Team Highlights: Avis Kelley Invitational

Gilroy, CA - The Valley Christian Track & Field team competed in the Avis Kelley Invitational at Gilroy High School, Saturday.

The Warriors throws crew was outstanding taking home wins in both the girls and boys discus. Anna Maumalanga showed her personal best throw of 124-4 in Wednesday's dual was no fluke, winning the event with a mark of 122-8. Max Moore also took the win with a mark of 139-0, just off his season best.

Camille Johnson is just one week into the track & field season after a deep post-season run by the girls basketball team and finished fifth in the shot put with a mark of 32-3. Johnson is the school record holder and all-American javelin thrower from last year's Junior Olympics but is her first attempt at Shot Put. Elizabeth He matched her breakthrough performance Wednesday once again throwing 31-1, finishing seventh.

Outstanding results came in the sprints as well. Nick Trofort took second in the 100 meters with a personal best 11.23.
