Freshman Haley Holiday not only broke the school record at the WIAA State Track and Field Championships last Saturday, but she also took fourth place in the high jump with a 5’6” leap. First, second and third places also went to girls high jumping 5’6”.  Prior to state, Haley had cleared 5’ and was pushing towards breaking Coco Poirer’s 5’2” school record. Congratulations on a fine track season for this young and talented freshman.

Senior Karle Pittsinger ended her high school track career with two second place finishes; one in the shot put with a throw of 42’11” just short of the winning throw by Morgan Van Koster who had an impressive 45’2” throw. Karley placed second in the discus with a 131’ throw. Karle will continue her track efforts as a Husky next year when she enters the University of Washington.

Sophomore Jose Padilla set a new school record in the discus with a throw of 155’ which was good enough for second place at the State Tournament. He also took second in the shot put with a throw of 53’9.75” which was three feet shy of the winning throw. Expect to see Padilla continue to challenge school records and state records in the future.

Asa Schwartz had a 12th place finish in the discus with a throw of 120’04” but fouled out of the shot put competition.

Morgan Hawkins finished 15th in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.19 seconds and Freshman Sterling Gordon had a great showing in the javelin with a 152’10” throw for 10th place overall. Sophomore Bryan Cadena place 3rd in the pole vault with a 12’9” vault.
