Hillary Norris’ three first-place finishes helped the Sumner High girls defeat Timberline 98-42 in nonleague action Thursday at Sunset Chev Stadium.

The senior runner captured first in the 800-meter run with a time of 2 minutes, 27.85 seconds. She won the 1,600 meters in 5:30.63 and the 3,200 in 12:14.21.

Ashlee Sincraugh won the 400 meters in 1:02.40 as the Spartans finished in the top four spots.

Kaylee Holloway was a double winner in the 100 and 300 hurdles. She won the 100 in 16.97, edging out teammate Karly Dedmon. Holloway won the 300 with a time of 50.70 as Dedmon again took second.

The Spartans won two of the three relay races. The 400-meter team of Leah Engelhardt, Jeneka Kilmer, Carson Blankenship and Leah DeDominas was first in 55:08.

Englehardt, DeDominas, Taylor Hobert and Jessica Vandergeissen won the 800 relay in 1:56.58.

Sasha Weber was a double winner in the field events. She won the javelin with a throw of 102 feet, 8 inches and the high jump at 5-0.

Carly Lange’s throw of 26-08.25 was enough for first in the shot put and Katrina Carter took first in the discus at 82 feet.

Michaela Trulson won the pole vault at 6-0 and Vandergeissen was first in the triple jump at 31-04.5.

Boys

Zach Berry won three races as the Sumner High boys defeated Timberline 88-55 in nonleague action Thursday at Sunset Chev Stadium.

Berry posted wins in the 800-meter run with a time of 2 minutes, 10.41 seconds, 1,600 meters, 4:40.24, and 3,200 meters, 11:05.33. After the grueling 3,200 run, Berry had enough left to run a leg in the Spartans’ 1,600-meter relay team that finished first at 3:53.82.
