City College track and field competed against contenders from six California community colleges Feb. 22 to win and lose events in the SCC Opener 2014.

Sounds of gunfire, whistles and yells filled Hughes Stadium Saturday as Panthers ran, jumped and threw in various events to defeat, and to be defeated by, rivals.

“We’re a young team and we (have) things to learn,” said Panthers’ assistant coach Lisa Bauduin.

Still, according to Bauduin, she and Panthers’ head coach Rob Dewar liked what they saw from the mostly freshmen team.

Women’s team freshman Mahogany Stitt took first in the high jump with her best jump of 5-6. Teammates Krystal Rodrick and Kyra Kumara placed second and third.

Rodrick would take first in the long jump with a leap of 15-9. City College sophomore Jahmisha Nelson followed in second and Stitt in third.

Freshman thrower Chrissa Roger had a second-place finish in the shot put and a third-place finish in the hammer throw. Freshman Julia Patterson finished second in the discus.

On the track, Panthers’ sophomore Ziel Davis and freshman Michaela Pino both had good outings. Davis won the 100-meter with a time of 13.04 and the 100-meter hurdles.

Pino took the 200 -meter with a time of 25.78 and second place in the 400-meter with a time of 1:00.59. She finished just a second off College of the Siskyous’ first-place finisher who finished 59.0 flat.

In the 4 x 400 relay, the women’s team placed second with a time of 4:18.79.

The women’s 4 x 100 team was dominant against its challengers, winning the race with a huge lead from the start, but later disqualified because of a bad baton exchange.

On the men’s track there were some key highlights and some absences from events, including the 5,000-meter and the 4 x 100 relay team.

“I didn’t want to run (the men),” said Dewar. “We ran on Monday in Fresno.”

Dewars stated runners are competing in both events at American River’s Beaver Relays next weekend, but none during Saturday’s opener for fear of “wearing out their legs.”

The men’s highlights came from Kelvin Watkins, winning second place in the men’s 400-meter hurdles with a time of 59.03 seconds and the 200-meter hurdles with a time of 15.73.

The men’s 4×400 relay team ended the meet with a close second-place finish of 3:19:84 behind American River College’s 3:19:79.

Freshman Armani Reynolds took the 400-meter, with a time of 49:20.

In field events, sophomores Jamie Cruz finished fifth in the shot put and Garrett Siscal placed fifth in the discus. Freshman Kyle Rodriques finished fourth in pole vault.

“I like to see a good first performance,” said assistant coach John Badovanic.

Spring-like weather accommodated events for the duration of Saturday’s opener, which ran from 11 a.m. – 5:30 pm.

American River College, College of Marin, San Mateo Community College,Shasta College, College of the Siskiyous, and Yuba College comprised the Panthers’ season opener.
