Vintage High School’s track and field team sent athletes to two separate meets over the weekend.

Mackenzie Mills headed south to the Arcadia Invitational, the nation’s top high school track and field meet. Mills posted a season-best time of 11:03 in the 3,200 meters, which now ranks her first in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section.

Many others headed to the 20-team Santa Rosa Invitational, where numerous top-10 places were earned.

Leading the way were double-event winners Brandon Beck (100 in 10.96 and 200 in 22.23) and Angelique Lopez (100 in 12.70 and 200 in 26.48). Also earning top-10 honors were Kate Anderson (sixth, JV 400), Cristina Flavin (fourth, JV 3,200), Katie Gavitte (fifth, JV 800), Julia Grim (sixth, high jump; ninth, long jump; fourth, 100), Connor Hudak (second, JV 200), Jack Kobylka (fifth, 1,600), Marissa Murphy (ninth, 100; seventh, long jump), Braeden Perry (fourth, JV shot put), Dylan Ray (fifth, JV 200), Andrew Scott (seventh, 800; 10th, 1,600) and Ellen Shindle (ninth, JV 800).

Meanwhile, the Crushers went into a Monticello Empire League dual meet against Armijo short-handed due to other school trips and athletes being rested for a big weekend of meets, but still competed very well despite losing each of the divisions.
