This has been a season of personal records (PR) in spite of the slow start we’ve had this spring. If you follow the links below, you will see how our student athletes have been faring lately and current standings in district. Our athletes marks have been consistently improving with a large majority setting personal records at recent meets. This is very encouraging considering how hard they have been training. As the season wraps up, the training will wind down and our athletes will benefit from competing with fresh legs.

There are two ways our athletes can qualify to compete in the state championships. The first way is to win their event at the district championship meet held in Cashmere on May 16th and the second is to meet the state qualifying standard. Below is a link to those standards.
On Wednesday, we traveled to Peshastin to compete in the CTL meet. This meet was not a state qualifying meet but, was a nice preview of what we can expect at districts. We had two CTL champions. On the boys side, Bert Mendivil won the triple jump with a jump of 40’3.5”. It was nice to see Bert jumping so well and peaking near the end of the season. On the girls side, Elly Collins won the 100 M hurdles with a time of 15.90 seconds. It was a very exciting race between her and her long-time rival Renea Taylor from Okanogan. The photo above captured how close this race was!
Other athletes who are posting marks and times near qualifying standards are:
- Matea Ivory and Molly Oswald in the 100M
- Matea Ivory in the 200M
- Kyle Jackson and Molly Oswald in the 400M
- Ezequiel Campos and Teagan Silva in the 800 M
- Christopher Knight in the 3200 M
- Girls 4×100 M Relay consisting of Matea Ivory, Lucy Bordner, Molly Oswald, Elly Collins, Aliyah Villasenor, and Hailee Huddleston.
- Hailee Huddleston in the Javelin
- Elly Collins in the Pole Vault
- Bert Mendivil in the Long Jump
We had nearly 60 athletes on our team this year and I wish I could mention them all. Whether they are close to meeting the state standards or not, all have worked incredibly hard. Coaches have asked a lot of our athletes and they all came to practice every day with great attitudes and ready to go to work.
