Ranked No. 1 in the state, Faulkner completed the race in 2 minutes, 07.90 seconds.

Abadallah Maghoub won the men's 200 backstroke title with a time of 1:53.5. 

The Chabot women's squad placed third in the team standings, and the men finished fourth.

TRACK AND FIELD 

Fresh from a week off, the Chabot track and field team will enter the Coast Conference meet Wednesday and Saturday at De Anza College with an impressive cast of male runners and female throwers. 

Though Hartnell is favored to take the men's team title, the Gladiators expect to contend for the No. 2 spot. 

"We have a lot of guys high in the rankings, but will likely lose to Hartnell and their depth," Chabot coach Kyle Robinson says. "We have an individual ranked either first or second in every running event in our conference, with the exception of the 400 hurdles. Our women in the throws are looking to do some damage this weekend as well." 

BASEBALL 

The Gladiators (21-12, 12-6) have a chance to surge into a tie for first place with Mission (25-9, 14-4) in a home-and-home series against the Saints.

Chabot will host Mission at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, before traveling to face Mission on Thursday afternoon. 

Chabot had a seven-game winning streak snapped in a 6-4 loss to host College of San Mateo on Saturday, after beating the Bulldogs 9-2 on April on April 21. The Gladiators also notched a 19-0 win over CCSF on April 19. 

Kennedy-Fremont High graduate Cal Stevenson, a transfer from Nevada who has signed with Arizona, is No. 2 in the state in walks with 22. The center fielder/leadoff is also tied for eighth in the state in stolen bases with 17.  

Sophomores Michael Echavia and Kenny Corey, a transfer from Fresno State, are also enjoying big seasons.  

Echavia, an Amador Valley graduate, has team-bests in batting average (.349), hits (44), home runs (3), doubles (10), and slugging percentage (.548). 

Corey, a shortstop, has a .347 batting average, 42 hits, nine doubles, four triples (tied with Stevenson for No. 1 on the team), and has a .512 slugging percentage. Freshman Kevin Nava leads the pitching staff in wins with a 6-3 record and in strikeouts with 52, and Connor Loar has a 5-1 mark. 

SOFTBALL 

The Gladiators (26-11, 5-6) showed great resolve in back-to-back comebacks wins over Gavilan and rival Ohlone on Saturday.  

Chabot scored five in the bottom of the fifth against Ohlone to emerge from a 3-1 deficit in a 6-4 triumph in the Coast-North.  

The Gladiators earlier scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to take a dramatic 4-3 win over Gavilan. Chelsea Sligh lined an RBI single to center to score Ashley Tarango with the tying run, and then Adrianna Sanchez scored on the throw to end the game.  

Brenna Lopez allowed seven hits and three earned runs to get the pitching win. Sligh highlighted the triumph with a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth to tie it 2-2. Katrya Traylor was also 3 for 3, and is tied for 24th in the state with 38 RBIs. 

Against Ohlone, the Renegades helped Chabot's cause with five errors. Sanchez and Lopez had doubles for Chabot. 

TENNIS 

Trevor Samuda bowed out of the CCCAA Men's Singles Tournament with a loss to Austin Lee of Bakersfield in the first round 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.
