 BRIDGEPORT – Nearly 50 Mustangs and Fillies, including state veterans and school record-holders, will give the high school varsity track and field team a large and well-spread representation at meets this year.
Coach Mike Selle said he has state veterans in David Ochoa, Nicanor Palacios, Jenny Gomez, Emily Saucedo, Maura Morales, Jasmine LeDuc, Lupe Cancino, Karina Craig, and Anayeli Trejo.  
LeDuc set the school record in the long jump last year with a leap of 15 feet, 4.75 inches.
Palacios holds the second-best school time in the 300-meter hurdles and third-best in the 110M hurdles.
Ochoa has Bridgeport’s fourth longest shot put distance and sixth in discus.
Junior Lesly Velasco is another one to watch. Velasco ran the school’s best time in the 300m hurdles and second-best in the 100M hurdles.
“Ronaldo Ubaldo and Itzel Muniz are two athletes that should be going to state this year as well,” Selle said. “They have so much talent and all in all, they should be participating at state.”
The Mustangs lost two of their state stars, distance runner Oren Cox and girls’ throwing specialist, Jordan Peart to graduation last year.
The Mustangs were scheduled to host the Bridgeport Jamboree, Thursday, March 16, and compete in the Oroville Invitational on Saturday, March 18.
Bridgeport will travel to Ephrata for the Ray Cross Invitational next Saturday, March 25.
