G'view tracksters compete at Cashmere Invite

CASHMERE - Only a handful of the members of Grandview's track and field team were able to compete this past Saturday, but they did well, making several placings, said Coach Jared Lind.

Competing against 15 other teams, the invite, which made up of mostly 2A schools, was a preview to what State will be like later in the season, said Lind.

With many of the members of the team tied up with other commitments, Lind said those who attended excelled, especially in the boys' competitions. The boys tied for fourth place at the meet.

Cordero Cisneros placed second in the 1,500-meter and 800-meter events Saturday, according to Lind.

Cisneros clocked a time of 4:11.5 in the 1,500 and 2.00.8 in the 800-meter. In the 800-meter event Cisneros placed behind Sallas of Chelan, who clocked a time of 2:00.1.

Grandview's Juan Razo tied for second with a clocking of 42.0 in the 300 hurdles.

"He dropped his (personal best) time by two seconds," said Lind.

Also placing second was Silas Hansen of Grandview in the long jump with an 18-11 1/2 effort.

The Grandview boys 4x400 relay team also earned second place honors with clocking of 3:37.7.

In the high jump, Grandview's Noel Hinojosa placed fourth with a 5-8 effort.

Also placing for the Greyhounds was Josue Schneegans, who placed sixth in the triple jump.

In the girls events, Akane Tomizawa of Grandview placed third in the pole vault with an 8-0 effort. Cashmere's Ingham placed, first launching herself a distance of 8-6.

Also placing for Grandview's girls was Johnston, who placed fourth in the 400-meter event. She clocked a time of 1.05.0.

"There were a lot of personal records set there," said Lind. "A lot of the kids, especially the girls, didn't place, but they did the best they have all year."
