A breezy day in Folsom led to some super-fast times at the Golden West Invitational held at Folsom High on Saturday. No one ran faster than Georgia’s D’Angelo Cherry, who won the 100 meters in a wind-aided 10.16 seconds, which was not only a meet record but also the fastest time run this season by a high-school athlete. Indiana’s Candyce McCrone won both the 100 and 200 meters in 11.37 and 23.47, respectively. North Carolina’s Spencer Adams also had a great day, winning the 110-meter high hurdles in 13.66 and the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 37.11. Jordan Hasay of Mission Prep in San Luis Obispo also wowed the crowd by winning the 800 meters in 2:09.92. Locally, Folsom’s Gianni Vernon-Reynolds finished his high school career by winning his heat in the 100 meters. Vernon-Reynolds’ time of 10.69 lowered his school record by nearly two-tenths of a second. Morgan Pugh, running the same race that Hasay won, finished 13th in 2:25. Freshman teammate Blanka Hodur competed in the 1,600-meter run and finished in 5:43. Pugh’s sister, Shelly, a 2007 graduate of Folsom High, won her age group in her first triathlon, completing the .5-mile swim, 16-mile bike and 3-mile run in 1 hour and 35 minutes.
