When the Heritage boys joined Liberty and Freedom in a Bay Valley Athletic League track meet last week, they competed against Liberty and Freedom's frosh-soph squads. However, when it came to the girls activities, the Heritage frosh-soph squad went up against the Liberty varsity in competition and results.
Liberty defeated the Heritage girls 97-34 but lost to the Heritage frosh-soph boys 87-26. In the girls event, Liberty won 10 and Heritage captured four.
Scoring wins for the Heritage girls in the varsity were Natalie Guerrero, leading a sweep in the 400 meters and winning the 200, and Rebecca Kubik-Boyd, heading a sweep in the high jump and the 1600-meter relay.
In the varsity competition, the Liberty girls defeated Freedom 75-61 to raise the Lions record to 3-2. In the boys' race, the Lions entered this week's league action with a 5-0 record after beating Freedom 79-53.
"We've had a good season so far, and we'll try to finish it out on the same note," said Liberty coach John Ambrose. "We had good efforts in the Chico meet last weekend and two of our athletes came home with medals after placing fourth."
In the varsity meet against Freedom, Liberty's Richard Smith doubled up by taking the 1600 and 3200.
Heritage's Brandon Martin was a three-time winner for the frosh-soph team. Martin won the 1600, 800, and pole vault with a personal best of seven feet.
Recording doubles were Liberty's Deon Norford in the 100 and long jump, with Joel Sabatte in the high jump and 110 hurdles.
