Wildcats, Red Wolves track and field both record splits in league meets

Time now to wrap up yesterday’s local high school track and field. Both Mount Si and Cedarcrest split their meets yesterday, with the Wildcats hosting Inglemoor and Red Wolves taking on South Whidbey on Whidbey Island.

We begin with Mount Si.

Wildcat girls win, boys fall to Vikings
In Snoqualmie, Mount Si’s girls dominated enroute to a 82-59 win over Inglemoor, while the Wildcat boys, despite strong showings in field and hurdle events, fell to the Vikings 93-51.

On the girls’ side, the throwing events were all Mount Si, as sophomore Abby Triou won two of them and senior Riley Ovall scored a win in the third. Triou took the titles in the shot put with a toss of 30 feet, 10 ½ inches, and also in the discus, where her throw of 99’4” was tops. Mount Si scored a top four sweep in the shot put, with Riley Ovall, Launa Bateman and Graysen Kaess finishing second-fourth in that event for scarlet and gray.

Ovall, a senior, won the javelin, with a toss of 119’8” and leading a top three Mount Si sweep which also included Jenae Usselman, who finished as the runner-up as well in the discus, and Teah Good.

Junior Olivia Henning won three events in yesterday’s meet with Inglemoor for the Wildcats, taking the 100m hurdles (17.80 seconds), high jump (4’6”) and triple jump (31’1”). Her high jump win led a top four Mount Si sweep, with teammates Miranda Jarocki, Hearn Caitlen and Claire Schilperoort finishing second-fourth respectively.

Distance runner Chloe Cosgrove won both the 800m (2:30.22) and 1600m (5:17.56) races for the Wildcats, and distance teammate Hannah Waskom won the 3200m (10:46.64). Rounding things out for the girls, the Mount Si ladies’ 4×200 and 4×400 relay units both won their races; the 4×200 crew consisted of Lauren Gappa, Sarah Creighton, Sophia Hulet and Sarah Panciroli, while the 4×400 unit featured Cosgrove, Gappa, Panciroli and Creighton. Panciroli also won an individual event, with the senior clearing 10 feet to win the pole vault. Gappa took second in that event.

Mount Si’s boys also saw strength in throwing events. Junior Rhett Davis won the discus with a toss of 103’10”, and fellow junior Logan Milks took the javelin with a throw of 152’2”. Matt Proctor and Nick Basaldua both won a pair of events each – Proctor took the 110m hurdles (15.93) and high jump (5’4”), while Basaldua won the 300m hurdles (44.96) and the pole vault (11’6”).

Rounding out the event winners for the MSHS boys, Joe Waskom won the 3200m with a time of 9:18.91 and Mount Si’s boys’ 4×400 relay foursome of Jackson Stokes, Wilson Toft, Sal Passantino and Jay Bang won that race with a time of 3:46.26. Stokes and Passantino also were runners-up in sprints, with Stokes taking second in the 800m and Passantino finishing as the runner-up in the 400m.

Mount Si is at Newport next Wednesday.

CHS tunes up for Yakima with split, the other way
Unlike Mount Si, it was Cedarcrest’s boys who scored a team win yesterday in their Cascade Conference clash with South Whidbey. The Red Wolves won that contest 78-66, while the Falcon ladies rolled to an 82-51 win over the Red Wolves, in the meet held at South Whidbey High School in Langley on Whidbey Island.

Distance events were the headliner for the Red Wolves boys. Senior Ian Fay’s time of 9:46.54 earned him the win in the 3200m and led a top three CHS sweep that included distance teammates Grant Van Valkenburg and Ben Benson. Junior Daniel Murphy won the 1600m (4:56.13) and sophomore Bryce Hefner took the 800m (2:10.88).

Other event winners included senior Duncan Zuvich, who scored a pair of wins – he took the titles in both the pole vault, clearing 11 feet, and in the triple jump, where his leap of 37’10” beat teammate Alec Playstead, who finished as the runner-up in that event. Those two Red Wolves were the lone entrants in that competition.

Senior Ryan Golden’s 18’8” leap earned him the win for CHS in the long jump, and junior Callum Walker led a top three Red Wolve sweep in the 400m with the win in that sprint race (56.45). Josh Klingsheim and Jacob Henry finished second and third in that race for CHS. Senior Gunnar Schultz scored a win in the 300m hurdles, clocking 42.25 seconds, and both Cedarcrest relay teams scored wins. The 4×100 (45.74) unit consisted of Schultz, Golden, Davis Burpee and Alex Parnell, while the 4×400 (3:42.83) crew featured Schultz, Parnell, Golden and Fay.

Rounding it out, Schultz was the runner-up in the discus, while Grant Soule was a runner-up in the shot put.

Meanwhile, the Cedarcrest girls had four event winners. The Red Wolves’ 4×200 relay foursome of Sophie Paradis, Abbie Collinwood, Trinity Campbell and Lauren Miller won that race thanks to South Whidbey’s unit being disqualified. The time for the Red Wolves crew was 1:55.43. Also, senior Judy Amaral won the javelin, with a toss of 109’6”, while teammate Megan Reid took the high jump with a leap of 4’4”. Also, freshman Elsie Dombek’s time of 5:39.90 won her and CHS the 1600m race.

A number of Red Wolves finished as runners-up in other events – these included Amaral in the shot put, Paradis in the pole vault, and Tayla Weaver in two events – the 100m and the long jump.

CHS will get ready to head to Yakima tomorrow to compete in the Don Holder Relays. Sultan is also representing the Cascade Conference in the event, which has drawn teams from around Washington, but this year also will feature the team from Juneau-Douglas in Alaska. We’ll have a full wrap on that for you here on Sunday in the Journal.
