Washington Field Events - Day 1

     Day one action in the Field events included the 3A Girls High Jump, which was won by Molly Grager of Juanita.  She jumped 5-04, which gave her a margin over a number of girls who cleared 5-02.  Melissa Merrill of Hanford secured second due to fewer misses, while Kiana Davis of Kelso claimed third in a jump-off with Andrea Stapleton of Kamiakin & Danae Lee of Hudson’s Bay.

       Jamie Weisner of Clarkston  sent the Javelin 146-09, which gave her a good margin of victory over the rest of the field.   Erika Wilson of Selah placed second with a heave of  119-11 and Skylar Cannon of Lakewood was right behind with 118-10. 

      The girls’ Triple Jump went to Courtney Just of Gig Harbor, who leaped 39-04.  Nhautrey Brown of Garfield was alone in second with 38-01 and Kelly Cronic of Curtis placed third with 37-02.  Ali Rodseth, Kira Perkins & Jessica Ludwig placed fourth through sixth respectively with each being credited with versions of 36 & change.

       The Boys’ 2A Long Jump crown went to Cameron Braithwaite of Port Angeles, who jumped 22-05.  There was some confusion, as it appeared that Ephrata’s Christian Nuckolls had flown over twenty-four but then it apparently was disallowed.   Nuckolls was understandably in tears right after the event.   Third place went to Anthony Nanango  of Foster with 21-07.  

       The barrier of sixty was breeched by Dennis Christensen of Richland, who also claimed a state 4A Shot Put title.   Jack Scheideman of Roosevelt earned second with 58-03 and Casey Campbell of Lake Stevens was third with 56-06.   Gino Bresolin of Eastlake was close behind with 55-02. 

      Stanwood’s Kaci Jones edged Alyx Toeina of Kentwood 131-10 to 130-09 in the Discus throw.  Alexis Sarver of Arlington finished third in 4A with 128-07 and Kelsie Forcier of South Kitsap threw 127-06 , which was good for fourth.
