PREP TRACK AND FIELD: Redskins split with Blazers

GOSHEN — Despite a bit of a chill to the early spring air, the Goshen High School track and field teams were able to finally get the 2013 season under way on Saturday with a home nonconference meet against Elkhart Central.

It was a mixed bag of team results for the Redskins, with the boys topping the Blue Blazers, 79.5-52.5 and the girls falling, 78-54.

Goshen assistant coach Mike Wynn said it was a typical first meet for the Redskins.

“There were some good performances, and some things to work on,” Wynne said.

On the boys side, the Redskins got individual event victories from Reid Zimmerman in the 800-meter run (2:08.12); Ricardo Castillo in the 1,600-meter run (4:49.44); and Gerardo Abad in the 3,200-meter run (10:41.00) for a sweep of the distance events.

The Redskins also swept the hurdle events, with Quinten Holley taking the 110 (17.25) and Cristian Barron winning the 300 (42.89).

The Redskins’ team of Jamie Graves,Cameron Kline, Barron and Abraham Medellin won the 4-by-100 relay (45.37). Josh Bustos took the pole vault (12-0) and swept the throws, with Miguel Coronado winning the shot put (44-0) and Mitchell Watts winning the discus (127-10).

On the girls side, the Redskins got wins from Adrienne Henke in the 800-meter run (2:40.58); and from their team of Jessica Wynn, Marisela Salazar, Tricia Place and Henke in the 4-by-800-meter relay (10:50.69).

Maria Corbett took the high jump (4-8) and Place won the pole vault (8-0). The Redskin girls also swept the throws, with Tatyana Moore winning the shot put (33-8) amd Kristen Hanson won the discus (90-4).

Barron, one of the Redskins’ senior leaders, said he and his teammates were glad to finally get the first meet under their belts. It had originally been scheduled for Thursday, and then postponed first to Friday and then Saturday due to inclement weather.

“You always want to get out there for that first meet and see how you match up with other teams,” Barron said.

Barron was pleased with his 300-meter hurdle win, as well as with his part in the Redskins’ winning effort in the 4-by-100 relay.

But as a track veteran, he knows it’s a long season. And with 100-plus boys on the team in 2013, Barron is expected to be one of the athletes stepping up to show the underclassmen the way.

The Redskins are scheduled to return to action on Tuesday with a dual boys-girls meet at West Noble. First event is scheduled for 5 p.m.
