MARYSVILLE – Jumpers and speedsters will perform for Marysville-Pilchuck High School at the state track meet in Tacoma.

Coach Mike Cull said Trina Davis, a sophomore, has one of the best 100-meter times in the state so she could be a state champion.

She is also on the 4×200 relay that took first place at the 3A District meet. On that team are Catrina Wright, Gabi Crenshaw and Chloe O’Loughlin.

“They came together at the perfect time,” Cull said. Individually, Crenshaw also qualified for state in the 200 meters, placing fourth.

High jumper Summer Sanden has high jumped 5-foot, 3 inches and is hoping to break the school record at state, her coach said.

Finally, Jared Narag is the only one from the boys team going. The senior turned out for track for the first time ever. And he is only nine inches away from being named a member of M-P Honors, awarded to those with outstanding marks in school history.

“It can take a toll on the body,” Cull said of Narag’s event, the triple jump.

Narag has improve his jumping ability in the event 6 feet this year to 41 feet, 3.5 inches, placing third at districts.
