At the Division IV-V meet at Turlock last week a handful of Riverbank athletes competed to qualify to the Masters meet this week in Elk Grove.
“Michael Rodriguez finished his very impressive season with a fourth place finish in the 800 and a personal record of 2:02. His time also put him into the Riverbank Track and Field Elite Club as he hit 2:02 in his final race,” said head coach Monte Wood. “He did qualify to the Master’s Meet; however, graduation is on Thursday this year, so he will not be competing so that he can graduate with his classmates.”
Lady Bruin Kim Ruvalcaba also qualified to the Master’s Meet by finishing fourth in the girls 3200.
“That race is on Friday night, so her season isn’t over yet,” noted Wood.
Others that competed were:
Ruben Paredez seventh in the 1600 with a personal record of 4:39; Sierra Nabors and Lydia Hodges tied for sixth place in the pole vault; Martin Cornejo finished eighth in the discus; Omar Montoya was seventh in the shot put.
Also, Wood pointed out, Daniel Martens set a new personal record in the triple jump with a jump of 41’6” but he did not make the finals.
“Those were the notable performances from the divisional meet,” Wood said.
