Both Liberty Ranch and Galt High Schools finished off their track season with lots of athletes competing at Section Finals at Weston Ranch High School. Those who qualified moved on to compete at the Masters meet in Davis.

Liberty Ranch new head coach Jackie Corriea, who herself holds a record at Galt High School, took on a lot of responsibility this year and, with her energy and drive, helped the Hawk track to move on to the higher meets.

“I am super proud of these athletes on qualifying from League Championships to Sections, to Masters,” said Corriea. “The further we go on into the track season, the harder it is to qualify and get to the State meet. We had a great turnout at Weston Ranch High School this past week. There was a lot of good competition, which actually pushed them to gain their personal best as well as qualify for the Masters.”

The Hawks’ Carson Trefz qualified for Masters in pole vault and high jump and Yousef Doab qualified for the 400m.

“These athletes have worked really hard to get to this point and I can’t wait to see how they perform.”

Galt High School head coach Neil Martin is proud of the Warriors for having one of the best track seasons in years.

“We have had an excellent year,” said Martin. “Six of our top athletes advanced to Masters, the most we have had qualify in years. Overall, we had an excellent season. We went four and one, only losing to El Dorado. We placed second in league finals with the men and third overall in division. The endless determination and hard work of our coaching staff and the dedication of our athletes led to one of the best years the Galt track team has seen. We are excited and looking forward to next season. Our goal next year is to beat this year’s accomplishments. With a coaching staff performing as excellent as they are, positive and dedicated athletes with the Warrior ‘nose-to-the-grindstone determination’, I sincerely believe next season will be even better. This team is chock full of full true grit. It has been an honor working with such outstanding athletes and coaches. I am very blessed to have been associated with them.”

The Warriors’ 4x100 team of Jeremy Eaton, Levi Humphries, Sebastian Madrigal and Kayson Jones qualified for Masters, along with Emily McCalla for shot put and Mason Jones for 300m hurdles.

Carson Trefz jumped 6’3” to qualify for Masters and was the highest qualifier. At the final day, he jumped 5’10”. “It was nice to finally get some competition,” said Trefz. “I’m grateful to have made it to the Masters. It was a nice way to end my high school career.”
