White River's Brenna Liebel runs the 800 meter taking third in 2:22.27 for White River.

Four White River Hornets are headed to the Class 2A state track and field championship, based on their top five performances in last week’s district meet.

State competition is slated for Thursday through Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

The West Central District meet, staged at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner, saw three White River girls continue their season.

Jade Crawford placed second in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.61 seconds; Brenna Liebel clocked a time of 2:22.7 to place third in the 800-meter run; and Cassidy Kunst ran 47.91 to place third in the 300-meter hurdles.

For the Hornet boys, Sean Hayes threw the javelin 159-03 to place fourth.

For both the boys and girls, the top five in each event earned a state berth.
