There were few surprises amongst the strong performers at the Woody Wilson Invitational track meet at UC Davis Friday, as the usual local names once again finished the day on the podium. Granite Bay sophomore distance phenom Brooke Holt won the 1,600-meter run in 5:05.65, while a number of her Granite Bay teammates also excelled. Justin Sutter won another long jump competition, leaping 22 feet, 10 inches at the Woody Wilson. Amy Feulner was strong in the throwing events, with a second-place finish in the shot put and a fourth-place result in the discus. Sophomore James Kinloch took second in the boys discus. Christine Zavesky finished fifth in the 800-meter run and David Hubbard took a seventh-place result in the 300-meter hurdles. Grizzly pole-vaulter Katie Zingheim finished tied for third, but it was Woodcreek’s Kayla Kamaka who shined in that event, finishing in a third-place tie with a vault of 11 feet, 6 inches. Oakmont speedster Jazmin Harper was once again a major story in the sprints, with a second-place run at 400 meters (57.14) and a ninth in the 200. Harper and her teammates also placed third in the 4 x 400 relay. Woodcreek had some solid finishes at UC Davis, as Hannah Hardy was seventh in the girls long jump, while Jordan Hardy finished ninth in the 300-meter hurdles and 10th in the 100-meter hurdles. Courtney Crosta was 13th in the 3,200-meter run and Stephanie Romo captured 13th in the 1,600. Roseville’s Jordan Magnusson ran to an eighth-place result at 200 meters, and his Tiger teammate Catherine Crisp was 15th at 3,200 meters. Stephanie Blumm of Roseville took fifth in the 300-meter hurdles and Hazel Richardson was 12th in the 800.
