Buffalos ramble into the Old Capital for more qualifying marks

On a drearily cold, cloudy rain-threatening St. Patrick’s Day Eve, the Valley Track team trekked north in the wee dark hours for Fillmore and the Old Capital Invitational. Although not optimum conditions for notching personal records, Head Coach Joseph Sorensen acknowledges that improvements have been struck-up toward their ultimate individual and team goals.



In his assessment of the meet’s yield, he shares some notable strides, saying, “The State qualifiers were Kimber Reeve in the Discus; she wound-up with 107 [feet] and second in Javelin. Elora took fifth in the two-mile. Elora did awesome; she really ran a good race! We had Jane Jennings qualified in the 200 [meter.] The Girls Relays qualified the week before, but they took a little bit off their time this week. We had a lot of kids that were super-close: Maddie Cox in the 200 and 100. Brianna Martinez was one inch away from qualifying in the High Jump. Boede [Cox] was one second behind in the 400 [meter.] We have a few hurdlers this year. All young and still learning technique, but getting better every week. We’re hoping the weather helps us out and the kids can run their best at Pine View this week.”
