Olivia Bannerot continues to impress during her sophomore campaign at Linfield College.

The Enumclaw High graduate was honored as the Female Field Athlete of the Meet on the season’s biggest stage, the April 22-23 Northwest Conference championships. The two-day meet was staged in Portland, Ore.

The former Hornet turned in a championship performance in the heptathlon, notched an eighth-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles and added scoring efforts in both the long jump and javelin to help the Wildcats place third in the NWC team standings.

Bannerot holds the Linfield record in the heptathlon and is headed to the Division III national championships, slated for May 26-28 in Iowa.

“To be recognized as (a) track and field athlete of the meet is pretty cool,” said Travis Olson, Bannerot’s coach at Linfield. “It caps off the conference season and is well deserved. Olivia has really stood out this year and made some big improvements, especially in the heptathlon, long jump and javelin. For her to be really recognized for that I was really happy for her.”

White River grad adds points for Linfield

Also scoring points for Linfield College at the Northwest Conference championships was White River High graduate Scott Anderson.

The Linfield junior, by way of Buckley, turned in a career-best effort of 42 feet, 10.75 inches in the shot put.

A two-year letterwinner at Linfield, Anderson also reached the shot put finals during the 2015 NWC championships.
