Varsity Kingco Championship takes place on Wed & Friday,  the top 16 individuals in the League and top 8 relay teams compete at this meet.  Individual and team trophies are awarded at the Varsity meet.  All other athletes will compete at the JV Kingco Championship on Thursday - a great opportunity to get one more PR!

Districts – The top eight  individuals and all relay teams from the Kingco Varsity Championship qualify for Districts. 

State – The top two individuals and top two relay teams from Districts qualify for the State Championship. This event brings together the best 16 individuals and relay teams from across Washington State to crown the State Champions. 

Mae Bryant joined fellow teammates Bowmann Starr (PV) and Ellie Talius (LJ)  as King Co champions on Friday night, at the conclusion of the championship meet at Skyline High School, winning the shot put with a 39-06 effort. Bryant will head to the district state qualifying meet as the second ranked shot putter in 4A state. 

The girls 4x400m relay team of Talius, Alexia Bryant, Azita Balsara and Brooke Manson also had a spectacular night by setting the school record with a time of 4:01.92, earning a district qualifying second place finish. The time broke a four year old record that was set by a foursome that all competed or currently compete at the Division 1 level in track:   Anna Carskaden (Cal Poly),  Pia Richards (WSU),  Devon Bortfield (WSU),  and Anastasia Kosykh (UW).

The hurdlers continued their amazing season with all three boys 300m entrants advancing to the district meet. The trio includes Cooper Williams-2nd place (40.60) PR, Nic LeBlanc-4th place (41.14)PR, and Cameron Stewart-fifth place. Wi-2nd place (15.57)PR and LeBlanc-4th place also qualified in the 110’s.  On the girls side, Olivia Harris PR’d in the 300m event and placed 2nd with a time of 47.18.  She also claimed a district spot in the 100m hurdles with an 8th place finish.  

In the mid-distance and distance events, Manson, who anchored the school record 4x400m team, also qualified for districts in both the 400m and 800m runs by placing second in each of them. As she has for most of the season, the future Utah Ute is the top ranked 800m runner in the state, and the number four in the 4A 400m. Nate Pendleton, a future WSU Coug, also punched his ticket to the district meet in three events by placing 3rd in the 3200m and 5th in the 1600m.  He also anchored the 4x400m relay which placed 6th and included Sam Cureton, Adarsh Mulupuru, and Stewart. Cureton and Alexia Bryant also qualified in the 400m with an 8th place (52,12)PR and 7th place finish respectively.

The throwers continued to excel in their season and will be taking a strong contingent to districts.  Joining Bryant in the shot put will be fellow throwers Faith Morse (8th) and Samantha Seabrooks (9th).  On the boys side, Sam Marks will represent the Wolves (8th place.) Riley Dehmer threw a huge PR in the discus (137-00) placing third and solidifying a spot in district competition.  Bryant, with her 5th place finish on Wednesday will represent the Wolves on the girls side in the discus. EHS also qualified three javelin throwers on Wednesday…Emily Mauch (4th), Julia Lustig (5th) and Travis Swiger(6th).

Three pole vaulters will represent EHS at the district meet. King Co Champion Starr will be joined by Talius (2nd) and Amie Benoit (5th).

In the jumps, Larry Shan will double. Already qualifying in the long jump on Wednesday (9th), Shan secured a spot in the triple jump on Friday by placing 4th. King Co long jump champion Talius will join him in the long jump competition and Kenzie Feinglas will join him as a triple jump participant (9th place). Ryan Curran will be EHS’s sole competitor in the high jump,  earning his spot by placing 9th on Wednesday.

The sprints squad will take the largest contingent of Wolves to the district meet. Impressively, in the girls 100m, EHS will occupy 4 of the 8 positions in the district final:  Talius (2nd), Feinglas (6th), Nicole Adams (7th) and Niclole Foster (8th), Grady Robison will run on the boys side of the event (8th) and will also compete in the 200m (6th place).  Shan will add to his busy jumps schedule by also competing in the 200m , in which he ran a personal best (23.11) and placed 5th.  Abby Beckstead (27,33) PR who placed 8th and Niclole Adams will represent EHS in the girls 200m. In addition to the girls record setting 4x400m relay, two additional girls teams will make the trip to Seattle for the district meet;  
4x100m:  Feinglas, Adams, Foster and Beckstead (4th place). 
4x200m:  Madison Lester, Bella Shaffer, Emma Wells and Isabel Peterson (7th). 

The King Co JV South Division meet, which was held on Thursday at Eastlake, got off to a slow start due to a deluge of rain and hail. The Wolves, however, would not be deterred and went on to boast some amazing performances, with many of the student athletes establishing personal bests.
