Warrior track team ready for Redwood

14 girls, 15 boys head to Redwood Empire Saturday 

The Del Norte track and field program is taking a full load of athletes to Santa Rosa on Saturday for the North Coast Section Redwood Empire meet. The Warriors will have 14 girls and 15 boys competing in 53 events at the meet.

“That is a lot compared to previous years,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “We are just getting bigger and bigger.”

Del Norte could have had another runner this weekend but Jesus Lara, who qualified for the meet in the 800 meter run, had to withdraw due to a nagging knee injury.

The Redwood Empire meet pits the top athletes from Humboldt-Del Norte counties against those from the Marin-Sonoma-Mendocino league. The meet is a precursor to the North Coast Section Meet of Champions trials that will be held on Friday, May 30. The top seven finishers in the Redwood Empire will qualify for the meet at the University of California-Berkeley.

Moving on to the NCS Meet of Champions will be difficult, and Escobar thinks a handful of Del Norte qualifiers have a serious chance.

For the boys, Escobar believes that Chad Bell has a good opportunity to move on in the long jump, and based on performance could move on in the high jump and triple jump as well. He also expects Jackson Evans, who won the HDN  pole vaulting title, to move on in the pole vault. Victor De los Santos also could have a chance of qualifying in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles, according to Escobar.

For the girls, Escobar believes that Kayla Costello is in a good position to move on in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles. Escobar also predicted that Kaitlyn Clemann in the high jump and the 4x100 meter relay team of Rachel Rowe, Maddie Critz, Maddison Smedley and Costello both have a chance to qualify for Berkeley.

The rest of the Warriors will just be focused on improving their best marks of the season in Santa Rosa.

“The other kids are there for a reward, to hopefully improve on time and maybe it will inspire them to come back,” Escobar said. “We don’t have big expectations on them, but hopefully they will be pleased with their results.”
