In girls relays, the Royals 4x100 team of Nnoli, Allie Jones, Delaney Werner and Sophia Cavaness ran a season best 48.70 to qualify as the eighth team. The 4x400 team won its heat in 3:56 to move on to the finals. The team consisted of Schroeder, Nnoli, Werner and Olivia Jones.

San Marcos boys moving on to the finals are Tyson Miller in the 400 (heat winner in 50.00) and Adam Manchester in the pole vault (a PR of 14-0).  Matt Hempy just missed qualifying in the 100 with a personal best of 11.00.

"I'm so proud of these athletes and all that competed today," San Marcos coach Marilyn Hantgin said. "This is the first year we have been in Division 2 in a long time and I thought we competed really well. Lots and lots of qualifiers."

Dos Pueblos qualified five athletes for next week's finals at Cerritos.

Freshman Josie Morales cleared 5-4 in the girls high jump and didn't miss a jump all day. Boys high jumpers Spencer Kemmerer and Chris Jones both cleared 6-2 to advance. On the track, Christina Rice and Hunter Clark qualified for the finals in the 3200.

Clark ran 9:25 to win the first heat of the boys 3200. He took over with two laps to go and didn't look back. His time was second overall behind Ventura's Garrett Reynolds (9:18.98), whom he beat at the Channel League finals.

Rice took the lead early and won her 3200 heat in 10:48.

Megan Robinson high jumped a personal best 5-2 but missed advancing to finals by one spot. She will be the first alternate if another jumper cannot compete.

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!
