The morning breeze, the bustling of athletes scattered in every direction and buckets of Gatorade.  This was the scene at the Woody Wilson track in Davis on March 12. UC Davis presented the track and field Aggie Opening, inviting 12 schools from Northern California including a state college from Nevada to compete with one another.

City College’s track and field team echoed with team spirit as it went up against the 12 schools. The Panthers performed in almost every category, from javelin throwing to flying over hurdles to dashing in the relays to pole vaulting to meter dashes.
“We’re doing good,” track and field head coach Rob Dewar commenting on his athletes. “With the [good] weather, we’ll see where we’re at next week.”

The clock struck 11:30 a.m. when the blank gun fired into the air signaling the start of the women’s 4×100 relay. Carmen Knighton sped with flashes of the colors of City College, cardinal and gold, handing off the baton to Jazmine Alexander then firmly handling it to Ariel Garner and finishing up with Samantha Esperanza, winning the second heat.

“We just have to work on our hand offs,” Esparanza said. “Overall, it was really good, I think our timing needs to [improve].”

Throughout the day, City College competed in mind boggling pole vaulting, meter dashes, dramatic hurdle jump competitions and incredible javelin hurling.

Woody Wilson track was filled with families, friends, photographers and scouts who were observing the event in great detail. More than 500 people sat in the bleachers cheering the athletes on as they push themselves to their limits.

“There was a lot of good competition here today,” City College pole vault specialist Ferrin Peterson says. “Davis put on a good meet and there was a lot of good talent.”

For its next event, the track and field team will travel to Sacramento State University for the Hornet Invite on March 19.
