Nathan Morrell competes at state track meet


Nathan Morrell represented the Lake Roosevelt Raiders at the WIAA State 1B, 2B, 1A Track Meet at Eastern Washington University Saturday.

Morrell threw the discus in the first flight, which included all the other District 5-6 competitors from the week before.

The weather on May 28 was cool with a intermittent wind.

Morrell’s first throw was from the standing position. He fell away on release and the throw went out of bounds.

On his second throw, Morrell threw using the full spin to record a distance of 103 feet, 5 inches. For his final throw, Morrell again used the full form, but threw off balance and the disc went out of bounds.

Morrell did not make finals, but with this experience Morrell looks to return to state and place next year.

The Raiders as a team this year will lose only one possible state competitor. The team has many returners who can improve and be challengers for district placings, earning a chance at qualifying for next year’s state tournament.
