Jennifer Nnoli Comes .01 Seconds Short of Lifting San Marcos to Victory

Jennifer Nnoli blazed around the Ventura track on the anchor leg of the 4x400 relay, but her 55.50 effort came .01 of second short, and San Marcos suffered a 69.5-66.5 loss to Ventura in a Channel League track & field meet on Thursday at Larrabee Stadium.

"We had an outstanding meet against a very talented Ventura team," San Marcos coach Marilyn Hantgin said. "Jenny made a heroic attempt to win the meet."

The relay times were 4:00.77 for Ventura and 4:00.78 for the Royals.

Nnoli won the 100 and 200 (12.30, 25.34) and anchored the 4x100 relay to victory (49.17). 

Allie Jones had a big day, winning the 100 hurdles (14.18), long jump (17-6.50) and high jump (5-0) and running on the 4x100 team. Erica Schroeder doubled in the 1600 (5:15.88) and 800 (2:16.34), and teammate Kaela Cleary ran a strong 800 race with a second-place time of 2:18.

Matt Hempy swept the sprints for the San Marcos boys, winning the 100 in 11.18 and 200 in 22.73. Brian Nnoli took first in the triple jump with a mark of 44-8.25. He also finished second in the high jump and third in the long jump. Josh Harrah was second in the shot put and discus.

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!
