With Day 2 of the WIAA State Track & Field Championships now in the books, more Edmonds School District prep athletes are showing off event medals won at the event.
Three Lynnwood Royals earned podium finishes during Friday’s competition: Rita Sakharov is taking home a fourth place medal from the 3A girls 100 meter hurdles and will go for a second individual honor on Saturday after qualifying for the 3A girls 300 meter hurdles. Teammate Emily Smatlak grabbed a fifth place finish in the 3A girls javelin while the Royals’ Elijah Edwards earned the seventh place medal in the 3A boys 110 meter hurdles.
Though not good enough to reach the podium, Lynnwood’s Jacob Laban did have his time in the spotlight (and the sun) at the state meet, finishing 12th in the 3A boys shot put final.
The Royals’ Devin Boss closed out his time at the state meet with a 14th place in the 3A boys 200 meter preliminaries. The junior also helped the Lynnwood 4×100 meter relay team that included Jerry Pham, Tyler Dao and Alex Nguyen to an 11th place finish in the that event’s preliminaries.
Edmonds-Woodway’s Aaron Richardson finished seventh in the 3A boys 300 meter hurdles preliminaries on Friday, good enough to send the junior to Saturday’s finals. Fellow Warrior Ella Spillane wasn’t so fortunate as she finished 15th in the 3A girls 200 meter preliminaries.
Maxim Vengrovski, the Warriors’ final Friday competitor at the state meet, placed 10th in the 3A boys high jump.
The Mountlake Terrace Hawks grabbed the best finishes among Edmonds School District athletes on Friday: Brandon Bach won the 2A boys javelin title while Matt Guardiano placed second in the boys discus ambulatory final.
