BURBANK - The Mabton Vikings made their mark at the SCAC track and field meet yesterday, April 18, at Burbank with times that would have put them into 15 top three finishing spots, if B League teams could rack up points in A League meets.
Luis Quintero's time of 46.20 in the 300m hurdles was 1.02 seconds ahead of S. Shelton of Columbia-Burbank, who placed third.
Mark Prussing's javelin toss of 120-4 fell just short of the 121-2 effort by Walla Walla Valley's Wilhelm, who took the first place spot.
Robert Marquez made his mark in the discus, with a 114-5 throw that was far and away better than the 99-8 posted by Cle Elum's C. Navarre, who officially placed first. Marquez also posted a 36-9 in the boys shotput, 5 inches beyond Navarre's first place throw.
The Lady Vikings also made a great show at yesterday's meet with Vanessa Gonzalez running the 3,200m in 16.19.09, which put her right behind the second place runner from Walla Walla Valley.
Trishi Williams posted a time of 19.14 in the 110-meter high hurdles, with the first place finisher from Walla Walla Valley trailing her in a time of 19.37. Williams also excelled in the 300m hurdles, finishing in 54.56, compared to the 58.03 racked up by the second place finisher from Walla Walla Valley.
