Inglemoor High won both the boys and girls Bi-District II/IV Track and Field titles on Friday and Saturday in Vancouver.

Which begs the question: could another state title be next?

The girls won all three relay races en route to scoring 104 points, ahead of Redmond’s 78. The boys scored 88 points, ahead of Redmond’s 74, thanks to Brandon Thurston and Ian Quinn winning individual district titles. Bothell finished fourth with 68 points on the boys’ side, and ended with seven on the girls’ side.

Thurston won the shot-put title at 53-feet, 8 inches, while Quinn won the pole vault at 14-0. Austin Victor got silvers in the two hurdle events, running 14.89 seconds in the 110 meters and 39.66 in the 300 meters.

The girls pulled out all three relay races, two of them coming in photo-finish fashion. The 4 x 100 relay foursome of McKenna Grimsby, Tess Parent, Ericka McDaniel and Megan Shinner finished in 49.82 seconds, ahead of Garfield’s 49.86 and Heritage’s 49.89.

Grimsby and Parent then joined Jena Roe and Brittany McKinney for the 4 x 200 victory, once again ahead of Garfield and Heritage. Inglemoor finished in 1:45.16, while Garfield was just behind at 1:45.37 and Heritage at 1:48.03.

The 4 x 400 team of Brittany Hungerford, Lacey London, Roe and Shinner completed the trifecta, beating Redmond by more than a second at 4:04.34.

Hungerford also won an individual title in the 800 meters at 2:17.85. Teammate Jamie Finch was the only female runner to break one minute in the 400 meters (59.47).

And Parent continued her remarkable sophomore campaign by blowing away the field in both long and triple jumps. Parent’s long-jump distance of 16-09.75 was nearly a foot better than anyone else (15-11.25). Parent did best the field by more than a foot in the triple jump at 37-10.25, with the next closest competitor nailing 36-02.50.

Bothell’s highlight was going 1-2 in the triple jump on the boys’ side, with Tim Clendaniel winning the event at 44-0.25 and Johnny Hekker right behind at 43-1.50. Distance runner Trey Parry took second in the 1,600 (4:22.34) and the 3,200 (9:53.25)

The state championships are this Friday and Saturday in Pasco. Inglemoor won the boys team title in 2003 and 2004, but has never won a girls title.
