Off and running

Amador Valley High graduate Darnell Roberson bursts from the starting blocks in the boys' 400 meters at the Golden West Invitational track and field meet at Edwards Stadium in Berkeley on June 9. Roberson finished sixth in the event. Roberson had a memorable senior year with the Dons, as he helped the Amador Valley 1,600 relay team take first place at the North Coast Section Meet of Champions and finish third at the California Interscholastic Federation state championships.
