WEEKLY ATHLETICS RECAP

Chabot weekly sports roundup, Mar 20

STATE TRACK LEADER AND A BONUS BABY!
Chabot track and field coach Kyle Robinson experienced two remarkable debut appearances last week.
This first one came on Friday when Kyle and his wife celebrated the birth of their second child, Carter James, who checked in at 7 pounds and 4 ounces on St. Patrick’s Day, nearly two years after their daughter was born on April Fools’ Day.
On Saturday, Robinson celebrated freshman David Frisbie’s debut in the 800 meters in the Sacramento State Hornet Invitational, with a state-leading time of 1 minute, 52.6 seconds – fourth best in Chabot history.
No wonder Robinson was smiling on Monday afternoon. He now has two unforgettable kids’ birthday dates in his nuclear family and a state standout in his track family. Everything's on track.
Also in the Hornet meet, Jordan Kirby had a solid time of 1:57.3 in the 800. Maurcedez Potts cracked the women’s Northern California Top 10 list with a 400 time of 1:00.2.
In the men’s 100, Trevion Green dipped under 11 seconds for the third consecutive week with a time of 10.9.
Chad Dali has a personal best in the triple jump with a mark of 41-6. Leo Gomez and Luke Busby had huge personal bests in the 5k with times of 16:18 and 16:26.

SOFTBALL
The Gladiators (9-9, 2-3) hammered out two wins last week, 19-13 over Cabrillo in nine innings and 7-4 over Gavilan.
In the 7-4 win, Chabot bolted to a 4-0 lead with four in the top of the first, highlighted by a Desiree Gonzalez two-run double and a Kathleen Perscheid RBI single. Center fielder Amanda Coley, the leadoff hitter, had a big game with three hits had three stolen bases. Coley enters this week ranked fourth in the state in stolen bases with 22, two behind a trio of state leaders.
Gonzalez, the shortstop, also tripled in the 7-4 triumph. Third baseman Chelsea Sligh was 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI.
In the 19-13 victory, Chabot erupted with six runs in the top of the ninth. Second baseman Raeann Atfield, No. 8 in the batting order, had a monster game with four hits in five at bats and three RBI.
Coley had four stolen bases, and Sligh had two doubles, four RBIs and three runs scored. Gonzalez and Perscheid, the winning pitcher, both scored three times. Perscheid allowed just three earned runs and struck out 11, walking five.
Sligh and Atfield both doubled in the climactic ninth. Chabot scored in bunches with eight in the fifth, five in the sixth and six in the ninth.

Young Chabot (12-10, 3-3 Coast-Golden Gate) rebounded from a three-game losing streak to defeat visiting City College of San Francisco 12-5 on Saturday at Gene Wellman Field.
