Central Valley High School's varsity boys and girls track and field teams competed at Livingston last week.

The Hawks' 4x100 relay team of PJ Singh, Angelo Bermudez, Alex Vazquez and Ja'Quan Gardner placed first.

Gardner also finished first in the 100 and long jump.
Bermudez took second in the 100.
