Enumclaw girls track team improves to 3-0 | Track and Field

Maria Blad captured four events Thursday afternoon, leading the Enumclaw High School girls to a 77-73 victory at Auburn Riverside.

While the Hornet girls were squeaking past the host Lions, the EHS boys weren’t having nearly as much success. The boys walked away on the short end of an 88-57 score.

The victory kept the slate clean for the Hornet girls, who are now 3-0 in dual meet competition. Thursday’s setback was the first loss for the boys’ team.

Despite dreary weather conditions, Blad had a brilliant Thursday. She won both the 100- and 300-meter hurdle races, cleared 8 feet to easily win the pole vault and sailed 15 feet, 9 inches to take top honors in the long jump.

Also picking up first-place points for the Hornet girls were Katie Christensen, who ran the 400 meters in 1 minute, 4.73 seconds; Lindsay Ross, who finished 800 meters in 2:34; and Samantha Engebretsen, who polished off 3,200 meters in 12:14.26. KC Moulden was again a two-time winner, taking the shot put with a heave of 33-11.75 and the discus with a toss of 108-8.

Adding to the winning total was the first-place quartet of Olivia Bannerot, Katie Holland, Diane Lindsey and Christensen, who won the 4x200-meter relay with a time of 1:49.41.
