Raider tracksters head into postseason

 


Raider Track wrapped up the regular season at the Ron Vanderholm Invitational in Royal City Friday.

No Raiders placed at Royal City.

“Our athletes continue to bring down their times and increase their heights and distances,” Head Coach Lori Adkins said. “We are excited to see what they can do as we enter the postseason.”

Today, the Raiders are in Oroville for the District 5-6 Qualifying Meet starting at 3:30 p.m. The top five athletes from each event will move on to the District 5-6 State Qualifier on May 21 in Ephrata.

At Royal City, Oliva Antone threw 25 feet in the shot put, a personal record. Keianna Vera leapt 13 feet, 5 inches in the long jump for a PR. Nathan Morrell threw 117 feet, 9.5 inches in the discus, his new PR.

Cameron Tillman improved his pole vault height, clearing a new PR of 8 feet, 6 inches. Kaden Trotter ran a PR in the 200-meter dash, finishing in 25.76 seconds.

Today’s meet at Oroville features only the schools from the Central Washington 2B North. Okanogan is the favorite to win, with many athletes currently ranked in the top five for the North. Liberty Bell is strong in the distance races and the high jump. Bridgeport and Brewster has many individuals who will provide strong competition for the Raiders.
