Husky Signees In Action At State Meet
The Washington 2A-3A-4A state track and field meet is underway at Mount Tahoma High School, with a number of future Huskies competing during the three-day competition which began on Thursday.
Highlights of Thursday's action included the prelims of the women's 100m hurdles at the 4A level, where Kayla Stueckle of Emerald Ridge and Tate Latimer of Tahoma each won their qualifying heats with the two fastest times of the day. Stueckle went 14.48 and Latimer clocked 15.06 so the UW-bound pair will battle for the state title later this weekend.
Also running well was Michelle Fero of Holy Names, who led off her 4x4 relay which advanced with the second-best time of the day at the 3A level.
Also looking back and out of the region on some outstanding performances that have gone unmentioned on this site ... Kasen Covington was once again crowned Idaho State Champion in the long jump and triple jump last weekend. Covington's triple jump of 49-10 1/4 is off his 52-foot PR, but still broke his own state meet record, while he saved the PR for his winning long jump of 24-5 1/4, his first time over 23-feet ... meanwhile at the California Southern Sectional Finals, Sean Krinik of Valencia broke the 1:50 barrier in the 800-meters for the first time, running 1:49.77 to dominate the race by 3.5 seconds. At the same meet, Chloe Curtis was a double winner in Div. 2 in the 1,600m and 800m, and Liberty Miller took second in the Div. 1 1,600-meters and 3,200-meters.
Lastly, here is a recent feature in the Del Mar Times on UW-bound senior Megan Morgan and one of her teammates.
