Coaches comments:

Coach Boyd would like to highlight some of the outstanding performances of the meet for the Chelan team. 

Allie Barnes 4th place finish in the 800m run was a first try for Allie and she ran exceptionally well with a time of 2:38.  With additional experience in this race she looks to finish in the top 2 or 3 in the CTL by the end of the season. 

 Mykey Flowers timing in the 400m dash was a first for him and his 55.16 was a great performance as this is the toughest race in Track and Field. 

Ty Schwartz PRed in the Javelin and shows great promise in this event. 

 Haley Holiday provided some all around performances showing her versatility by competing well in the HJ, 100HH and the 300HH.  Haley is giving some thought to eventually competing in the multi-event competitions later in the year. 

Drew Morris competes with Haley in the hurdles, does the long jump and then runs on our 800m and 1600m relay teams.  

Many more outstanding performances for Chelan but none better than the last event of the evening, the girls mile relay.

The team of Drew Morris, Allie Barnes, Addie Ivory and Morgan Hawkins provided a thrill to watch.  I have to admit I love watching this relay competition.  The teams first leg was Drew Morris who ran a very competitive first lap for Chelan.  Drew handed the baton off to Allie Barnes who is a freshman.  Allie competed well and gave the stick over to Addie Ivory who is another freshman.  Addie ran a great 400m and she then passed it to Senior Morgan Hawkins who was now in 3rd place.  Morgan understands pace and the best time to make her move. She paced the second place runner until the final stretch then Morgan called upon something extra and passed the runner ahead of her and helped the Chelan team finish second place. Morgan provided a thrilling finish to a great day of track and field in Quincy Washington.   

Freeman & Pasco Invitational 

  The Chelan Field team of Karle Pittsinger, Asa Schwartz and Jose Padilla ventured to the Freeman Invite on Friday night and came away with a couple records and a new PR throw.  Jose Padilla set a new shot put record of 50 feet at the invite.  Jose has set a new PR the last two weeks.  Karle set a new record at the Freeman Invite with a throw of 41 feet in the shot put and then threw the discus 126’-5”.  Karle then followed that up with a throw of 41’-10” at the Pasco meet.  Asa threw a new PR in the discus of 135’-6” at the Freeman meet.  The throwers competed in both meets and competed and represented Chelan in championship manner.  Nice job Coach Pittsinger and Coach Romero.
