On the right track
Young but talented track tandem has Canyon surging toward regionals
By THOMAS GODLEY
Sophomore Kendra Reinter and freshman Jodi Anderson have yet to reach the depths of their talent.
And that’s scary considering they already have qualified for regionals and etched a place in the Canyon High School record bodes.
Last Thursday at the District 28-4A Track Meet, Reinter leaped a record -setting 18 feet, 4 and 3/4 inches in the long jump. The first-place mark ranks among the top three long jump distances in the San Antonio area for Class 4A and 5A girls.
On Saturday Reinter also ran to a first place finish in the 100-meter hurdles (14.95) and 300 intermediate hurdles (45.38), giving her three JndividuaVjpedals and securing^ busy day at RegtohalsrifrApril 26-27 in San Antonio.
The showing at district also represented the first time a CHS female track athlete has captured four gold medals.
Not to be outdone, Anderson, who at age 15 is a year younger than Reinter, cleared a school-record 5 feet, 6 inches in the high jump — a height which last year would have qualified for the state meet. She also came in just behind
Reinter in both the IOO hurdles (15.2) and the 300 hurdles (45.88).
To top it off, Anderson ran the third leg and Reinter anchored the Cougarette 1,600 meter relay team (with Katie Sprencel, and Kim Parker), which took first place with a regional qualifying time of 4:04.52. Not a bad showing for two athletes less than 22 months removed from Canyon Middle School.
Canyon girls' track coach Joanne Flores can only smile at the future of her budding stars. Right now she believes the track prodigies have room for improvement. A strong work ethic on their part is the main reason.
“It’s exciting to think they will be back for two and three more years,” Flores said. “They are having an incredible season. There's a buzz around the school after what they accomplished
Ire type of Mhlete^whoS ^ tffiy looting lo take it a step farther.”
Flores is also looting forward to the prospects of younger sisters Sydni Anderson and Lauren Reinter joining the program down the road. The two seventh grade track stars are headed along the same successful path at CMS.
At the moment, however, the focus is on Kendra and Jodi advancing beyond regionals
