Coach Pam Gale said her track and field team “did so awesome, it was crazy” at their first outing for the season.
The meet in Port Angeles included some very large schools and the Forks boys and girls came in ninth out of the 15 schools represented.
The best showing was by Sydney Christenson who won the discus with a 92-foot 3-inch throw. Gale said that Miguel Morales and Andrew Armas each came in third, Morales in the shot and Armas in the long jump. Kari Larson took a third in the 800 and 4th in the 3,000.
“We were up against big schools, I tell my freshmen, especially, that this is a growth chart, every week we will get better,” Gale said.
Gale also singled out Alan Ensastegui saying he had a great showing at the first meet. Gale praised assistant coach Charles Urlacher for doing such a great job with the distance runners.
“It is going to be a good year,” Gales said. “I am just so excited.”The Spartans will be in Tenino on Thursday.
