This year, 38 athletes have turned out for the high school track and field team: 30 boys and eight girls represent the Pirates. Their most recent meet was held last Thursday at Charles Wright Academy. The participating schools were the host Charles Wright along with Cascade Christian, Seattle Christian, Vashon and Annie Wright.

Despite the low turnout this year, the girls’ team held its own to place second for the overall team score.

The boys’ team was in the mix points-wise, and had to settle for third place in the scoring. The boys’ 4×100-meter relay took first place in 45.93. The team consists of Kalen Cunningham, Sol Dehnert, Evan Stephanick and Noah Edmonds. Edmonds also took first in the 200 meters in 23.95, which is his personal best. In the same event, Stephanick and Dehnert clocked a third- and fourth-place finish out of 18 other competitors.

In the field events, Sol Dehnert took second in the long jump with a leap of 17 feet 3 inches. Evan Stanford finished third in the shot put at 33 feet 9 inches, and Logan Higuera finished third in the javelin with a throw of 124 feet, 10 inches, his personnel best.

On the girls’ side, the 4×100 relay took second with a time of 55.32. Ava Bostock, Jacquelyn Bostock, Maya Gould and Ana Olson make up the relay team. Bostock also took first place in the 400 meters in a time of 1:07.5. Also taking a first-place finish on the girls’ side was Brigit O’Rourke in the 800 meters, stopping the clock at 3:02. In the field events, Grace Christie placed first in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet 6 inches. Christie also placed third in the high jump at 4 feet 4 inches. In javelin, Isabella Mediavilla placed second with a throw of 76 feet 6 inches. The Pirates next two meets are tomorrow as they return to Charles Wright and on Saturday at the Bellevue Christian Invite held at Interlake High School.
