RCC Record


Former state track and field champion looks to break long-standing record

By Daniel Hernandez
It has been 33 years since the Riverside City College high jump record was set and a former Division 1 high school state champion has his eyes set on breaking that record.

Darius Hill, one of track and field’s newest recruits from Vista Murrieta high school, joined the team with an impressive resume. Hill placed first in every high jump event he competed in throughout the 2021 season, including the postseason.

“He graduated from my high school … and if you didn’t know, Vista Murrieta is a really big track and field powerhouse,” coach CJ Alumbres said. “(I’m) really excited to get a quality athlete like him because he is really coachable.”

Setting the Pace

By Hayden Kulick
The Riverside City College track and field team is continuing their trend of consistency as they competed at the RCC Open on March 18.

Joshua Hornsby, RCC football wide receiver turned track athlete, had a dominant performance in the 110-meter hurdles. Hornsby had a firm lead throughout the entire race, crossing the finish line in 14.38 seconds and .5 of a second ahead of second place.

“We have a plan and we’re executing it, we told him to run under 14.5 and he ran 14.3,” hurdles coach Nanyo Segura said. “We are on schedule to peak at the right time and hopefully run sub-14 at the state meet.”

The benefits of playing at a community college

By Mya Castro
Playing at a Division I university is perceived as being the only way to succeed at the next level in athletics and anything less is not worth it.

The opposite is true.

It’s a dream for high school athletes to earn a full ride scholarship to a Division I university and play the sport they love. I know it was mine for a while. Still, some athletes don’t have that privilege and feel their only option is to play at a community college. It leaves them feeling defeated but it’s also important to remember that playing sports at a community college does not make you less of an athlete.
