The 2009 Track and Field Season began with a lot of excitement. These athletes take part in a historical event of becoming the first track team on our new facility. Our numbers soured this year with ninety eight athletes almost rounding out the 100 mark. On staff we have Assistant Coaches Matt Suttle, Curtis Garner, Clark Johnson and Brian Ball. The head coach this year is Kimberly Tafoya. Of our 98 athletes, only about one third are from the junior and senior classes, the remaining two thirds are comprised of underclassmen. A very young team shows promise for the track program’s future. Some highlights to the beginning of the season include a victorious overall win against Santa Paula High School. The JV Girls, Varsity Girls and Frosh-Soph Boys were victorious against the Cardinals. For the Varsity Boys it came down to the last race, where sadly we were upset in end. Our first Tri-Valley League meet against Carpinteria came to a victorious end as well as the team came together to out score the Warriors. Our next home meet is the Citrus Valley Relays on April 4th, 2009. We will have a small meet with a couple of school just to break in the new facility. CONTINUED »
