The Lady Tigers took 5th this past weekend at the 2017 CCCAA State Championships hosted by American River College in Sacramento, CA.  The women started the meet off great with Kori Sprague (Elsinore HS) winning the women's hammer with a state leading mark of 53.19m/174'6 and Jordaine Simmons (Mission Viejo HS) coming in eighth in the hammer to give the Tigers eleven points in the event.  The other throws also contributed points to the team with Mailani Thomas (Great Oak HS) coming in fifth in the discus and Ca'May Stocker coming in sixth in the women's shot.  The field events continued to be a bright spot for the lady Tigers when sophomore Madison McPeak (Martin Luther King HS) won the pole vault with a clearance of 3.53m/ 11'7 and fellow sophomore Angela Griffin (Great Oak HS) finished seventh.  In the high jump Danielle Spargur came in second with a jump of 1.7m/5'7 which tied for first but received second due to misses.  On the track the Tigers had Sarah Hollis come in fifth in the 3000m Steeplechase.  In the sprints both relays scored with the 4x1 relay earning a seventh place finish with a time of 48.74 and the 4x4 team finished sixth with time of 3:55.97.  The Lady Tigers also dominated the hurdles with Madeline Corner (Carter HS) and Dehjiah Joseph (Vista Murrieta HS) coming in third and fourth respectively in the 400m Hurdles.  The women had a great meet finishing with two state champions, five All-Americans, and 12 All-State honors.
