Running in the rain: Local prep athletes survive the weather

Mariner hurdler Stephen Anderson and the Shorewood girls sprinters were among the standouts.

EVERETT — Mariner junior Stephen Anderson got what he needed out of Thursday’s tri-team track and field meet on a rainy, gloomy evening at Goddard Stadium.

The Marauders, along with the rest of the entries from Shorewood and Monroe, battled through a classic case of early-April showers in the mid-season event.

“Competing on days like this is really important,” Mariner coach Dave McFadden said after the meet. “You never know when we get to the end of the season in May. … This is Washington, it could be snowing or it could be 75 or 80 degrees. You just never know.”

The versatile Anderson took first in the boys 110-meter hurdles, beating out second-place finisher Jaden Marlow of Shorewood by less than a quarter of a second, finishing in 15.51 seconds. He also won the 300 hurdles (42.51) and triple jump (40 feet, 3 1/2 inches).

“The 300 was kind of like. … Just go out and cruise it,” Anderson said. “In the 110, I had some competition, so I actually had to run in that one today.”

Anderson also booked it as the anchor for the Marauders’ winning 400 relay team (45.92), finishing off the last leg after set-ups from Jaydeon Am, Demarri Russell and Nik Rice.

“I think this was a good meet,” Anderson said. “Some schools bringing out some good competition, but Washington weather is so unpredictable. It’s crazy. … The colder it gets, muscles tighten and fatigue sets in quick.”

Despite the non-favorable weather, the Shorewood girls’ sprinters made the best out of things as well. The Stormrays swept the sprints, taking first in the 100, 200 and 400. Sophomore Mila Fotinatos claimed first in the 100, finishing in 13.12 seconds. Junior Hanna Bruno and senior Madeleine Brouillard each set personal best-times in their races, Bruno winning the 400 in 1:01.81 and Brouillard winning the 200 in 27.62.

Additionally, senior Harper Lara-Kerr broke a personal-best mark in the 400, placing second behind Bruno with a time of 1:03.62.

“(The weather) can be a little piece of it,” Shorewood coach Paul Villanueva said. “But I think a lot of our kids did a good job as far as bringing people along, encouraging each other and knowing that they can’t control everything.”

Monroe (162 points) won the boys competition, edging Mariner (141.5) and Shorewood (137.49). Shorewood (197.5) won the girls competition ahead of Monroe (140.5) and Mariner (81).
