The 1A District 1 track meet Thursday and Saturday, May 9 and 11, at Lynden Christian turned into the Danny Conlisk show for Coupeville High School.
While the Wolves placed fourth in both the boys and girls team standings, Conlisk dominated the individual results.
Conlisk was part of four winning events, set one new school record and nearly broke two others.
Thursday, Conlisk and teammate Jean Lund Olsen each trimmed the previous CHS 100-meter record while finishing 1-2 in the event. Conlisk crossed the finish line in 11.04 and Lund Olsen in 11.06, breaking Jacob Smith’s mark of 11.12 set last spring.
Conlisk and Lund Olsen then joined Tiger Johnston and Sean Toomey-Stout to win the 4×100 relay in 44.16, just .02 off the school record set in 1986.
Later in the day, Conlisk captured the 400 in 51.18.
Saturday, Conlisk collected his fourth blue ribbon, winning the 200 in 22.46, a mere .05 seconds off Smith’s school record of 22.41.
