Orange County track and field leaders to compete in Arcadia Invitational – Orange County Register

The Arcadia Invitational, as usual, will be the largest and most prestigious competition of the high school track and field season.

The competition, which began Friday with a few relays and other events, really gets underway Saturday night with elite-level high school athletes competing at Arcadia High School. Athletes from 36 states and Canada are registered, representing 793 high schools, and a competition record 645 athletes registered.

Orange County athletes registered include:

Sprinters Ava Simos, senior at Corona del Mar, and Justine Wilson, sophomore at Rosary, are entered in the 200. Wilson is Orange County’s leader this season in the 200 with 24.29 seconds. Wilson is also in the field for the 400.

Los Alamitos junior speedster Devin Bragg is in the 100. His 10.69 this season is tied for the fastest time in the county this season at that distance.

Dana Hills junior Evan Noonan in the 3,200. Noonan was the Orange County boys cross country runner of the year for the 2023 season.

Zach Lewis is ready for the shot put and discus. Lewis, a senior at Pacifica, is the county leader in both events — 59 feet, 6.5 inches in the shot put and 179-9 in the discus.

Edison senior Alexa Sheldon is entered in the shot put; she won that event last weekend at the Trabuco Hills Invitational with a county-leading score of 43-11.25. Samantha Chang, a senior at Mission Viejo, is in the recording field. Chang is the county leader there at 147 feet, 5 inches.

Brandon Gorski, a junior at Mater Dei, will likely need his 6-foot-8 county-leading clearance in the high jump to medal in the event at Arcadia. Gorski is also entered in the long jump, for which he is also the county leader with 23-11.75.
