Thats the resounding word echoing after Sequims dual meet sweep of Kingston and Bremerton in Kingston Friday.
It was precarious for the boys squad in particular, as they narrowly got by Bremerton 76-68 and Kingston 88-57. With Bremerton sprinting phenom Alex Griffin pulled up hurt in the 200, taking away a likely first-place finish, and the Knights 4x100 crew mishandling a handoff, the Wolves were able to pull away.
Spotted a bit of good luck,
Sequims boys rolled to a number of wins including Kincaid Nichols first-place finishes in the 200-meter dash and long jump, plus a pair of first-place finishes by Kenny Russell (800, 1600) and a win in the 110 hurdles by Josh Fodge.
The Wolves also were bolstered by strong performances by Jordan Kirsch (a 139-9 mark in the javelin, a 26-foot personal best), Colby Robb (second in the 3200) and David Copeland in the pole vault (11 feet).
The sweep gives Sequims boys a 3-1 mark and a chance to secure an Olympic League 2A title.
Sequims girls have a chance to topple all league foes 2A or 3A after sweeping aside Kingston and Bremerton Friday. Behind strong performances from Anna LaBeaume, Chase ONeil, Sierra Clark, Persephone Nelson and a host of distance runners, the Wolves downed Bremerton 88-58 and Kingston 81-68.
LaBeaume placed first in the shot put and in the top three in each of the sprints (100, 200 and 400) while Nelson took first in the high jump and second in both the javelin and shot put. Clark had the top throw in javelin. ONeil earned top-three finishes in both the triple jump and long jump.
Christina Bruce (3200) and Laura Moser (1600) added first-place finishes and got second-place runs from Alli Cutting (800) and Audrey Lichten (1600).
The wins keep Sequims girls perfect at 4-0 heading into the April 18 meet in Port Townsend against the Redskins and North Masons Bulldogs.
But Sequim coach Brad Moore is looking further ahead, when Sequim hosts Port Angeles and Olympic April 27.
Both of those school have good athletes, Moore said. Theyll challenge us for sure.
On Saturday, the Wolves posted 10 top-10 performances at the Tacoma Invitational, highlighted by top-three finishes by LaBeaume (shot put), Nichols (100), ONeil (triple jump) and Samantha Whiteside (pole vault).
