Valley duo named to NCAA Division II all-West Region track and field team by college coaches

News from college track and field today. A pair of Mount Si High School alums have been named to a national postseason all-region list for NCAA Division II women’s track and field.

Concordia-PDX junior Karlie Hurley, from North Bend, and St. Martin’s senior Liz Larson, from Snoqualmie, were today named to the U.S. Track and Field/Cross Country Coaches
Association’s All-West Region team. Both had to earn a top five result in a particular event in the region in order to earn the recognition. Hurley got hers in the triple jump on the strength of her Concordia school record-breaking 39’8″ clearance in the event this past weekend at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference meet in Monmouth, OR, in only her second time ever doing the event as a collegian. Hurley is among the top 30 in the nation in the event off that one jump last weekend.

Larson won the hammer toss at the GNAC meet this past weekend, and she has been dominant in the event all season, ranking currently in the top 10 nationally. She’ll be competing in the NCAA Division II meet later this month.

The two are among over 1,800 NCAA Division II track and field athletes who received recognition in the announcement which was made this afternoon at the association’s offices down in New Orleans.

Both are 2015 Mount Si HS grads. Congrats to both of you from us here at the SVSJ!
