Bruckner and Stone Dominant in Season Opener at Willow Glen Invitational

IMG_1045San Jose, CA -  In what was meant to be a low key season opener for the Warriors, quickly became an explosion of state leading marks. The first meet of the season is generally one coaches use to metaphorically "get the rust off" and to test the early season fitness, but for Bruckner and Stone it was more like igniting dynamite. Beginning with the discus Bruckner's throw of 152-8 is the seventh furthest in the history of CCS. Stone moves to twenty fifth all-time with her throw of 142-4.

Later that afternoon it was another spectacular showing by Bruckner and Stone, this time in the shot put. It was another 1-2 finish for the duo: Bruckner with a huge throw of 49-0; Stone 41-0 impressively. Bruckner is now #2 all-time in CCS history.

Tiffani Johnson was close behind in fifth with a 13.92 clocking and Nicole Shak twelfth in 14.27. Rowland also finished 3rd in the 200 meters in another personal best of 28.25. Shak also dipped under the 30 second barrier with a personal best as well in 29.77. Adelyn Bui finished 13th in 30.09.

Frosh-Soph throws were impressive in their first competition. Anna Maumalunga finished first in the girls shot put and second in the discus. Elizabeth He was third in the shot put and sixth in the discus.

The boys also had a strong showing in the field events. Max Moore finished 5th in the discus with a strong first showing hitting 95' 5" in the discus. Dylan McCreery finished 6th in the shot put with a mark of 37-9. Also in the field events Mathew Weeks finished 7th with a mark of 17' 9" in the long jump
