Wildcat track and field looking for success in postseason
October 2, 2008 · Updated 7:34 PM
The Mount Si boys' and girls' track and field teams are headed into the postseason looking to make major impacts.
The boys have had a great year, and their recent strong finish at one of the top nonleague boys' meets in the region has them thinking about a long postseason run.
The Wildcat boys finished fourth at the Shoreline Invitational April 28 behind the excellent performances of several athletes. Josh Davis took fourth in the discus with a throw of 157 feet, 10 inches, a personal best that was also the fourth best in Mount Si school history. Frank McLaughlin ran a time of 50.51 seconds in the 400 meters to take fourth place, a personal best for him, and he finished sixth in the 200 meters. In addition, Keith Keller won the javelin competition. Those results, along with a number of other strong showings, have Mount Si thinking big.
"Well, with the way things have gone, I think we've kind of put ourselves in the running for the Kingco championship, which is kind of a surprise," said boys' coach Chris Jackson.
