4 SBCC Women’s Track and Field Athletes Qualify For Southern California Finals

Marie Kimumba took fourth in the 400 meters on Saturday and Christy Chavira was fifth in the 1500 in the Southern Cal Track & Field Prelims at San Diego Mesa College.

Kimumba ran a personal-best 57.03 and moved closer to the No. 2 spot on the Vaqueros’ all-time list. She also placed sixth in the 200 in 24.90, which is second on the Vaquero Top-10 chart and just .08 off the school record.

Chavira, a freshman from Righetti High, had another big drop with a PR of 4:52.35 in the 1500.

Alana Ochoa was ninth in the shot put (11.54m). She’ll compete in the discus next week, based on her winning performance in the WSC Championships.

Maria-Aime Cochet, a freshman from Rennes, France, took 10th in the hammer with a personal-best 42.16 meters (138 3¾), which lands her No. 3 on the all-time chart. She previously qualified to throw the discus at the Southern Cal Finals.

San Diego Mesa will host the Southern Cal Championships on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
