Santa Barbara Boys Perform Well in Opening Meet at Pacifica

Santa Barbara High opened its track and field season at the inaugural Pacifica Invitational in Oxnard.

The Dons earned a couple of runner-up finishes in the opener. 

The 4x400 relay team of Benjamin Kreitzer, Colin Hurtado, Jacob Valezuela and AJ Reyes clocked 3:49.19 for second in their first race together and Moki Nacario was runner-up in the long jump at 20-7.

Reyes was third (55.87) and Kreitzer fourth (57.42) in the 400  and Hurtado took third (2:12.72) in the 800.

Valenzuela had a personal best 36-9 to score in fifth at triple jump; Nacario was sixth in the 200 (23.87) and Jacob Barrios (47.44) and Manny Flores (47.67) were third and fourth in the 300 hurdles.

"It was good to finally have a clear day and some good competition," coach Olivia Perdices said. "It was a really well-run efficient early-season meet. We had some guys step up and perform well, especially for so early in the year. We'll definitely learn and grow from this meet."

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!
