Track and field has another month until official practices start, yet some athletes have already begun to attend meets and races. The most recent meets were the Indoor State Qualifier Meet at UC Davis on Jan. 7 and the Indoor State Qualifier Meet at UC Berkeley on Jan. 14. Qualifying for specific times in either of these meets would allow athletes to advance to the California Indoor State Meet Invitational at California State University, Fresno, on Jan. 28. “There’s athletes from all over California so it’s going to be pretty tough qualifying for the state invitational,” long distance runner Matthew Young said.
At the UC Davis Meet, only pole vaulters Liam Sheridan and Kyle O’Hollaren competed from Washington. Sheridan tied his personal best of 11 feet and 6 inches. Unfortunately, O’Hollaren failed on all three attempts. At the UC Berkeley meet, more Washington athletes competed. Stephen Cheung and Da’rell Calvin competed in the 55m dash and the 55m hurdles. Neither qualified for either event. “I am disappointed. I missed the qualifying time by 0.16 seconds because I hit the first hurdle,” Cheung said. On a more positive note, Jack Champion qualified for the long jump. He jumped 43 feet and 8 inches. Long distance runner Nolan Peterson ran the mile and two mile. He qualified for the two mile but not for the mile.  “I wish the best to Jack and Nolan at the state meet as well as to our team for this coming season!”Sprinter Tejawsi Thota said.
