A determined Theodore Goujon has come a long way since qualifying for state in the 100 and 200 meters last year.
Monday, he is one of the athletes who qualified for the annual Marilyn Sepulveda Memorial track and field event in both sprints, which is quite an accomplishment. His time of 11:01 in the 100 is the fifth-best. In the 200, his 23:34 is second-fastest, right behind Carlsbad sophomore Xander Elizando’s 22:02. Elizando also has the fastest in the 100 with his 10:81.
The distances will be run by St. Michael’s senior Austin Luttrell and sophomore Justin Angel. Luttrell will go in the 1,600, Angel in the 3,200, where he has 11th best time. Luttrell’s time of 4:42.23 is ninth-best in his event.
The one to beat in the 1,600 is Hobbs senior Andrew Bosquez, who has run 4:25.56. In the 3,200, Angel will have to contend with Rio Rancho High senior Deven Pardes (9:28.24), West Las Vegas senior Miguel Coca (9:40.65), and Hobbs senior Jesse Madrid (9:41.60).
In the 300 hurdles will be Horsemen senior Esteban Alcarez with a time of 41:09, the slowest in the field. The best comes from Alamogordo senior Alex Alton, who’s hurdled in 37:71.
And in the pole vault, Demons senior Mateo Martinez has a best of 12-7, seventh-best in the field, with Clovis senior Buzgin Foster going up and over at 15-feet.
