All-SCV Boys Track and Field Team
Gabriel Coronado, Golden Valley, seniorCoronado was one of two SCV male athletes to make it to the state meet after a third-place finish in discus at the CIF Masters Meet. He performed well in both discus and shot, nabbing the top spot among all Foothill League throwers this season in both events.
Blake Walkowiak, Saugus, seniorWalkowiak was the Cents’ best thrower in both the shot put and discus. He was 3 inches away from qualifying for the state meet in discus, throwing 165 feet, 4 inches at the Masters Meet. He was consistent competition for Coronado all season, ranking second in league in both events.
Steven Arrington, Canyon, seniorArrington improved vastly from the time he stepped onto the Canyon track scene. At the Foothill League finals, he placed first in the 200 and second in the 100. It was his second consecutive year as a league champion in the 100.
Sam Pica, Valencia, seniorWith decathlon goals, Pica competed in all sorts of events this season. His league-topping 400 time of 48.08 was also a new all-time Valencia best. He was also league champion in the long jump and was part of the league champion Vikings 4×100 relay team. In pole vault, he bested all Foothill League athletes by clearing 6-4, but did not compete in that event in the league finals.
Mya Davis, West Ranch, sophomoreIt was pretty common to see Davis double in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles this season, although he was stronger in the latter. He came in first in the 300 hurdles at Foothill League finals and had the top time in league all season at 40.86 seconds. He was the fourth-ranked hurdler in the 110 race.
John Campbell, Hart, seniorCampbell and his brother Nelson were both major contributors to Hart this season in pole vault and triple jump, but John edged out his sibling in the pole vault this year, making it to the CIF-SS finals by clearing 14 feet at prelims.
Justin Sherfey, West Ranch, seniorThere were a lot of good boys distance runners in the Foothill League, but Sherfey was the only one to rank in the top three in the 800, 1600 and the 3200. At the Foothill League finals, he came in first in the 800, clocking one minute, 59.68 seconds, and the 1600 at 4:24.91.
Joshua Pikes, Valencia, seniorPikes could both run and jump. He was a part of the Valencia 4×100 and 4×400 relay teams in addition to running the 200 and the 110 hurdles. Just .04 seconds separated him from the top 200 time in league this season, although he made up for it with the fastest 110 hurdles time. At the CIF-SS D1 finals, he came in ninth in the 200.
