Davis 8th in shot put, Bailey 9th in 1500 at State Meet

SBCC’s Zoe Davis took eighth in the women’s shot put at the 59th California State Championships on Saturday with a throw of 39-4 1/2 inches at Cerritos College in Norwalk. It was the third-best mark in school history for the freshman, who holds the school record at 39-9 3/4.

In the men’s 1500, Matt Bailey was ninth in a time of 3:57.68. Bailey was running with an injury he suffered several weeks ago.

Cecilia Instebo had to drop out of the women’s 3000 steeplechase after five laps due to an injury.

“It’s a great accomplishment for these three athletes to make the State Meet, particularly because they had to qualify from the South,” said coach Scott Fickerson.
