Glenwood sophomore Brooklyn Emerson came away with three top-six finishes over the weekend at the state track and field meet in Cheney, leading the Eagles to a 12th place team finish with 17 points.

She garnered eight team points with her runner-up finish with a nine foot pole vault mark, added six more with a third place showing in the 100 meter run with a time of 13.66 seconds, and took sixth in the long jump with a high mark of 15 feet, 10.25 inches, giving her three more points to the team total.

She also ran the anchor leg of Glenwood's 4x100 relay team, joining Nahaleigh Schuster, Bella Couch, and Mary Valdez in the event, finishing in 57.9 but missing the finals.

Emerson was the only Eagle girl to reach the podium, but a couple of other Glenwood girls had good showing in their individual events.

Junior Kinley Troh reached the state meet for the second straight season and competed in the discus throw with her best mark at 87-03. Last year, she competed in both the discus and triple jump, but just missed qualifying in the triple jump at the qualifying meet.

Junior Kinley Troh, shown throwing the discus on Saturday, competed for the second straight year at state in the event.

Schuster, a freshman, qualified in two events in her state debut. She took 12th, and was the second highest freshman in the preliminary heat for the 100 meter hurdles, but was a few spots behind reaching the finals. She also was in the high jump where a four-foot mark was her highest.

Kevan Bren and Derek Gimlin were the two lone Eagle boys in Cheney, both making it to the podium with top-eight finishes in their respective events.

Bren competed in the 100, 200, and long jump, with his best finish coming in the 100. The sophomore came away with an eighth place mark in the 100 at 12.47, just missed qualifying for the finals after running the 200 in 24.42 seconds, and finished one spot away from the finals in the long jump with his farthest mark at 18-3.75.

Gimlin recorded a massive personal best in his lone event, the javelin, with his top throw of 147-04 besting his old PR by over six feet.
