The Triton Winter Team made a trip to Azusa Pacific University this Saturday for the final qualifying meet into the California Winter State Championships, which will be held on February 11th at Arcadia High School. With one last chance, 3 Tritons successfully earned their place, bringing the total to 8 qualifiers.
Sandra Harness had a busy day as she qualified for 4 events. Those events included the Triple Jump, 60 meter dash, 60 meter hurdles, and the 4x200 meter relay. Included on that relay team was Dajshai Bennett, who improved from last week's performance to clock a qualifying time in the 60 meter dash. Jasmine Guerrero (60m) and Camille Codera (60m) were the other 2 members of the Girls 4x200 meter relay team that improved their time by 5 seconds to claim their spot at the Championships.
The Boys 4x200 meter relay team consisting of Ray Ortiz (60m), Gonzalo Chavez (300m), Kamar Wilson (HJ/60m), and Cyrus Prudhomme (60m) improved their qualifying time by 2 seconds to tune up before the Championships next Saturday.
Michael Chester jumped a lifetime best in the Long Jump, and Erick Chavez matched his lifetime best as well. Neftali Guerrero improved his 300 meter dash time by over a half second.
