Last Friday, May 5th, the regular season came to a close for the Comanche Track & Field team as they competed in the Crestview League Finals at Brea Olinda High School. To say it was a success would be putting it mildly. Among the league’s four teams, girls varsity took the top spot in 10 of the 16 events contested, easily distancing second placed Brea Olinda for the league championship, while boys varsity won 5 out of the 16 events and narrowly missed pulling off an upset over top-ranked Brea Olinda.

Virtually everyone who put on black and gold had their best showing of the season, but nobody carried the team on their back like senior Kaelin Moore. Canyon’s very own version of Atlas descended upon the track with such fury, scoring over ⅓ of the team’s total points en route to winning the 110 High Hurdles, 400 Meter Dash, and 300 Intermediate Hurdles, plus a second place in the Triple Jump, that his competitors could do little more than shrug their shoulders afterwards.

Sara Leonard held on to her league title in the 1600 Meters for the third consecutive year and obtained her second league championship title in the 3200 Meters. Another Comanche leader, Rachel Baxter, walked away clinching three league championship titles in the high jump, pole vault and 4 x 100 Meter Relay. Baxter, the national leader in the pole vault for the second consecutive year, will be focusing on her specialty only as she advance through C.I.F. 

The following Canyon athletes scored points on the varsity level by finishing in the top 5 for individual events. “C.I.F.” after their name indicates they will be competing at C.I.F. Prelims this weekend, Saturday, May 13, 2017 at Moorpark High School in Moorpark, California. Field events start at 11:00 a.m. and running events start at 12:00 p.m.
