The top track and field athletes from the Central Coast were in Walnut on Saturday for the CIF-Southern Section Finals. Each event had four divisions with the top performers in each event regardless of division advancing to next weeks CIF-SS Masters Meet at Cerritos College. In the running events up to the 400 meters, the top nine times advance to Masters. The top 12 advance in the 800M and up as well as all field events.
Arroyo Grande's Elijah Holt won the Division-2 boys 110 meter hurdles with a time of 14.27, the senior was .54 seconds better than the second place runner. In the Division-4 boys pole vault, junior Joseph Castellanos from St. Joseph was the winner as he cleared 14-06. San Luis Obispo's Connor Hall went over 15-06 in Division-3 which tied him for the best mark with three other competitors. Hall had more attempts than two of the other athletes and so he finished third but did have a good enough mark to advance to the CIF-SS Masters Meet.
On the girls side, Arroyo Grande senior Jade Fuller crushed her personal best time in the 800 meters and won the Division-2 race. Fuller had a time of 2:13.93, the fourth fastest of the day when you include the other divisions. Dos Pueblos junior Stamatia Scarvelis edged Arroyo Grande senior Madison Jacobs in the Division-2 shot put and discuss throw. Scarvelis had a top throw of 49-04.5 compared to 44-04.5 for Jacobs in the shot put. In the discus, Scarvelis cleared 161-06 compared to 152-11 for Jacobs who finished second in both events. In Division-3, Nipomo's Taylor Nevitt was the winner in the discus with a throw of 115-06. Lompoc's Chrisshnay Brow was second.
