Getting out of the blocks is usually not a strength for Whitney Renfro.

Wednesday it propelled the Chico senior to regionals in the 300 hurdles.

Renfro broke out of the blocks and blasted her way to the 11/12-2A area title in the race, running a 50.64 at Springtown’s Porcupine Stadium.

“One of my struggling points is getting out of the blocks and to the first hurdle. [Wednesday] it saved me,” Renfro said. “My last 100 was not as strong as usual. I can do better.”

Renfro won by more than a full second over Valley View’s Mackenzie Roane, who ran 51.97 for second place.

Renfro will return to Springtown April 28-29 to run at regionals for a fourth straight year.

“It’s cool. It makes all the hard work I’ve put in and my coaches’ work worth it,” Renfro said.

She hopes to cut more time off to give her a shot at advancing.

“I’ve got a good shot at getting to finals,” Renfro said. “I have to work super hard to get my time down.”

Renfro will also be running at regionals on Chico’s 4×200 and 4×400 relay teams.

The 4×200 team of Renfro, Adafne Chavez, Marilyn Amador and Britton Petty ran 1:53.4 to finish second.

“All of our handoffs were good. We were able to pull away from third,” Renfro said.

In the 4×400, the Lady Dragons quartet of Chavez, Petty, Kiley Marburger and Renfro finished third in 4:23.26.

“We had our best time of the year,” Renfro said.

Chico’s Haley Pollard took second in the pole vault, clearing 7-9.
