Last Chance Meet Produces for Panthers
Apr 25, 2017
With a rained out track event meet a few weeks ago, the Hartnell College track & field team took advantage of the Bob Rush Last Chance Meet at College of San Mateo last Thursday. Several regional qualifying marks and improvements give the Panthers much needed momentum heading into the Coast Conference Championship scheduled for Wednesday at Hartnell College and Saturday at Monterey Peninsula College.For the second time this season Eduardo Orozco dipped under the four minute barrier in the 1500 meter run to lead an additional seven Panthers to season bests. Orozco won the event in 3:59.72. He towed Andrew Martinez (4:00.92) and Jorge Sanchez (4:01.51) to personal bests. Sergio Coronel was not too far behind in 4:04.29 to lead a second group of Patrick Olson (4:07.49), Adam Alnazer (4:07.81), and Mario Perez, Jr. (4:08.15). Olson and Coronel had the two fastest 800 meter times of the group with 2:00.65 and 2:00.88. Thomas Salao earned a regional provisional qualifying mark in the javelin with his lifetime best 160-6.
