Warriors Post Impressive Pre-Season Marks

San Jose, CA – Early season marks from athletes eager to get the rust off in local all-comers and indoor meets have been impressive this pre-season. It is no surprise that some of the top marks in the state have come from the duo of Elena Bruckner and Ronna Stone. Stone set a personal best at the Los Gatos All-Comer on January 17 with a toss of 42’ 4” in the shot put, a mark that moves her to #29 all-time in CCS history. At the same meet Bruckner hit a personal best of 132’ 11” in the discus.

Bruckner, competing in her first indoor meet at the University of Washington on February 7, garnered the state leading mark in the shot put with a throw of 14.52 meters (47’ 7.75”). That mark moves her to #3 all-time in the central coast section. 

“I had no coach, no parents, a new shot and was in a different state entirely,” Bruckner posted to her Facebook page following the UW Indoor meet. “I am so happy to be starting my season with a California state leading mark. I can't wait for school meets to start up!”

Other early season marks have come from Elane Ma who hit 15’ 11.25” in the long jump in her first outing at Los Gatos. Ashley Lara and Kailey Eddy traveled to Berkley for the first All-Comer meet at Cal. Lara won her heat with a time of 2:31.04 in the 800. Kailey Eddy ran 5:35.04 for 1500 meters.

Warriors track & field open their outdoor season March 7.
