Plenty of Clark County contenders at upcoming track and field championships

More than 80 athletes from Clark County high schools have qualified for individual events at WIAA track and field championships.

A list of all the athletes from local high schools set to compete at state

There are no sure things in sports but it sure looks like Clark County will have some champions at the state high school track and field championships.

Cody Wheeler of Hockinson comes to mind. He has the best mark of the year among Class 2A boys javelin throwers. Just so happens that another Clark County athlete has the second-best mark. That would be Jakob Braunstein of Ridgefield.

Then there is Alexis Leone of Seton Catholic. She won the Class 1A state cross country championship in the fall. This spring, she has the top times among the 1A girls in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs. 

Shaela Bradley of La Center might want to make space for some medals, too. She has the fastest time among 1A girls in the 100 and the 400, plus she has the second-best mark in the long jump.

In all, there are 86 boys and girls athletes from Class 4A, 3A, 2A, and 1A Clark County programs competing in individual events at their championships this week. (Including relays, that number should exceed 100 athletes.)

Several athletes have top-two marks in their classifications, according to records kept by athletic.net. (These marks might not be the same as the qualifying marks used by the WIAA.)

Look for a number of Clark County athletes to be making appearances on the medal stands.

Wheeler’s javelin throw at the district championship went for 201 feet, 4 inches. He is the second athlete in the state to clear 200 feet this season behind Dash Sherman of Class 3A Walla Walla, who hit 219-4.

Braunstein has the second-best throw this season in Class 2A, coming in at 185-0.

Other local athletes with a top-two best in their classification include Camas sprinter Madison Hubbard of Camas who has the second-fastest time among Class 4A girls in the 100 meters.

Two Evergreen athletes are up there, as well. Jonathan Landry has the second-best mark in 3A boys long jump. Grace Twiss is No. 2 in the 3A girls 300 hurdles.

In Class 2A girls, Jamie Mass of Washougal has the second-best time in the 800. Ridgefield’s Kelli Krsul is No. 2 in the javelin. 

The 4A, 3A, and 2A track and field meets run Thursday through Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma. The Class 1A meet is Thursday through Saturday at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.
