TENINO - Kelly Freese won the 3,200-meter race at Tenino in 12:40 and Jordan Williams took first in the 800 with a time of 2:06. They were the only two winners for Ilwaco in the 11-team Tenino Invitational Track Meet Saturday. If you like wind, rain, and cold weather then you would have loved Tenino Saturday. They were not good conditions, however, for a high school track meet, as the boys placed fourth and the girls 10th.
Kelly Freese also came in third in the 1,600 in 6:08 and there were no Lady Fishermen who won second place ribbons. Katie Freese was fourth in the 800 (2:43) and Bonnie Perez was fourth in the javelin throw with a mark of 89-feet 9-inches.
The Lady Fishermen 4x400-relay team of Perez, Banesa Chen, Freese and Freese was fifth in 5:03 and Katie Freese was fifth in the 400 in 68.3. Perez was right behind her in the 400 with a time of 68.5, good for sixth place. Monica Millner triple-jumped 24-feet 4-inches and also scored sixth place points.
Ilwaco girls scored 30 points and were within four of eighth place while Steilacoom literally ran away with the meet by amassing 130, well over twice as many as second place Chehalis. Elma won the boys' side with 106 and the Fishermen were a distant fourth with 51 tallies.
Besides William's first place in the 800, Eddie Knick was the next most successful boy trackster at the meet. He raced to second place in the 200 in 24.3 and was third in the 100 in 11.5. Carl Jackson was a pleasant surprise in the 1,600 as he also was third in 4:54. The boys' 4x400-relay team of Knick, Matt Kaino, Dylan Wirkkala, and Williams earned third place points with a time of 3:51.
Kaino was fourth in the 400 in 55.2 and fourth in the 200 in 24.8. Stephen Berglund also won a fourth place ribbon in the 3,200 in 11:00. Jackson was right behind him in fifth in the same event in 11:08. Shaun Peterson was fifth in the 1,600 in 5:02 to round out scoring for the Fishermen according to Coach Joe Williams.
