Boys track dashes toward second CIF win in a row

Boys track wins back-to-back CIF titles, solidifying the legacy of Woodbridge track with a leading score of 18 points

Boys track finished the season with another CIF title on May 21, led by senior hurdler Daniel Sun who scored the most points for the team with 18 points

Boys track has faced many seasonal challenges this year. From being the top team in Orange County, it dropped down in the rankings, according to MaxPreps. CIF finals gave the team a great opportunity to win again as CIF champions, with a strong team of hurdlers, sprinters and jumpers.

“It’s an amazing way to finish our high school track careers with the same teammates who helped us win it last year,” Sun said. “I think we’ve left a great legacy for Woodbridge track.”

Along with a huge contribution from seniors Alex Young, Jalen Gill, Nehemiah Nash and Sun, junior long jumper Nate Ledoux scored two points in the long jump to help the team overcome Colony High and secure the title.

“I knew going into this meet that I had to perform well to score for the team,” Ledoux said. “When coach told me that my scoring put us over the hump for the title, it was a successful feeling knowing I secured the CIF championship for our team this year.”

After winning the CIF title for the second year in a row, coach Aaron Craver said he was pleased with the team’s hard work and determination. Despite having fewer athletes compete in the meet than last year, Craver was able to secure the title by putting athletes in their strongest events to secure points for the team.

“I could not be happier about our success at CIF finals,” Craver said. “This was the perfect way to send out this hardworking group of seniors this year. Sending them off with a CIF championship under their belt is more than perfect.”
