Kayhi track team leaves today to compete in the Stevenson and Mossyrock track meets in Washington. Last year, Kayhi had 5 athletes that placed in the top 3 in their events at the Stevenson meet. In discus Brendan Wong received 3rd place his sophomore year, and 2nd last year (losing by 2 inches).
“This year I’m hoping to bring back the gold,” said Wong.
“I am also hoping to get the gold in shot put. Shot put has sort of just clicked this year for me and i’m more confident.”
Senior Crist Carlson said that these first meets are to warm the team up for the rest of the season.
“We go there to get ready for the season, and see how we match up against teams down south,” said Carlson. We will also set our PR’s and try and build off of those all season.”
There are 5 washington schools at each of these meets. These are much larger schools, with over 1000 students compared to ketchikan’s mere 600. This year will be the first year Kayhi competes in the Mossyrock meet. Competitions will start at the Stevenson meet tomorrow.
