The Washougal track and field athletes came home from Longview May 1 with crowns on their heads.
It was a special way to symbolize league championships for both teams. The girls finished first in league for the fourth year in a row, and the boys rose to the top of pile for the first time since the 2000 season.
"It was a very loud bus ride home. That's all I can say," said junior Joe Harris. "It's just really cool to be the league champions. It shows that working hard in our events and helping others has such a good outcome."
The Panther boys defeated Mark Morris 77-68. Isaac Bischoff grabbed first in the discus (125 feet, 6 inches) and shot put (41-7). Nathan Milojevic clinched first in the javelin (135-7) and the pole vault (12 feet).
