Several Sobrato and Live Oak athletes record personal records at
CCS track meet
San Jose – Although the Live Oak Acorns and Sobrato Bulldogs did not have any athletes advance to the Central Coast Section Finals on Friday, several athletes performed well at the CCS semifinals on Saturday at San Jose City College.

Andrew Taylor, Jimmy Mallette, Colby Austin, Katie Armstrong and Courtney Robinson represented the Acorns at the CCS semis.

Taylor finished the 800 meter with a time of 2:06.12, impressing Live Oak coach Dean Raymond. Mallette earned 16th place in the shotput with a throw of 45′, while Austin placed 22nd with a throw of 42’5″.

Armstrong, a sophomore, completed the 100 meter hurdles in 17.99 seconds, recording a personal best, while freshman Robinson competed in the 400 (1:05.70).

The Bulldogs also had five athletes representing their team at the semifinals, Lance Wolfsmith, Chris Sargent, Alex Cervantes, Ariel Mosbrucker and Franziska Gellert.

Wolfsmith participated in the 1600 meter, just one week after turning his ankle in the same event at the Tri-County Athletic League finals, and finished with a time of 4:39.01. Sargent finished the 200 meter dash in 23.90 seconds and Cervantes finished the 100 meter hurdles in 17.70 seconds. Mosbrucker placed 14th in the high jump (4’10”) and Gellert finished 14th in the pole vault with a jump of 8’6″.

“Two of the three senior boys had PRs, both of our throwers in the meet, so I was pleased with that,” said Dean Raymond, Live Oak track coach. “On the girls side I was excited to see that both Courtney, a freshman, and Katie, a sophomore, both made it to CCS. And Katie also ran a PR.”
