PEDERSEN WINS DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP

Ethan Pedersen continued his winning ways by being crowned Wesco-Kingco Bi-District Champ in his signature event the 3200m on Friday May 19th at Lake Steven High School. Just a week earlier he had claimed the KingCo title in the same event with his teammate Noah Zahn placing 2nd. Leading wire to wire and setting a personal record of 9:25.6, Pedersen left no question that he would be a contender in the state meet that will be held at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma on May 26th-28th. Zahn also punched his ticket to state by placing 4th in a personal record of 9:30.18.

Pole vaulter Addy Keller, who will pole vault as a Lute next year at Pacific Lutheran University, tied for 2nd, equaling her personal best mark of 11-00.  She heads to the state meet ranked 7th in the state 4 A rankings and is the 3rd best all-time vaulter at EHS.

The boys 4x400m relay were also runners up, advancing to state in a 3:24.74 clocking that gives them a 9th place all time ranking for EHS and a 3rd place 4A ranking heading into the state meet. The relay was highlighted by the return from injury of senior Aaron Heisser. Running the 3rd leg, Heisser, who will compete next year for Indiana Tech University, wowed the crowd by erasing a 30m lead to hand off in 1st place by running an incredible split of 49.7. Joining him in the state qualifying relay were Sean Clark, Justin Hom, and Connor Hom.

Several Wolves will represent Eastlake in multiple events at the state meet:

*In addition to anchoring the state qualifying 4x400m relay, Connor Hom solidified his spots in both the 1600m and 800m at state by placing 3rd in the 1600m in a time of 4:29.7 and by running of personal best time of 1:56.39 in the 800m and placing 5th. His brother Justin narrowly missed a state berth in the 800m, despite running a great time of 1;56.43, which placed him 6th. The Hom brothers moved up on the EHS all time list to the 6th and 7th position, surpassing Nate Pendleton who just finished up his career at Washington State University where he ran distance.

*Freshman sensation Jane Roos will represent Eastlake in both the 1600m and 3200m at the state meet. She placed 3rd in the 1600m in a personal best time of 5:00.82, which gives her a 4th place ranking on the all-time list at EHS, moving ahead of UW’s Chelsea Orr who ran on the national championship distance medley relay for the Huskies. Roos also placed 3rd in the 3200m in a time of 10:47.25. She is ranked 6th going into the state meet.

*Emily Van Valkenburg, the future Oregon State Beaver, also qualified for the state meet in both the 1600m and 3200m for the Wolves placing 4th in both events in times of 5:01.5 and 10:48.47 respectively.

*Ava Hagwell, in addition to qualifying in the 400m by placing 4th and running a time of  1:00.45, anchored the 4x400m relay that placed 4th in a 4:07.7 clocking which gives the squad of 9th all-time ranking. Joining her on the team were Ariya Mathrawala, Erin Schmidlin and Peyton Quinto.

*Senior Finn Bueffel leaped to a huge PR in the triple jump with a 41-00.50 that earned him a 4th place state qualifying finish.  He will also serve as an alternate on the 4x400m relay that will compete at state.
