SBCC’s Lake, Krivulka excel at Orange Coast Classic

SBCC’s Tristan Lake continued his dream season by winning the 400 hurdles in record fashion on Thursday at the Orange Coast Classic track and field meet in Costa Mesa.

Lake, a freshman from San Marcos High, set a meet record with his 53.70 clocking in a meet that featured 12 Community Colleges and several universities. It was the second-fastest time in SBCC history (missing the all-time mark by 0.31 seconds) and the third-fastest in the state this year.

Lake has won four times this season and finished second in the Easter Relays to a runner from a four-year school.

Kaytee Krivulka, a freshman from Santa Ynez High, won the women’s hammer and set a school record with a heave of 40.68 meters. She broke Emily McPhetridge’s 2005 record by more than 3½ feet with her toss of 133 feet, 5½ inches.

Zoe Davis was first in the shot put at 11.14 meters (36-6½). Kelly Mayer was third in the Steeplechase in 12:04.90. That earned her the fourth slot on the all-time school chart. Kate Earle was fourth in the 100 hurdles (15.86) while Sara Jungersten was fourth in the 200 (26.54).

The 4×100 relay team of Earle, Emily Walker, Kalina Rock and Jungersten was fifth in 49.93. That’s the No. 6 time in SBCC history.

Cody Uhrig placed third in the men’s 400 (49.26) and fourth in the 200 (22.42). Scott Santella was fourth in the high jump (1.78m) and Geoff Brown posted a pair of fourths in the long jump (6.40m) and triple jump (12.58).

The Vaqueros will take the next two weeks off to train for the WSC Prelims, which will take place on Friday, April 20 at SBCC’s La Playa Stadium.
