Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Seven Washougal High School track and field athletes qualified for the state meet by running, jumping and throwing in the friendly confines of Fishback Stadium Friday.
"Hosting a district meet is always special because you get to see the support from the community," said head coach Dave Hajek. "I'm always proud of what the people in Washougal do for the kids."
Michelle Greear grabbed first place in the discus with a throw of 109 feet, three-quarters of an inch. She also took third in the shot put with a toss of 32-8.5.
"I'm proud of my team," Greear said. "There's nothing better than being on your home turf and going to state."
