The Miner Track team sent six athletes to the state track and field championships to compete on May 10 and 11 at Mesa Community College in Mesa.

In the 110m Hurdle finals, Wayne Newman blew away the competition with a time of 14.52 defending his 2012 title.

He again took the 300m Hurdle title with a time of 38.41, he also placed fifth in the high jump and was champion in long jump with a jump of 22’8.25”.

“In both the prelims and finals, Wayne looked so strong against the competition,” head coach Maria Lopez said. “In each race there was plenty of daylight between Wayne and the rest of the field. His times were such that he would have beat out all Division III and Division II competitors, and if running against Division I runners, would have placed in the top three.”

Newman will compete this Wednesday at Brophy Prep in the Meet of Champions.

On May 10, the results in the Girls Discus: Ani Robles had a throw of 74’4.50” and Maxi Lara had a throw of 77’8”.

In the 100m dash, Lizzette Campa posted a time of 14.24. In the 110m Hurdles, Wayne Newman posted a time of 14.37. In the 300m Hurdles, Wayne Newman posted a time 38.67 and Jared Gonzales posted a time of 49.77.

The results for Saturday May 11, in the Triple Jump for the girls, Nicole Predgo Primero had a jump of 27’6.25”. In the Shot Put for the girls, Maxi Lara had a toss of 28’6”.
