Vashon High School’s track and field team, 60 members strong this year, competed in its first meet of the season on March 20 at West Seattle Stadium. On this warm last day of winter, the field and stadium were packed with kids and parents — over 200 athletes from 12 teams participated. This was a huge non-league meet, but it gave the Vashon kids a chance to check their progress in the events they’ve been practicing and to get a taste of competition. Overall, the VHS boys placed seventh out of 10 teams, and the VHS girls placed fourth out of 12 teams.

This week only, we’ll acknowledge every member of the team who competed in the meet. The athletes who participated in each event will be listed, with a number next to the name of those who placed in the top six. Team members who did not compete: Sean Berntson, Luke Bringhurst, Max Bringhurst, Eli Buffington, Savannah Butcher, Kyle Carlstedt, Tam Dang, Elise Hopper, Dalton Kearns, Alex Piccio, Evan Stephanick and Eleanor Yarkin.
