Six SBCC athletes qualified for the finals on Saturday in the Southern Cal Track and Field Prelims at San Diego Mesa.
Scott Santella led the men, clearing 1.90 meters (6-2¾) to tie for third in the high jump. The competition was halted once they had enough qualifiers for Saturday’s Southern Cal Finals at San Diego Mesa.
Tristan Lake qualified with a sixth-place effort in the 400 hurdles (53.94), tying the third-fastest mark in school history. He also has the No. 2 time of 53.69, just three-tenths off the record.
Matthew Bailey advanced in two events — taking eighth in the 1500 (3:58.73) and ninth in the 800 (1:56.45).
Female qualifiers for the Vaqueros were Zoe Davis in the shot put (8th, 11.33 meters) and Cecilia Instebo and Kelly Mayer in the 3000 steeplechase. Instebo was eighth in 11:47.84 and Mayer took ninth in 11:59.07.
“I’m proud of the effort these 19 athletes put forth,” said SBCC coach Scott Fickerson. “We equaled our highest number of qualifiers to the So Cal Championships with six.”
