Bonney Lake, Sumner, Enumclaw and White River high schools are competed in last weekend’s state track and field meet.

For two days, athletes ran, jumped, pole-vaulted and sweated to the top.

The Bonney Lake Panthers boys team finished fifth overall in the state 3A competition, and the girls 13th.

Enumclaw Hornets had several contenders reach the top five in some 4A events: on the girls side, relay crew Taylor Tandecki, Carli Boger, Gracie Neu and Taliah Olson nabbed fifth in the 4X400 relay, and on the boys side, junior Connery McLaughlin placed second in the javelin.

The Sumner Spartans also had several athletes place in the 4A competition. On the boys side, relay team runners Michael Russell, Tre Weed, Connor Wedington and Derek Lee placed second in the 4×100 relay. On the girls side, Rhaven Dean earned the school’s fourth state championship in the javelin throw.

Last but not least, the White River Hornets came in on the 2A competitions. Relay team Chloe Mitchell, Chloe Anastaso, Emma Robbins and Grace Clapshaw nabbed second in the 4×100 relay, and on the boys side, Greg Piontek placed fifth in the pole vault.
