Track & Field
Our track & field had an amazing season. We participated in 3 field events and placed in 3rd in discus (Sagapolutele) and 5th place in shot put (Payne).
Our runners did amazing during the season. Our 4 x 100 relay group has been running together since their freshman year, now being seniors It was definitely their year to shine. Coming in 2nd in their qualifying run, one of the boys sustained a hamstring injury at the completion of the race. Unsure of whether he would be OK to run, he made the decision to step out and have an alternate run in his place. This group of boys edged Hilo to win the State Title in the Boy’s 4 x 100 relay with a time of 42.60.
Christian Padron won the ILH 100m and 200m Championship. He is the State Champ in the 100m & the 200m, breaking the state record for the 100m of 10.77 with a finishing time of 10.63. Christian also broke the venue record for the 200m with the finishing time of 21.97.
Christian Padron was selected as the ILH MVP of the Year, DMS Athlete of the Year, DMS Track & Field MVP and Gatorade Player of the Year for Track & Field.
