NWAACC Track and Field Athletes of the Week #7

Male Track Athletes of the Week
Rigoberto Jimenez, Spokane, Freshman

Meet: Spike Arlt Invitational
Event: 10K Mark: 31:50

Coaches' comments: Ran the race most of the way solo and won by a 1:00 also broke the meet record by 40 seconds

Matt Romey, Mt. Hood, Sophomore

Meet: Lewis & Clark Invitational
Event: 800m Mark: 1:56.65
Event: 4x400m Relay Mark: 3:21.43

Coaches' comments: Matt has been shaking off a little rust but is now beginning to run fast again. Though the results indicate he got 4th in the Pioneer open, he blew his heat away and was running by himself. I have mentioned it several times…the men’s 800m at NWAACC is going to be HOT. Romey concluded his meet by running a 48.7ish anchor leg on a season PR relay performance.

Another coach wrote, “This is a really good time for him.”

Male Field Athlete of the Week
Griffon Jones, Spokane, Freshman

Meet: Spike Arlt Invitational
Event: Discus Mark: 151’ Event: SP Mark: 44’0

Coaches' comments: Comments about athlete’s performance(s): Both were new PR’s (Discus-8’ PR, SP-1’ PR) and we are really impressed w/ Griffon as he played basketball and has only been out for a month. He is the new NWAACC leader in the Discus.

Female Track Athlete of the Week
Catherine Sims Mt. Hood Sophomore

Meet: Lewis & Clark Invitational
Event: 100m Hurdles Mark: 15.44
Event: 200m Mark: 25.42

Event: 4x400m Relay (anchor leg) Mark: 4:04.24 (58.8-ish split)

Coaches' comments: Catherine took about a second off of her hurdles time for the year; she won the 400m in the pioneer open with a good time; she competed well in the heptathlon earlier in the week; and she ran huge in the meet winning 4x400m Relay. Catherine is very versatile and is on the verge of improving her marks to the next level.
