Raider track competes at state

Flowers takes second in shot put


Four Raiders competed at the state track and field meet on Friday in Cheney at Eastern Washington University.

Steven Flowers placed second in state in the shot put event, throwing for 47 feet, eight inches.

“Steven was certainly the highlight of the meet for Lake Roosevelt,” remarked Head Coach Lori Adkins. “He was edged out by mere inches by North Beach on the final throw.”

Ben Poplin from North Beach took first in the event, throwing for 48 feet even.

“Steven earned eight team points at state, which scored LRHS ahead of most schools in our North League division,” Adkins noted.

Elijah Harris competed in the high jump event, clearing 5 feet, 6 inches “with ease,” Adkins said. Harris took 13th in the event.

The 4 x 100-meter relay team, consisting of Devon Hobrecht, Traey Clark, Harris, and Flowers, took 14th place with a time of 46.97 seconds.

“They gave a gallant effort,” Adkins said. “Their time came in just off what was needed to get them to finals.”

“The support from LRHS family, students and community members was awesome,” Adkins added.
