Conlisk, Fisken qualify for Junior Olympics / Track and field

Coupeville’s Danny Conlisk and Oak Harbor’s Michael Fisken each qualified for the USATF Hershey National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships set for July 23-29 at North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro.

Conlisk and Fisken earned the national berth by placing in the top five in their respective events at the USA Track and Field Region 13 Junior Olympic Championships July 7 and 8 in Bend, Oregon.

Fisken will not be attending the national meet, however, opting to take part in a wrestling camp instead.

Conlisk, running for the Kitsap Fliers, placed third in the 400 meters in 50.21. Tony Pizzillo of the Spokane Speed Academy won the event in 48.87.

Conlisk also qualified to run the 200, 4×400 and 4×800 at the regional meet but cut back his workload because of an injury.

Fisken, competing unattached, was fourth in the hammer with a toss of 29.78 meters. Elliot Clary of the Yelm Tornado Track Club took the event with a throw of 48.97.

Fisken was sixth in the shot put (13.05 meters) and seventh in the discus (41.3 meters). The winners were Jake Tucker (14.8) and Maxwell Moore (47.73).

Oak Harbor’s Michael Fisken takes fourth in the hammer throw in the Junior Olympic regional meet.
