Final update: North Kitsap has 69 points. Sehome has 67. NK is
first Kitsap team to win team track title since South Kitsap in the
Another update: One event left. North Kitsap has a six-point
lead on Squalicum, which has no more points available. NK has a
10-point lead on Sehome, which has a 4×400 relay team remaining. As
long as Sehome doesn’t win the event, NK wins state team title. If
Sehome, wins it shares title with NK.
Update: With two events remaining, things are close. North
Kitsap leads with 65 points and Squalicum has 63 and Sehome has
North Kitsap has Indigo Williams remaining in the 200. Squalicum is
done. Sehome is the threat. They have the top seed in the 200 and
4×400 relay. Two wins would give them 73 points, meaning Williams
would need eight points in the 200 (a second-place finish) to tie
This is going to be close.
There’s five events remaining in the 2A girls track and field
meet, and the Vikings have positioned themselves to win the team
NK has 62 points with points to come in the discus and 200. Sehome
is in second place with 47 and points to come in the 200 and discus
and possibly the 1,600. Bellingham is third with 46 and points in
the 200 and 1,600. Squalicum is fourth with 43 and has points
mostly left in the discus (unless there’s some upsets).
The only team title for a Kitsap came in the early 1990s when the
South Kitsap girls won back-to-back AAA titles.
NK has had big performances all weekend with athletes popping
personal bests left and right. Alex Lanzafame won triple and long
jump titles. Reagan Colyer swept the hurdles events. Indigo
Williams is piling up points in the 100 and 200 and is part of two
relays to win points. The 4×100 relay — which saw the meet record
it set last year get broken by Bellingham — took second for eight
big points. Lexi Simmons is putting points in the shot put and
likely the discus.
It’s still early in the day here at Mount Tahoma for the state
track and field meets.
North Kitsap has already piled up two state titles. Reagan Colyer
won the 300 hurdles in an impressive 43.97. It goes with the 100

You can call your email campaign to a halt.
I give up.
Dittmer, the former track and field coach at Crosspoint who now
helps at North Mason, and I have had a friendly track-nerdish
debate the past few years.
Should it be 400 relay or 4×100 relay?
Dittmer has argued tirelessly that it should be 4×100 relay as just
about every coach and organization around the world calls it.
In my corner? A commitment to writing well and the world of

Kamina Flemming, Reagan Colyer, Kristin Brown and Indigo Williams
set a Class 2A state meet record with a time of 48.49. It broke the

Amber Johnson, Christina Lake, Mischa Jones) in 1991.
For Colyer, the school and West Sound hurdle records were the same
NK’s Kari Near ran the 100 hurdles in 14.87 in 1984. Convert that
hand-timed mark to FAT (fully-automated timing) and you get 15.14.
Colyer ran a 14.90 last year.
In the 300 hurdles, NK’s Cristen Sandberg ran a 44.39 in 1990. That
converts to a 45.04. Colyer ran a 44.43 last year.
