ROCKLIN _ The Lincoln High track and field team made a good showing at the CAL Invitational Meet held at Whitney High School last Saturday. The cool and mostly dry conditions were optimal for fast times and greater distances as the Fighting Zebras continued preparations for Pioneer Valley League competition to begin next weekend at Colfax, and then continue mid-April. The Lincoln boys placed seventh among 18 schools, the girls 14 in a field of 17, and the boys junior varsity placed fifth out of 18 schools. “The whole team, we’re a lot better than we were last year,” said Zachary Evans, who placed third in the 200 meters in the junior varsity competition. “We have a lot of underclassmen.” Evans said he thought Colfax would be the toughest club to beat in the PVL. The Zebras’ Stephen Hay captured the pole vault winning by 18 inches. He cleared 11 feet, 6 inches for the winning vault. Hay was also third in the 110 meter, 39-inch hurdles with a time of 16.87 seconds. Matthew Probst just missed the gold medal in the discus with a toss of 129-05. The winning distance was 130-09. The junior varsity totaled 38 team points picking up a first in the long jump and seconds in the pole vault and discus. Lincoln’s Leo Calderon leaped 19-10 in the long jump for the win. Teammate Liam Hao missed second play by an inch going 19-07. Dylan Toerpe took silver in the pole vault clearing 8 feet, and Josh Myers hurled the discus 108-08 for second place. The varsity girls competed in 13 of the events and did very well in the pole vault. Savannah Berkley took second in the event going 8 feet, and Kelsi Snook claimed third with a vault of 7-6. Kalie Federwisch had the best showing in the running events placing ninth in the 400 meters.
