Five tracksters move on to districts


Five members of the Raider boys’ track team qualified from the sub-district competition May 11 to this Saturday’s district meet in Ephrata.

At the sub-district level last week at Oroville, the Okanogan Bulldogs won both the boys’ and girls’ titles.

For the Raiders, Nathaniel Hall advanced in the 100-meter dash, finishing fourth with a personal-record time of 11.71 seconds. Robert George advanced in the 110-meter high hurdles, finishing fifth in 18.35 seconds.

In field events, Nathan Morrell moved on to districts in discus, taking fifth by throwing 115 feet, 9 inches. Matthew and Cameron Tillman each qualified in the pole vault, with Cameron Tillman earning the sub-district champion title by clearing a PR height of 9 feet. Matthew Tillman placed 4th, clearing 8 feet, 6.25 inches.

No Raider girls at Oroville qualified for districts, but Jonell Denschel closed the season by throwing a PR in the javelin of 56 feet, 8 inches. Marisha Hobrecht also closed the season by throwing 60 feet in the discus, also a PR.

Keianna Vera ran a PR in the 100-meter in 14.63 seconds. Madeline Piccolo also ran a PR in the 100, finishing at 15.32 seconds. At Ephrata on Saturday, the Raiders will be competing against all the 2B schools in both districts 6 and 5. All races and field events are considered finals, as only eight will be competing in each event. The top four in each event will move on to the state 2B meet at Eastern Washington University May 26 – 28.

Saturday’s district meet at Ephrata starts at 11 a.m. at Ephrata High School.
