WEEKLY ATHLETICS RECAP

A DISCUS STAR IS BORN

The Chabot track and field team expected its Big Four of Leroy Elliott Jr., Jason Intravaia, Conner McKinnon and Rhomel Clarke to be among the state's elite, but a fifth star emerged.  
Adora Garrick, who didn't qualify for the NorCal meet last year in the women's discus, had a grand finale to her Chabot career.
She finished second at the CCCAA State Championships on Saturday, with a personal best mark of 140 feet, 7 inches at San Diego Mesa College – No. 2 all-time at Chabot.  
"Adora was a big surprise," Chabot coach Kyle Robinson said proudly of Garrick, who earned All-American honors. "She came a long way." 
Garrick, a Castro Valley High graduate, also finished second at the NorCal meet with a mark of136 feet, 1 inch, after throwing 133 feet, 3 inches in the NorCal Trials. She improved seven feet in the final few weeks of the season.
Elliott placed third in the state 110 hurdles for the second straight year, with a time of 14.55. McKinnon, an impressive freshman, was also third in the 800, in 1:53.32. Clarke was ninth in the 800, in 1:59.11. Intravaia, of San Ramon Valley, was fourth in the 1,500, in 4:00.27. 
Robinson was also sang the praises of sophomore Jazz Singh. Two years after suffering three cracked vertebrae in a motorcycle accident, Singh ran a personal best of 10.76 seconds in the 100 to finish second at the Coast Conference meet. 
"Overall, it went well for us. We're pretty pleased," Robinson said of the season, noting that he had seven or eight additions to the Chabot Top 10 list.
