The Xavier Frosh/Soph team took first out of 20 schools at the Becky Matthews Frosh/Soph Invitational at Desert Vista on Friday, April 1.
Xavier had just one EVENT WINNER: Mackenzie Lopez in 300 hurdles with a PR of 47.80, less than 2 tenths of a second away from making the Xavier All-Time Top Ten list in this event.
However, with the top 8 places in each event adding to a team’s score, Xavier produced 21 SCORING MARKS. The 100m and 800m both saw Xavier putting 4 athletes into scoring positions.
There were 15 PERSONAL BESTS by Xavier athletes. Every PR is significant because it shows the athlete that she is improving, but here are some of the more notable improvements:
— Caroline Vietor: 16 sec. in the 1600
— Lis Montoya: over 13 ft in the Discus
— Emily Alaimo: over 7 ft in the Discus
— Bella Gomez: over 5 sec. in the 800
— Sophie Corona: over 6 sec. in the 1600
— Maya Ofori: 0.6 sec. in the 200
— Vivian Amoia: 2 sec. in the 400 AND 0.33 sec in the 100
— Mia Stoller: 0.3 in the 100
— Marley Stoller: 0.3 in the 200 to break the 27 sec. barrier for the 1st time
— Kaira Burrage: 0.8 sec in the 300 hurdles to break the 50 sec. barrier for the 1st time
