The Vashon High School Pirate track team made the first of two trips this season to Steilacoom High School last Thursday, April 17.

The Steilacoom field resembled a construction zone because a second gymnasium and a brand-new section of the campus are being built to increase the size of the school.

Along with the host Sentinels, the Pirates also competed with the Washington Patriots and the Cascade Christian Cougars.

Standout performances among the girls included Savannah Krug and Leigh Sheridan sweeping the 3200 with Krug hitting her stride at 12:53 and Sheridan stopping the clock at 13:04. Both were personal best times.

Krug then ran the 800 meters and hit the finish line at 2:33 for another personal record.

Other personal records were accomplished by Michaela Beytebiere in the 100, Emma Lodes in the long jump, Alia Payne in the 400, Alana Robinson in the 100 and Rylie Sudduth in the 100.

Among the boys, all of the following achieved personal bests in the listed events:

Colin Andrus in the 1600 and 800, Kyle Bakker in the javelin, Nathan Betz in the 400, Patrick Byrne in the javelin, Hayden Campbell in the shot and discus, Cullen Conrad in the javelin, Aidan Cyra in the 800, Keller Cyra in the 1600, Andy Didrickson in the 200, Tim Hill in the shot, javelin and high jump, Bryce Pardee in the javelin, Carlos Recendes in the javelin, Danny Salonen in the 200, James Spencer in the 100 and 400 and Adam Thalhofer in the 300 hurdles.

On April 24 the Pirates will make a return trip to Steilacoom to face the Sentinels along with the Fife Trojans and the Life Christian Eagles.
