State track and field: Day 2 notebook

A trio of local hurdlers earn second-place medals

TACOMA — It was a strong day for hurdlers from Snohomish County.

But just not quite strong enough for a first-place medal to be making a trip north after the weekend.

Lake Stevens’ Chloe Pattison and Sean Martelles and Arlington’s Parker Duskin each finished second in their respective races Friday at the state track and field championships at Mount Tahoma High School.

Duskin, a senior, started the string of three second-place medalists from Snohomish County over four races when he ran the Class 3A boys 110-meter hurdles in 14.79 seconds, finishing just over a half-second off the blazing 14.24-second pace set by Silas’ Jaylen McCabe.

Martelles lost in heartbreaking fashion after a neck-and-neck finish that saw the Vikings’ senior fall short of a state title by a mere .o4 seconds in the 4A boys 110 hurdles. Martelles, who finished the race in 14.81 seconds, leaned forward to try and eke out a win as he and Emerald Ridge’s Asher Ogden approached the finish line, but Ogden did just enough to pull out a winning time of 14.77 seconds.

Pattison and Emerald Ridge star freshman JaiCieonna Gero-Holt delivered a thrilling finish in the 4A girls 100 hurdles. Like her teammate on the boys’ side, Pattison fell just shy of a state title in a narrow loss. The Lake Stevens senior delivered a personal-best time of 14.74 seconds despite running in a heavy downpour of rain, but it wasn’t quite enough to best Gero-Holt’s time of 14.71 seconds. Pattison finished nearly a half-second in front of the third-place runner and a full second ahead of fourth.

GP pole vaulter takes 3rd

Glacier Peak senior Katherine Streissguth took third in the 4A girls pole vault.

Streissguth delivered a vault of 11 feet. Newport-Bellevue’s Isabella Nilsen won the event with a vault of 13 feet, 1.5 inches.

E-W athlete wins three ambulatory events

Becca Hershey took home three medals in ambulatory events.

Hershey won the shot put with a throw of 19 feet, 1.75 inches, the javelin with a mark of 31 feet, 7 inches and the discus with a throw of 34 feet, 1 inch.
