The Saddle-Up Invitational high school track meet took place this past weekend and not only set the tone for what is to be expected from some of the local standouts, but also gave some of unknowns an arena to showcase their talents as well.

Temecula Valley’s Danae Dyer won the 100m hurdles and tied Jasmyne Graham’s meet record with a time of 14.29. Dyer also won the 200m and teammate, Kim Evans, won the 400m. For the boys, Qwintin Workman took the 400m and 300m hurdles, but came up a bit short of the record, held by current USC standout and former Vista Murrieta track star, Michael Norman, in the quarter mile. Workman did take the hurdles standard from Rancho Verde’s Cameron Samuel, running 38.76. Also for the Golden Bears, Mafia Thurmond and Christian Gbla went 1-2 in the triple jump.

Other local event winners include Paloma Valley senior Winter Carreno, who won the high jump with a PR and school record 5-feet, 4-inches. Vista Murrieta had two boys who were double winners, senior Ryan Gonter in the shot put and discus throw and junior Edgar Villa in the 1,600 and 3,200. Also for the Broncos boys, senior Elijah Steward won the high jump, Chaparral junior Allie Gray set a meet record with a 12-foot clearance in the pole vault and Vista Murrieta senior Hailey Mo’unga won the shot put and was second to Redlands’ Jillian Sanchez in the discus throw.
