Tumwater coach Tracy Johnson was still positive on some of his team’s results despite the weather. “Our program is built to peak each year in the post season so we are excited to see what’s in store over the next five weeks as hopefully the weather warms and the competition gets stiffer,” Johnson remarked after the meet. “I truly believe our girls will be in the running for the state title if they stay healthy and continue the trajectory they are on right now. We very well should see a lot of T-Birds on the podium at the WIAA State Meet”.

Tumwater senior Alyssa Duncan jumped 18-feet-0-inches in the long jump and is now the 2A state leader in both long jump and triple jump. Black Hills saw a PR (Personal Record) throw of 96-feet-4-inches in the discus from sophomore Carmen Williams. The throw is now the top for the 2A EVCO.

Herb Guscott, Black Hills track head coach was happy with individual improvements he saw in his team. “Considering the bad weather there were some improvements on our team and I like the effort many of them gave,” Guscott stated. “We have a team that is working hard and hopefully some of the team will move on into the District competition and keep improving as we finish the season.”
