Her time on Saturday was the third fastest of the day. Jacquelyn Hill of Etiwanda ran 2:12 to win the Division 1 title and Malina Vago of Marymount  clocked 2:13.05 to win Division 3.

Nnoli recorded a personal best of 47-02.25 to win the Division 2 triple jump title and qualified for the Masters.

Kemmerer jumped 6-6.25 in the high jump to win the Division 2 title, set a Dos Pueblos record and advanced to the Masters Meet. Also advancing is Beau Allen of San Marcos, who finished third at 6-4.

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!
