discus over 140 feet for the 1st time, and Terryal Bell (21) leaped to an 11-inch improvement in the long jump.
The hurdle competition included a career day for Natalie Arnswald (19). The senior veteran improved in both the 100 and 300 hurdles. Her 300 hurdle mark of 50.11 is an improvement by over a second.
Also taking time off her previous hurdle best, freshman star Sara Tabibian (22) raced away from the open section competition to break the tape in 46.63, the 5th fastest time ever run by a Campolindo athlete in the event.
Tabibian followed up her hurdle breakthrough with a solid leg on the 1600 relay. The relay, comprised of Emily Hatch (22), Tabibian, Kyrstin Wilson (22) and Maddy Doane (19), rocketed to a surprising 4:04.62 clocking in the open heat. The time held up as the 4th-fastest of the meet and stands as the 5th-best mark in school history.
While these performances in themselves constitute one of the best combined team showings in program history, the day's exclamation point was predictably provided by Doane in the 200m.
After earning 100m runner-up honors in a school-record 12.12, Doane pulled away from the other top sprinters in the state to set a new school record in the 200m. Her 24.74 is currently the #2 time in the North Coast Section and the #6 time in California.
