The Nevada Union track and field team had a good showing at the Sierra Foothill League Championships last week with many varsity runners and throwers placing well enough to move on to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I Championships set for Wednesday. Only those who placed in the top four in each event during the league finals earned a spot in the section championships.

On the boys team, Hayden Fay ran the 100 meter dash 11.44 seconds and will advance. Also advancing is the 4×100 relay team of Ryan Elkins, Daniel Carter, Colton Clouse and Fay, and the 4×400 team of Elkins, Carter, Clouse and Myles Montgomery. Dylan Moreno is also moving on to sections in the triple jump event.

On the girls side, Nadia Torkman is advancing in the 100 meter dash, Erika Wolf in the 800 meter run and Nora Pizzella is advancing in the 3200 meter run. Torkman is also moving on in the 100 hurdles and the long jump. The 4×400 relay team of Horwath, Torkman, Wolf and Pizzella is also headed to sections. Lilly Pruett is also moving on to sections in the pole vault event.

The entire Miners varsity track and field team competed well all season long and had many top-10 finishes in each meet. The JV Miners are a very talented and strong group, placing high in many events at league finals. Look for them to be a force next year as they move up to varsity.
