MEN'S TRACK & FIELD: BATTLE IN THE RAIN

The Hornets first meet of the season took place at Bakersfield College last Friday, and it was a challenge as rainfall plagued the entire meet.

Despite the bad conditions, some good performances were turned in.

Sophomore Francisco Padilla won the Shot Put with a throw of 13.06m (42ft, 10in). He followed that perfromance up by winning the discus (124'9" 38.03 meters).

Freshman Tommy Bui took 5th out of 20 competitors in the 200m, running 23.55 sec.

Freshmen Marquis Rogers and Raymond Gomez-Garcia opened the season in the 400m with times of 53.22 and 53.63 seconds respectively.

Freshman Ryan Lenning, throwing the Javelin for the very first time, placed third with a throw of 39.01m (128ft).

Up Next: The Hornets have a bye this week and will be back in action on February 24 in an Orange Empire Conference meet against Santa Ana and Orange Coast College.
