Numbers spell victory for King’s

In a dual track meet, having more members on a team means more points scored.

That was the problem facing the Coupeville Wolves when they went up against King’s Garden on Thursday.

King’s does not have either a girls softball team or a boys baseball team in the Cascade Conference and as a result, the Knights have a large number of track competitors.

In the boys half of the meet King’s was a 98-33 winner, while the girls bested the Wolves by a 91-44 score.

Despite the lopsided victory, several members of the Coupeville team turned in outstanding performances.

“Erin Hickey threw a season-best in the discus at 95-3 to place second,” coach Randy King said.

Chelsea Rosenkrance won the 300-meter hurdles in a time of 52.66 and teammate Sarah Vass placed second at 58.36.

The 4×200 meter relay team of Corrine Gaddis, Hickey, Alyssa Kelley and Kim Kisch won the event in 1:57 and the 4×100-meter relay team of Gaddis, Rosenkrance, Carmen Houck and Kisch were also winners in 55:10.

For the boys, Trevor Pigusch won the 400 meters in a time of 57.78 and Kyle King was the winner in the 800 meters at 2:06

Pigusch and King teamed with Brian Miller and Steven McDonald to win the 4×400 relay in a time of 3:44.36. The team is currently ranked sixth in the state in the event.

Jake Weaver was the winner in the 110 meter hurdles in 17.46 and Miller rounded out Coupeville’s first-place finishers winning the javelin with a throw of 157-4.
