CAC won both Women's and Men's Region One Championship this past week. Women scored 288 points to beat Mesa (152 points) and Pima (147 points). The men (235 points) had a closer meet only outdistancing Pima by 15 points. Mesa was a distant third with 182 points.
The women set three Region One records (Hammer 61.71m, Javelin 49.19m, and Shot 16.90m.). The shot record set by Portious Warren is also the NJCAA Record by 2 feet (55' 5").
"It seems everyone came out of Regionals healthy and competing at their highest levels of the year. We hope to take this into the NJCAA meet and come home with some good performances" commented Coach Dougherty.
The men and women leave for Kansas on Monday the 15th for the NJCAA meet.
