Brar guides CV to a pair of wins
Jasveen Brar placed second three times and third once during the Central Valley High School varsity girls track and field team's season-opening, Valley Oak League dual meet loss at Sierra.

Displeased with her performance, the senior increased her training and rebounded with a perfect 4-0 showing in the Hawks' sweep of East Union (70-54) and Sonora (68-57) on Wednesday in Ceres.

Brar dominated the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, 400 and long jump as Central Valley improved to 2-1 in the VOL standings.

"I was so down after the first meet," Jasveen said. "That motivated me to push ever harder at practice."

Freshman sprinter Jordan Smith finished first in the 100 and 200.

Nicole Weese won the triple jump with a personal-best mark of 26 feet, 10 inches.

Seniors Marc Bejaran, Ross Henry and Trevor Mew finished 1-2-3 in the high jump in defeat for Central Valley's varsity boys track and field team, which dropped to 0-3 in the VOL standings.

Central Valley junior Vince Lopez placed second in the long jump, and competed in the 100 and 200.

"They did a good job," Reynolds said.

Lopez earned VOL honors while starring at running back for Central Valley's varsity football squad.

"He's a huge asset to our team," Reynolds said. "He just brings a whole lot to the table. He's only been out for three weeks. He's holding his own."
