Wildfires Track Team

Megan Knudsvig leads the pack in one of the track events at the John Frank Invitational in Shasta Lake on April 16.

On 4/16 the Wildfires Track Team traveled to the City of Shasta Lake, near Redding, to compete in the 45th Annual John Frank Invitational at Central Valley High School. Coaches Rebecca Redding, Marc Anderson, and Joe Aldrich made the decision to bring the team up north to face schools of similar size. Though only sixteen Wildfires made the trip to Shasta Lake, they brought home 23 PRs (personal records) and 9 medals! Of note, frosh Liz Bradley took home 3rd place in the Varsity Girls 400 meters (1:03.8), 4th in the 800 meters (2:35.49), Grace Sanders was 5th in the Varsity Girls high jump (4'10"), and the girls were 5th in the Varsity Girls 1600 meter relay (4:41.75; junior Grace Sanders, sophomore Missa Miller, senior Julia Ortega, and frosh Liz Bradley). On the boys' side, frosh Ezra Aldrich placed 4th in the Junior Varsity pole vault (9'6"), while sophomore Mitch Henry was 5th in the Junior Varsity discus (98'4").
