Sunnyside, Grandview tracksters fare well at Papa Wells invitational

MOXEE - Neither the Sunnyside nor the Grandview track and field teams brought home any first-place finishes from last Saturday's Eugene "Papa" Wells Invitational. Regardless, both the Grizzly and Greyhound tracksters held their own at the 34-school, non-scoring meet.

Grandview had six athletes who garnered 'Top 10' finishes. In the varsity events, it was junior Jamila Shafer who ended up as the Greyhounds' top performer. She notched the third-best throw on the day in the girls discus.

A total of 15 Sunnyside track and field team members notched 'Top 10' performances, several of whom accomplished that feat more than once. The most consistent Grizzly to place in the top 10 was senior Eduardo Salmeron. He came away with fourth-place honors in both the long jump and triple jump - placing fourth, too, as a member of Sunnyside's 4x100 relay squad - and he posted the sixth-best mark on the day in the boys high jump.

Five of Salmeron's teammates each returned home with three 'Top 10' finishes from the prestigious meet.

The Sunnyside standouts in the boys events included senior Eric Amaro (2nd-javelin, 6th-110m hurdles, 9th-discus); junior Elijah Pena (2nd-110m hurdles, 4th-4x100 relay, 5th-300m hurdles); and sophomore Bernaldo Madrigal (4th-4x100 relay, 5th-200m, 2nd-freshman/sophomore 100m).

The two SHS girls who each notched three 'Top 10' performances were junior Brittney Broersma (2nd-300m hurdles, 4th-100m hurdles, 4th-4x200 relay) and junior Vanessa Alvarez (4th-4x200 relay, 8th-100m, 9th-long jump).
