Mountain View High’s Rachael Estell, racing in the 100 dash at the CCS finals, finished sixth in the long jump at the state meet.
Spending a second straight day under the searing sun in Clovis this time of year may seem more like a punishment than a reward – unless you’re competing in the state track and field championships.
Mountain View High’s Rachael Estell was pleased to place high enough in the preliminaries of the girls long jump Friday at Buchanan High – where temperatures topped out at 105 degrees – to make the finals. She jumped 19 feet, 2 3/4 inches Saturday to finish sixth, ensuring her reward would include an award.
