Kamiak opens new track with dedication

MUKILTEO – The first meet of the season is always exciting.

The non-conference season opener was extra special for Kamiak, which had a special ceremony beforehand to honor Erv Ellis, a longtime track coach who passed away last summer.

In the end, Everett came out on top 83-62 at the newly-christened Erv Ellis Track, but Kamiak girls head coach Bill Costello liked what he saw from the Knights.

“Both teams competed extremely well,” Costello said. “Everybody brought it.”

Costello was happiest with Sean Beighton, who pole vaulted 14 feet.

“That’s great for a first meet,” Costello said.

As far as Everett went, Costello said Andrew Stiger’s javelin throw of 184 feet was “really impressive.”

“Those were the two most outstanding individual performances,” Costello said of Beighton and Stiger.

Axel Stanovsky started the season with wins in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races, finishing in four minutes, 45.6 seconds and 10:22.4, respectively. Joseph Giesick helped Everett along with wins in the 100 (11.4 seconds) and 200 (23.1).

Kamiak named the track for Ellis, a volunteer track and field coach at Kamiak for 12 years.

“After the opening introduction both teams competed inspired,” Costello said.

Costello said he enjoyed the meet because there was “healthy competition” but still “great sportsmanship.”

The Knights were not at full strength, with four of their top athletes nursing injuries.

“Our relays are gonna start coming in to place” when they get back, Costello said.

In the meantime Kamiak is looking ahead at the new season with plenty of optimism.

“Spring has sprung,” Costello said. “We’ve seen what we need to work on.

“We’re excited about the upcoming season.”
