There were so many out-standing performances at last Friday’s Bruin Invitational Track and Field Meet, picking one to lead with was a difficult task.
Among Columbia High athletes, the most notable belonged to freshman hurdler Chanele Reyes and junior thrower Stanley Hylton.
Reyes broke the 50-second mark in the girls 300-meter hurdles for the first time, finishing in a winning and personal record-setting time of 49.99 seconds. She also won the 100 hurdles with a PR of 17.29.
Hylton shattered his PR in the boys javelin with a monster throw of 168 feet, 7 inches. Runner-up Brandon Montoya of Lyle/Wishram, likewise, set a PR in javelin. His mark was 167-4.
Hylton also prevailed in shot put, finishing with a PR mark of 39-9.5. His day also included a fifth-place finish in discus, in which he posted a season’s-best mark of 110-5.
Bruins senior Chandlor Bucklin and freshman Hannah Polkinghorn improved their 100 times. Bucklin tallied a PR in the boys 100 (third, 11.42) and season’s-bests in the 200 and 400. He placed second in the former and won the latter.
Polkinghorn lowered her PR in the girls 100 to 12.90 seconds. She won the 200, as well.
Joules Hope picked up first-place points for CHS in the girls 1600 as she won in a time of 6:02.
Dorothy Carrillo of CHS finished second in girls shot put with a PR of 28-1.
Stevenson’s Lincoln Krog turned in winning perform-ances in high jump, triple jump, and long jump. On the track, Krog sprinted to second in the 100 in a PR time of 11.36.
CHS boys won two of the three distance races. Ethan Andrews took first in the 1600 with a season’s-best time of 5:04.18. Gerald Hoff was victorious in the 3200; his time of 11:10.75 was his best of 2019.
Columbia’s boys held off Stevenson, 88.5 to 86, to win the team title. The girls team title went to Estacada, Ore., which edged Hockinson, 93 to 89. CHS was a close third at 84.
