The Bremerton track team is well represented at the state championships this weekend in Pasco with Jacki Hill positioned to bring home some serious hardware.

Hill won the 400-meter dash at the district meet, held last weekend at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma, with a 57.79-second clocking and is seeded third in the state in the event. The junior sprinter placed second in the 200 (26.2) and holds the fifth seed this weekend. She is also running the 100 at state, seeded 12th at 13.27.

Senior Christina Lawrence was 10th in the 200, just missing the cut by .39 seconds with her time of 27.44. Stephanie Himmelsbach was 11th and 13th respectively in the 100 and 300 hurdles events and both teamed up with Hill and Rosie Llewellyn to take 10th in the 400 relay. The 800 relay of Arianna Hernandez-Jones, Kia MacIntyre, Alain Hoffman and Llewellyn took 14th. Fellow Knight Angela Anderson was tied for 11th in the pole vault, clearing 8 feet even.

The girls claimed 13th at the meet Enumclaw won.

The boys take a larger contingent with Alex Griffin and Tyler Sechrest both poised to medal in individual events, and the 400 relay team competing as well.

Sechrest is the sixth seed in high jump after clearing 6-feet, 1-inch in his second-place performance at districts.

Sprinter Griffin is the ninth seed in the 200 dash at 23.09 and is in the 11th slot in the 100 (11.52).

The pair will also run on the relay, seeded 15th. Jamaree Wells, Chris Fleming and Alonzo Harris make up the rest of the relay and the alternate.

The 1,600 relay, which only swaps out Harris for Sechrest, was 13th. Individually, Wells was 13th in the triple jump. Bremerton’s Ralph Stembridge was 13th in the 400 with a time of 53.65.

The boys finished in 10th pace with 26 points. Lakes won the 3A title with 59 total team points.

The state meet began yesterday and continues to day in Pasco.
