The Tigers went up against 5A schools last Friday and had a great day, he added.
"The girls tied with Timberline, while the boys did not field a full squad because of some college visitations by some athletes but did have quite a few season bests," the coach said as he also congratulated Cristobal for breaking the school's 100-meter record.
This Friday, the Tigers travel to Mountain View High School in Meridian for the Bandana Invitational.
