GILROY — Watsonville High athletes shattered more records on Friday in the Monterey Bay League track and field Finals at Gilroy High School.
Brianna Cueva once again broke her own record in the shot put by launching it 41-1. Amazingly enough she said she still believes that she can improve.
“I know that I can go farther,” she said at the meets conclusion. “I’m not holding back or anything like that. I just need to work on bringing my legs more.”
Cueva shattered the school record earlier this season and she continues to break her own record over and over again.
The two-sport athlete will attend CSU Northridge and continue track and field.
But first things first, finishing this season and going to CCS.
“Everyone expects me to be good,” said Cueva. “It gets to me some times, but I just don’t want to let people down so I’m working hard.”
Another Wildcat who has worked hard has been Kasem Green. All that hard work paid off when Green took off and flew through the air in the triple jump for a record breaking 44-3.5.
“I was nervous before my jump actually,” said Green. “I took off and I felt good. I thought I hit the 43s, but I didn’t think I had hit that. After I saw the number I was happy, extatic actually.”
Earlier in the season Green suffered a injury that hampered his production, but with a full bill of health he has made a complete turn around and is paving his way to CCS.
“I think I can beat that,” said Green. “I’m just trying to improve every time.”
Graham Foster took home first place for the Catz. His time of 52.07 in the 400-meters was just enough to squeeze out a win.
“You know it’s really interesting,” said Foster. “I never really had competition, but now that I do it’s pushing me and making me so much better.”
He’ll join Raymond Silver, Abraham Ortiz, Justin Carrancho, Sonya Cervantes, Melissa Magana, Crystal Ramirez and Lizette Garcia in next weeks MBL Master Meet.
Silver was dominant again in the high jump and long jump. He cleared 6-2 in the high and leaped 20-5 in the long.
Ortiz and Carancho finished second and third respectively in the 800-meters with just two seconds separating them.
Sonya Cervantes set a new school record in the 300-meter hurdles with her time of 47.62. She also qualified for Friday’s meet in the 100-meter hurdles by coming in third. Cervantes also placed second in the long jump.
Pajaro Valley’s Dyani Jacob came in second in the triple jump just behind Magana. Both will compete at Friday’s meet.
Ramiez and Garcia both qualified in the 1600-meters, and Garcia qualified in the 800-meters.
Pajaro Valley Grizzly Alyssa River finished third in the shot put and second, behind Cueva, in the Discus.
Overall, the Watsonville girls team placed second falling to Christopher.
The boys team finished second as well. Seaside took first place.
