Headed to state

Mount Si will be sending 10 student athletes to the state track meet in Pasco this weekend. Seven girls and three boys will compete for top honors after successfully qualifying in the Sea-King district track meet last week.

For the boys it was throwing events that paved the way. Keith Keller won the javelin competition with a throw of 175 feet, a personal best. Teammate Zach Sumner will also travel to state in the javelin after a throw of 158 feet for third place.

First-year track standout Josh Davis qualified for state in the discus with a throw of 147 feet, 8 inches, taking third place.

Mount Si took 11th out of 19 teams at the Sea-King meet for boys.

For the girls, Symone Shaw led the effort with a second place finish in the long jump, flying 16 feet, 11 1/4 inches. Teammate Tephra Brune tossed the discus 108 feet, 6 inches for a third-place finish and a trip to the state meet.

Madison Yakaboski will also travel to Pasco in two events. She placed fourth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.7 seconds. She also ran on both the 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams, both of which qualified for the state meet. Nicole Remish, Katie Woolsey and Jessie Oliver also ran on the relay teams. They notched a 50.1 second time for fourth in the 4x100 and broke the school record with a 4:01.5 in the 4x400 for third.

Jessica Oliver won the championship for the second year in a row in the 300 hurdles with a time of 46.1 seconds. Diane Keller also will make the trip to Pasco after placing third in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 48.3 seconds.
