 Local products Taylor Snaer, Camrenne Genilla and Alyson Schneider were big contributors for the Modesto Junior College women’s track and field team last weekend, May 3-4, during the California Community College Athletics Association Northern California Championships at American River College in Sacramento.

Kainoa Ontai and Blake Gross were part of MJC’s runner-up men’s team (104), which was narrowly edged by DeAnza (112). Delta took seventh with 51 points.

Snaer, a 2023 East Union grad, continued her record-breaking freshman campaign and racked up four NorCal golds.

She set the NorCal record in the 200-meter dash in 22.97 seconds while eclipsing the minimum qualifying time (23.00) for the USA Track & Field Olympic Trials this June in Oregon.

Snaer also won the 100 in (11.35) and was on the winning 4x100 (47.88) and 4x400 (3 minutes, 59.52 seconds) relays.

Alyson Schneider (Manteca High, 2022) ran the anchor leg for the 4x100. She also placed third in the long jump at 17 feet, 4 inches.

Fellow Manteca alumna Camrenne Genilla (2022) took third in the javelin throw (116-0) and second in the heptathlon (4,173 points).
