Daniela Pollard led the way for the Nitros’ girls’ team on Thursday, winning three field events.
Pollard was first in the long jump with a jump of 17 feet 1 inch, the triple jump (37-2) and the high jump (4-8).
“It’s a good day for her,” Bailey said of Pollard. “We’re looking forward to seeing her at the Arcadia meet and at Mt. SAC in the next couple weeks.”
Notable second-place finishes for the Nitros’ girls included Shannon Cruz in the 100-meter high hurdles in 18.3 seconds, Melissa Sanchez in the 400 in 60.5, Alin Jabourian in the 200 in 26.9 and Frances Pasamba in the 3,200 in 12:19.
Pasamba, Sanchez and Cruz each logged PRs in their respective races.
On the boys’ side, Rasul Landery won the 110 high hurdles in 17.7 and Ronnie Marquez won the shot put with a 43-8.5 heave.
Both marks were PRs.
Some strong second-place showings included Robert Weathers in the 200 (23.3) and 400 (52.8) and John Canlas in the 800 (2:07.6).
In field events, Roy Cameron was second in the triple jump (40-3) and Jorge Balliga was runner-up in the high jump (5).
The Nitros girls are now 2-1 in league, while the boys are 1-2. Both squads are back in action on Saturday in the Spartan relays at Rio Mesa High. League competition resumes on Wednesday in a tri-meet with Crescenta Valley and Burbank.
