The Reed track and field team capped a busy and successful week with fourth-place finishes in both the girls and boys competitions at the Del Oro Invitational in Loomis Calif. Friday.

There were 24 schools competing at the event.

“I was happy with those kids that competed for us on Friday,” Reed track coach Dale Moss said. “Because of Spring Break we were missing some kids and I fell we could have done a little better as a team. But those that were there did a great job in competing, a lot of kids got a lot of personal bests in their events and it was sure nice to get into some warm weather finally.”

The girls were led by sophomore Adrianna Newell. She had three first-place finishes in the 100m (12.34), the 200m (25.72) and the 400m (59.06), setting personal bests on the season and they were good enough to break the old meet records. Newell also anchored the second-place 4x300m relay team.

Three other girls took third with personal bests in their respective events: Amanda Sharkey in the 400 (61.35), Sierra Hooft in the 300m hurdles (48.60) and Nicole Kersting in the triple jump (32’). Sharkey and Hooft were also part of the 4x400m relay.

The boys were led by Josh Gingras, he took second in the 100m (11.18) and first in the 200m (22.30), improving on his personal bests for the season. Currently, he has the best times in these events in Northern Nevada this year. He also helped the 4x100m relay to a second-place finish.

Also performing well was Spencer Stockton, who took second in the high jump with a personal best of 6’0” and third in the long jump with a jump of 19’5.5”. He was part of the 4x100m relay. Stockton high jump mark puts him in the top three of Northern Nevada marks.

Brent Showalter pole vaulted to an all-time personal best by clearing a height of 14’0”, putting him in a good position to compete for a spot to go to state in a few weeks according to Moss.

Reed will compete at the Rail City Championships along with Spanish Springs and Sparks Tuesday. The inaugural event sponsored by Scheels and the Sparks Tribune will be hosted by Sparks High.
