Vacaville looking to get over final hurdle in SJS Division I meet

From page B1 | May 21, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — After finishing second the last three years in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I track and field championships – by a combined seven points – the Vacaville High girls team is ready to get over that final hurdle.

Literally.

The Bulldogs have the four of the top five seeds in the 100-meter low hurdles and four of the top eight seeds in the 300 lows heading into the Division I trials at Elk Grove HIgh. The pole vault competition starts at 1 p.m., the rest of the field events and running events at 3 p.m.

The top eight finishers on Wednesday advance to Friday’s finals and automatically qualify for next week’s SJS Masters championships, also at Elk Grove. Those finishing ninth through 16th on Wednesday advance to Friday’s consolation finals with the top four moving on to Masters.

Last year the Bulldogs had 76 points to St. Francis’ 77, in 2012 they had 63 to Monterey Trail’s 68 and in 2011 they had 42 to Fairfield’s 43.

If that’s to change, Vacaville will need a big lift from its hurdlers.

In the 100s, Pattriana Perry, who will run in the fourth and final heat, is seeded first overall at 14.00 seconds, just off the SJS Division I record time of 13.90 set by Daje Pugh of Fairfield in 2012.

Backing up Perry are Daria Cook (seeded first in the third heat, second overall, 14.49), Jurnee Woodward (seeded first in the second heat, third overall, 14.67) and Nia Vance (seeded second in the first heat, fifth overall, 15.13).

The order shifts in the 300s with only a slight change in the cast of characters.

Woodward, seeded first overall (42.77) will go in the fourth heat. Preceding her are Perry (seeded first in the third heat, second overall, 44.43), Cook (seeded second in the second heat, sixth overall, 46.11) and Hannah Davis (seeded third in the first heat, tied for eighth overall, 46.16).

Pugh also holds the Division I mark in the 300s at 42.08, also set in 2012. She went on to win the state championship that season in the 300s.

The Bulldogs will be looking for big things from their relays, going in seeded first in the second heat, third overall in the 4×100 (48.36) and seeded first in the third heat, second overall in the 4×400 (3:56.96).

In Wednesday’s field events, Vance is seeded third in the long jump (17 feet, 8 1/4 inches), while Skyler Takeda is seeded 10th in the discus (106-4).

Vacaville’s boys finished as high as second two years ago and are looking to contend again.

The top seeds for the Bulldogs are the 4×100 relay team (seeded first in the third heat, second overall, 42.37), Mykal Walker in the 300 intermediate hurdles (seeded first in the second heat, third overall, 39.60) and the 4×400 relay team (seeded first in the second heat, third overall, 3:21.94).

Other high seeds include David Mewborn in the 100 (seeded second in the second heat, seventh overall, 10.91) and 200 (seeded second in first heat, tied for fifth overall, 22.04), Jack Gabbard in the shot put (10th overall, 47-6) and Daniel Mewborn in the 400 (seeded third in fourth heat, tied for 12th overall, 50.59).

Among city teams, the Rodriguez girls have the most upper seeds. They include Megan Dulaney in the discus (seeded first overall, 131-11), Alanna Epps in the 100 (seeded second in fourth heat, ninth overall, 12.48) and 200 (seeded first in the second heat, fourth overall, 25.27), Lauren Reed in the 400 (seeded second in the third heat, eighth overall, 58.51), the 4×100 relay team (seeded second in the third heat, seventh overall, 49.51) and the 4×400 relay team (seeded second in the fourth heat, eighth overall, 4:06.36).

Top seeds for the Rodriguez boys are the 4×100 relay team (seeded second in the first heat, fifth overall, 43.00) and Armando Day in the 400 (seeded third in the fifth heat, 10th overall, 50.62).

For Armijo, its girls 4×400 relay team is seeded first in first heat, fourth overall (4:01.92). Other contenders are the 4×100 relay team (seeded third in the second heat, 11th overall, 49.94) and Gabriella Nathan-Funk in the 800 (seeded third in the first heat, 12th overall, 2:24.04).

The top seed for the Armijo boys team is Corey Stewart in the 300 hurdles (seeded third in the third heat, 10th overall, 40.79), followed by the boys 4×400 relay team (seeded fourth in the first heat, 13th overall, 3:28.61).

Seedings for events to be contested on Friday only (girls shot put, boys discus, the triple jumps, high jumps, 1,600s and 3,200s) were not available.

Vanden and Fairfield will compete in the SJS Division II-III meet at Bella Vista of Fair Oaks with trials on Wednesday, finals on Friday. Seedings for that meet were not available.
