Several Raiders qualify for district


Cameron Tillman clears the bar in pole vault at Tonasket.

The Lake Roosevelt Raiders competed at the CWB League Championship meet in Tonasket on May 10, and several Raiders qualified to compete at the district championship in Quincy on Friday.

Traey Clark ran a personal record time of 11.91 seconds in the 100-meter dash to qualify for the district championship. He will also be running the 200.

"It is really an accomplishment to qualify in the sprints as a freshman," Head Coach Lori Adkins said. "They are highly competitive."

The boys' 4x100-meter relay team qualified by placing fourth, with a time of 48.57 seconds. The team consists of Cameron Tillman (starter), Traey Clark (second leg), Matthew Tillman (third leg), and Kyle Edmo (finisher).

"It takes our whole boys' team to run the relay," Adkins said. "They have been consistent and reliable this season. Although they have run faster, they still qualified with a clean race. We are anxious to see what they can do at district!"

Cameron Tillman will pole vault at district. "He is really improving in this event, just in time for the qualifying meets," Adkins said.

Keianna Vera has qualified for the javelin with a personal-record throw of 93 feet, two inches. "Her efforts continue to improve just at the right time," Adkins said.

The Raiders compete at Quincy on Friday, where the top four girls and the top four boys in each event will qualify for the state championships, to be held at Eastern Washington University May 25–27.
