TTHS track team springs into action at Manogue Invitational
At Reed High School in Sparks April 4, the Tahoe-Truckee High School track team finally got a track meet under its belt.
After several meets were cancelled due to weather, the team traveled to Nevada with positive results.
At the Manogue Invitational, junior Corrie Cromm placed third overall in the high jump, with a first-place ranking among the 3A schools in attendance.
In total, 12 regional schools attended the meet.
In the two-mile event, Chris Waller set a personal record with an 11:16 time, earning sixth place overall.
Senior Christina Harvey was fifth overall in the two mile in 12:29, first for all 3A schools.
Harvey is the defending state champion in the event.
In hurdles, Truckee’s Sarah Brown was fifth, with Jill Marchi close behind in sixth.
Two days prior to the Manogue Invitational, members of the team also participated in the Washoe Relays.
In discus, Maya Jones earned a first place with an 83’7″ throw.
Jones was also second in the shot put, with a 29’2″.
The Big Man’s relay team, composed of Seth Scribner, Zach Wilson, Josh Wilson and Josh Anagnos placed second in the shot put and discus events.
“I’m pleased with how hard the team is working and participating,” said head coach Bob Shaffer.
“The kids did well. We found out where we need to push the kids in certain events. We found some of our strengths and weaknesses.”
The next meet is at Reed this weekend. The event will begin at 5 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. on Saturday.
The following meet is April 22, after the Easter break.
