With six individual wins, a relay victory and a bunch of other top-10 finishes, the Davis High boys and girls track and field teams combined to take first place at the Folsom Depth Charge Invitational on Saturday.
The Blue Devils saw Ellie Eaton and Laney Teaford both run Sac Joaquin Section-leading marks in winning their events, as Eaton posted a 57:39 in the 400 meters and Teaford topped the 800 field with her 2:17.95. The pair also teamed up with Han-ah Sumner and Liz Lee to cross first in the 4×400 relay in 4:04.23.
Additional DHS victories came from Jeanne-Marie McPherson (5:40 in the girls’ 1,600), Paul Mohr (4:32.37 in the boys’ 1,600), Caitlin Mazzoleni (high jump, 5-0) and Kunwoo Hong (triple jump, 41-0).
Devil sophomore Blake Croft showed his strength in the 800, placing second in 1:58.45, the second-best time in the section this spring. Along with Croft, five other locals were runners-up in their events, paced by Kyle Clancy, who filled up the Davis stat sheet with top-10 finishes in four different events.
Clancy ran second in the 110 hurdles (16:29), took third in the high jump (6-0), pole vaulted 11-0 to take seventh place and sprinted to eighth in the 100-meter dash in 11.89.
Other Blue Devil second-place finishes came from Rose Stephens (16:63 in the 100 hurdles), Sophie Meads (2:23.54 in the 800), Alex McIntyre (22.88 in the 200) and Courtney Meyer (9-06 in the pole vault).
Zoe Hunt-Murray (high jump), Spencer LaHaye (pole vault), Guilia McIsaac (3,200) and Jasper Laca (1,600) rounded out DHS’ medal-stand performances as each took third in their event.
The Devils return home on Wednesday for the annual Battle for the Spade against Woodland High. Pioneer will be in on the festivities, which begin at 3:30 p.m. at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.
