MISSION VIEJO – Trabuco Hills’ boys track and field team is blessed with weapons across the board.

Even without two of their top athletes, the Mustangs did not take a back seat to anyone in their host meet.

Cameron Hurd thrilled the hometown crowd in sweeping the hurdles Saturday in the Trabuco Hills Invitational.

The Mustangs were without state high jump leader Sean Lee and talented pole vaulter Chris Doerr, but the school was still well represented by Hurd. The Navy-bound senior set a personal best of 14.44 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles, and he was named the boys track athlete of the meet.

Hurd said that the key to his success was to not get into his comfort zone. He could hardly afford to with Walnut’s Alan Tantiwassadakran on his shoulder. The duo came into the meet with matching times of 14.60 in the high hurdles.

“If we ran this race 10 times, Alan would have beat me five of those times,” Hurd said. “I just got away. I got a great start for my 110 and kind of crept out on Alan.”

The spotlight shined brightly over the pole vault with two of the top four vaulters in the state going at it. State leader Jett Gordon (Marina) defeated La Costa Canyon’s Kyle Brown.

Gordon cleared the bar at 16 feet, 6 inches. The jump broke the meet record of former Vikings vaulter Logan Odden (2000), whom Gordon recently surpassed for the school record.

“It’s great to be jumping those heights that were set years ago, breaking them, and just bringing more recognition to Marina,” Gordon said.

Servite’s relays have thrived with the combination of Keyon Riley, Keith Taylor, Julius Irvin, and Xavier Hernandez. Riley demonstrated his importance to the 1,600 relay team by winning the 400 in 48.77, which moves him to 11th in the state.

Newport Harbor’s Emma Kratzberg was named girls track athlete of the meet after winning the 400 in 56.88 and taking more than a second off her best time.

The county’s other sprints wins came from El Modena’s Sydney Carr in the 100 and Woodbridge’s Alex Young in the 200.

In the distance races, Katie Camarena of San Juan Hills took first in the 800, while El Toro’s Michael Biedebach won the 3,200.

Mission Viejo’s throwing tandem dominated. Emma DeSilva took ownership of the county’s top spot in the discus with a throw of 143-6. Ciera Williams was also victorious, posting 40-11 in the shot put.

“You could call it a fairytale season so far,” said DeSilva, a Cal signee. “It’s such a good environment when everyone around you is winning.”

Anaheim’s Paul Magana joined the county leaders with a triple jump of 45-4. Sage Hill’s Chance Kuehnel won the high jump at 6-8.

Other county girls to win jumping events were El Toro’s Paula Pedrani in the triple jump and Oxford Academy’s Emily Huynh in the long jump.

Mater Dei’s McKenna Caskey jumped 12-6 to win girls pole vault.
