Cutting wins state 3,200-meter title

Sequim High senior Allison Cutting won her first state track title Thursday night, besting the field in the 3,200-meter race in the 2A state finals at Mount Tahoma in Tacoma.

Cutting finished in 11:04.5, topping runner-up Marina Roberts, a sophomore from Kingston, by more than nine seconds.

“It was a pretty good day overall,” Cutting told in a post-race interview. “I just wanted to win it. It’s my senior year. I just wanted to feel out the competition the first mile. With 800 left, I just decided to pull out from the pack … and just keep pushing to the end. I was pretty prepared for whatever would come.”

Sequim’s 4x400 relay boys’ team qualified for Saturday’s finals by placing eighth in the preliminaries with a 3:30.55 mark.

Sequim’s 4x400 girls’ team missed a chance at Saturday’s finals by less than a second, placing ninth in the preliminaries.

The track meet continues today, with events concluding at 5:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
