Record Breaking Start to Warriors Track & Field Season

School Records are hard to come by. Some records last years, some decades, some even longer.  But in 2012 records seem to be falling victim to superb early season marks almost weekly.

The first record to fall this season was the 1600 meters.  In the first race of the year Sean Davis bettered his own mark of 4:21 by over 4 seconds at the K-Bell Invitational running 4:17.43.  A week later the record books were again rewritten as Davis anchored the 800 meter Sprint Medley team of Jarrod Lawson, Julian Tuyor and Byron Marshall with a blistering time of 1:36.21

Two more records fell at the St. Francis Invitational that day: Theodore King hurled the  shot put 48-10 to better the previous record set back in 1993 and Kristin Sato bettered her school record in the triple jump with a mark of 36-6.  No wind reading keeps it from being an official record but it remains the furthest jump in school history.

Then just 5 days later in a WCAL dual against Sacred Heart Cathedral the 4 x 100 meter relay team of Marshall, Tuyor, and Lawson were at it again, this time with Ryan Severson, setting the school record in their first try of the season with an impressive 41.81.  Their time betters the mark set in 2002 at the CCS Finals and is currently 5th in the State and top 40 in the nation!

Then just Saturday Davis went to work on another one of his school records, this time the 800 meters.  Running in Southern California at the Azuza Meet of Champions Davis took nearly a second off of his previous best running 1:54.59.

The Warriors hope to carry their early season momentum into the remainder of the season as competition is just now starting to heat up with upcoming meets such as Stanford, Arcadia, Top 8, WCAL and CCS coming up in April & May.
