City College’s track and field team had some notable successes at the March 13 De Anza Invitational in Cupertino with the women cap- turing first place in the 4x400m relay and freshman Jose Hernan- dez placing second in heat 2 of the 800m.
The winning time for the women was 4:09.73 and for Her- nandez, 2:11.06.
This season, Track & Field Coach Douglas Owyang is hoping his athletes can have a statewide impact.
“We’re in the coast conference which is a part of NorCal,” Owyang said. “We want to see how we do in conference, NorCal and state, state being the biggest.”
There is a lot of young talent this season, according to Owyang.
In the men’s 800m, City Col- lege freshman Gerardo Castro from El Camino High School is currently ranked number one overall in the Coast Conference and the NorCal Division. Despite only running two 800s, he is also number one in the state.
