Chris Aichinger Sets SBCC Pole Vault Record

Chris Aichinger broke the SBCC school record in the pole vault on Friday and then raised the bar a little higher in the WSC Coastal men’s track and field meet at Cuesta College.

The freshman from Santa Ynez High broke George Bowman’s 2001 record of 4.64 meters with a 4.65 clearance. He had the bar raised to 4.83 meters (15-10 1/8) and cleared that on his second attempt to win the pole vault competition and set a new school record.
Aichinger failed to clear 4.88 meters. His 4.83 clearance is No. 7 in the state this year.

Edward Jones won the shot put with a 13.65 heave and was second in the discus (41.33m). Cameron Shinn was second in the triple jump in a season-best 13.47m and fourth in the long jump at 6.27m.

The Vaqueros placed fifth in the six-team competition with 60 points. Moorpark won with 168 points and West L.A. was second with 136.

Alana Ochoa recorded two firsts and two seconds in the throws in the WSC Coastal women’s track and field meet.

Ochoa, a freshman from San Marcos High, heaved the hammer 38.93 meters (127 feet, 8¾ inches) to beat Alyssa Carrillo of Ventura by 2.71 meters. She threw the discus 38.92 meters, which was 5.75m better than the runner-up, Taylor Nevitt of Hancock (33.17).

Ochoa took second in the javelin (30.28m) and shot put (10.71). She accounted for 36 of her team’s 49 points.

West L.A. won the six-team meet with 187 points and Moorpark was second at 121. The Vaqueros were fifth with 49.

Tiffany Costello was second in the 1500 in a PR 4:49.96. Yuliana Garibay notched personal bests in the 1500 (6th, 5:08.28) and 3000 (7 th, 11:33.87). Carolin Bothe had a 1-second PR in the 400 (1:02.83) and a PR in the 200 (28.01).

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!
