    Arlington's Lyndsay Leatherman throws the discus during last year's state track and field championships. Leatherman finished third and is hoping to better that finish today.

EVENT TO WATCH
4A girls discus

Arlington thrower and University of Washington commit Lyndsay Leatherman is trying to better her third-place finish in the discus, but a teammate might be standing in her way.
Arlington's Justean Landis is coming off of a district championship after throwing a persional-best 132 feet, 4 inches on the first day of the bi-district meet at Lake Stevens High School on Wednesday. That was nearly 4 feet further than Leatherman.
Leatherman still has the better mark between her and her teammate, having thrown 134-0 on March 27 — the third-best throw this season in 4A.
Both Leatherman and Landis will be battling Heritage's Guadalupe Mendoza, who has the best throw in 4A this season at 136-9, and Moses Lake's Elly Johnson, whose best throw of 133-10 is just behind Leatherman.
Other events to watch
3A girls high jump: Stanwood's Madison Yerigan set a personal record and the best mark in 3A this season with a jump of 5-7 in the high jump in the 3A District 1 meet this past weekend. This weekend she'll be battling Kamiakin's Andrea Stapleton (5-6.5) and Holy Names' Olivia Vincent (5-6) for a state title. ... 4A girls triple jump: Jackson's Anna Pischer is tied for the fourth-best jump (36-11.75) with Inglemoor's Anna Richards in 4A this season. She lost out to Richards for the bi-district title this past weekend, but Pischer is looking to get revenge today. ... 3A girls javelin: Shorecrest teammates Katherine Taylor and Aiko Mizumori-Canfield have the second- and fourth-best throws in 3A this season, respectively, with Mizumori-Canfield winning the district title. ... 4A girls 1,600: Lynnwood's Mikayla Pivec set a personal record in this past weekend's bi-district meet, breaking the 5-minute mark with a time of 4:58.62. She joins Jackson's Jessica Rawlins (4:59.77) in the top 10 in the state in 4A in the event. Both Pivec and Rawlins likely won't be able to catch Camas' Alexa Efraimson or Central Kitsap's Rose Christen, but a third-place finish is definitely in range. ... 2A boys 1,600: Lakewood's Douglas Davis recorded a personal-best time of 4:18.75, but finished just three-hundredths of a second behind district champ Devon Grove. Davis and Grove will battle it out with Chad Stevens and Scott Kopczynski, both of East Valley of Spokane.
