GIRLS WIN KINGCO TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIP

      It was a day for the history books. The Eastlake girls won the KingCo Track and Field Championship that was held at Renton Memorial Stadium on May 9th and 11th, handily beating their closest opponent Skyline with a score 139-115. The boys also had a banner day, tying for 2nd place with Redmond and losing to champion Issaquah by only 11 points. As a combined team, the Wolves set an astounding 7 school records and crowned 11 KingCo Champions.

     Leading the way for the Wolves was senior jumper Mason Heisser, who not only broke Ryan Fischer’s 27-year-old school record in the long jump with a 22’03.25” leap, but also lowered his own school record in the triple jump with a monster 47’ effort. The mark is an improvement of over a foot from his previous record of 45’7.5” that he set at the South Sound Classic in April. Heisser won both events and is currently the top ranked triple jumper in the state and is 4th in the long jump. He also placed 5th in the high jump and will move on to the state qualifying district meet at Lake Stevens High School May 15th and 17th in that event as well.

     It didn’t take long for Peyton Glennon-Robbins to break one of the oldest records in Eastlake Track and Field history.  On the first day, in her first event of the KingCo Championships, she broke Melissa Behrens 26-year-old 100m record with a time of 12.35.  The previous record that was set in 1998 was 12.44.  Her winning effort gives her a current 5th place ranking in 4A standings. She also placed 5th in the 200m in a personal best time of 25.56 which is number two all time for EHS and surpasses former school record holder Anna Carskaden who ran collegiately at Caly Poly.

     Star hurdler Matt Secrist had a fantastic meet, claiming victory in three events. His winning time of 14.56 in the 110m hurdles bettered his own school record in a non-wind aided mark. He also ran a personal best in the 300m event with a 38.15 winning time and continues to be the top ranked athlete in 4A. Secrist also ran a leg on the victorious, school record breaking 4x100m relay that included Colby Johnson, Harry McHugh, and Kai Brown. Their 42.09 clocking broke a ten-year-old school record of 42.46 that was held by Matt Morrison, Drew Lewis, Troy Lewis, and Alex Hawkinson. The Lewis brothers went on to play football collegiality at the University of Washington and the University of Colorado. The time gives the team a number three ranking in 4A standings.

     Freshman Anna Schneidler continued to impress by winning two races, lowering her own school record in another and being part of a relay that set another school record.  Schneidler easily won the 400m in her first event of the meet in a time of 56.69.  Having set the record for that event earlier in the season, she is currently ranked 2nd in 4A standings. She placed 2nd in her next race the 800m, in a personal best time of 2:12.5, moving to 3rd on the all-time list for Eastlake and 2nd in the state. An hour later Schneidler lowered her own school record in the 200m with a time of 25.01 for a third-place finish. To end the day, she anchored the winning and school record setting 4x400m relay. Teammates Milena Dancsha’zy, Sally Roos and Jane Roos joined her to run a 3:57.11, breaking the record that was set last year by Alyssa Flindt, Jane Roos, Peyton Quinto, and Ava Hagwell who is currently running sprints at the University of Chicago. They are currently the 2nd ranked team in the state.

     In addition to his 4x100m win, future Edmonds Community College sprinter Harry McHugh wowed the crowd with his stunning 200m victory. Running a personal best time of 22.01, McHugh is now number two all time for the Wolves, moving ahead of Ryan Lewis who went on to play football collegiately at the University of Pittsburgh and then in the NFL. He also placed 5th in the 100m and ran a leg on the second place 4x400m relay that included Secrist, Eli Yoon and Connor Hom. Their season’s best time of 3:24.63 is 10th on the all-time list and 3rd in 4A rankings.

     The middle-distance squad put on a clinic in the 800m. Connor Hom, who will run cross country and track for Yale next year claimed victory with a state leading time of 1:53.3 and four of the boys and three of the girls made the podium. Joining him were Eli Yoon who placed 4th (1:55.3) Justin Hom who was 6th (1:56.5) and Andrew Talius who placed 8th (1;58.8). Yoon is now 6th all time for the Wolves and is ranked 4th in 4A. Sally and Jane Roos placed 4th and 5th after Schneidler’s 2nd place finish in personal best times of 2:13.54 and 2:15.56 and are now ranked 4th and 7th on the all-time list with Sally moving ahead of Chelsea Orr who went on to be an All-American distance runner at the University of Washington.  The group will also move 5 runners on to the district meet in the 1600m. Connor Hom narrowly missed the win, placing 2nd in a season’s best time of 4:14.35. Teammates Eli Yoon, Justin Hom and the Roos sisters also qualified.

     The field event girls made Eastlake proud by having a historically momentous day and were responsible for a slew of points that went towards the girls winning the Championship. Leading the way for the Wolves was javelin school record holder Addison Kapur who was crowned KingCo champ in the javelin for the second year in a row with a 121-11 mark.  Teammate Krista Kostoff threw a huge personal best of 115-10, good for 2nd place. Kostoff, who is in her first year and only recently learned to throw the javelin is already 3rd all time for EHS. She will be playing volleyball next year for Gonzaga University.

     The Wolves put three girls on the podium in the shot put with Azadeh Teague placing 2nd (33-01) and Kapur taking 3rd (32-00). Alexandra Walker claimed the 8th spot with a throw of 29-04. Teague and Walker took 2nd and 3rd in the discus. Teague, who set the school record in the event last week, threw 126-00, while Alex set a personal best mark of 105-09. Teague is currently ranked 5th in 4A standings.

