Outstanding Field Event Performer: Rhesa Foster

Grade: Freshman

School: Clovis North

Raging rookie: Evoked early comparisons to the most successful female track and field athlete in Central Section history — Clovis' Jenna Prandini (13 section and five state golds from 2008-11) — by placing first, second and third in the long jump, 100 high hurdles and 100-meter dash while scoring a section Masters meet-leading 24 points among females. She then placed third in the state long jump. Her season-best long jump of 19-101/2 is fourth in section history, No. 17 for the season nationally and No. 2 nationally for a freshman.

Determined to succeed: "When you have that much talent, when you're really good at several events, it's hard to focus on one event. But she'll do whatever is asked for the team. Every day, she comes focused, determined and ready to work. She will not let anything get in her way to accomplish her goals. She fouled on a couple big (long) jumps. She's wanting to go past that 20-foot mark, and she has the ability. She's a great competitor." — Broncos coach Rich Brazil.
