WEEKLY ATHLETICS RECAP

Chabot sports roundup, March 14


TRACK AND FIELD OFF TO FLYING START; BASEBALL IN CONTENTION
The Chabot track and field program has a bunch of talented athletes this season, including some who have already made an impact on the state community college rankings.
“I think it’s a good sign,” Chabot head coach Kyle Robinson said about the great early-season marks for many of his athletes. “Ari (Milton) just started practicing the triple jump. The distance guys have been doing a lot of longer, base stuff (in their training).”
Milton, a freshman, is the state community college leader in the women’s triple jump with a leap of 39 feet, 3¼ inches, achieved at the Johnny Mathis Invitational at San Francisco State on Feb. 25.
At the De Anza Invitational on March 10, Milton broke the stadium record with a leap of 38-6. She also won the women’s 200 meters in 25.19 seconds, which ranks fourth in the state, according to directathletics.com.
Milton also has the unique distinction of being listed in the Chabot women’s track and field top-10 all-time list in five events: the triple jump (No. 2), the 200, 100 high hurdles (14.96 seconds, which ranks eighth in the state this season), the 100 (12.50) and long jump (17-8 ¾. 10th in the state this season).
“She may be the most versatile athlete Chabot has had since Felicia Harris. On either the men’s or women’s side,” texted Robinson, talking about Milton and 1990-91 Chabot star Harris. “She’s shown interest in doing the heptathlon down the line, in which I believe she’d be able to excel. She is already extremely strong in three of the seven events.”
David Frisbie, another freshman, has the No. 4 time in the state in the men’s 5,000 (14:57.05). He achieved that outstanding mark in his first 5,000 race on a track, Robinson said, at the American River Beaver Relays on March 4. It was a windy race in which Frisbie won by 45 seconds, Robinson said.
Frisbie also placed second in the men’s 1,500 at the Johnny Mathis Invitational (4:00.37). In cross country, Frisbie set the tone for the track season with an excellent sixth-place finish at the CCCAA State Championship on Nov. 16 in Fresno.
Brett Greene, a sophomore, ran a personal record of 15:15.52 in the men’s 5,000 at the Johnny Mathis Invitational. He was the top junior college finisher in the race. At the De Anza Invitational, he won the men’s 1,500 with a personal-best time of 4:14.
Aziim Alishlah, another sophomore, ran a personal best of 10.95 in the men’s 100 at the Monterey Peninsula College Open on Feb. 18. Dylan Zollinger, a sophomore, set a personal record in the men’s pole vault at the American River Beaver Relays with a mark of 12-9½.
Trevion Greene, who transferred from Lake Tahoe Community College to play football at Chabot, ran 10.78 in the men’s 100 at the Monterey Peninsula meet, which is tied for ninth in the state this season. That was a personal record for Greene, who only competed in high school track and field for one season and this is his first community college track and field season, Robinson said. Greene also produced a time of 22.19 in the men’s 200 in the same meet.
Jordan Kirby, a freshman, produced a personal record of 1:58.02 in the men’s 800 at the American River meet. He also ran 4:07.02 in the men’s 1,500 at the Johnny Mathis Invitational.
Freshman Jahdai Bolds won the men’s 800 at the De Anza Invitational with a personal-best time of 1:59.16.

BASEBALL:
Chabot opened play in the Coast-Golden last week with a 2-1 mark, including back-to-back wins over West Valley, 10-1 on Tuesday and 15-7 on Thursday, before a 7-6 loss at De Anza.
Freshman utility Vincent Volpatti leads the Gladiators with a .429 batting average (No. 11 in the state) and a stellar slugging percentage of .714 (No. 7 in the state). In the 7-6 loss, Volpatti muscled up for two home runs and three RBI, and Hunter Harris and Jalen Bustos also had home runs.
In the 10-1 win, Adam Hollar was 3 for 5 with three RBIs and three runs scored, and starter Christopher Tonna (1-0) went six strong innings, allowing five hits and one earned run, striking out five and walking one. Marcus Dubois got the save, allowing two hits and no runs over three innings.
In the 15-7 win, Harris, the catcher, stole the show with four RBIs, and Volpatti, the shortstop and leadoff, was 3 for 4 with two runs scored and an RBI. First baseman Nick Hermes was 2 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBI, and Hollar had two RBI.

SOFTBALL:
After taking an exciting sweep of Shasta on March 7, 12-10 and 13-6, the Gladiators (7-9, 1-3) dropped back-to-back road games in the Coast-North and dropped into fourth place. Chabot fell 4-0 to Foothill and 10-0 to College of San Mateo.
In the 12-10 win, the Gladiators rapped out 12 hits as shortstop Desiree Gonzalez led the charges going 3 for 4 with four runs scored, and third baseman Chelsea Sligh had three RBIs. Three players had two hits apiece with a double: Kathleen Perscheid, Brieanna Lewis and Melissa Jauregui.
In the 13-6 romp, Chabot’s No. 2 and 3 hitters Gonzalez and Perscheid took care of business, combining for five hits, seven runs scored, five RBIs and two extra-base hits.

GOLF: The Gladiators crushed the competition in the latest Coast Conference tourney with a 383 score.

Chabot had four players break 80. Anthony Gutierrez and Tyler McDaniel both shot 75, Zack McClure shot 76, and Heetae Yang shot 77. 

Chabot prevailed by 11 shots over second place Modesto.
