After a long struggle of defeat against Contrera’s boys for several years, Varsity boys took the glory of defeating them and now continue being undefeated. Their final score was 66-52. However, the girls lost against the lady Cobra’s. It was their first defeat after three years of being undefeated league champions and their final score was 66-52, with the lady Cobra’s winning. Currently the boys score is 3-0, while the ladies score is 2-1.
“That’s one school down now three more to go,” said Carlos Yalibat, distance runner. “We don’t stop here, we will push it till the end.”
The varsity boys started off with a rough start since the Cobra’s started to take the points from the first few events but the Sheiks began to make up those points back. Carlos won the 800 meter run, 1600 meter and the 3200 meter runs, which added up his 15 points for the team. Edwin Garcia, sprinter, won both relays of 100 meter dash and 200 meter dash and accumulated 10 points. This helped the team out since these were one of the few tough events out there.
Every point counts and the runners aren’t the only ones to rely on for winning. The varsity shot put team accumulated a total of six extra points for the team, helping the team for a better score. Also, the long jump, high jump, triple jump played a major role for the team as they added 18 points.