     In the jumps, senior Katie Bradford, who is competing in track for the first time, placed 2nd in the long jump with a 16’06” mark and freshman Grace Tolo finished 3rd in the high jump with a 4-10 effort.

     Maroon was the dominant color of the day in the girls pole vault with the Wolves qualifying the most competitors of any event with six athletes. Senior Hannah Sahagian placed 3rd in a season’s best mark of 10-06 while junior Ananya Diddee vaulted to a big PR of 9-06 for 6th place. Imogen Savage, Kate Thomas, Jessica Martin, and Selah Tracy also competed.

TEAGUE SETS SCHOOL RECORD AT LAST CHANCE INVITATIONAL

     Azadeh Teague took full advantage of the Last Chance Invitational to “stay sharp” for the upcoming championship season by breaking a 26-year-old school record in the discus. The girls’ team won the 11-team competition, and the boys took 2nd at the final regular season meet that was held at Lake Washington High School on Friday May 3rd.

     Teague smashed the previous record of 124’3” that was set by Heidi Hurn in 1998 by tossing the discus 128’00.5”. The throw, which was an over 4-foot improvement for her, is currently ranked 5th in 4A standings. She also placed 2nd in the shot put with a 31-05 effort. She is Eastlake’s number eight all time in that event.

     Junior hurdler Matthew Secrist also had an impressive tune-up by running personal best times in both 110’s and 300m races. His 38.44 clocking the 300’s leads the 4A state rankings, while his time for 110’s (14.63) is 3rd. Secrist was also a part of two winning relays, the 4x100m and the 4x400m. The 4x100m squad, which also included Colby Johnson, Harry McHugh and Kai Brown ran a season’s best time of 42.64.  They are now the 3rd fastest 4x100 in Eastlake’s history and are ranked 5th in 4A going into the KingCo Championships next week. To top off the day, he anchored the 1st place 4x400m team which included Bryson Hodges, Mason Heisser and McHugh.

     In addition to running on the winning 4x100m and 4x400m relays, McHugh was impressive, winning the 200m in a personal best time of 22.21.  With that mark, the future Everett Community College sprinter is now the 3rd best in Eastlake’s history, passing Drew Lewis who went on to play football collegiately at the University of Washington and the University of Colorado. It is the 9th fastest time run in 4A this season. McHugh also ran his fastest time ever in the 100m and took second place. His time of 11.05 ranks 6th all time for the Wolves.

     Peyton Glennon-Robbins had a block buster performance, by winning three events and by placing 3rd in the other. The junior got out to a fast start in winning the 100m in a personal best time of 12.56, and now shares the number two time for the Wolves with Ellie Talius (2018). Talius, whose twin brothers Andrew and Lukas currently run distance on the team, went on to compete in the Pac 12 as a triple jumper for Stanford University. Glennon-Robbins also had the top mark of the day in the long jump with a 16’11” effort, which gives her a 13th place ranking. In addition, she was part of the winning 4x100m relay along with Milena Danchsazy, Erin Harris and Katie Bradford that ran a season’s best time of 50.25 and is ranked 14th in 4A. Finally, her personal best, 3rd place effort in the 200m (26.01) is the 4th best run by a Wolf, surpassing Ava Hagwell who is currently running sprints for the University of Chicago.

SCHNEIDLER SETS SCHOOL RECORD ON SENIOR NIGHT

      It was a fitting home track farewell for kids who grew up in the Northwest at the dual meet on April 25th against Skyline.

SECRIST SHINES AT OREGON RELAYS

WOLVES SET THREE SCHOOL RECORDS

 

     Hurdler Matt Secrist did not blink an eye competing on the biggest stage of his life in the Oregon Relays which were held April 19th and 20th at historic Hayward Field in Eugene. The meet, which is arguably one of the top high school track and field meets in the country, featured over 60 teams and countless additional individuals, gave the Wolves the invaluable experience of competing at a national and world class venue. 

     Secrist, who competed in both hurdle events, placed 4th in the 300’s and 7th in the 110’s and ran personal records in both.  His 38.49 clocking in the 300’s moves him to number two all time, surpassing Jeff Sloat who competed collegiately at Western Washington University. His 14.70 mark in the 110’s lowers his own non wind aided school record. He is currently ranked 2nd in the 300’s and 3rd in the 110’s in 4A standings.

     Joining Secrist at podium status for the meet were Anna Schneidler, Mason Heisser, and George Malina. Freshman sensation Schneidler who already set the school record in the 400m a couple of weeks ago, placed 4th (56.87), while Heisser who also set the school record in the triple jump a few weeks back, also placed 4th with an 44-07 effort.  Freshman speedster Melana placed 8th in the Freshmen 100m with a personal best time of 11.40. He is now the 2nd fastest freshman in Eastlake’s history right behind sophomore teammate Colby Johnson. 

     Two of the girls’ relays also reached the podium.

Addison Kapur got the Eastlake Track and Field Team off to a tremendous start in the “Battle of 228th Street” jamboree on March 14th at Skyline High School.  The early season “rust buster” against Skyline and Eastside Catholic was an abbreviated non-scoring meet that gave the student-athletes a chance to dip their toe in the water and compete in two events.  Kapur, who set the school record in the javelin as a sophomore last year and placed 3rd at the State Meet picked up right where she left off and improved her own record by more than seven inches with a 133-04 winning throw.  She is the State leader in early season rankings.
