The track teams of Arlington High School have been Wesco League powers over the past few years. Judging from their performance on Thursday, the Eagles look to be among the top league teams again this season.
Both the Arlington boys’ and girls’ track squads dominated in a three-team meet that included the Mountlake Terrace Hawks and the Meadowdale Mavericks Thursday at Edmonds Stadium.
Arlington athletes won 13 of the 17 events contested on the boys’ side and 15 of the 18 girls events, leaving just a few top spots available for Terrace and Meadowdale competitors.
In boys’ competition, the Hawks’ Alex Woodard captured first place in the high jump with a leap of six-feet even; the Mavs’ Peter Wick was victorious in the triple jump with a mark of 39-7.50. The Terrace 4×100 meter relay team and the Meadowdale 4×400 meter relay team won their races.
On the girls’ side, the Mavs’ 4×200 relay team grabbed first place along with Meadowdale’s Sesley Love in the 400 meters and the Hawks’ Julia Hart in the javelin.
