EASTLAKE BOYS WIN STATE TITLE

SECRIST AND SCHNEIDLER CROWNED STATE CHAMPIONS

 

     In 1997 the newly opened Eastlake High School shocked the Washington state track world when the boys team defeated 5-time team champion Mead in the state track and field meet. In fact, the Wolves coach at the time, Bo McNair, was preemptively offered a pen commemorating the imminent win by the Mead coach, but politely turned it down knowing that EHS had already won. Fast forward 27 years to the 2024 boys track and field squad that just competed in the state meet that was held May 23-25 at Mt Tahoma High School in Tacoma. Similarly, today’s Wolves were not on anyone’s radar to win, including the current coaching staff who felt that after having the school record 4x100m team disqualified in the district meet and losing both the KingCo and district title to Issaquah that a third-place finish might be the best that the team could do.  But defying everyone’s expectations the boys came through and for only the second time in school history won the State Track and Field Championship, defeating the nearest competitor Central Valley 46-38. The girls’ team also competed well and just missed a trophy as they placed 5th overall.

     During the course of the three-day meet, Matt Secrist and Anna Schneidler joined the exclusive club of individual state track and field champions at Eastlake. Secrist courageously fought back after falling behind to win the 300m hurdles (38.88), while Schneidler, only a freshman, led from start to finish, battling significant wind to win the 400m in 56.22.  The duo are only the 4th and 5th student athletes to win individual state titles. Two of coach Mike Pool’s pole vaulters have won, with Ellie Talius claiming the gold in 2017 and Bowman Starr winning in 2019. Jessica Pixler, who was coached by Troy and Jody Anderson, won the 800m in 2006. Additionally, one relay team, the 2014 4x400m squad, which included Troy Lewis, Drew Lewis, Matt Morrison, and Nathan Pixler, was victorious.

     In addition to winning the 300m hurdles, Secrist placed 2nd in the 110’s, missing the win by only a tenth of a second. His time of 14.40 lowers his non-wind aided school record.

     Senior Mason Heisser who scored 14 individual points for the Wolves, was a huge reason that the team won. He placed 2nd in the long jump, breaking his own school record with a 22-06.5 mark and then went on to place 3rd in the triple jump with a 44-07.75 effort. Heisser will leave Eastlake as the best horizontal jumper in Wolves history, holding both the long and triple jump records. He is also 4th all time for the high jump.

     Senior Connor Hom added more points for Eastlake by placing 3rd in the 1600m (4:16.75) and 7th in the 800m (1:56.97). Hom was unfortunately tripped in the 800m going into the last straight away where he was leading the pack. Thankfully, his career is not over as he will run cross country and track next year for Yale. He leaves Eastlake as the number 2 all time in both the 800m and the 1600m.

     Senior Harry McHugh ended his high school career on a positive note by placing 6th in the 200m in a time of 22.69.  McHugh will continue sprinting next year for Everett Community College while attending Fire Fighter’s Academy. He leaves EHS as a member of the school record holding 4x100m team and is number two all time in the 200m and 6th in the 100m.

     The last Wolf to chip in points for the boy’s win was junior Eli Yoon who placed 6th in the 800m (1:58.54) Yoon had a break-out year and ends his season number 6 all time in the 800m and 8th all-time in the 1600m.

     On the girl’s side junior Addison Kapur saved the best for last. On her final throw in the javelin competition, Kapur moved up two positions to claim silver. Kapur broke her own school record with her 136-00 mark.

     Sally and Jane Roos both made the podium in the 800m with Sally placing 3rd (2:14) and Jane placing 6th (2:15.4). In the prelims Jane set a new personal record with a 2:12.74 clocking. She is now number four all time in that event for Eastlake.

     Peyton Glennon-Robbins, who set the school record in the 100m earlier in the season, made it to the finals and placed 5th in that event for a podium spot.

     In addition to her 400m win, Schneidler was a part of two relays that podiumed at state by placing 5th in both. In the 4x100m she combined with Glennon-Robbins, Katie Bradford, and Erin Harris (49.62) and in the 4x400m with the Roos sisters and Milena Dancsha’zy. (4:01.27)

  Discus thrower Azadeh Teague, who set the school record earlier in the season was also a point scorer for the Wolves by placing 8th with a 116-07 toss.

WOLVES WIN DISTRICT TITLE

 RELAYS SMASH RECORDS

     Eastlake’s girls track and field team is on a roll. After winning the KingCo Championship last week, they came out on top on May 15th and 17th in the 15 team WesCO/ KingCo district meet at Lake Stevens High School. The 4x400m team of Milena Dancsh’azy, Jane Roos, Sally Roos and Anna Schneidler continued to impress by lowering the school record that they currently hold by another 2 seconds. Their winning time of 3:55.11 gives them a 2nd place 4A ranking in an extremely competitive field this year.

