Red Wolves track and field scores well in league meet at Sultan, 3-29

Cedarcrest’s track and field teams made the short trip up to Sultan yesterday to compete in a four-way Cascade Conference meet with Granite Falls, South Whidbey and the host Turks, and despite all the rain, the Red Wolves came out of the competition looking pretty good.

The boys were keyed by a couple big performances in distance races to score a team victory, with 100 points, while the girls fell just short of making it a complete sweep, finishing second with 77 points, just seven points back of winner Sultan.

The 800m and 3200m races were the highlights of the day for the Red Wolves, with top four sweeps in both races. Senior Mitchell Montgomery led the pack in the 800m race, clocking 2:01.20 for the victory in that event, and following him were teammates Preston Buckley (2nd), Quinn Radbourne (3rd) and Keith Griffin (4th). The 3200m group was led by the winning effort of Logan Orndorf; the sophomore ran a time of 10:32.80 to lead a foursome which included Cody Wanichek (2nd), Colton Green (3rd) and Dominic Dams (4th).

Other event wins included the 200m, where senior Matt Erickson ran a winning time of 25.09 seconds; the 4×400 relay of Dallin Candland, Montgomery, Gage Dixon and Alex Zuvich, who led a top-two sweep of that event by the Red Wolves with a top time of 3:50.22, with a foursome of Buckley, Gage Catherman, Radbourne and Griffin taking second in that race; and discus thrower John Soule, who won that event with a toss of 122’. Soule also finished second in the shot put with a throw of 35’11”.

On the girls’ side, junior Allison Bawden was the story yesterday, with two event wins. Bawden cleared 4’6” to win the high jump, and she leaped 30’.5” to take the triple jump crown as well.  A number of runners also won their races as well. These included junior Alesha Cronie in the 200m with a time of 27.35 seconds, senior Tasha Hartwig in the 400m (1:06.45), sophomore Amelia Anderson in the 1600m (5:59.61) and fellow soph Diana Carr in the 3200m (12:30.80).

Junior Molly Hammontree also scored a win in the 300m hurdles, running it in 51.57 seconds.

Top results are after the break, and full results are available here. Cedarcrest travels across the Cascades tomorrow to Yakima for the Don Holder Relays. We’ll have the results for you Sunday here at the SVSJ.
