Bucks shine in opening meet

1A track/field — Remy Brentano wins three individual events; David Martinez captures two as SPHS competes in Estacada


Led by juniors Remy Brentano and David Martinez, the St. Paul track teams kicked off the 2014 season in style March 19 at the Estacada Opener.

The event was mostly a dual between the Rangers and Buckaroos, but St. Stephens Academy also entered a handful of athletes.

Brentano spearheaded the effort in the girls meet, taking first place in both the 100- (13.70) and 200-meter dashes (28.00), the long jump (15-2.5) and then teamed up with senior Carolina Ruvalcaba and sophomores Sydney Brentano and Shelby Donaldson to win the 4 x 100 relay in 56.21 seconds.

Sophomore Emma Coleman won the shot put title with a throw of 29 feet, 1 inch and was also second in the discus (60-5).

The Bucks also got strong performances from: sophomore Allyson Petrjanos, who took second in the triple jump (25-6.5); freshman Giselda Vargas-Ayala, who was third in both the shot put (24-3) and the discus (54-2); Ruvalcaba, who placed third in the 100 (13.98) and fourth in the 200 (29.78); senior Delaney Sump, who was fourth in the 800 in a personal best time of 2:51.87; and junior Karina Diaz, who was fourth in the 100 hurdles in 24.87.

On the boy’s side, Martinez won the 100 in a personal-best time of 12.24, the long jump (17-5.5), also a personal best, and joined up with freshman Fernando Dela Cerda, junior Ryan Soumokil and junior David Elias to win the 4 x 100 relay in 49.54.

Elias also won the 800 in 2:19.27, junior Keenan Phillips set a new PR to place first in the 110 hurdles (20.98) and Dela Cerda captured the javelin with a personal-best toss of 109-6 for St. Paul’s other wins.

Senior Zach Adams had a strong day throwing, placing second in the shot put (38-10) and third in the discus (93-11) behind senior teammate and runner-up Austin Burleson (114-9).

Also placing in the top four were: Soumokil, who placed second in the 100 (12.31) and the long jump (17-3.25); Dela Cerda, who was third in the long jump (16-11) and fourth in the shot put (32-0) behind senior teammate Jose Salas in third (33-4); Austin Burleson, who was third in the triple jump (31-3.5); and sophomore Sacrobi Izquierdo, who was fourth in the discus (82-5).

St. Paul will send a handful of athletes to the Canby All-Comers Meet on Wednesday, but otherwise will be off until April 5, when it will travel to take on Junction City.
