Prep track and field: Hawks and Lynnwood compete in 2A/3A meet


Alex Nguyen and Eli Edwards help lead the Lynnwood Royals’ boys track team to 97-44 victory over the Mountlake Terrace Hawks in a 2A/3A Wesco League track and field meet held Thursday at Edmonds Stadium.

On the girls’ side, the defending 3A state champion Royals slipped past the Hawks 76-69 in the dual meet.

Nguyen captured both the 100 meters and 200 meters for Lynnwood and was a member of the Royals’ winning 4×100 meter relay team. Edwards placed first in the 110 meter hurdles, the 300 meter hurdles and the triple jump, then helped the 4×400 relay team grab first in their faceoff with Terrace.

Edwards’ time of 41.98 in the 300 meter hurdles was the 15th best among 3A hurdlers in the state so far this season.

In the girls’ competition, Lynnwood’s Rita Sakharov was a multiple-event winner, taking the top spot in the 100 meters and the 100 meter hurdles. Samaria Sillito won the 200 meters, and then helped the Royals’ 4×100 and 4×200 meter relay teams win their events.

Lynnwood’s Malia Pivec placed first in the 1600 meters with a time of 5:07.72, the fourth best by a 3A classification runner and seventh best overall in the state this season.

For the Hawks, Thursday’s meet served as a tune-up as they prepare to compete in the NIKE Eason Invitational on Saturday, April 22. The Eason Invitational, held in Snohomish, will draw athletes from more than 70 high schools located throughout Washington state and southern British Columbia.
