With the Imperial Valley League's track and field season right around the corner, one of the strongest teams, if not the favorite to take it all, could be the Central Union High boys team.
The Central boys have been dominating their competition and Saturday came five points short of winning the Central Relays, taking second place behind Eastlake High School 68-64.
Spearheading the Spartans' assault has been 18-year-old senior captain J.D. Gaddis. At the Central Relays, he took second place in the 110-meter hurdles in 14.9 seconds and second in the high jump with a leap of 6 feet. His height was good enough to help Central win the team portion of the high jump.
