Stanwood’s Teichgrab grabs lead in decathlon

LAKE STEVENS – Stanwood High School senior Isaac Teichgrab is looking forward to summer break.

Teichgrab is leading the pack halfway through the 36th Annual Dennis McDonald Multi Events State Championship Boys Decathlon at Lake Stevens High School.

The two day event begun with the 100- and 400-runs and long jump, shot put and high jump field events Friday.

Teichgrab (3,231 points) finished first in both running events and had solid performances in the field events to take a 36-point lead into day two of the competition.

Casey Stevick (3,195) of Olympia is in second place followed by Morrey Brown (Kentridge) who is third with a score of 3,145.

Teichgrab’s fellow Spartan Kale Schmidt is fifth in the standings with 2,908 points and Brennan Frost (2,716) of Lake Stevens occupies seventh place.

Rachele Kloke of Stanwood is looking to end her high school career with a big win in the girls decathlon. Through five of 10 events, Kloke looks golden. She won the 100- and 400-meter runs and the long jump event. Kloke tied for second in the shot put and high jump event, giving her a day one score of 2,899 points.

Her biggest competition? Sarah Jackson, Kloke’s teammate on the Spartan track and field team.

Jackson (2,531) trailed Kloke by 368 points. Dani Weatherbee (2,310) of Port Angeles was third, followed by Lynnwood Royal Jennifer Quick, who had 2,042 points.

In the heptathlon event, Gig Harbor star and 4A long jump state champion Bree Leroy was leading with a score of 2,643 points after four of seven events.

Jade Langston (Seattle Academy) was on her heels with 2,606 points and Melanie Vertrees (2,483) of Kent Meridian was third.

Lake Stevens track and field star Brittany Aanstad (2,474) was fourth, 169 points behind the leader. Aanstad had personal bests in three of the four events.

Aanstad will look to gain ground in day two which includes the javelin throw, an event in which Aanstad has twice won 4A state championships.

Aanstad’s teammate, Britteny Tri, is right behind her in fifth place with 2,293 points.

Lindsey Vigil (2,230) from Tumwater was sixth, followed by Arlington’s Brooklyn Holton (2,172) and Kayla Shaughnessy (2,121) of Stanwood who rounded out the top eight going into day two.
