EV’s Fisher continues strong season at Pasco invite

We are coming into the time of the spring track season where numbers begin to pop.

As the weather warms up (IF the weather warms up), the personal-best marks will start to lower. With throwers, don’t be surprised to see those bests be substantially changed. It’s not uncommon to see athletes surpass their previous best by a significant margin.

But before diving into where area throwers and jumpers are as the season nears its midpoint, it’s worth noting an exceptional performance on the track at last weekend’s Pasco Invitational.

East Valley Rodrick Fisher continues to have a stellar spring. Competing at last weekend’s Pasco Invitational, the senior lowered his personal best time in the 100 meters, turning in a 10.62 – the second-fastest time in the state this season at any classification. But he was out-leaned at the tape by Hanford’s Joseph Gauthier, who turned in a 10.61.

Fisher returned the favor in the 200 meters, running the fastest time in the state so far this season: 21.67 seconds, holding off Gauthier’s 21.81.
