Douglas High’s standout pole vaulters turned in yet another impressive performance Saturday at the Arcadia Invitational in Arcadia, Calif.
Senior Nick Maestretti, who has already signed a letter of intent with Kansas, took fifth in the invitational division of the pole vault with a height of 15 feet, 0.75 inches.
Senior Amanda Brazeau was ninth in the invitational division for girls’ pole vault with a height of 11-7.
The Arcadia meet featured more than 300 teams from all over the West Coast and Canada.
As a whole, the Douglas track team’s numbers were heavily depleted due to spring break, but the Lady Tigers sent five athletes to the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.
The 4×400 relay squad of Aspen Abbott, Olivia Abbott, Sadie Gastelum and Cara Dunkelman finished second in the Section I finales with a time of 4:14.00.
The Tiger 4×800 relay team of Aspen Abbott, Sadie Gastelum, Lindsey Adams and Cara Dunkelman finished ninth in the Section I finals with a time of 9:58.04.
“They were just a couple seconds off their best time of the year,” Douglas coach Jim Abbott said. “They ran well.”
Douglas next competes in the Thunder Invitational in Rocklin, Calif., this weekend.
