Night one is in the books of the Deer Valley District Track and Field Championships and your Mountain Lions got out to a fantastic start. The Lions dominated in the field events. Starting in the girls high jump, the Olivia’s stole the show – Magby taking gold and Hansen Silver. Kailee Sullivan and Kylie McBride placed 2nd and 3rd in the long jump and in the girls discus, Jasmine Gonzales took 1st and freshman Kai Bui placed 3rd. In the boys Javelin, Tim Pettit placed 2nd and Conner Wells 3rd.
On the track, Senior Reier Gilbertson ran his personal best mile time of 4:22. Emily Simon took 2nd place in the 3200 meters and a host of athletes have positioned themselves nicely for the finals this coming Wednesday. After night one the girls are in first and in a great position to claim the title of District Champions. Come see if they can do in on Wednesday night at Deer Valley!
Great job to all the athletes who have put in so much effort this season. Go Ridge Track and Field!
