A good season came to an end for members of the Cordova High School track and field program.

Five Lancers competed at the Sac-Joaquin Section’s Masters Championships at Elk Grove High on May 25th. Competing in the trials, the Lancers were unable to advance to the finals, which were held the following day, also at Elk Grove High.

In the trials of the 400 meter race, the Lancers’ 4x400 boys relay team of Bryan Estrada, Philip Cadena, Andrew Roberts and Elijah Morgera took sixth place in the second heat at 3 minutes, 30.02 seconds. The top eight teams with the best times qualified to advance to the finals.

In the first of two flights in the girls’ shot put, Cordova’s Faauiga Toele, a freshman, was 11th with a toss of 35 feet, 3 inches. She was 12th overall. The winning mark was 39 feet, 11 inches.

The top three in the finals, plus the fourth place finisher, qualified for the 99th annual California Interscholastic Federation State Track and Field Championships, which start today, Friday, at Veterans Memorial Stadium at Buchanan High School in Clovis.
