The Berkeley Stags boys’ track team dominated both track and field events to win a seven-team meet at Bonner Stadium and Gerald Moody Field on April 9.
Zeke Sepulaveda led the winners by taking the top spot in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.52 seconds and the 400-meter dash at 51.04 seconds.
Donnie Hutchinson won the triple long jump with a tri-leap of 40-10.50 feet. Jonathan Washington won the long jump with a leap of 19-09.50 feet.
The Stags swept the pole vault with Tyler Mills winning with an 11-06.00-foot vault.
Darryl Frazier won the high jump with a leap of 6-0 feet.
Berkeley’s 4x100 relay team edged Woodland with a time of 43.62 seconds.
“We’re training in preparation for a region championship,” said boys coach Gary Christensen. “We’re progressing well where we are winning a lot of the running and sprint events and are becoming competitive in the field events as well.”
Christensen said he hopes to see his jumpers in the long jump and triple long jump dominate at the county and region meets later this month.
“We are getting better as the season progresses,” he said. “The last two meets we have scored very well.”
On the girls’ side Jonnay Anthony was a two-time winner, taking first in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.82 seconds and the top spot in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 73.01 seconds.
Cane Bay won the girls meet with 212 points over Woodland’s 164 points. Berkeley finished third with 83 points.
