Checking in with track and field’s top competitorsMay 15th, 2013 by nathan joyce
Just glancing around the top-notch Athletic.net and
thought I’d share a few things.
Rose Christen is impressive. The Central Kitsap distance runner has the 4A’s top time in the 3,200 (fifth overall in the state), second in the 1,600 (third) and third in the 800 (fifth). Last year, she medaled in the 800 and 3,200 at state. It’ll be interesting to see what she does when districts kick off on Friday.
South Kitsap’s 4×400 relay is third in the state and 0.76 seconds separates first from third. Federal Way, which is second, will face SK in the district meet this weekend. LaForrest Church, who will run at Memphis next year, is fifth in the state and second in the 4A (to Central Kitsap’s Michael Thomas) in the 400 and he’s ninth in the 4A in the 800 (an event he was fifth in state last year). Adam Gascoyne, who was SK’s top running back, is sixth in the 4A in the 400.
North Mason’s CJ Allen is top 10 in the 2A in four events: 200, 400, 110 hurdles and 300 hurdles (which is second in the state, just .07 seconds behind first).
North Kitsap’s Reagan Colyer, who has won three state hurdles titles, is in the top 10 in the 2A in both hurdle events and the 1,600 (seventh), an event she ran just once this year and broke the school record in 5:14.02 (she does have three top-five finishes at the state cross country meet). She also has the second-best time in the 2A (and fifth overall in the state) in the 400 at (56.91).
