A sad note out of the Elk Grove High School track and field team. Their outstanding hurdler Nick Martinez will have surgery in June on a torn ACL in his right knee. That according to assistant track coach Dallas Broussard. He injured the knee about a month ago.
Last season Martinez placed third in the 300 meter hurdles at the California High School Track and Field Championships. He was the Sac-Joaquin Section champion in that event, plus the 110 meter hurdles.
Martinez has been accepted at Sacramento State and may run track for the Hornets next season, according to Broussard.
