Big Weekend For Recruits In Snohomish, At Mt. SAC
California meets have been the headliners for the Husky track recruits in recent weeks, and while there was another big to-do down in Southern California at the Mt. SAC Relays, a number of future UW tracksters competed this weekend at the Larry Eason Invitational Track and Field Meet at Snohomish High School.
Hurdler extraordinaire Kayla Stueckle of Emerald Ridge won both the women's 100m and 300m hurdles in times of 14.84 and 44.30, respectively. Stueckle won by more than three seconds in the 300m hurdles. Michelle Fero of Holy Names also ran the state's best 400-meter dash this year at 57.10.
Back down in Caliornia, Chloe Curtis was one again involved in a dramatic finish, as the Redondo Union star anchored a state-record time in the girls 4x1,600m relay. Flotrack.org has some nice footage of the future Husky gutting it out across the finish line.
Also at Mt. SAC, Megan Morgan of Torrey Pines High was the anchor on the winning girls distance medley relay, which blew away the competition by 18 seconds to win in a national-leading time of 11:41.84, which surpassed the time of Redondo Union and Curtis from the Arcadia Invite a few weeks back. Torrey Pines' time ranks it as the 12th fastest team in U.S. history.
Here is Flotrack footage of Morgan anchoring for Torrey Pines. She takes the baton at around the 6:50 mark, and you'll have to forgive a mispronunciation of her name.
