The College of the Redwoods track and field team showed well in its final tune-up before the Golden Valley Conference championships at the Chabot/Cal State East Bay Legacy Invitational at Chabot College in Hayward on Saturday.
“Every meet we just keep getting better and better so I’m really happy with where we are right now,” said CR head coach Reed Elmore. “Our progression has been steady and we’re in a great place heading into conference.”
The GVC championships will be held at Shasta College on Saturday, with the top athletes advancing to the NorCal regional championships the following week.
CR freshman Kevin McTague continued his upward trend in the 3,000-meter steeplechase on Saturday, setting another personal record with a time of 9 minutes, 52 seconds, which moves him to third in NorCals and first in the GVC.
CR’s Artis Jones set a new personal record in the 200m, winning his heat with a time of 22.26 seconds, and also set a PR in the 100m (11.17).
In the relays, the Corsairs moved to first in the GVC in the 4x400m relay as Artis Jones, Riccardo Cicciarella, Nick Moran and Stefvon Ellington had their best race of the season, while the group also had a season-best in the 4x100m.
“The relay team is looking really strong and we’re expecting to do big things,” Elmore said.
Also having a strong day for the Corsairs was Gabe Best, who won his heat in the 1,500m and set a 6-second PR with a time of 4:26.
For the women, CR’s Elizabeth Duncan set two personal records in the 1,500m (5:15) and 800m (2:35), while Chaunice Bodkin set a two-foot PR in the shot put with a distance of 32 feet.
“We’re steadily just moving up the list as we get close to conference,” Elmore said. “Which is exactly what you want to do. You want everyone to be competing at their best at the end of the season.”
