Track and Field Roundup: Hamilton, O’Neill Shine for Napavine at Home


Seven 2B schools came to Tiger Town on Thursday, but the Napavine track and field team took top honors on its own turf, bringing home eight individual wins.

Half of those came from Morgan Hamilton, who placed first in the girls 100-meter dash (13.41), 200-meter dash (28.11), the 400-meter dash (1:05.50), and the long jump (15 feet, 2.75 inches). On the boys’ side of things, Max O’Neill won the 100 (11.52) and the 200 (23.60) on the track, while also winning the long jump (38 feet, 5.5 inches).

Colin Shields gave the Tigers another win on the field, with a shot put up 41 feet, 8.5 inches.

Keira O’Neill placed second in both the girls high jump (4 feet, 8 inches) and the triple jump (31 feet, 1 inch), Mario Lara was second in the boys javelin (134 feet, 4 inches), and Maddie Dickinson was second to Hamilton in the girls 200 (28.48).

Rainier did the bulk of its damage on the field, specifically in the throws. Haleigh Hanson won the girls shot put at 30 feet, 3.5 inches, and her 74-foot, 4-inch toss of the discus came in second, behind only teammate  Nadia Kight’s attempt of 89 feet, 10 inches. On the boys’ side, Zander Peck won the discus (131 feet, 2 inches), and Matthew Kenney was second in the shot put (39 feet, 3.5 inches).

Acacia Murphy added a high jump win at 4 feet, 10 inches. On the track, James Meldrum won the boys 800 (2:16.50), Zach Hamilton won the 3,200 (11:20.59), and Kenney, Chris Grey, Josh Meldrum, and Jayden Alagarbes won the 4x100 relay (48.02)

Onalaska came away with a fair few wins of its own, led by Melissa Reiman in the girls 800 meters (2:39.65) and the 1,600 (6:13.87). The rest of the first-place finishes for the Loggers came from the boys, with Isaac Fitch winning the 400 in 55.83, Ben Russon winning the 1,600 in 5:01.30, Riley Carter winning the 110-meter hurdles in 19.35, and Fitch, Russon, Case McGraw, and Taden Miller teaming up to win the 4x400 relay (3:49.56).

Toledo Boys Dominate in Ilwaco

The Toledo boys track and field team joined six other schools from the coast in Ilwaco, and proceeded to blow the competition away, winning five of the 10 track events.

Jordan Mckenzie took first place in the 200-meter dash with a time of 24.12. Conner Olmstead was first in the 400 at 55.00, and Treyton Marty won the 800 in 2:13.50.
