Boys track loses meet but sweeps Poway in 3,200-meter at home

By Joe Naiman

Ramona High School’s boys track and field team swept the scoring positions in the 3,200-meter race in the Bulldogs’ home meet against Poway High School.

Junior Tristan Stidham had a time of 10:05.54, senior Donny McKay completed the race in 10:11.54, and senior Graham Gantzer placed third at 10:15.18 in the May 2 race.

“That was nice,” Coach Sherri Edwards said of sweeping the race.

The event counted for one-quarter of Ramona’s total points in the Bulldogs’ 100-36 loss to the Titans.

“Not the way I wanted to end the season in terms of dual meets,” Edwards said. “The boys Poway team is a really strong team.”

Ramona won two of the other 15 events.

Senior Preston Johnson had a shot put throw of 47 feet 6 inches while senior Connor Guasti’s triple jump measured 29 feet 5 1/2 inches.

Ramona took first and second in the shot put. Sophomore Daniel Van Tol set a personal record with a throw of 43 feet 4-1/2 inches.

Guasti also placed second in the long jump with a distance of 20’5”, and his high jump distance of 5’4” shared second place with teammate Colton Jansen, who was Ramona’s only freshman to earn a varsity point in the season’s final dual meet.

Junior Forrest Riley earned Ramona’s other second-place points with a time of 2:02.71 in the 800-meter race.

Senior Josh Valino placed third in the discus throw with a distance of 121’9”.

Cory Thomas, a junior, had a third-place time of 4:41.56 in the 1,600-meter event.

Junior Cesar Corona’s time of 53.50 seconds gave him third place in the 400-meter run while Nathan Cherek completed the 200-yard dash in 24.48 seconds to take third.

Palomar League finals will take place Friday afternoon at Poway High School.
