Deja vu all over again

Trout Lake boys run away with D-5 track crown

It must have felt like deja vu all over again for Trout Lake's Mike Hansen.

The senior won three individual events and was part of a winning relay at last Friday's Yakima Valley District 5 Class B Track and Field Championships in Wapato, leading the Mustangs to their second team title in as many weeks.

Trout Lake won the Greater Columbia B League title May 7 with Hansen winning the long jump and the 100- and 300-meter hurdles events, and running a leg of its winning 4x400 relay.

Hansen repeated those performances in Wapato, helping the Mustangs accumulate 162 points on their way to a runaway victory in the boy team competition.

All told, Trout Lake qualified more than a dozen athletes (boys and girls) for this Friday's regional state-qualifying meet at Central Washington University in Ellensburg.

The Mustangs' list of qualifiers includes boys district champions Peter Schmid (100), Adam Paxson (1600) and Dale Dick (200), and girls district champions Adi Robertson, who doubled in the 1600 and 3200 races, and Jessica Moore (high jump).

Also winning two district championships were Glenwood junior Mitch Wheelhouse and Klickitat junior James Brewer.

Wheelhouse set a district Class B record in the discus with a throw of 156 feet, 11 inches. He also won the shot put.

Brewer's titles came in the javelin and the high jump. His 6-foot effort in the high jump was a personal record.

Glenwood junior Tony Leiter led a 1-2-3-4 Klickitat County finish in the boys pole vault, clearing 13 feet.

Annie Hess, a junior from Bickleton, prevailed in the girls shot put and discus competitions.
