One of the best match ups all year has been in the boys high hurdles and we came as close as possible to losing that today.
Although Maria Carrillo’s Zack Nelson has turned the tables on Montgomery’s Thomas Thomsen before the winner has usually been Thomsen.
Thomsen held the prep best going in at 15.32.
In heat one Nelson ran 15.27 moving him to =24th All-Time FAT in that event.
Whether it was watching that race and pushing to hard or some other factor Thomsen in heat 2 hit the 4th hurdle hard and finished well back in his heat at 17.11 and worse than that a non-final qualifying 9th overall.
But the match up will happen in the finals because one of the qualifying top 8 from Rancho has dropped the event moving Thomsen into the last spot.
Now the 300 hurdle races rewrite the 2017 Prep best list.
Heat one looked like a frosh/soph race with 5 of the 7 fitting in those classes but the times sure didn’t.
In that heat Santa Rosa’s Brayden Glascock moved to 31st All-Time and 5th Sophomore while Montgomery’s Brent Oru-Craig was right behind him in 40.53 moving to 43rd All-Time and 7th Sophomore.
Maria Carrillo’s Cameron De Latorre held the Prep best at 40.89 coming in today and won his heat at 40.86.
Nelson (40.99) and Thomsen (42.55) both moved on to the finals as well.
I have not heard the reason yet but Carrillo’s Isaiah Smith did not run the 400 yet the team still had a shining star as Tyler VanArden scorched a 50.64 to move to the 7th All-Time Sophomore.
Montgomery’s Jaymes Tischbern still looks like the favorite in the sprints winning his heats in 11.20 +0.8 and 22.46 +1.6.
Maria Carrillo sohomore Severin Ramirez was very impressive in his heat wins at 11.21 +1.6 and 22.46 +0.6. Ramirez moves to 8th Sophomore All-Time in the 200.
While teammate Tyler VanArden who pushed Tischbern in his heat moves to 7th FAT Sophomore All-Time with his 22.64.
In the long jump Casa Grande qualified four jumpers onto the final including the top 3 marks as Duilio Froes lead the way at 20-10.5.
Froes also lead the triple jump with a Prep Best of 43-1.
Windsor’s Ruben Mehler had the top marks in both the throws leading at 43-9.5 and 136-5.
