There was a lot of exciting track and field at the CIF Meet last week.
Destiny Parker of Summit High School took eighth place in the shot put with a distance of 43-8 3/4. This was the second straight year that Parker, a senior, reached the state finals.
Michael Teran, a junior from Jurupa Hills High School, came in 13th place in the 3200 run with a time of 9:05.51. Last fall, he was a state finalist in cross country, leading the Spartans to the state cross country title.
Jacquelyn Hill of Etiwanda High School finished 12th in the 800 in 2:14.40. She was the only freshman to make it to the state meet in that event.
