Landolt Leads 100 Dash

Washington's MC Landolt runs to victory in the girls 100-meter dash at the Washington Quad.

Winning the girls title and tying on the boys side, Washington hosted a track and field quad meet Tuesday afternoon.

The Washington girls breezed to the title with 112 points. Union was second at 69 while Warrenton scored 38.5 points and Borgia ended at 32.5 points.

On the boys side, Washington and Warrenton tied for the meet title with 64 points apiece. Union was second at 63 and Borgia took third with 60 points.

“We were very pleased with all our kids,” Washington Head Coach Mike Olszowka said. “We have said it before, we are a few kids short this season but what we are missing in quantity we are more than making up for with quality. We love watching our kids compete, they are showing a lot of passion and desire; those two things go along way in building great athletes and great kids.”

“We are very happy with our performances at the Washington Quad,” Borgia Coach Bill Stevison said. “We had decent weather at a beautiful facility.”

It was the first full meet since the Washington track and jumping facilities were upgraded last summer.

“I know talking with our coaches and meet workers, we were all amazed how much easier it was to run a great meet with a great facility,” Olszowka said. “We can’t thank the School District of Washington patrons enough for giving this community’s kids the best opportunities and facilities to succeed.”

Both Washington and Borgia competed Monday in a running events meet at Pacific. Field events there were called due to field conditions.

“We went back to back in meets on Monday and Tuesday,” Olszowka said. “We tried to back off the kids a little bit each day so they could get some experience at Pacific and still perform well on the first home meet in two season.”
