Half a dozen Valley high school track and field athletes earn trips to state out of first-day district action

Track and field was busy, too, yesterday, as postseason district track meets started.

Five members of Mount Si High School’s boys and girls’ track and field teams earned trips to the state 4A meets in Tacoma next weekend after qualifying at the SeaKing meet yesterday in Seattle.

Two of them made it by winning their events. Joe Waskom won the boys’ 1600 meter run clocking 4:14.35, and Abby Triou won the girls’ discus with a toss of 113 feet. Two other girls also made state in jumping events. Karlie Stewart made it with a third-place showing in the high jump clearing five feet, three inches, and Tatum Dalgleish cleared just over 16 feet to take third in the long jump.

Rounding it out on the boys’ side, Roy Bang earned a trip to state in the shot put, with a toss of 47 feet, 10 3/4 inches. He finished second in the event. Teammate Dillon Garnes tossed his shot put 43′ 7 3/4″ and took fifth but did not make it as just the top three finishers in each event earned state berths.

Mount Si wraps up district action tomorrow.

Krause punches lone CHS state berth on day one of Northwest 2A meet: Cedarcrest girls’ senior Lauren Krause earned the lone Red Wolve state berth in the first day of competition at the Northwest District 2A track meet at Lakewood High School in Arlington yesterday. She took third in the triple jump with a clearance of 33 feet, 10 1/2 inches. Freshman teammate Julia Luoto came close also, but fell just short, finishing sixth in the high jump clearing 4’10”. The top four boys and girls placers earned state berths. The rest of the action is tomorrow at Lakewood.
