Ramona High’s Wyatt Scott wins 300-meter hurdles at Grizzly Invite

By Joe Naiman

Ramona High School sophomore Wyatt Scott held off junior and senior competitors at the Grizzly Invite meet April 20 at Mission Hills High School to win the 300-meter hurdles race.

Scott had a time of 42.06 seconds.

“I’m very pleased with the way he’s running,” said head coach Sherri Edwards.

Scott was the only Bulldog boy who placed at the Grizzly Invite, although Edwards took a limited squad.

The Bulldogs also competed in an April 18 Valley League dual meet at home against Oceanside, although the Pirates won that meet by a 72-63 score. Oceanside swept the scoring positions in both the long jump and the triple jump to earn those 18 points and had the only two high jumpers who cleared their initial distance to add another 8 points.

“That killed us,” Edwards said. “I thought maybe we could offset it with our distance runners, but it was too much.”

Ramona swept the 800-meter race with Forrest Riley winning in 2:06.06, Tristan Stidham posting a time of 2:06.42, and Cesar Corona finishing in 2:06.76.

“That was exciting to get those 9 points in that event,” Edwards said.

Riley also won the 1,600-meter race with a time of 4:48.80 while Stidham was second at 4:50.94. Stidham took first place in the 3,200-meter run at 10:47.65 with Riley finishing second at 10:48.11.

The Bulldogs also swept the discus points with Paul Mehaffie achieving a distance of 132’4”, Daniel Van Tol hurling the discus 118’5”, and Victor Moreno’s best shot landing 100’2” beyond the line. Van Tol won the shot put with a throw of 43’1-1/2” while Michael Hastings was second at 42’5”.

“That was some nice points,” Edwards said. “I was really pleased how the throws went.”

Ramona added a field events point when Darrell Millen cleared 10’ to finish third in the pole vault.

Although Oceanside won the 4×100 relay, Ramona closed the meet with a victory in the 4×400 relay. Corona, Austin Minnocci, Javier Dominguez, and Dustin Hager posted a time of 3:38.16.

Dominguez placed second in the 100-meter dash at 11.43 seconds and in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.12 seconds. Minnocci was second in the 400-meter race with a performance of 52.94 seconds.

Scott took second in both hurdles races against Oceanside with times of 16.43 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles and 42.96 seconds in the 300-meter hurdles. Hager was third in both races with times of 16.63 and 43.40 seconds.

The Bulldogs’ next Valley League dual meet is Thursday at Del Norte High School, which will also be the site of Saturday’s Dick Wilkins Frosh-Soph Invite meet. Some of Ramona’s older athletes will spend Friday night at the Escondido Invitational.
