Mount Si track and field falls at Skyline….

Back to track now and Mount Si High School’s track and field teams both fell at Skyline yesterday. The Spartan boys took their meet 83-56, and the Sparty girls handed the Wildcats an 80-63 defeat at Skyline High School Stadium in Sammamish.

Jacob Belceto won both sprint races for the Mount Si boys, winning the 100m in 11.28 seconds and the 200m in 23.17. Jackson Stokes took the 1600m, clocking 4:41.54, and also took second in the 400m with a time of just under 53 seconds. Matthew Proctor and Nicholas Basaldua each won a hurdles sprint, with Proctor beating his Wildcat teammate to take the 110m race in a time of 15.53 seconds, and Basaldua taking the 300m in 43.25.

Rounding out the boys’ event wins, Lee Kamp and Michael Bacon both leaped five feet, six inches, and shared the top spot in the high jump.

The Wildcat girls also did well in the sprints, with Sophia Hulet beating her Mount Si teammate Sarah Creighton by a tenth of a second to win the 100m, clocking 13.48 seconds. Creighton came back, though, and took the 200m in a time of 28.11.

Tatum Dalgleish took two events for Mount Si’s girls, winning both the long jump and triple jump; her winning leap in the long jump was 15’ 1 1/2” and the triple jump leap was 31’5”. Kali Barlow took the discus with a toss of 105’11” and Jenae Usselman won the javelin with a throw of 103’11” beating her Mount Si teammate – and runner-up – Riley Ovall.

As noted earlier, the Wildcats will be splitting in several different directions for meets. Most boys entrants will be at the Shoreline Invitational tomorrow, and most girls will be at the Lake Washington Invitational in Kirkland. Distance runners compete tonight at the Brooks Twilight at Liberty High School in Renton, except for the Waskom’s, who will be down in Portland tonight competing at the Nike Jesuit meet.
