Track and field takes second place in conference
The Palomar women’s track and field team finished this season taking second place in the conference.
The team was a little short-staffed with only 12 women participating.
“We’ve done great this year,” Head Coach Jennifer Williams said. “I think if we would have had two or three more girls we would have won conference. We just needed more bodies.”
Even though there were few women on the team, they still put everything they had into their season. Williams said she was able to send 10 women to the regional meet held on May 5 at San Diego Mesa College.
“The girls all wanted to win; you could feel that at conference,” Williams said. “I think they were okay with second place, but it left a bitter taste in their mouth; they definitely wanted that win.”
