The Miners track and field squad will be sending David French, Garrett Migliozzi and Delaney Smith to the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Thursday and Friday at Elk Grove High School where they will have a chance to qualify for the CIF State Finals.

The three remaining members of NU’s team punched their ticket to the Masters last week with exceptional performances at the Section finals.

French earned his trip to the Masters as he won the Section championship in the boys 800 meter race with a time of 1-minute 53.71 seconds to beat out Paul Mohr of Davis by .99 seconds. Migliozzi set a personal record and finished second in the boys 1600 meter race with a time of 4:16.57. He led for three and a half laps. The time also broke the old record, but the new one now belongs to Trent Brendel of Granite Bay who finished in first just 2.2 seconds ahead of Migliozzi. Smith also qualified for Masters with her eighth place finish in the girl’s high jump with a leap of 5-feet 1-inch to clear the bar. First place went to Mahogany Stitt of Merced with a jump of 5-feet 5-inches.
