MODESTO With a solid all-around showing both on the track and in the field events, Bret Harte High School won the girls' championship of the Ceres Invitational on Saturday at Modesto Junior College.

The Bullfrogs scored 68 points for a comfortable margin over Florin of Sacramento, which has 50 in the 32-team event.

Bret Harte's individual winners were Germaine Engstrom in the 300-meter low hurdles in 47.5 seconds and Krystal Thomson in the discus throw at 114 feet, 8 inches.

Engstrom also was third in the 100 low hurdles (16.3), third in the triple jump (32-1 1/4) and second in the 4x100 relay (51.6) with Tiana Johnson, Emily Self, and Shamika Smith.

Gia Cizmich finished second in both the 800 (2:29.8) and 1,600 (5:34.9), Thomson was third in the shot put (33-4), Smith was fourth in the long jump (14-4) into a stiff wind, and Johnson was fifth in the 200 (27.8) and 400 (1:01.4).

The weather was rough.

"The wind and the dust were unbelievable," Bret Harte coach Hal Clements said. "And toward the end of the day, it started to rain."

The Bret Harte boys finished ninth with 21 points. Sheldon of Elk Grove was the champion with 79.

Robert Messer and Josh Linker finished 2-3 in the pole vault (12-0, 10-6) in difficult conditions,

Dominic Smith was third in the 200 (23.8) and Erik Aardal was fifth in the 3,200 (10:27).

Clements is awaiting word of which of his athletes have qualified to compete in the Woody Wilson Invitational on Friday at the University of California at Davis.
