Coupeville’s Conlisk shines among state’s best / Track

Coupeville’s Danny Conlisk’s strong showing at the Nike Eason Invitational Saturday, April 20, in Snohomish highlighted the efforts of local track athletes at one of the state’s largest events.

The Eason meet annually attracts athletes from more than 100 schools, bringing together many of Washington and British Columbia’s top prep performers from across all classifications from 1B to 4A.

Conlisk and Jean Lund Olsen represented Coupeville in the meet, while Oak Harbor’s Michael Fisken, Michael Gomez, Jasmine Ford and Cami Bristow also attended.

Conlisk finished second in the 400 with a season-best 50.16, trailing Ethan Willems from 4A Glacier Peak, who ran 48.51.

Willems has the state’s best time this year (48.16); Conlisk is eight with his 50.16, the second-best in 1A to Elma’s Cody Vollan (50.14).

He was also eighth in the 200 in a personal-best 22.55, which is the best time by a 1A runner in Washington this season.

Lund Olsen ran a PR 11.31 in the 100, taking 12th, and placed 19th in the 200 in 23.18.

His 100 time is the third-best among 1A runners in 2019; he also has the third-best 1A 200 time (22.96).

Fisken led Oak Harbor by nabbing seventh in the discus in a season-best 136-08. Gomez was 26th (120-05).

Gomez added a 14th in the javelin (147-03), and Fisken was 15th in the shot put (44-11.5).

Fisken owns the state’s ninth-best 3A mark in the shot (49-02).

Ford finished 28th in the discus (90-02), and Bristow was 31st in the javelin (89-03).
