Another season, another track and field conference championship for the Washington Lady Jays.

Washington’s girls and Ft. Zumwalt East’s boys won team titles at the GAC North track and field meet last Thursday and Friday at Washington High School.

Washington’s boys finished fifth in the team standings.

“We had total team efforts on all levels. We always get points from certain events, but for team success, we need points from every event,” said Washington Coach Mike Olszowka. “We had many kids step up and get us points and many of them also ran their season bests and set new PRs (personal records). We are very proud of the sacrifices and hard work that our kids have put in all season. It’s paying off. We’re peaking at the right time.”

The Lady Jays accumulated a team score of 190, well ahead of second-place Ft. Zumwalt South’s 154.

St. Charles West finished third with 99 followed by St. Charles with 49, Ft. Zumwalt East with 42, Warrenton with 42, Duchesne with 37 and Ft. Zumwalt North with 27.

Ft. Zumwalt East had a team score of 172 to take the boys title.

Ft. Zumwalt South finished second with 141 followed by St. Charles West with 123, Ft. Zumwalt North with 70, Washington with 63, St. Charles with 56, Warrenton with 56 and Duchesne with 12.

Washington also won the girls junior varsity title and was second in the boys JV standings.

These are the kind of efforts that teach our student athletes the most important meaning of Blue Jay pride.”

Washington travels to Jefferson City High School Saturday for the Class 4 District 5 meet starting at 11 a.m.
