CIF-TRACK&FIELD:Martinez-Felix in 3,200 highlights local entries

Twelve area track and field athletes will compete in Saturday’s CIF
Southern Section divisional track finals at Cerritos College.
Of particular interest is the match up in the girls Division II 3,200m
that includes Whittier’s Alma Martinez and La Mirada’s Stephanie Felix.
Felix has been the area’s dominant runner in the event the past two
seasons, but Martinez had finished ahead of her in their last two
Martinez won her heat in last weekend’s prelims posting the second
fastest time overall (10 minutes, 53.37 seconds). Felix had the fourth
fastest time (10:54.25), close enough to Martinez’s effort to ensure a
battle royale between the two again this week. Felix also qualifed for
the 1,600.
Also of note is the finish of St. Paul’s pole vaulters, four of
whom qualified for the finals and three who tied for first place: Dusty
Brown, Pete Romo and Ryan Cadwalader, and Edwin Dedios, who was sixth.
All cleared 12 feet, 6 inches.
Other locals who will compete Saturday include La Serna’s Justine
Diaz (800), Whittier’s Luis Dorantes (3,200), Schurr’s Kevin Lau (300
hurdles), El Rancho’s Vincent Tovar (long jump) and St. Paul’s Jose
Perez (shot put) and Ernie Leon (110 hurdles).
