Santa Clarita’s Allyson Felix Wins 400 At National Meet

khts_sportsSanta Clarita’s Allyson Felix won the 400 at the U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships meet in Eugene, Ore.

She is the reigning world champion in the 200 and is eligible to race in both events at the world championships later this summer.

She won the 400 in 50.40 seconds, but she is undecided if she will compete in both events at the world meet in South Korea in August.

Chris Low, a College of the Canyons freshman and graduate of Canyon High School, was sixth in 800 in the U.S. Junior Outdoor Track and Field Championship meet and earned a spot on the Junior All-America team.

The top-six runners were selected to the All-America team.

He finished the 800 in 1 minute, 51.58 seconds at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. Immanuel Hutchinson, a senior at San Jacinto High School, won the 800 in 1:48.56.

Valencia High graduate Jasmine Hall was eighth in the junior heptathlon.

In hockey, the Kings traded forward Ryan Smyth to the Edmonton Oilers for winger Colin Fraser and a draft pick.

The Smyth trade comes on the heels of the Kings trading Wayne Simmonds to the Philadelphia Flyers for their captain, Mike Richards.

In the NHL draft, the Kings selected goalie Chris Gibson from Finland with their first pick. The Kings did not have a first-round draft pick and took Gibson with the 49th overall selection in the second round.

In baseball, the Dodgers scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth and beat the Angels, 3-2. Tony Gwynn Jr. knocked in the game-winner with two outs and snapped the Dodgers’ three-game losing streak.

In other games, the Diamondbacks lost to the Tigers, 8-3, the Rockies lost to the Yankees, 6-4, the Padres beat the Braves, 4-1, and the Giants beat the Indians, 3-1.

The A’s lost to the Phillies, 3-1, the Mets beat the Rangers, 8-5, and the Mariners beat the Marlins, 2-1 in 10 innings.

The Orioles beat the Reds, 7-5, the Red Sox beat the Pirates, 4-2, the Rays outslugged the Astros, 14-10, the Nationals beat the White Sox, 2-1, the Royals doubled up on the Cubs, 6-3, the Brewers beat the Twins, 6-2, and the Blue Jays shut out the Cardinals, 5-0.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
