RIVALRY NO MORE, KING GETS WHAT IT NEEDS AT CORONA
In the second to last Big 8 meet of the season and one week after the Wolves lost to Roosevelt – the only loss on the season thus far – King Track and Field traveled to Corona to try and get back to their winning ways and secure the “runner-up” spot in the league behind the presumptive champions Roosevelt.
The match up between the King and Corona was once a pretty good rivalry, but on Thursday, King was unchallenged except in a few events. “We got done what we needed to do” head coach John Corona said, following the victory both his boys and girls teams victories over the Panthers.
“ We were able to rest some kids” Coach Corona continued, “and give others a chance to be on the varsity stage and we got the win.”
Two of those kids that moved up to varsity were Dathan Chann and Malachi Cabanilla who ran two very good distance doubles nearly matching or bettering their personal bests in the 1600 and 3200. Cabanilla would snag is first victory at the varsity level with a solid 10:31 effort in the the 3200. Robert Barraza had a PR in the 400 meters at 52.45. Reyte Rash rarely runs the 200, opting for the hurdles instead, but used a lighter fare of competition to dash along for half a lap and nearly ran himself into King’s all time list with a 22.80. Isac Meza, Brandon Avila and Elisha Hall all PR’d in the long jump.
On the girls’ side it was an equally good day despite the absent of pressure that usually produces results. Sheredyn Pfeiffer continued her strong sophomore campaign with a PR in the 100, and Sarah Ann Frank followed Rash’s cue and ran the 100 which is usually littered with hurdles. Unencumbered, Frank ran to a 12.91 clocking. She did the same in the 200 and finished behind Kayla Seldon who ran a lifetime best of 25.94 for the half-lap race. All told in that 200 meter race, over JV and Varsity heats, the King dashers notched 8 lifetime best times! Ashley Chruszcz, Grace and Jade Roberts, Brooklyn Black, Kennedy Hackbarth, Morgan Sjoerdsma and Jullian Harb all went home faster than ever. Kela Mavhera had a season best time in the 800 to win, while Joan Green ran a lifetime PR of 2:36. Talyn Henry PR’d in the long jump.
"Rivalry" may not be the best term to use when describing the competition between Corona and King anymore. But that's ok. With the final dual of 2018 on the near horizon, getting the win over Corona, -- especially after dropping a big one to Roosevelt -- was just what King needed. Rivalry or not, they'll take the W.
