Ever since Coach Ken Bracy became the hurdle coach, those events have been a mainstay of the King Track Program. The successes of our barrier jumpers has been so great and so consistent that Coach Corona often jokingly says that Bracy’s charges are going to “Hurdle High.”
This past Saturday at the Paloma Valley Wildcat Relays, another chapter of success was written by the boys and girls shuttle hurdle teams. The King female quartet of Karla Lemus; Jasmine Jimenez; Larissa Cesena and Sarah Ann Frank not only finished in first place but set a new school record with a 1:07.58, edging a talented Rancho Verde team who came in at 1:07.98.
The boys team , though not setting any records, ran well and easily outdistanced the meet competition coming in first place. The team of Jarrod Favors. Reyte Rash, Josh Fisher and Dylan Lay turned in a time of 1:03.19.
