Sometimes the “field” part of track and field can be overlooked in favor of the more glamorous sprint and hurdles events. But without star thrower Kamaiya Warren, who virtually guarantees the Panthers two first-place finishes in every dual meet, St. Mary’s High’s ultra-successful girls track team would not be the same high-scoring threat to the NCS title it figures to be later this month.
Warren put in yet another fantastic performance over the weekend, this time against elevated competition, taking second in the shotput and first in the discus at Saturday’s James Logan Top-8 Invitational. Her 40-4 and 137-1 throws in the respective events earned Warren accolades as Female Field Event Athlete of the Meet.
The Logan effort came on the heels of a third-place finish in both events at May 22’s Vallejo Invitational. Warren’s personal best throw of 42-2.75 ranks among the top 10 in the state, while her discus mark ranks seventh.
