Goldendale Middle School track stars hit their stride at the final meet of the season, held in Kittitas. With seven, first place finishes, the boys’ and girls’ teams both took second place overall, finishing a season full of new school records.

Ocean Bryan set a new record in the 200 meter dash with a time of 28.84 and took first with a lean at the finish line. Allison Gilliam out-sprinted Nadia Smith (1.08:97) to win the 400 meter in 1.07:84 for another school record.

Throughout the season, the relay team of Bryan, Smith, Gilliam and Clear set three new school records, including the 4 x 100 relay in a time of 57.04, and the 800 medley relay, first with a time of 2:15.60, and then again with a time of 2:12.10. At the final meet, with Clear injured, teammate Maddie Cameron stepped in to fill the spot. After an exciting race, with a dropped baton and some stellar performances, Bryan leaned across the finish line to defeat the team from Riverside Christian for the 800 medley relay win.

On the boy’s side of competition, Dillon Rising set a fast pace and led the 1600 meters from start to finish for the win, following up his new school record set the previous week of 5:31.60.

Maverick Frantum won the triple jump with a distance of 32-11 and Jacob Heibert won the high jump, clearing 5-feet. The relay team of McKay Knowlton, Heibert, Leroy Miller and Michael Jagelski won the 800 medley relay, tying the school record with a time of 1:56.25.

“We had a great season,” said Head Coach Maureen Baughan. “We had 54 kids turn out originally, so we had a large group of athletes to work with. Everyone who competed set new personal bests more than once, we set quite a few new school records, and we hopefully prepared some talented eighth graders to move up to high school track next year.” The team was also coached by assistants Mark Baughan and Jennifer Smith.
