Washington won seven events and captured its fifth straight girls track and field conference championship at the GAC Central meet Monday at Ft. Zumwalt East High School.

The Lady Jays accumulated 124 points to top the girls standings.

Ft. Zumwalt South finished second with 101 followed by Ft. Zumwalt North with 65, Ft. Zumwalt East with 44 and Holt with 40.

“We were a little short-handed with Emily (Stricker) getting injured during warm-ups. (Megan) Bauche and (Megan) Freitag stepped up and did a great job filling in for her events,” said Washington Coach Mike Olszowka. “The girls have had a great season and winning the conference once again is something to be proud of.”

Washington’s boys tied for fourth place in the team standings.

Ft. Zumwalt South took the boys crown with 101 points followed by Holt with 86, Ft. Zumwalt East with 83, Washington with 52 and Ft. Zumwalt North with 52.

“Overall, the boys had a super competitive day,” Olszowka said. “Our relay teams improved on their times. Travis Elbert took 10 seconds off his mile time.”

Washington also won both the boys and girls junior varsity team titles.

“We won 93 medals and had 68 new PRs (personal records) between the varsity and junior varsity teams,” Olszowka said. “Everything went well. It was a great day.”

The top five finishers in each event scored team points.

Lady Jays

Kirstie Leslie won three individual events. She finished first in the high jump at 5-2, the pole vault at 10-0 and the triple jump at 36-5.

MC Landolt also had three first-place finishes, two individual and one relay. She won both the 100-meter dash in 12.8 and the 200-meter dash in 26.5.

“Kirstie is now a 10-time conference champion. MC probably is a six- or seven-time conference champion as a junior,” Olszowka said. “When you have a base group of kids with that kind of performance, the other kids start to believe they can do the same thing.”

Megan Bauche won the long jump at 16-4. She also was second in the 100-meter high hurdles in 17.7 and third in the 300-meter low hurdles in 56.8.

The 400-meter relay team of Lauren Brinkmann, Sarah Brock, Bauche and Landolt won in 52.1.
