Panthers shine at MOC 

The St. Mary’s High track & field squad had a good day at the Meet of Champions in Sacramento on Saturday with four wins, including three from the boys’ side. 

Solomon Welch pulled off yet another double win with first-place finishes in the long jump and triple jump, although Robert Banks of Woodcreek jumped an identical 46’05” in the triple jump. The biggest surprise of the day was a win by the boys’ 4x100 relay team, which finished in a blazing 41.87, their fastest time of the year and the seventh fastest in the state this season. 

Kamaiya Warren was her usual dominating self, winning the discus and taking second in the shotput. Danielle Stokes continued her season-long duel with Talia Stewart of Logan High, finishing behind the sophomore in both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles to finish second and third, respectively.  


Berkeley girls finish second at ACCAL championship  

The Berkeley High girls finished second at the ACCAL track & field championship on Saturday in Hercules, while the boys limped home with a fourth-place finish. Alameda High swept the meet, more than doubling Berkeley’s point on the girls’ side and topping Pinole Valley, 153-120, on the boys’ side.  

Berkeley’s Alex Enscoe continued his dominance in the distance events, winning both the 1,600 and 3,200. 


Individual performances not enough for ’Jackets  

Berkeley High’s swim teams both came in second behind Alameda at the ACCAL swimming championships at Contra Costa College on Saturday. 

Berkeley sophomore Dominic Cathey won by four seconds in the 200 individual medley, taking more than a second off of his personal best with a time on 2:00.38. Cathey also won the 500 freestyle. Nick Easterday also won two events for the ’Jackets, nipping Alameda’s Terry Fukichi in the 50 free and 100 free.
