   Ram and Rambelle Track and Field hosted the David Noble Relays April 9 at home.
   Both teams took first place overall at the meet.“We always want to win our home meet and they had to fight for it,” Head Coach James Reid said.
The Rams’ 4x400 meter relay team won the event with a provisional mark of three minutes and 10 seconds. The 4x400 relay team of Luis Perez, Lance Andrews, Ayodesi Adedokyn and Anthony Yancy were the third different rotation to clock a provisional time for the Rams.
Perez took home first in the 400 meter dash with a provisional time of 46.90 seconds while Andrews followed in second with a provisional time of 48.35 seconds. “I’m the guy where if I’m on the track with you, I can beat you,” senior sprinter Luis Perez said.
   The 4x100 meter relay team of Edward Simmons, Yancy, Landon Meek and Deondre Willshire took home first for the Rams with a provisional time of 40.78 seconds which ranks fourth in Division II. Senior thrower Asrael Arad threw a new seasonal best in javelin at the relays with a throw of 209 feet and one inch. Arad’s throw is currently eighth best in Division II. Junior Emma Thompson won the women’s javelin with a throw of 122 feet and four inches while teammates Morgan Rogers and Kami Norton took home second and fourth, respectively.
For the Belles, sophomore jumper Kaitlin Lumpkins picked up her first provisional mark in her individual win by clearing a jump of five feet and six inches. Sophomore Norton took home third in the same event before winning the women’s 110 meter hurdles with a time of 14.11 seconds and placing second in the 400 meter hurdles.
   In pole vault, the Belles won five of the top six spots in the event. Junior Celsey Randolph took first place as she cleared a provisional height of 12 feet and one and a half inches in pole vault. Senior distance runner Candida Chairez took home third with a time of 18 minutes and 17 seconds with teammate Claudia Ramirez four seconds behind in the women’s 5,000 meter run. Sophomore Kristin Wright won the women’s 800 meter run with a personal best of two minutes and 19 seconds.
