Ripon’s girls team locked up its outright claim of the Trans-Valley League championship on Thursday, dusting the field in the league final at Riverbank High.

The Indians accumulated 190.33 points, and Hilmar was the closest with 106.7.

Meanwhile, the Ripon boys squad earned a share of the title with Hughson by winning the meet. The Indians outscored Hughson, 163-121.

The postseason continues next Wednesday and Friday in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V meet at Weston Ranch High. The top three placers in each event at the TVL final qualify for divisionals along with anyone else who hits at-large standards.

Annie Wild continued her dominance in the distance events, taking first in the 800-meter run (2 minutes, 27.08 seconds), 1,600 (5:23.10) and 3,200 (12:06.70). She added another win with her participation in the 4x400 relay. Ripon’s quartet also included Jenna Skavdahl, Emily Paxton and Claire Morris, and clocked a time of 4 minutes, 23.01 seconds.

Gabby Delgado doubled in the throws, setting a personal record in both the shot put (34 feet, 10 inches) and discus (109-09).

Skavdahl won the 400 in 1:01.56. She’s also a Section qualifier in the 800 (second) and 1,600 (third). Jade Thommes won the pole vault (8-0).

Freshman Starla Skiles was another key all-around contributor, taking third in the 200, third in the 400 and second in the 300 hurdles. She aided the winning 4x100 team (52.42), which included Rylee Agbayani-Duenas, Olivia Maragos and Paxton.

Anthony Sausedo blazed to a new personal record of 15.12 in winning the 110-meter hurdles. He also won the 300 hurdles (40.59), took second in the 400 and was part of the winning 4x100 (44.43) with Jaden Hamilton, Norberto Quintero and Jack Manning.

Hamilton and Quintero teamed with Devin Fitzpatrick and Eric Guevara to win the 4x400 relay in 3:34.46. Manning (100, 11.26), Quintero (200, 22.64) and Hamilton (pole vault, 12-0) each won an individual event, as well. Quintero is the 100 runner-up, Hamilton took third in the 400 and Guevara second in the pole vault.
