The Reed track and field team took a handful of athletes to the Sacramento Meet of Champions at Hughes Stadium this past weekend and the Raiders didn’t disappoint.

Leading the boys was Josh Gingras, who won the 100-meter dash in the open division with a time of 11.40 seconds. Gingras took second in the 200m (22.95) and was a part of the 4x100m relay team with Garrett Stegmiere, John Covello and Spencer Stockton that took third with their best time of the year, 43.25 seconds.

Freshman Gabby Williams and sophomore Adriana Newell had solid days for the girls. Williams won the girls high jump with a jump of 5’8”. She also ran in the 300m hurdles and grabbed second with a personal best of 45.08 seconds.

Newell took second in the 400m, running her best time of the year, 57.60 seconds. She also placed second in the 200-meter dash (26.32). The 4x400m relay team of Newell, Tiare Fonoimoana, Sierra Hooft and Williams placed third with a time of 4:05.04.

Junior Nyasha LeSure was second behind Williams in the high jump, clearing 5’2”.

“We finally had warm weather to run and compete in,” Reed track coach Dale Moss said. “The only bummer was there was a head wind that was equivalent of a .3 to .4 second difference in the sprints. We had great competition and all the kids stepped up and competed among the best of California. This was perfect timing to go against such competition going into regional trials this week.”

It's unfortunate that Cody Forman was not mentioned. He ran his PR of 2:04 in the open 800 meters. He placed first in his heat and fifth overall. Good job, Cody!!!!
