The locomotive train that is the Sedona Red Rock High School track and field team continued to steamroll through the 2010 season as the boys and girls claimed gold in the 3A West Regional Championships on Saturday, May 8.

“This was a great day for our team. We had plenty of outstanding times and for the most part our kids performed well,” said Sedona Head Coach Harry Schneider, who received the 3A West Coach of the Year award.

The Scorpions boys team took first overall, scoring 229 points, almost 100 more than second place Estrella Foothills High School who finished with 132.

For the girls, Sedona took first overall with 206 points, while Estrella Foothills came in second with 175.

This is the fourth West region title in a row for the Scorpions girls and for the boys, it’s redemption after claiming second the last three years.

Perhaps senior Kevin Cox had the most outstanding performance of them all, claiming four gold medals and setting a few school records along the way to add to Sedona’s total of 11 on the season.

Cox won the 100-meter dash with an 11.16 time, took first in the 200-meter dash with a 22.59 time, took first in the 400-meter run with a 50.22 time and set a new school record in the long jump with a 22-foot, 5.25-inch leap.

The 400 time was a school record as well.

“It was a good day for me today,” Cox said on the field while putting his sweat suit back on after he was done competing.

Senior Jesus Rivera wasn’t bad himself, claiming four gold medals as well, three of which were individual and one of which he won with the 4x800-meter relay team who took first overall for Sedona with an 8:36.96 time.

Garrett Debs, Alan Meyers and Brandon Snickers helped Rivera win his fourth gold.

In the 4x800-meter relay, Lydia Mosley, Taylor Gage, Rachel Lillie and Seresun took first overall with a 10:46.06 time and in the high jump, Hope Goimarac took first overall with a 4-foot, 10-inch try.
