Skinny: The Central Kitsap boys are contenders to bring back a state team trophy (top four) with Cameron Carroll, who finished third at districts, leading the way. The 2A race is strangely devoid of Kitsap runners as North Kitsap, a regular at state, was shut out and no local teams qualified. Port Angeles and Sequim showed well at districts.

North Kitsap’s Colyer will compete at Montana

Reagan Colyer has found a place to run in college, but what she will running is still in doubt.
Colyer signed a letter of intent to run at Montana last month.
Montana, where her dad Jim went to school, has been her main choice since before she became a contender for a track and field scholarship.
Colyer, who wants to study journalism, is a three-time state champ in the hurdles and she has finished among the top five at the state cross country champs.
She’ll run cross country in the fall for the Grizzlies, but what she’ll during the track and field season is still to be determined.
She can clearly do distance events. She ran the 1,600 for fun earlier this season and, in miserable conditions, ran in 5 minutes 14.02 seconds, which is the school record and the 16th best time in the state. She’s also run the steeplechase. Three state titles show she can do hurdles.
The rest of the season, will be dedicated to the hurdles.
“I have been off to a bit of a slow start,” Colyer said.
Colyer is the second North Kitsap state champ to compete in Division I track and field. Long/triple jumper Alex Lanzafame is going to Princeton.
