Varsity track and field defeats Diamond Ranch
Varsity track and field beat Diamond Ranch 94-38 at its second away league meet Tuesday, Apr. 12.
â€śIt was a hard race. I was just burning because I wasnâ€™t used to the wind up there at Diamond Ranch. I just knew I had to finish and hit my goal of 5:10,â€ť freshman Diego Serrano said.
Boys won against Diamond Ranch with seniors Osamah Hasan in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:02, Dominic Gonzales in the 1600 meter run with a time of 4:40 and Emilio Triguero in the 3200 meter run with a time of 10:30.
â€śEverybody started really fast, and it was very windy. It wasnâ€™t the best race, but I actually was surprised that I beat half of the people who were there,â€ť freshman Daniel Gonzales said. â€śDistance did its job and pulled up.â€ť
Girls defeated Diamond Ranch with junior Alexis Brewery leading in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:21, freshman Emma Arriaga in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:20 and senior Kaitlyn Fujii in the 3200 meter run with a time of 12:29.
â€śSince it wasnâ€™t as competitive as the other races weâ€™ve done before, it was more about placing than getting a good time. Of course I tried to beat second place in the 1600 meter run, but I just got tired, and she was faster,â€ť junior Erika Lopez said.
The next league meet against Los Altos is Thursday, Apr. 14 at home.
