White River track and field falls to Washington Patriots

The White River High track and field program traveled Thursday to take on the Washington Patriots, with scores going the home team’s way.

The Washington boys won in a squeaker, slipping past the Hornets 65-63. It wasn’t nearly as close in the girls competition, where White River fell 67-43.

The Hornet boys were the recipients of seven first-place finishes. Trevor Schoon was a two-time winner, taking both the shot put and discus. Other winning efforts came from Hunter Hendricks in the 100 meters; Alex Anderson in the 1,600-meter run; Seth Berryhill, 3,200 meters; and Duggan Young, javelin. In addition, the quartet of Hendricks, Caden Sparks, Xavier Russell and Lucas Selby combined to win the 4x100 relay.

Taking second-place honors for the Hornet boys were Brandon Scheer, 800 meters; Berryhill, 1,600 meters; Young, shot put; Carson Swart, discus; Tyler Ussary, javelin; Andrew Northam, long jump; Matthew Huff, triple jump; and the foursome of Dominic Duarte, Dillon Fassler, Northam and Alex Rasmussen in the 4x100 relay.

Garnering third-place points were Hendricks in the 200 meters; Jadon Flanders, 800 meters; Ussary, discus; Northam, javelin; Spencer Hall, high jump and long jump; and Sawyer Mills, triple jump.

The White River girls had a pair of two-time winners. Gabrielle Sandsness was tops in both the shot put and discus, while Maci Goethals won the javelin and triple jump. Also claiming first-place honors was Delaney Lewis in the long jump.

Taking second were Brianne Wiens in the 400 meters and the long jump; Sydney Dysert, 800 meters; Jenna Guenthner, 1,600 meters; and Kelsey Bunker, javelin. Placing third were Shannon Carboy in the 3,200 meters; Andrea Entz, shot put; and Tabitha Feymuth, long jump.

The losses dropped both the White River boys and girls teams to 1-3 in South Puget Sound League 2A competition. The Hornet program is in action again tomorrow, Thursday, traveling to challenge the Fife Trojans.
