Despite a narrow 69-67 loss to Sea View League rival Capistrano Valley in Wednesday’s dual meet action, two of San Clemente’s top athletes enjoyed standout efforts.
Tritons senior Herbert Gamboa won the 100 in a wind-legal lifetime best of 10.64. That is the fastest wind-legal fully automated time run in the county this season and is the sixth fastest in the state.
Gamboa’s time is tied for the 10th fastest wind-legal effort in county history. It is also the second best in school history, trailing only Tim Martin’s 1991 time of 10.56.
Gamboa also captured the 200 in a wind-legal lifetime best of 21.78. That time is the second best wind-legal time in the county this season, trailing only Mater Dei senior Austin Hazel (21.62). It is currently the fifth best wind-legal time in the state.
Also, Tritons senior Quaid Vuncannon recorded a lifetime best throw of 188 feet, seven inches to finish first in the discus. Vuncannon, who is the school’s all-time discus record holder, cuurently has the second best throw in the county and the fifth best throw in the state.
