ELK GROVE — Sweep and sweep.

Vacaville hurdlers swept both the girls 100- and 300-meter hurdles at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Track and Field Championships at Community Stadium at Elk Grove High, Friday.

Pattriana Perry, Daria Cook and Jurnee Woodward went 1-2-3 in the girl’s 100 hurdles, earning them spots in next week’s CIF State Championships at Buchanan High in Clovis.

Perry came back to win the 300s, with Cook second and Hannah Davis third.

Any athlete finishing in the top three Friday or meeting the state’s at-large marks makes the show at state.

Perry won the 100 hurdles in 13.76, Cook was second in a season-best 14.02 and Woodward was third in 14.29.

Perry’s time in the 300s was 42.22, Woodward’s 42.79 and Davis’ 42.96.

Also moving on to the state meet is Vanden’s Tyler Koss, who placed third in the boys 400 in a lifetime best of 47.41, beating his previous personal best by .85 seconds.

“I just gave it all I had the last 100,” Koss said. “I was shooting for a high 47. I just tried to stay ahead (of winner Cameron Stone of Sheldon) as long as I could. I kind of died a little, but . . . . I want to run a 47 again next week.”

Vanden’s Malia Bryant was fourth in the girls 400 in 57.52 and will be an alternate for the state championships.

Perry and Cook, both seniors, were happy to get the 1-2-3 sweeps.

“We got it done the right way,” Perry said. “I couldn’t be more excited. This is awesome. This is what we’ve been talking about all season long. This is what we’ve trained for. I’m glad that it all came through. This is Daria and my senior year. We wanted to go out with a bang.”

Added Cook, “It feels good. This season has been tough so far. It’s good to be back. It feels comforting (to have my teammates coming with me). They are my supporters.”

Woodward, just a freshman, has her sights set high as a youngster.

“It feels really good that we’re all moving on together as a team,” Woodward said. “It’s a great blessing. I’m very blessed. I want to place in the state finals. That would be satisfying.”

Vacaville’s Davis was running in fourth until clearing the final hurdle in the 300s and nipped St. Mary’s Schantell Williams at the line.

“It feels so amazing,” Davis said. “I wanted to go to state so bad. I really wanted this.”

Perry was again happy to see her and her teammates grab the top three spots on the podium.

“I wanted Hannah to make it so bad,” Perry said. “I’m so happy she did it. It was crazy because we knew that Schantell was here trying to come and take one of us out. We knew that we had to come together as a team and go 1-2-3.”

Williams was fourth in 43.25 but advances to state after besting the at-large time of 43.54.

Rodriguez’s Megan Dulaney is headed to the state meet after finishing third in the girl’s shot put.

Dulaney wasn’t at her best, but her toss of 42-9 ½ was good enough for third place. Even if she hadn’t placed in the top three, her mark was better than the state at-large qualifying mark of 42-1. She came into the meet with a season mark of 45-10 ½.

Vacaville’s Brandi French won the event with a throw of 43-7 ¼ and Cordova’s Monique Newton was second at 42-9 ¾.

“It wasn’t my best but I hit it and that’s all that matters,” Dulaney said of the state at-large mark. “It’s fun (competing with French). We’ll be competing against each other for the rest of our high school careers. We’re both juniors so we have another year.”

And as for getting better results at the state meet?

“I need to go faster (on her spin) and get my shoulders back,” Dulaney said.

One of the bigger surprises came in the last event of the night, the girl’s 4×400 relay.

Heading into the final leg, Armijo was in fourth but anchor leg Tyra Holt made a pass on the back stretch, lifting the Indians to a third-place finish and a state berth.

Holt was teamed up with Kolbi Quist-Richard, Lovenie Dantes and Gabriella Nathan-Funk.

“These girls came together the last month of the season,” Armijo coach Dave Monk said. “This was far beyond my expectations. We had to have a lot of parts come together. The freshman Lovenie has done a lot for us the last month of the season.

“We lose Tyra and Gabby (next season), but we’ve got a ton of young girls in the program right now. Two of them are in the stands right now watching and they can’t wait to be a part of this next year.”

Vacaville’s David Mewborn is heading to state in four events. He was third in the boys 100 in 10.90 and third in the 200 in 21.89.

The Vacaville boys 4×100 relay team of Daniel Mewborn, David Mewborn, Elgin Lovell and Mykal Walker is moving on after finishing third. They ran a season best time of 42.32.

The same team of Bulldogs also finished third in the 4×400 relay with a time of 3:17.22 to move on.

Vacaville’s Nia Vance won the girls triple jump with a person best jump of 38-9 ¾.

Vanden High’s Dion Williams finished fourth in the boy‘s triple jump and will be an alternate for state after jumping a lifetime-best of 45-0.

Armijo’s Nathan-Funk was also fourth and will be an alternate in the girls 800 after clocking in at 2:18.93.

Here’s the list of competitors that competed in the Friday’s finals that didn’t qualify for the state championships:

Rodriguez — Jacob Azevedo (discus, 19th, 128-3) and Alanna Epps (100, 6th, 12.44, 200, 6th, 25.55).

Vanden — Javin White (high jump, no height) and the boys 4×400 relay team (7th, 3:25.37).

Armijo — Aryel Moreland (triple jump, 19th, 32-10 ½) and Isaiah Hamilton (triple jump, 11th, 42-7 ½).

Vacaville — Elizabeth Rourk (shot, 34-3), Hannah Davis (triple jump, 9th, 35-0 ½), Walker (300 hurdles, 6th, 39.76), and Breanna Sewell (3,200, 16th, 11:25.66).
