Each week, Marana High School senior track and field star Kane Punt draws closer to the goals he set for his final season.

“He’s having a pretty good year,” said Marana assistant coach Matt Romanowski. “He generally finishes first or second in most of the events. He’s running in the low 15s in the high hurdles and is knocking on the door at 6 feet in the high jump. He’s having a pretty good year.”

Romanowski said he doesn’t know what would prevent Punt from competing for a Class 4A Sonoran Region title.

“I haven’t seen a lot of times in our region in the 110 (meter hurdles) faster than his,” Romanowski said. “He’s up there in the 110 and high jump. He can probably place in a couple of other events.”

Punt won the 110 hurdles Wednesday in a four-team meet at Desert View in 15.58 seconds.

He later won the high jump, clearing 5-10. He was fourth in the triple jump (36-0).

Punt’s winning high jump height tied his personal best.

“He was pretty happy with that,” Romanowski said. “His jump at 5-10 was a great jump. I thought he was going to go way beyond that.”

Punt’s wins helped Marana beat host Desert View 86-71, Douglas (67) and Cienega (32).

Marana’s girls team scored 90 to win its meet over Desert View (54), Douglas (54) and Cienega (50).

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
