Several Devils in top 20 at state track and field meet

CLOVIS — It wasn’t the best day for most of the 10 Davis High athletes who competed in the CIF state meet over the weekend, but some of that was just because the Blue Devil bar was set so high after amazing performances at the Sac-Joaquin Section and Masters events.

No DHS athletes advanced out of Friday’s preliminaries at Buchanan High, but that still put most of the Devils in the top 20 in their event in all of California.

“We didn’t quite accomplish what we wanted to at this meet as a group,” admitted Davis coach Spencer Elliott, “but it was a fabulous season and the coaches are all extremely proud of every one of the athletes.”

Junior Nate Harper had the highest finish of any Blue Devil, taking 15th in the pole vault by clearing 14-09. The other DHS highlights included 11th-grader Jeanne-Marie McPherson finishing eighth in her heat of the 800 (19th overall) in 2:17.11 and a high jump of 5-03 by junior Caitlin Mazzoleni, also good for 19th.

Freshman Sofia Castiglioni got her first taste of the state-meet competition level and finished a respectable 17th in the 1,600 (5:04.44).

“Jeanne-Marie ran a really good 800, Caitlin equaled her PR and Nate Harper did a good job clearing some good heights,” Elliott said.”I know Sofia wanted to break five minutes, but I thought she raced well.”

Additional marks came from Devil Kyle Clancy, who was coming off of SJS Masters titles in both the long jump and high jump. The junior took 17th with a long jump of 21-05.5.

Freshman Alyssa Lengtat, Davis’ record-holder in the triple jump, posted a distance of 36-05.75 Friday, not quite matching her school benchmark but still taking 19th.

Another Blue Devil record-holder, junior Blake Croft — who set the mark with a 1:52.54 in the 800 last week — took eighth in his heat and 23rd overall at the state meet (1:58.36).

The most disappointing outing was by the DHS 4×400 relay squad, which didn’t finish after botching a hand-off.

Still, with no seniors among the Devil state-meet qualifiers — and Davis coming off of a boys section title and a girls third-place finish — the future is bright.

“We’ll come back next year and see if we can accomplish all that we accomplished this year and hopefully do some more damage at the state meet,” Elliott said.
