Covina junior Aaron Rodriguez got off to a quick and a high start in the pole vault this year, with his 14-00 jump in the early season Covina Five Way meet in February.
The jump was not a complete surprise – he was the Frosh/Soph winner at the SGV Champs last year with a then PR jump of 13-02, and advanced to CIF after a third place finish in the Valle Vista League.
This past week on his home runway in the Northview dual meet – he took it even higher with a 14-09 jump for the win. That jump ranks him equal 43rd All-Time San Gabriel Valley, and it makes him our male Athlete of the Week.
The week saw six more athletes earn All-San Gabriel Valley honors, and nine athletes who had already reached the All-SGV standard improved their marks.
There were new 2019 area leaders in four events:
- 100m – Matthew Hoskins (Sr, Monrovia) – 10.91
- 110H – Zach Reid (Sr, Bonita) – 14.62
- 4 x 400 Relay – South Pasadena – 3:26.23
- High Jump : Matthew Molina – 6-06 (co-leader)
