Ceres High's varsity girls track and field team totaled 17 points while finishing in eighth place at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV Championships this past week at Stockton's Cesar Chavez High School.

Juniors Shania Evans, Azar Harrison and Alyssa Stiles brought home individual medals for their top-four finishes.

Stiles placed fourth in the triple jump (32-91/2).

She took 10th in the long jump (14-101/4).

"Alyssa is an extremely, competitive person," Johnson said. "Her and Shania battled it out all season. It was a friendly rivalry. That pushed them to be on their A game."
