Sahuaro High School cleans up in Tucson track & field meet

Kathy Fisher wasn’t able to compete in the 300 Hurdles in Wednesday’s four-way track meet.  But Sahuaro High School managed just fine without her participation in that event.

Sahuaro HS collected wins in a total of 19 events, 11 of which were in the girls’ competition, to sweep Sabino HS, Sahuarita HS, and Desert Christian HS.   The boys piled up 131 points in winning eight events and the girls scored 128 points.

Fisher was nursing a pulled muscle, so she just ran the dashes and a relay.  And won all three.  Hard to tell what her times might have been without the muscle injury.

The sophomore won the 10om in 12.61, the 200m in 26.59, and then anchored the 400m relay team as they won that event in a time of 52.20. Both the 100m and 200m times were a personal best, according to her listings on MileSplit.

She had run the 300 Hurdles over the weekend at the Willie Williams Invitational at University of Arizona, where she finished fifth in a time of 47.25.

Oh yeah, she’s also recorded a 14’10” long jump.

The Sahuaro boys more than made up for Fisher’s absence in the long jump, as they took the top five spots in that event.  Christian Moeykens led the group with a winning jump of 19’3″ – and also took the triple jump to finish a Sahuaro sweep of the jumping events, going 38’1″.  The boys also took the top four places in the high jump, where Kyle Cady and Edgardo Galindo tied for first at 5’8″.

Christine Corrao also recorded a personal best time in the pole vault, where she cleared the bar at 9’9″.

Sabino HS had several bright spots on the day.  A sweep of the throwing events helped boost the team’s morale.

Jake Walker won the ‘throw-off’ to break a tie with Sahuaro’s Anthony Enriquez, hitting130’10” on his third try, and Matt Rossi won the shot put with a heave of 45’1″.

There was more success for Sabino HS in the running events. Patrick Yonas  won the 100m in 10.73 and the 200m in 22.93.
