KW gets starts track season on right foot
Kings West might be fielding a small track and field squad again this year, but that doesnt mean the little B school wont pack a punch.
With a talented core of returning throwers and pole vaulters anchoring a team loaded with leadership, KW coach Dan Dittmer said hes very much looking forward to the new season.
Im really excited, Dittmer said after KW competed in Wednesdays Central Kitsap Invitational. Its nice to get the spikes and uni on and get back out on the track. It was a lot of fun.
Despite inconsistent rain and a bout with hail, the CK Invite went off without a hitch at Silverdale Stadium, as Kings West was able to start getting a feel for its strengths.
Returning are school record-holders Bryan Anderson (discus), Andrew Vodder (shot put), Chloe Mosey (discus) and Michelle Webster (shot put). Also back are pole vaulters Blake Waggner, Nick Webster and Caitlin Kramer, all of whom participated at the state tournament in the spring despite the fact that Kings West did not add pole vaulting until May of last year.
While Anderson is hurt right now (hell also miss time with a Ukraine mission trip), Dittmer said his absence shouldnt hurt the throwers. Rather, it strengthens them, as Vodder filled in with a new personal record throw in the discus Wednesday.
That was pretty good, Dittmer said of the duo, who are the first four-year throwers for KW. I was very pleased with that. (Vodder) and Bryan are really neat kids in and out of the classroom.
Mosey, who helped lead the Kings West girls, also has high expectations for the season.
Were looking for big things from Chloe, Dittmer said, adding that shes working on a specific strength training
