Timberwolves sweep league track and field finals

For the Sequim’s boys team, last week’s North Olympic Middle School track and field championships was another dominating performance. For the girls, it was a nail-biter.

In the end, Sequim wound up taking home both team titles as they swept the final meet of the season on May 28 in Sequim.

Led by six individual champions and wins in two relay races, Sequim’s boys tallied 179.3 points, easily outpacing Forks (94.0) and Stevens-Port Angeles (82.3) for top honors.

Sequim’s Riley Cowan won the javelin by 45 feet at 177-0 over teammate Kevin Meyer (132-0) while Keeshawn Whitney won the shot put with a 37-foot, 1.25-inch toss. Cowan also took top honors in the 200-meter hurdles (29.98) and took third in the high jump (4-10).

Bailey King won the 60-meter dash in 8.07 seconds and won the long jump (16-3), edging teammate Whitney by half an inch. King added a second-place finish in the 200-meter race. Matt Craig raced to a win in the 1,600-meter race (5:23.73) and was third in the 800 meters.

Sequim also earned wins in the 4x200 (Ray Lam, Alec Shingleton, Liam Payne and Ian Parker) and 4x400 relays (Craig, Shingleton, John Edson and Andrew Hansted). Sequim’s Riley Martin was second in the 75-meter hurdles.

Sequim’s girls edged Stevens-Port Angeles by a single point — 169 to 168 — while Crescent finished a distant third with 63 points.

Sequim’s Aylee Bennett won the discus with a 67-foot, 6-inch throw, 13 feet better than her nearest competitor.

Timberwolf Annika Christianson won the 200-meter hurdles (33.67) and joined Caitlyn Turner, Astrid Martin and Anna White on SMS’s winning 4x100 relay team (58.10 seconds).

Turner was second in the high jump with a 4-6 effort and second in the 75-meter hurdles (14.25), followed by teammate Audrey Hughes (14.45).

Hughes was second in the shot put (29-2.75) and Bennett took third (28-8.5).

White placed second in the javelin (71-7) and Martin was runner-up in the long jump (13-7.25).
