Bremerton's Kennedy takes fifth at state
Bremerton's Kyle Kennedy placed fifth in the boys javelin over the weekend at the Class 3A state track and field championships at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.
The sophomore posted a personal-best 187-foot-8-inch throw in Saturday's final. Kennedy also qualified for state in 2008, finishing ninth at 175-07.
Teammate Jarell Flora, a junior who had never participated in track prior to this season, qualified for the finals in the boys 400-meter race, taking sixth in 50.00 seconds. Michael Berry of Rainier Beach won in a landslide at 47.93, more than a full second ahead of second-place finisher Josh Moore of Franklin Pierce (49.23).
Flora and Kennedy combined for seven points in the boys' team standings, good for 29th overall.
