BLYTHE, Calif. - The Palo Verde High School Yellow Jacket track team lost at Imperial last week and continues to look for their initial league win on either the boys' or the girls' side of competition.

The boys narrowly fell at Imperial as the Tigers prevailed by a 65-62 margin while the girls were overwhelmed as the Tiger depth proved to be too much for the Jackets.

The Jacket boys won seven of the 15 contested events including both relays. Tyrell Black ran a leg on each of the winning relays as he teamed with

Markel Noble, Brandon Johnson, and Jose Gayton in the 4 X 100 victory to open the meet then joined Eric Hernandez, Carlos Dorame, and Treshawn Edmond in the 4 X 400 race to conclude the competition.

Black added a victory in the 400-meter race while Noble won the 200-meter dash and chipped in seconds in the long jump and the 100 meters.

DJ Burton won both the high and intermediate hurdle races to score 10 points for the Jackets then added a third place finish in the high jump.

Johnson picked up a third in the 100 meters while Dorame was good for a third in the 400 and Hernandez finished third in the 800-meter run.

Other scoring in the runs had Nick Andrews with a third in the 1600 meters and Nick Richards with a third in the 3200 meters.

The rest of the boys' scoring came in the shot put and the discus where Steven Valdez and Pete Sandoval finished second and third in both events.

The only scoring for the girls came with Ty Johnson thirds in the 200 and 400-meter races while Andrea Garnica and Eliza Tellez finished second and third respectively in the discus and Ty Daniels was second in the shot put and Kennedy Cox finished third in the triple jump.

The Jackets are scheduled to host Holtville tomorrow at Scott Stadium and travel to the Chandler Invitational on Saturday.
