Riverbank High School athletes Kasey Wool and Britanny Harrison both broke school records as the girls team placed second out of 12 in a track and field meet at Modesto Junior College on Friday.

Wool won the long jump with a distance of 15-6 in her last leap of the day, said Bruin coach Monte Wood.

She also placed second in the 100 meter high hurdles in 16.5, second in the low 300 meter hurdles in 49.3 and third in the pole vault with a height of 10 feet.

Harrison set a new RHS record for the 3,200 meters with a time of 12 minutes flat, clipping the old record by 12 seconds.

Georgina Arnold took fourth place, setting a personal record of 5:36 for the 1,600 meters and another PR of 2:39 for the 800 meters giving her fifth place.

Kelly Clancey, a freshman, won the triple jump with 32 feet.

Brianna Melchor placed fourth in the 3,200 meters in a time of 12:14 and Maritza Garcia was second in the 800 meters in 49.3.

The Bruin boys team finished in fourth place, being the smallest school in competition against 11 other schools of over,500 students.

David Harrison won the pole vault with a height of 17-1, was third in the 300 meter hurdles in 42:9 and fifth in the 110 low hurdles, setting personal records in all three events.

Jesse Sesma placed second in the shot put, and Ralphie Stevens won the triple jump with a distance of 42 feet.

Ben DeYoung placed second in the pole vault and Brandon Parker set personal bests in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100 relay.

Today, the Riverbank track teams will compete away against Hughson, and next Wednesday stage their first home meet against Ripon.
