Heartbreak and triumph for Washougal
Boys track wins league, but girls lose first meet
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
The Washougal boys track and field team earned another league championship last week, but the girls lost their first league meet in five years by one point.
"It's been a great five years. Not too many teams can say they had this much success in any sport," said head coach Dave Hajek. "I'm impressed by all the girls. They were willing to do whatever takes to keep the streak alive.
"I'm proud of the seniors who gave everything they had, and I'm excited for the younger girls who say they want to get the league title back next year," he added. "It means we have athletes in Washougal who care. That's all you can ask for as a coach."
