Team effort carries Jackson to victory

EVERETT — A solid team effort can make a coach forget how cold he is.

Eleven different members of the Jackson boys track team won events on Thursday, helping the Timberwolves earn a cold victory in a Wesco South meet at Everett Memorial Stadium.

“It started with a little hail,” Jackson boys coach Eric Hruschka said of the conditions for Thursday’s meet. “Had a lot of cold wind in the middle and it finished with just cold.”

The Timberwolves won 13 ­of the 17 events, including two relays and 11 individual competitions, en route to 109 points. Lynnwood was second with 50 points and Meadowdale third with 8.

“We won 11 events, all with different winners, that’s pretty rare,” Hruschka said. “We had a lot of young kids win for the first time … which is great for the future of our program.”

In his first time competing in the 800-meter run, Derek Woolsey finished with a time of 2 minutes, 7 seconds to lead a Jackson sweep of the top four places. The Timberwolves also swept the top four spots in the 1,600 and 3,200.

“We swept all the distances races,” Hruschka said. “(Woolsey) is in his first year of track and he wins the 800 in his first time running it.”

Jackson sophomore Timothy St. Marie set a personal best in the shot put with a throw of 42 feet. Hruschka said St. Marie “had a great day … he’s really close to our (school) sophomore record, which is held by Johnie Kirton, who plays for UW now.”
