YAKIMA - The Grandview High School boys and girls track teams competed this past Saturday at the Davis Invite.
The Lady Greyhounds were sparked by Adriana Ramos, who earned third place honors in the high jump with a mark of 4-10.
"That was her best in the high jump," said Grandview Coach David Gibb. The coach noted it was one of several personal bests Grandview posted on the day.
The event was won by Hanford's Veronica Bradley with a leap of 5-2.
Ramos was also sixth in the javelin for the Grandview girls, as she recorded a throw of 94-2. The top mark in the javelin was Ike's Brooke Brown, with an effort of 116-7.
In other top-ten finishes for the Lady Greyhounds, Miranda Ebbelaar was fourth in the freshman/sophomore high jump competition with an effort of 4-4. Gibb said the mark was impressive given that Ebbelaar only started high jumping two weeks ago.
Ferris' Carmen Richardson won the event in 4-8.
Brandy Atkinson earned a ninth place finish in the long jump for Grandview's varsity at 13-5.
The Grandview girls top-ten placers also included Karissa Trinidad, who was ninth in the freshman/sophomore 200 meters (32.21) and seventh in the freshman/sophomore 400 meters (1:17.72).
The Greyhound boys were led by Javier Neri's pair of fifth-place finishes in the 1,600 meters (4:47.41) and the 3,200 (10:39.34). Neri's time in the 1,600 is his best to date.
Jeffrey Ott of Ellensburg won the 1,600 in 4:32.41 and Keegan McCormick of Kamiakin captured top honors in the 3,200 in 10:16.17.
Other top-ten finishes for the Grandview boys included Daniel Lara at eighth place in the triple jump with a mark of 36-1.5 and Herman Herrera finishing in 10th place at 135-5 in the javelin.
Alex Torres grabbed sixth place honors for Grandview in the freshman/sophomore 100 meters with a time of 12.28. The race was won by Kamiakin's Tyler Perrins in 11.78.
No team scores were recorded at the Davis Invite, which also featured several larger schools.
"We had some kids who really stood out, they all competed as well as they could and I'm proud of the all-around effort," Gibb said.
The Grandview track teams next compete this Thursday, April 14, at East Valley.
