It was another record-breaking day for Sonoma Valley High School sophomore Isabel Garon, but her Dragon varsity boys and girls’ track and field teams fell short in their attempts to upend longtime Sonoma County League rival Analy in their dual-meet battles Wednesday in Sebastopol.
Sonoma’s varsity boy thinclads dropped a 79-57 decision to the Tigers, while the Lady Dragons were narrowly edged 67-63 by Analy, with Garon breaking her recently set school pole-vault record with an event-winning vault of 10 feet, and then won the girls’ long jump with a leap of 14 feet, 8 inches.
The other Lady Dragon event winners were freshman standout Kiara Miles’ 100- and 200-meter first-place finishes in 13.45 and 28.37 seconds, respectively; senior Sachi Spaulding’s high-jump first place at 4 feet, 10 inches; junior Christen Silkey’s discus first at 75-7; sophomore Madeline Libbey’s 3,200 first in 12 minutes, 54.7 seconds; and frosh Grace Cutting’s 1,600 first in 5:51.0.
Sonoma’s boys’ individual event winners included senior Owen Ljung’s 800 and 1,600 first places in 2:06.5 and 4:39.28, respectively; senior Keegan Ginter’s 3,200 first in 10:27.40; senior Max Floerke’s long-jump first at 19-10; junior Ian Sloop’s high-jump first at 5-4; and sophomore Edwin Reyes’ 400 first in 51.78.
In their home finales, the Dragon boys and girls’ teams will host El Molino in SCL dual-meets at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7, on Schantz Track.
