North Tahoe track and field: Lakers compete at Glenn Poole Invitational
The Lakers are scheduled to compete in the Big George Invitational at Douglas High School on Saturday.
The North Tahoe track and field team competed most recently in the Glenn Poole Invitational in Roseville this past Saturday.
Although the Lakers were not at full strength, with several of their top athletes absent or unable to compete, the contingent on hand performed well with numerous personal records (PRs).
Senior thrower Jordan Briggs, who earned the Lakers’ only top-10 finishes, built on her consistent season with PRs in both of her events. She muscled the shot put 36 feet, 6.5 inches, and recorded a throw of 112 feet in the discus. Both distances were good enough for second place against stacked fields from California schools.
Another top performer for the Lakers, senior Cam Goldstone, set PRs in two events as well. He finished 11th in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10:07.45 and was 16th in the 1,600, in 4:52.48.
Junior Nathan Lutz placed 13th in the triple jump (33-09) in his first attempt at the event, and was 34th in the 100-meter dash (11.96) and 33rd in the 200 (24.54).
Max Burkhart was 41st in the 200 (25.66), 26th in the 400 (57.07) and 30th in the long jump (11-08), Tobin Johnson was 23rd in the 800 (2:21.99), 38th in the 1,600 (5:30.16) and 34th in the 3,200 (11:29.27), and Ryan Heisinger was 39th in the 1,600 (5:30.43) and 31st in the 3,200 (11:14.61).
In the field, Jacob Buhler posted a 13th-place finish in the discus (101-02) and was 22nd in the shot put (33-10.50), Martin Barrera was 21st in the shot put (34-00) and 25th in the discus (87-02), and Freddy Leon was 28th in the long jump (12-07).
For the North Tahoe girls, senior Allison Wright raced to a 17th-place finish in the 200 (27.83) and was 29th in the 100 (13.79), while Maddie Cleeland was 28th in the 300 hurdles (19.96), Alaina Hill was 28th in the 400 (1:10.52) and 33rd in the 800 (2:50.37), and Kaya Williams was 29th in the 800 (2:47.79), 29th in the 1,600 (6:16.57) and 21st in the 3,200 (13:37.67).
Elan Lindsey also raced three events, placing 39th in the 800 (2:57.36), 32nd in the 1,600 (6:23.38) and 24th in the 3,200 (13:51.79), Ella Carr was 27th in the 1,600 (6:14.53) and 15th in the 3,200 (13:02.49), and Jacs Mellor was 45th in the 1,600 (6:54.10) and 29th in the 3,200 (15:38.44). Bailey Shaw was 36th in the shot put (22-05.50).
Riley Hacker, meanwhile, posted top-10 finishes in the Frosh/Soph 400 (57.23) and 800 (2:15.75).
