Kitsap student athletes having an impact at state

TACOMA — Halfway through the state Class 2A, 3A and 4A track and field championships, a handful of Kitsap athletes are still in the mix.

North Kitsap’s Siara Byers snuck into the girls’ 3A 100-meter dash finals Friday morning with a qualifying time of 12.63 seconds. Byers and her Viking teammates will run in a 4x100-meter relay qualifying round Friday evening.

Kingston’s Ruby Roberts qualified for the Class 2A 1,600-meter finals Thursday and the 800-meter run Friday. Roberts will compete in both events’ finals Saturday.

“I was in a really fast heat, so I was just trying to stay with those girls, I guess,” Roberts said after the 800-meter run.

Roberts finished fourth in her heat, with a time of 2 minutes, 16.24 seconds.

Fellow Buccaneer Jaime Schultz qualified for the Class 2A 300-meter hurdles finals with a time of 48.15 seconds Friday. Schultz will also compete in the triple-jump finals Friday evening.
