Traveling up the foothills to Mt Si high school, Issaquah Track and Field racked up one team win, 19 individual event wins, and 175 total PRs. This was an amazing showing for our TEAM and a great step in the right direction for our season.

Our first victories came in the short hurdles, where Sebastian Powers (16.39) won the 110m race and Shanthi Hall (17.47, SB) won the 100m race. Continuing to the mile, where we saw Brennen Rickey (4:28.54, PR) and Jane Harig (5:11.43, PR) fly around the track. The next victories on the track came back to back, as Toren Garcia won both the 400m (54.02, PR) and the 300m hurdles (43.03).
