Mykey Flowers suffered a possible hamstring injury in the 100 meter dash at the Tonasket/Cashmere track meet this past Saturday, April 19. “He was well out in the race when he felt a tightening in the back of his leg and fell. He was out of the race at that point,” reported Coach Skip Boyd.


Flowers has had a preliminary evaluation and more about the injury will be known later. Flowers will continue to provide leadership for the younger track athletes.


In the sprints, it was Mykey Flowers (12.39), Lane Molina (12.55) Greg Newton (12.88) and Skyler rolfson (13.04) in the 100 meter dash.


Morgan Hawkins led the girls 100 meter dash in a time of 13.61 followed by Rachael Hawkins in 15.01. In the 200 meter dash, Morgan Hawkins ran a 28.58 followed by Drew Morris (30.15) to take the first two spots at the meet. The open 400 meter dash had Rachael Hawkins posting a Personal Best of 1:09.98.


Julian Buyas (58.82) and newcomer to the400 meter dash, Derek Griffith timed a 1:00.53 to get a feel for the event.


Middle distance runners (800 meters) saw improvements as Coach Mark Anderson juggles the distance crew to provide the right mix. Allie Barnes and Addie Ivory ran a 2:38 and 2:38.40 respectively for the girls and Dillon Dawson ran a 2:14.46 for the boys.


The mile and two-mile runs are anchored by twin brothers, Giovanni and Ivan Reyes. Giovanni ran a competitive 5:07.84 in the mile while his brother, Ivan, posted a 10:37.23 in the two-mile run. Freshman Merek Palazzo is pushing the envelope in the two-mile run and posted a new PR of 10:59.24.


On the girls side Allie Barnes ran a great time of 5:50 in the mile followed by Addie Ivory with a 5:55.45, Jessica Galvan (6:17.68) and Caitlin Hunt (15:11.86). This effort will certainly help the Goats cross-country team score well in the fall.


Over in the field events, senior Karle Pittsinger set a new Rieke Invite Meet Record in both the shot and discus with throws of 41’8.50” in the shot and 126’11” in the discus. Sarah Goyne had a 26’1” throw in the shotput and a 73’5” discus throw. Melina Evig tossed the discus 86’9” and the javelin 90’10”.


Jose Padilla continues to be the front thrower in the shotput with a 50’3” effort followed by Asa Schwartz with a 45’6” throw. Asa was out front in the discus with a 133’1” throw followed by Jose with a 127’6” effort.


Other shotput throwers on the Chelan team include Dalton Dietrich (35’8”), Shyler Rolfson (31’3.50”), Ryan Gerber (29’9”), Logan Fifer (27’7.50”),Eric Straub (26’6.50”) and Dane Schwartz (26’1.50”).


In the discus Dalton Dietrich had a 89’6” effort, followed by Rolfson (78’1”), Gerber (77’11”) Schwartz (74’3”), Fifer (61’7”) and Eric Straub (50’1”).

Ty Miller, a new comer to the 300 intermeiate hurdles, time a very good first effort of 47.79 at the Rieke Invitational.


Haley Holiday clocked an 18.27 in the 100 meter High Hurdles in Tonasket followed by Drew Morris at 19.84


In the long jump Matt Antonio had a PR with 18’2.50” followed by Ty Miller jumping 17’4”, Donny Watson 17’5”, Lane Molina 15’10” and Tommy Armstrong at 14’10.50”.


Tom Armstrong continues to improve in the triple jump and had a 33’6” effort while Drew Morris jumped 26’1” for the girls.


In Tonasket, Rebecca Ediger set a PR in the pole vault of 7 feet.


Bryan Cadena came off a tough Tonasket meet to shine at the Rieke Invitational with a new PR of 12’6”. “Rebecca and Bryan are improving in this event everyday and will be a force to deal with by the end of the spring sports season,”reported Coach Boyd.


The relays are started with Bridget Wyant as lead-off in the 400 meter relay. She hands off to Melina Evig who passes to Rebecca Ediger and then to Morgan Hawkins who anchors the event. They ran an impressive time of 55.62 and are cutting time off their efforts each week.


The girls 800 meter relay team of Ediger, Ivory, Evig and Daisy Campos ran a 1:56 in that event. The mile relay team of Hawkins, Ivory, Allie Barnes and Morris ran a 4:38.03.


The boys 400 meter relay team of Donny Watson, Skyler Rolfson, Mykey Flowers and Asa Schwartz ran a 47.15 in that event. The mile relay team of Julian Buyas, Derek Griffith, Donny Watson and Ty Miller ran a good time of 3:57.29.
