On a cold and windy Friday night at the Bronco Roundup Distance Carnival in Fair Oaks, Nevada Union’s Garrett Migliozzi showed he is one of the top distance runners in the region.
After leading the boys 1,600-meter race early, Migliozzi fell behind Chris Goode of Jesuit and Paul Zeiss of Granite Bay. With just a 100 meters left in the race, Migliozzi made his move. The junior passed both Goode and Zeiss in the final stretch to claim the top spot in the 1,600 with a time of 4 minutes, 24.97 seconds, a personal best for Migliozzi.
Nevada Union’s David French also placed in the top 10 in the 1,600, placing eighth with a time of 4:39.22.
In the 800, Migliozzi placed fourth with a time of 2:02.64, and French, a senior, was seventh with a time of 2:04.33.
On the girls side, freshman Nora Pizzella had a strong showing in the 3,200 with an eighth-place finish in 12:13.99. Miranda Myers of St. Francis was first in the 3,200 with a time of 11:24.32.
In the girls 800, Nevada Union’s Marina McKenzie placed in the top-10 with a ninth-place finish in 2:29.86, Chloe Reindl finished 16th, and Delaney Smith placed 35th.
In the 4-by-1,600 relay, Nevada Union’s Reindl, Kelly Rutherford, Joy Castro-Wehr and Maddie Campbell placed fifth.
In the distance medley, the team of Maddie Campbell, McKenzie, Castro-Wehr and Pizzella took seventh for the Miners.
In freshmen/sophomore action, NU’s 4-by-1,600 team of Max Arnds, Aaron Van Doren, Josh Harris and Evan DesJardins placed fourth.
Brawley 8, Nevada Union 1
The Miners got off to a slow start in the Lions Tournament Monday, losing to Brawley by seven runs.
Nevada Union fell behind early when a Brawley batter reached on an error in the first inning, another was hit by a pitch, two walks were issued, and the Miners paid for it when a double put Brawley up 3-0 after one.
NU’s Nick Eccarius took the loss on the mound after 3 2/3 innings of work in which five runs scored. Beau Des Pois and Garrett O’Callaghan combined to pitch the remainder of the game.
From the plate, Matt Paruszkiewicz was a bright spot for NU with two hits, including a double. The lone NU RBI came off the bat of Dylan Conger who plated NU’s only run with a base knock.
The Miners take the diamond again today when they face El Diamante as the Lions Tournament continues.
NU places third at Atwater Invitational
The Miners finished in a tie for second place with San Benito when play concluded Monday at the Atwater Invitational, but due to a tiebreaker, NU took home third.
Logan Lowe led the Miners, finishing in a tie for first place individually, shooting an even-par 72.
Dominic Stepanian was second for NU with a 78, Derek Frank shot an 80, and Andrew Puleo rounded things out with an 83.
The Miners lost the team tiebreaker because San Benito’s fifth player scored better than NU’s fifth golfer.
