Bothell’s Singh throws big for district javelin title; Cougar boys take first

An 18-athlete Bothell High contingent will be descending upon Mount Tahoma High this weekend at the 4A state track and field championships. Inglemoor will send five athletes to the premier event.

The Cougar boys won the District 2 title and the girls took second last weekend at the Southwest Athletic Complex in Seattle. The boys outdistanced second-place Issaquah, 146-103. On the girls’ side, Issaquah edged Bothell, 147.5-145.5.

Bothell boys winners were Dylan Singh in the javelin (170 feet), Kevin Liu in the 100 meters (10.78 seconds), Ryan Witters in the 400 meters (51.07 seconds), Jalen Ford in the 110-meter hurdles (14.90 seconds) and the 4×100-meter relay of Witters, Ford, Enoch Stevens and Logan McKinney (43.70 seconds).

Singh set a personal record by 10 feet on the sunny Friday.

“The weather was nice… actually, a major factor is that I just blank out and throw and be as aggressive as possible. No worrying about nothing, just compete,” he said. “It felt smooth and that’s all that mattered, and my coach told me the same thing.”

For the Cougar girls, Lauren Stavig won the 100 meters (12.24), Emily Gibson won the triple jump (35 feet, 10 inches) and Gibson, Kaitlin Bean, Jaiden Childs and Kate Johnson won the 4×100 relay (49.79).

Stavig also qualified for state in the 200 meters and the long jump. Theresa Mayanja qualified in both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles.
