Henkle track and field teams sweep their competition

Henkle Middle School's boys and girls track and field teams were unparalleled in their first meet of the season here April 24.

The Grizzlies won all four team competitions, three by commanding margins of victory.

The closest competition was among eighth-grade girls, in which Henkle edged Goldendale, 67.5-64.

Kyle Hadley (1600, 800), Jose Viramontes (long jump, mini-javelin) and Forrest Williams (200, 400) each won two events for Henkle's seventh-grade boys, who scored a day's-best 123.5 points.

Williams also contributed with two second-place finishes (100, long jump), as did Christopher Farro (100 hurdles, triple jump).

Vince Cruse (100 hurdles, discus), Austin Krentz (triple jump, 1600) and David White (100, 200) added one first and one second apiece.

Henkle's seventh-grade girls racked up 103 points, led by double-winners Chelsea Ludwig (100 hurdles, 200) and Chani Weiler (100, triple jump).

Ashley Poole and Britta Knutson shared victory in one event (high jump). Poole finished second in two others (100, 200), Knutson in one (hurdles).

Alison Kreiter (long jump) and Casey McGray (discus) posted Henkle's other second-place finishes.

Andrew Culp took first in two events (100 hurdles, high jump) and second in two others (100, 200) to help lead Henkle's eighth-grade boys team amass a meet-winning 81 points.

The eighth-grade girls team won five of 14 events, including both the 4x200 and 4x100 relays.

In open events, Alycia Rohwer (1600), Ashley Neff (long jump) and Rainee Rohrbacher (triple jump) were victorious for Henkle.

Neff also garnered two seconds (200, 400). Rohwer (long jump), Rohrbacher (discus), Jessica Lundh (hurdles) and Kelley McNallan (mini-javelin) registered the team's other second-place efforts.
