WYNN WINS HAMMER THROW AT AVC INVITATIONAL

LANCASTER - Brittani Wynn won her third meet of the season in the hammer throw for the Marauder women's track and field team, Friday afternoon at Antelope Valley College.

Wynn tossed a 136-04 to finish first ahead of Briana Gaipa (132-11) and Alison Meegan (129-04) of Cuyamaca College. Cuyamaca finished second, third, fifth and sixth in the event. The next best AVC thrower was Robyn Webb (109-08) as she finished 11th.

Wynn (111-06) finished sixth in the discus and 10th in the shot put (31-04.75). Webb was 13th in the shot put (24-04.50) and Anna-Helene Augusta (105-03) was eighth in the discus.

Middle distance runner and top-ranked 800 meter runner in the state, Angela Wilson, cruised again winning the event in a personal best time of 2:15.96, despite not even being pushed. The closest runner to Wilson was Diani Ellis of College of the Canyons who crossed the line nearly eight seconds later (2:23.62). Wilson has yet to have a close race all season.

"Being that this was a home meet I was very anxious. Also, since it was a beautiful day there's was lots of competition coming so I was excited but jittery," Wilson said. "Given those two factors I knew I had no excuse not to hit a great time, let alone a PR. Although it was not the time I was initially going for, it feels great to PR. With no meet this week I am looking forward to getting in a solid week of training and I'm eager to see what lays ahead for the rest of the season."

Wilson expected to get competition from Orange Coast College's Bethani Heising who has run 2:18.00 this year and Glendale College's Giselle Masedo who's best time this seaosn is 2:21.87. Masedo finished third at 2:23.73, but Heising faded and finished seventh (2:29.06).

AVC's Krista Beck ran her best time of the season in the 3000 meter run, finishing second at 11:10.80. Her previous best time this season was 11:16.78. Jenessa Reyes won the event (10:54.76).
