Kyle Whitaker, Chris Aichinger and Edward Jones Each Win Events for SBCC

Kyle Whitaker, Chris Aichinger and Edward Jones won their events on Friday in the Antelope Valley Invitational men’s track and field meet in Lancaster.

Whitaker and Aichinger tied for first in the pole vault with season bests of 4.41 meters. Their clearance of 14 feet, 6 inches ties for No. 8 on SBCC’s all-time list.

Jones won the javelin in a season-best 44.51 meters (146 feet, ¼ inch). He was also fourth in the shot put and sixth in the discus.

The Vaqueros got three second-place finishes – Said Kamal Webster in the 400 (season-best 50.11), Alex Ramirez in the 1500 (season-best 4:06.40) and Evan Askar in the 3000 (season-best 9:16.43).

The Vaqueros recorded an impressive 32 season bests on the day.

Skylar Payovich had a season-long throw of 42.61 meters while taking fourth in the hammer. That’s the eighth-best mark in school history.

"It was good to get a full squad out competing hard and showing what they can do,” said coach Scott Fickerson. “It showed with many good results. I enjoyed watching the team perform today."

The Vaqueros return to action in the Westmont Collegiate Classic on Saturday, March 25 at 11 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!
