Doug Vernon and Derek Woodard will represent Folsom High at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Track and Field Championships held Thursday and Friday at Hughes Stadium at Sacramento City College. Vernon placed seventh in the triple jump with a leap of 43 feet, 10 inches. He was injured on his first and only leap, but it was good enough to place him seventh and qualified him for the Masters meet. Woodard also pulled a muscle during a false start in the 1,600, but still ran a 4:30.57 to grab the last qualifying spot, 10th place.
