A dominating day for Wildcat track and field against Totems, 3-28

The Mount Si High School track and field teams dominated in a big way in their meet last Thursday against the Sammamish Totems at Sammamish High School in Bellevue.

There were a lot of event wins both for the Wildcat boys and girls, as Mount Si athletes had big performances all over the place in the meet.

On the girls’ side, it was a big day for Karlie Hurley. The junior won four events. She took the 200m, clocking 26.5 seconds, and also won the 400m (1:00.7) and long jump (16’ 2 ¼”). Hurley in addition teamed up with Jesse Guyer, Hannah Richmond and Sydney Leonard to help the Wildcats win the 4x100m relay in a time of 52.7 seconds.

Leonard also won a pair of events individually in addition to her relay win; she took two of three throwing events, winning both the shot put (30’10”) and discus (105’1”). Andrea Suttle took the third throwing event, the discus, with a toss of 93’3”. All three wins led top three sweeps for the Wildcats, with Heather Vanourek, Sarah Brevick and Kristen Kasel all recording top three finishes in the various throwing disciples.

Guyer won the 100m with a time of 13 seconds, and also helped in the Wildcats’ 4×400 relay win; she teamed with Richmond, Abbey Bottemiller and Mackenzie Hutchison to take that race, with a time of 4:18.9.

Bottemiller won the 800m with a time of 2:31.9, leading a top three Mount Si sweep in that event, and 800m runner-up Bailey Scott won the 1600m with a time of 5:57.4.

There were also top three Wildcat sweeps in both hurdles events, with Ashley Jackson taking the 300m (49.1) and Sarah Miller recording top spot in the 100m (17.1).

Rounding out the girls’ event winners, Elizabeth Johanson took the 3200m (14:23.7); Daniele Curley led a top three sweep in the pole vault, winning that with a clearance of 9’, and Rachel Wachtendonk and Curstyn Williamson tied for top spot in the high jump, with leaps of 4’.

The boys were no less dominant. Jimbo Davis took four events, just like Hurley did with the girls. The senior, bound for Nevada to play football this fall, won the 100m (11.3 seconds) and 200m (23.2), and also grabbed the pole vault crown with a clearance of 12’. Davis also teamed with Keldon Back, Preston Banks and Devin Sharps to help the Wildcat 4×400 relay crew win that race, in a time of 3:35.1.

Sharps (800m, 2:07.2) and Banks (400m, 51.4) also won individual events, and Jon Proctor won a pair himself. He took the high jump with a leap of 5’10” and triple jump with a leap of just over 38 feet.

There were top three sweeps for Mount Si in both the 1600m run and in the javelin, with Tom Kirby taking the 1600m run with a time of 4:51.1 and Ryan Harmon winning the javelin with a throw of 130’11”.

Rounding out the boys’ event winners were Peter Link in the discus, with a toss of 112’2”, and Brad Stevens in the 110m hurdles, with a time of 15.6 seconds.

Mount Si will be home this Thursday for a dual meet with Juanita, then will hit the road this weekend for the Pasco Invitational east of the Cascades in the Tri-Cities. This meet has drawn a large field of teams from all over the Northwest, including schools from the Portland, Spokane, Boise and Coeur D’Alene areas. Among the teams expected there include Kingco 3A rival Interlake and Kingco 4A teams Woodinville and Garfield.
