Boys Varsity Track & Field, Girls Varsity Track & Field · Records Fall At Buckeye Lions Invitational


The Canyon View track and field team continued to shatter school records in just their second full season at the Buckeye Lions Invitational over the weekend. Coach Muhammad Oliver’s team walked away with impressive showings in a number of events in a competitive field.

Sophomore distance runner picked up right where he left off after a strong cross country season, setting school records in both the 1600 and 3200 meter races. Sprinter Xzavier Taylor continued to make his mark on the record book, breaking his own time in the 400 meter dash and helping both the 4×100 and 4×400 meter relay teams set records as well.

On the girls side, junior Madison Jacobs and sophomore Avery Spickler showed they are more than just good basketball players by setting school records in the 800 meter and 1600 meter race. Angelina Thiel also set the school record in both the discus and javelin for the Jaguars.

The track and field team will be back in action on April 14 at Agua Fria High School.
