Hawks do well in league
Central Valley High School's varsity boys track and field team capped off the Western Athletic Conference dual-meet season with a victory on Tuesday, May 3.

The Hawks edged out host Patterson 71-62 and finished in second place in the league standings.

"If we had more people, we could have competed for first," said Tyree Jones, Central Valley's senior leader. "We still made history."

Jones placed first in the 100 and 200, and third in the long jump against the Tigers.

Edward Martinez placed first in the 300 hurdles and second in the 400.

Greg Tripp placed first in the 400.

Cristian Chavez placed first in the shot put and third in the discus.

Central Valley's 4x100 relay team of Jones, Ja'Quan Gardner, Terrence Sadler and Michael Luzinski placed first.

Tigers 92, Hawks 32

Central Valley's girls lost at Patterson this past week thanks in large part to its lack of depth.
