If Friday’s Woody Wilson Invitational at UC Davis was any indication, Oak Ridge senior Hayley Scott is going to enjoy running in college. Scott, who recently accepted a scholarship to attend UC Davis and participate in the school’s cross country and track and field programs, reaped the benefits of her future home track before she even enrolled in the school. Scott set a personal-best record in the 3,200-meter run during the invitational, completing the race in 10 minutes, 54.49 seconds. Not only was it her best time by 16 seconds, it was also good enough to place her second in the race. According to Oak Ridge coach Rob Fairley, Scott’s time is second-fastest in Oak Ridge history and the fastest so far by a female runner in the Sac-Joaquin Section. Sarah Vaughn also performed well at the meet, as she won the high jump with a mark of 5 feet, 4 inches. Shannon Trumbull turned in solid performances in the hurdles, as she took second in the 300-meter hurdles in 46.6 and was third in the 100-meter hurdles in 15.53. Her time in the 100-meter hurdles is second best by an Oak Ridge athlete, while her 300-meter hurdle time is third fastest in Oak Ridge history. Amjed Aboukhadijeh placed second in the 1,600 in 4:21.08, while Abby Walker ran third in the 800 meters in 2:19.42. Other top performers included Benji Xie, who ran fifth in the 3,200 meters in 9:27.90. The girls’ distance medley team of Jackie Mansoor, Maxine Goyette, Brittney Putman and Samantha Ralstin ran fourth in 12:56.08.
