Sequim may boast the best 2A team in the Olympic League, but the 3A North Kitsap Vikings may run away with the overall title.

Freshman Jayson Brocklesby gave Sequim a boost with a top mark in the long jump (18-9) and was second in the high jump (5-4) and triple jump (36-2.5).
Alex Jenkins took top honors in the 800-meter race (2:13) and was third in the metric mile (4:56).
Sequim hurdlers swept top finishes in both events, with Stephan Stilts winning the 110-meter high hurdles (16.7) and Emanuel Herrera taking the 300-meter hurdles (42.3). Herrera also was second in the 100-meter sprint and third in the 200.
Sophomore Frank Catelli continues his strong season with a 174-foot throw in the javelin for a second-place finish, took first in the discus with a 126-foot, 7-inch toss and was third in both shot put and triple jump events.
