Folsom High track athletes won two events and set three school records at the Folsom Distance Carnival on Saturday. The varsity boys' 4x1,600-meter relay team of Derek Woodard, Aaron Burkhead, Ryley Hoffman and Austin Bailey finished in second place but posted a time of 19 minutes, 23.9 seconds that broke an 18-year-old school record by 16 seconds. Woodard had the best split of 4:36, while Burkhead finished his run in 4:50. Hoffman ran a 5:07, while Bailey finished in 4:49. Folsom High's freshman-sophomore boys also set a new school record by winning the 4x1,600 in 19:41.7, shattering the previous school record by more than a minute. Mike Kinoshita (4:48.8), Sam Scheuer (4:54), Jake Goodwin (4:59) and Jon Barrows (4:49.1) all posted personal-best times. For Goodwin and Barrows, it was their first time running the 1,600 in less than five minutes. The freshman-sophomore girls also won their 4x1,600 race with a school-record time of 27:48.1. Jenn Rees (6:50), Lisa Hoang (7:13), Kaeti Park (7:11) and Ashley Anderson (6:32) made up the team. Park and Anderson posted personal-best splits. Vinnie Morin placed fifth in the 800 with a personal-best time of 2:15.2, while Cristiano Bobiles ran ninth in the 1,600 in 5:13. Tim Scott ran his best time in the race of 5:57. Folsom competed in a tri-meet with Sheldon at Oak Ridge on May 4 and Woodard and Trevor Jones had the top performances. Both won two events, Woodard claiming the 400 meters (52.0) and 800 (2:00.5), while Jones claimed the shot put (44 feet, 6 inches) and discus (144'6”). Woodard's time in the 400 was a personal-best, as was Tyler Trosin's win in the 200 meters in 22.4. Trosin also took second in the 100 meters in 10.9, while Jim Bryan placed second in the 110 hurdles in 17.9. Both were personal-best performances. Jessica Gannon claimed the high jump at 5'2”, while Katie Ross won the discus with a throw of 61'. Katie Pettingill placed second in the 100 hurdles in 16.4, four-tenths of a second off a school record. At the freshman-sophomore level, Andrew Weis won the 100 (11.6) and 200 (23.1), while Barrows claimed the 3,200 (11:09).
