Lindstrom wins hurdles, boys tops in 4x800 at Pacific County Track Meet

ILWACO — From about 1920 to the 1960s the Pacific County Track Meet was the premiere event on everyone’s track schedule, including Cathlamet (now Wahkiakum). For the Raymond boys’ juggernaut and the Valley girls, who edged South Bend, the meet still had plenty of success stories April 30 at Ilwaco’s Peterson Field.

For the Ilwaco girls who placed third among six teams, Valerie Lindstrom was a double-winner in both hurdles races, Cindy Pacheco won the javelin throw and the 4x400 relay team of Hannah Ellsworth, Lindstrom, Pacheco and Merissa Cass also were of blue ribbon quality.

The Fishermen boys’ contingent was fourth, edging Wahkiakum by two points. Evan Sutherland won the 1,600 by .31 seconds over his brother Corbin, Dylan Wortman was tops in the 3,200 and Kenny Price was right by winning the 400-meter race. The Sutherlands, Wortman and Price were tops in the 4x800 relay, a race run only at invitational meets and not in league, district or state competitions.

Lindstrom finished the 100-meter high hurdles in 17.32 and had a personal record (PR) in the 300-meter low hurdles in 55.7. The 4x400 Lady Fishermen relay team was timed in 4:39.76 and Pacheco tossed the javelin 105-feet-2. She was also fourth in the discus (81-feet-10).

Evan Sutherland caught and passed his brother at the finish line of the 1,600 in 5:00.47 and Corbin’s time was 5:00.79. Kevin Johnson placed fourth in the 1,600 in 5:34.92, Daniel Scheller was sixth (5:41.89), Allen Salvador was seventh (5:43.32) and Terin Hankins was eighth (6:03.59).

The Fishermen 4x800 relay team won in a PR time of 9:16.18. “The 3,200 is my best event, I want to get a time under 10:51. I have already qualified in the distance running events for sub-district and I am trying to get better so I can do well there,” Evan Sutherland explained.

“My goal is to do well in the mile (1,600) and run it under 4:50 and make it to state in the relay and mile,” Corbin Sutherland said. The Ilwaco 4x400 team of Sutherland, Jacob Malmstadt, James Schenk and Price was second in 3:49.67.

Price won the 400 with a 54.57 race and he and Malmstadt, Keishi Thompson and Eric McMillan finished fourth in the 4x100 with a time of 48.94. McMillan was third in the discus with a spin of 103-feet-2.

“I wanted to go over 90 feet in the discus and 35 feet in the shot put today and I accomplished both. I want to qualify for sub-district and do well there,” McMillan stated.

Dylan Wortman was first in the 3,200 in 11:42.03, his PR, and Daniel Scheller finished second with a PR of 12:14.71. Terin Hankins, Joe Lurf, Scheller and Johnson were fifth in 4:47.23 in the 4x400 relay. Joshawah Eagle-Bear again tied his PR by clearing 5-feet-4 in the high jump to earn fourth place.

Tyler Clark was seventh in the 400 in 70:78, Salvador was seventh in the 800 in 2:34.98 and Malmstadt claimed seventh in the 200 in 25.62. Riki Thompson finished seventh in the long jump (16-feet-2) and Hankins was eighth in the pole vault by clearing 8-feet-6. Tom Odneal was eighth in the discus with a toss of 87-feet-5, beating teammate Zak Berteaux by a mere five inches.

“I will not be able to go to the sub-district meet because I am having knee surgery the day before, even though I have qualified in the throwing events. My javelin throw of 124-feet-8 today is getting up there near my PR,” said Odneal.

“I wanted to PR in the javelin today, with a throw of 130 feet, and I was less than four feet from doing that,” Berteaux said.

Lacie Cutting was second in the 1,600 in 7:38.11, fourth in the 200 in 55.7, seventh in the 100-meter hurdles in 20.82 and eighth in the 100 in 15.93.

Katie Kelly placed seventh in 100-meter dash in 15.73.

Cass was sixth in the pole vault (7 feet). The versatile Ellsworth was fourth in the high jump (4-feet-2), sixth in the discus (72-feet-7) and sixth in the javelin with a PR of 81-feet-10.
