Bridgeport League Meet Track and Field Report
On Thursday, March 24, Manson ventured to Bridgeport for their opening track meet of the season. The weather was wet, cold, windy, and generally miserable and did not make for the best of conditions to perform to one's best.
The boys placed 2nd overall and the girls placed 4th.
We had several individual winners:
1. Casey Sorensen in the discus.
2. Marcus Vanderholm in the 800 and 3200.
3. Jesse Russell in the 300 meter hurdles.
Also notching top 3 finishes:
1. Casey Sorensen in the shot put.
2. Marcus Vanderholm in the 1600.
3. Paul Toolson in the 800.
4. Ty Harding in the 100 and 200.
5. Our 4 x 100 relay team of Paul, Marcus, Casey, and Ty placed 3rd.

9. Maria Chavolla in the 1600.
10. Cheyanne McFadden in the 3200.
11. Our 4x100 relay team of Stephanie Quiroz, Ofelia, Eli Lleyva, and Itzel placed 3rd
12. Our 4x200 relay team of Stephanie, Ofelia, Adriana Guzman, and Itzel placed 3rd
We had many athletes who had never competed before so it was great for them to get experience and establish marks on which they will try to improve.
The team appreciates the support of family and friends who came out and braved the elements to support the team. A special kudos, to Dale England who loaned us his canopy to help shelter us during the meet as well.
We next compete on Saturday in the Ephrata "Ray Cross" Invitational. It is one of our bigger meets of the year as 37 teams are scheduled to compete. Here's hoping for sunnier and warmer conditions.
