Klahowya’s throwers relay qualified for districts

Klahowya has an unlikely entrant into this weekend’s Class 1A West Central District track and field meet at Bremerton.

The Eagles 4×100 relay team will improbably running for a spot at state.

With a shortage of sprinters this season, coach Jim Felty asked for some volunteers to run the relay. He got them in a group of throwers (and a pole vaulter). Trevor Hargrove, Connor Swaney, Christopher Greene and Cooper Martinson, three of them football players, took third at the Olympic League 1A/sub-district meet over the weekend. Top three qualified for districts (it helped that Coupeville was DQ’d).

They ran it in 52.27 seconds, which was more than six seconds behind second-place Port Townsend.

“And they have more fun than anyone else,” Felty said via email.

All said, it was a pretty good weekend for the Eagles, who won the boys league title and tied with Coupeville for the girls title.
