Islander Track & Field Head Coach George Green provides a report on the happenings in Boys and Girls Track. “The Islander Track schedule last week consisted of two popular Pre-City League Finals events, the Escondido Invite Friday, and the Frosh/Soph meet Saturday.

“Entry into each are performance-based. We sent two athletes to the Frosh/Soph meet and six to Escondido. Our top performer at Escondido was Alysah Hickey who won both the high jump and long jump, with meet record marks in both. After leaving all the other high jumpers behind at 5 feet, 2 inches, Alysah had the bar set to 5-7 which she cleared on her first try. Then the bar was set to 5-9 which she soared over easily. The final height she tried was 5 feet, 11.25 inches in an attempt to break the all-time San Diego Section CIF record of 5-11. She came very close on her second attempt, brushing the bar with her calf on the way down. Hickey’s competition in the long jump was stronger, with three competitors jumping over 18 feet. However, her winning jump of 19 feet, 4 inches, was nearly 15 inches beyond the second-place jumper. 

“Victoria Perez also had a big day while placing third with a Personal Record in the discus throw of 125 feet, 5 inches. She threw over six feet farther than her previous best, which was her school record toss last season of 119 feet, 2 inches. Madden Hundley posted a season-best time for the 1,600 meters of 5:14.25, while Nick Dunn placed fifth in the 100 with a time of 11.21 and eighth in the 200 with 22.83.  The winner of the 100 was Madison’s Kenan Christon, who blazed to a time of 10.42 to claim the second-best time in the state this season. Christon also won the 200 meters, with Dunn in the field, in a time of 20.67 seconds. 

“At the Frosh/Soph meet, Abigail Hundley posted a season-best time of 5:19.78 in the Soph 1,600. In the Frosh races, John Cook placed fifth in the Invite 110-meter hurdles with a time of 17.85, as well as seventh in the 300 open hurdles in 46.13. Our next meet is the League Finals this Friday at Kearny High School, followed by the CIF prelims May 11.”
