Capping a strong Santa Rosa Junior College track season, some of the team’s top athletes earned Big 8 All-Conference honors.
Leading the group is Lea Butler. All-American in the pole vault, Butler was all-conference in the long jump, as well as the pole vault. She is out of Rancho Cotate High.
Two other SRJC women were all-conference. Allison Bricker, a Rincon Valley Christian graduate, made it in the 400 meter hurdles. Tori Dwyer, out of Sonoma Valley High, was all-conference in the steeplechase.
On the SRJC men’s side, Herbie Polk, from Maria Carrillo, was all-conference in the 400 meters. Cristian Nazarek, from Santa Rosa High, earned his honor in the 10,000 meters. Jon Ahnberg, also from Santa Rosa High, made all-conference in the steeplechase.
To earn all-conference athletes needed to finish in the top three of an event at the Big 8 championships.