     Schneidler had another stellar meet, setting two school records in addition to the 4x400m. Running a personal best winning time in the 400m of 56.18 which lowered the record she set earlier in the season, she also anchored the second place 4x200m. The relay, which included Dancsha’zy, Peyton Glennon Robbins and Katie Bradford, smashed the record that was set last year by Glennon-Robbins, Sofia Robe, Peyton Quinto, and current University of Chicago sprinter Ava Hagwell by over 2 seconds. Their time of 1:42.63 gives them a 5th place ranking in 4A.

     Leading the way for the boy’s team who placed 3rd, was senior Mason Heisser who won both the long (21’11.75) and the triple jump (45’2.75). He will leave EHS as the best jumper of all time after setting both the long and triple jump records this season and is currently the top ranked triple jumper and is 6th in the long in state standings.

     The jumps squad crowned a third district champion with Glennon-Robbins putting down a personal best jump in the long jump with a 17’5” mark. She is now the 2nd best jumper in Eastlake’s history and 9th in 4A rankings. She also punched her ticket to state in two more events with her 2nd place finish in the 100m (12.65) and by running a leg on the 3rd place 4x100m team that included Dancsha’zy, Bradford and Erin Harris. Their 49.34 clocking is now the 2nd fastest time run at Eastlake moving ahead of the 2015 team of Audrey Knutsen, Maddy Kennedy, Ellie Woerner and Brooke Manson. Woerner went on to play Division 1 basketball at Boise State University and the University of Portland, while Manson, who still holds the school record in the 800m, is finishing her middle-distance career at the University of Utah where she has been named All-Pac 12 numerous times.

     In a historic day for the javelin, Eastlake qualified two girls for the state meet, which will be held in Tacoma at Mt. Tahoma high school May 23-25th. School record holder Addison Kapur won with a 129’4” throw, while newcomer and future Gonzaga volleyball player Krista Kostoff placed 3rd with a 114’4” mark. Kapur is currently ranked 3rd in 4A standings.

     Yale middle distance recruit Connor Hom took home gold, winning the 800m in 1:54.99. He will also represent the Wolves in the 1600m where he placed 3rd in a time of 4:18.78. Hom has the top time going into the state meet in the 800m and is ranked 4th in the 1600m. Teammate Eli Yoon placed 3rd in the 800m with a 1:56.06 clocking and qualified. He is currently 5th in the state rankings.

     Matt Secrist lowered his own non-wind aided school record in the 110m hurdles with a time of 14.45, placing 2nd to the top hurdler in the state. He also qualified in the 300m hurdles, where he has the top time going into the state meet. Additionally, he led off the 4x400m relay that punched their ticket to state along with Bryson Hodges, Harry McHugh, and Yoon with a 3:27.9 mark.

     Jane Roos was fantastic in the 1600m and 800m running personal best times in both. Her 3rd place time of 4:59.3 in the 1600m is now 4th on the all-time list, surpassing Emily VanValkenburg who is currently running distance at Oregon State University. Her 800m time of 2:14.45 is 5th all time, bettered UW’s All American distance runner Chelsea Orr’s high school time.

     Along with her sister, Sally Roos will represent Eastlake in three events. In addition to the record breaking 4x400m relay, she qualified in the 800m with a 2nd place finish in a personal best time of 2:13.27 and in the 1600m with a 4th place finish. She enters the state meet ranked 3rd in the 1600m and 6th in the 800m.

      Discus school record holder Azadeh Teague will represent EHS not only in her signature event, securing her spot with 121’3” toss and a 3rd place finish, but in the shot put where she placed 4th. Throwing a personal best mark of 34’10”, Teague jumped 3 spots in the all-time rankings moving ahead of Maddie Bangasser who went on to be an All-American rower for Western Washington University.

    Senior Hannah Sahagian put an asterisk on her high school pole vaulting career by qualifying for state for the first time with a personal best vault of 11’0 and a 4th place finish. She is now ranked 3rd all time for the Wolves.

     In addition to running a leg on the 4x400m relay, senior Harry McHugh will finish his high school career representing Eastlake in the 200m at the state meet by placing 3rd with a time of 22.50.  The future Everett Community College sprinter is currently ranked 5th in 4A standings.

Additional Scorers Included:

Justin Hom-800m, Zach Schriner-javelin, Alexandra Walker-discus, Grace Tolo-high jump, Yoon-1600m, Asir Jackson-long jump, McHugh-100m, and Colby Johnson-long jump.

 

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.
