SBCC’s Davis shatters school mark in shot put

Zoe Davis had an outstanding performance on Friday as SBCC captured 10 events in the SLO Track Town Classic, hosted by Cuesta in San Luis Obispo.

Davis, a freshman from San Anselmo, Calif., shattered the SBCC women’s shot put record with a heave of 12.05 meters (39 feet, 6 1/2 inches). She improved on her throw from a week ago at Mt. SAC by more than 2½ feet. She also took second in the discus at 33.70 meters.

Davis broke Sandra Tyson’s shot put record of 39 feet, which was set 27 years ago in 1985.

“Zoe has been working hard all fall,” said coach Scott Fickerson. “I’m proud of her efforts and I’m looking forward to see how much further she can push this record.”
The Vaquero women won five events as did the men.

Kate Earle placed first in the 100m hurdles in 16.84 and ran the first leg on the victorious 4x100m relay (51.58) and the 4×200 relay (1:51.20). The 100 relay unit consisted of Earle, Katie Voss, Kalina Rock and Sara Jungersten while the 400 team was made up of Earle, Voss, Brooke Tavernetti and Jungersten.

Jungersten was first in the 100 at 13.20. In the discus, Kaytee Krivulka and Aubreyanna Thompson placed third (32.95m) and fourth (30.17).

“The women’s team really had a great day,” Fickerson said. “This is a great way to head into our first WSC meet to see how we stand up against the other teams in conference.”

Others competing in the meet were Cuesta, Moorpark, Hancock and some open athletes.

In the men’s meet, SBCC’s Cliff Lekas won the 100 in 11.49, Matthew Bailey took the 800 in 1:58.54 and Ben Garland topped the 3000 field in 8:56.66.

The Vaquero men also took first in the 4×100 and 4×200 relays. The 100 relay of Nicholas Smith, Cody Bidlow, Cody Uhrig and Clifford Lekas won in 43.39 while the 200 squad of Bidlow, Fred Maldonado, Tristan Lake and Uhrig prevailed in 1:31.73.

Chase Lee and Scott Santella were second and third in the javelin at 47.58m and 46.53m.

“The men had many fine performances — it was a lot of fun to watch,” said Fickerson. “What’s great is they were spread out across various events and many different athletes. This depth will help us as we head into the competitive portion of the season.”
