Coupeville sprint records fall at district meet / Track

In what may have been the “fastest” day in Coupeville High School track history, the Wolves broke two sprint records in the opening round of the district meet Thursday, May 9, at Lynden Christian High School.

Danny Conlisk and Jean Lund Olsen finished 1-2 in the 100 meters and both eclipsed Jacob Smith’s record of 11.12 set last year. Conlisk clocked a 11.04 for a new school standard, while Lund Olsen crossed the line at 11.06.

Not to be outdone, Maya Toomey-Stout broke the school record in the girls 100, taking third in 12.84, topping Janiece Jenkins’ time of 12.89 set in 2005.

Conlisk and Lund Olson were almost part of another new record, running 44.16, just .02 off the record set in 1986, to win the 4×100 with Tiger Johnston and Sean Toomey-Stout.

Conlisk rounded out an outstanding day by winning the 400 (51.18), helping the Wolves sit in third place in the team standings with 60 points. Meridian leads with 77, four more than South Whidbey.

Others placing for the Wolves were Sean Toomey-Stout (second, long jump, 20-09.5; fifth, 100, 11.48), Koa Davisson (fourth, high jump, 5-08), Ryan Labrador (fifth, shot put, 42-04.5) and Jakobi Baumann (eighth, 110 high hurdles, 18.14).

The Coupeville girls are in fourth place after day one with 43 points; King’s leads with 69.5.

Lindsey Robert finished second in the 100 hurdles (15.5) and second in the 4×100 (50.99) with Maya Toomey-Stout, Ja’Tarya Hoskins and Mallory Kortuem.

Others finishing among the top eight were Kortuem (third, 400, 1:01.78; fourth, pole vault, 8-06), Emma Smith (fifth, discus, 92-08), Ja’Kenya Hoskins (sixth, 100, 13.73) and Ja’Tarya Hoskins (sixth, 100 hurdles, 17.93).

The top four automatically qualify for the bi-district meet, which Coupeville hosts at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16, and 11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 18.

Other Coupeville athletes may qualify; those with the next best marks out of District 1 and District 2 will fill out the 16 spots for each event.
