Mead Boys and Bellarmine Girls Win Washington State Track Championships

[ad_1]

Mead High School of Spokane, a legendary distance-running powerhouse, found a new way to win another title at the 2009 Washington State Track & Field Meet. The Panthers had exactly one individual champion-Keith Webber in the pole vault-but managed to score points in the hurdles and field events to earn 49 points and the 4A big school title as 3 other schools-Kent Meridian, Central Kitsap and Todd Beamer- all tied for runner-up with 34 apiece.

Duran Ward of Todd Beamer was a double winner in the 100 and 200 and Todd Beamer won the 4 x 100 relay, but it was not enough to carry Todd Beamer to the 4A title. Shane Moskowitz of Central Kitsap was a double winner in the 800 and 1600, but it was not enough to carry Central Kitsap to the 4A title. Joe Zimmerman of Lewis and Clark set a new state meet record with a 208-04 effort in the gavelin.

Bellarmine's Sarah Hartwell, Shaquana Logan, Midori Starks and Kelly Jacka won both the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relays, Jacka also won the 200 and Logan won the 100 hurdles to carry Bellarmine Prep to the Girls' 4A title with 56 points.

Andrea Geubelle of Curtis helped her team become runner-up by winning the 100-meter dash in 11.87, the long jump in 19-04 and the triple jump in 40-11.75. Kayla Stueckle of Emerald Ridge ran 42.13 in the 300 hurdles to set a new state meet record. Baylee Mires of Mead doubled in the 800 and 1600.

In the boys 3A competition, Andrew Kimpel led North Central to the title by winning the 3200 in 9: 08.39. North Central's Ben Johnson was 2nd in the 3200, and North Central finished 2-3-4 in the 1600 with Kimpel, Leon Dean and Johnson. That is called depth in the distance, and led to a state title for the Indians of Spokane.

Michael Miller of Mt. Rainier was a double winner in the 800 and 1600. Robert Hintz of Bellevue set a new state meet record with a throw of 211-00 in the gavelin.

Rainier Beach High School clobbered the competition to win the girls' 3A championship with 65 points. The Vikings' Dyneeca Adams won the 400 in 56.89, Ariele Reeves won the 300 hurdles in 43.60 and both Adams and Reeves joined Charnay Combs and Ta Pri Nelthrope in winning both the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relays. The 4 x 200 effort of 1: 39.49 established a new state meet record. In other 3A events, Germe Poston of Franklin Pierce was a double winner in the 100 and 200.

Lynden set a new state meet record in the 4 x 400 boys' 2A competition to win the title with 45 points. Wes Chamberlain of Ephrata set a new record in the pole vault and Nelson Westlin of Sehome set a new record in the discus.

The individual story in the 2A meet was Selah's Brett Blanshan, who set a new record by winning the 100 in 10.60 (the fastest time of the day in all divisions), won the 200 in 21.70 and anchored Selah's winning 4 x 100 relay team. Shayne Moore of Blaine, which was the team runner-up, doubled in the 110 and 300 hurdles. Miles Coats of River Ridge doubled in the high jump and triple jump.

The grils' 2A met was all about freshman Cherish Morrison of Blaine. All Morrison did was win the 100, 200 and 400, setting a new state record in the 400 with a 57.28, and then anchoring Blaine's winning 4 x 200 relay team. She was the only competitor among 6 different divisions to win 4 events.

Becca Friday of Bellingham won an 800 and 1600 double, running 5: 01.87 in the 1600 to set a new 2A record. In what is sometimes a new national record, all 16 competitors in the 1600 final broke the old state record, with the 16th place competitor beating the old mark by more than 29 seconds.
