Ochoa captures four throws in Central Coast Invitational

SBCC's Alana Ochoa had a stellar collegiate debut on Friday as she won four throwing events in the Central Coast Invitational women's track and field meet on a rainy day at Cuesta College.

The freshman from San Marcos High placed first in the hammer (35.49 meters), the javelin (33.87), the discus (38.55) and the shot put (10.28). Her hammer mark of 116 feet, 5¼ inches was sixth on the Vaqueros' all-time list and her discus heave of 126-5¾ was No. 7.

Andrea Mueller was first in the long jump (5.14) and second in the high jump (1.50). Madison Blaes won the triple jump at 8.66 meters. Ellie Martin was second in the shot put (9.90).

Cuesta won the four-team open competition that featured two Community College teams, Cuesta and SBCC. The Cougars totaled 124 points and the Vaqueros had 112.

Kiley Rutledge posted two seconds in the 200 and 400. Cuesta's Kirsten Purcell won both sprints with a photo finish over Rutledge in the 200 (27.71 to 27.86).

SBCC returns to action on Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Soka Invitational in Aliso Viejo.
