Some members of the Vashon High School Pirates track and field team spent part of their spring break competing in an extra track meet at Washington High School on Thursday, April 10.

After a scheduled bye and spring break week ahead, the team loaded on the bus to find the competition provided by Seattle Christian, Cascade Christian, Chimacum and the host Washington High School.

Without any scheduled classes last Thursday, the first event for the Pirates was a bowling outing to Narrows Lanes as a team builder before the meet.

Freshman Tim Hill took his bowling a little more seriously as he rolled a 144 for the high score.

Then later at the meet Hill set a personal record in the shot put at 29’2, then in the discus with a throw of 95’3.

Since Vashon only had a partial team with some of the athletes on vacation for the week, and since this was an extra meet, the marks did not count in the team scoring.

However, athletes could still set personal records, and the time and marks counted individually.

Setting those personal marks for the guys were Nathan Betz in the 100 at 11.93 and Danny Salonen in 12.4; Adam Thalhofer in the 300 hurdles at 46.19, and James Spencer stopping the clock in 24.7 in the 200 meters.

Bryce Pardee also threw a personal record in the javelin at 83’9.5, besting his previous mark by 18 feet.

On the girls side, personal records in the 100 meters were set by Rylie Sudduth in 14.29, Jordan Plihal in 14.6 and Lizzy Braicks in 14.49.

Braicks also set a personal record in the 200 meters at 30.5 along with Alana Robinson at 28.6.

The girls 4×400 team consisting of Alia Payne, Emma Lodes, Savannah Krug and anchor runner Jacqueline Jewell took first place in the time of 4:37.
