Pyeatt blisters track for Fliers
Riley Pyeatt isn’t waiting until next spring to start setting school records. The Sequim High junior, who runs for the Kitsap Fliers Track Club, placed third in the 800-meter race at the Tacoma High Performance meet at Bellarmine Prep in mid-May with a finish of 2:15.49 — nearly two seconds faster than the mark SHS record-holder Allison Cutting set in 2008.
Pyeatt bettered that time with a first place finish in the 800 meters of 2:15.46 at the Nino Cantu Twilight Invitational in Seattle on May 22.
