Islander Track & Field Head Coach George Green provides a peek into his teams’ performances from last week. “There wasn’t a lot of action for track last week, but there were a few performances worthy of mention.
“In a dual meet with Madison High School Thursday, Victoria Perez won both the shot put and discus throw as usual. Her mark in the shot put of 36 feet, 2 inches, was eight inches farther than her 35-6 toss on March 14 that broke her school record from last season of 34-7.
“At the UCSD Triton Invite, Nick Dunn posted a Personal Record for a Fully Automatic Time (FAT) in the 100-meter dash of 11.26. He also ran 23.16 FAT for the 200. I put Sofia Van Arsdale in the Jaguar Invite to get her a qualifying time for the upcoming Frosh/Soph meet. She placed fourth in 5:23.69 for her first-ever 1,600-meter run, which should put her in the fast heat among sophomores. She currently ranks second among all San Diego sophomores in the 800 with a time of 2:19.85.
“Also, at the Madison meet, Shane Alihan tried the 400 for the first time and placed second in 55.78. Freshman John Cook three-stepped the 110 hurdles for a win in 18.84. He also placed second in the 300 hurdles with a time of 47.34. Jack Weisbrod and Joe Whalen went 2-3 in the shot put at 34-8 and 33-1 respectively. Weisbrod also placed second in the discus with 86-9. Weisbrod’s marks in the shot and disc should get him in the sophomore flights at the upcoming County Frosh/Soph meet.”
