More Valley high school track and field athletes make state

Mount Si and Cedarcrest High School’s track and field teams rounded out their state delegations yesterday, both schools qualifying more athletes to this coming weekend’s state 2A and 4A high school track and field meets in Tacoma.

Cedarcrest qualified athletes in six more girls’ events yesterday at the Northwest 2A District meet at Lakewood High School in Arlington. The group was led by Lilly Bradley, who took second and pole vault and earned a trip to state in the event; she cleared nine feet, eight inches. Heather Olson finished second as well in the long jump, and grabbed a state berth in that competition. Her clearance was 16′ 6 3/4″. Kiley Frank took second in the 200m dash, with a time of 26.33 seconds and also earned a trip to Tacoma. The top four finishers in each event earned state berths.

Grace McKenzie took fourth in the 100m, clocking 13.21 seconds, Sydney Smith did the same in the 300m hurdles with a time of 47.96 seconds, and the Red Wolve 4×200 girls’ relay also made it, taking third in that race with a time of 1:46.59.

There was one boys’ qualifier as well from Cedarcrest out of the meet, and that came yesterday in the javelin, where Daniel Enciso-Navarro tossed it 157’1″ and took fourth. The above mentioned athletes join girls’ jumper Lauren Krause, who qualified in a jumping event on Wednesday in the first day of action.

Waskom, Triou add more state events: Both Joe Waskom and Abby Triou earned trips to state out of opening day action on Wednesday in the SeaKing District meet in Seattle, after both won events that day for Mount Si. But the two Wildcats weren’t done, with both again delivering state berths yesterday.

Waskom won the 3200m boys’ race to go along with his 1600m run win on Wednesday. The senior clocked 9:16.40 to take yesterday’s race, and will be joined by teammates Blake Woodford, who took second in the 400m with a time of 50.03 seconds, and the Wildcat boys’ 4×400 relay, who finished third with a time of 3:26.25. Woodford, Ryan Hurley, Murphy McDowell and Spencer Sprague are Mount Si’s 4×400 relay foursome and they will all be competing next weekend. Roy Bang will also rep the Wildcat boys, after he qualified Wednesday in the shot put. The top three finishers in the events made state.

Triou off her win in the discus Wednesday took third in the shot put last night, with a toss of 34’3″. Jenae Usselman also made state, taking second in the javelin with a throw of 116’2″. Those two join jumpers Karlie Stewart and Tatum Dalgleish, both of whom qualified Wednesday.

The state meets start on Wednesday down in Tacoma.
