Community sports roundup: Upstart wins Galloway 150

Gracin Raz finally ended Tyler Tanner’s dominating run at Evergreen Speedway.

The K&N Pro Series West racer became the first driver to unseat Tanner this season at the Monroe racetrack as he claimed the Galloway 150 Saturday night. The Galloway 150 was the second of six races in the Bud Crown Series for Super Late Models, the premier racing series at Evergreen Speedway.

Raz, who hails from Lake Oswego, Oregon, and is not a regular at Evergreen, ended up prevailing in a race that saw the lead change hands on multiple occasions.

Tanner, the defending Super Late Models points champion who won the first three races of the season, finished second. Brittney Zamora took third.

Trinidad earns All-America honors for CWU track

Arlington High School graduate Sidney Trinidad, now a sophomore on the Central Washington University women’s track and field team, earned All-American honors by finishing third in the 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday in Kingsville, Texas.

Trinidad qualified fourth with a time of 59.78 second on Thursday. Then in the final she ran a time of 59.49, which was two seconds behind the winner, Franklin Pierce senior CeCe Telfer, but just 0.28 seconds out of second.

“Sidney finishing top three for us is amazing,” Central Washington assistant coach and Lake Stevens High School graduate Brittany Aanstad told the Wildcats’ website. “Her first nationals appearance and she made a point to put her name on the national stage. She will do big things over the next two years.”
