Redmond High’s Amy Sturdivant posted a pair of personal-bests last Thursday in a 4A Kingco track and field meet against Lake Washington and Eastlake.
The junior became the first female Mustang this year to crack 10 feet in the pole vault in addition to winning the 100-meter hurdles.
Sturdivant cleared 10 feet on vault, and she broke 17 seconds for the first time on the hurdles (16.74).
Sturdivant is peaking at the right time. The two-day 4A Kingco meet starts Wednesday, then concludes on Friday, with all events taking place at Liberty High School in Renton.
Other Redmond winners included: Allen Hall in the 100 (10.9 seconds); Mack Young in the 1,600 (4:25.1); Aiden Irish in the 3,200 (10:10.4); Jimmy Brookman in the javelin (184-9); Sarah Lord in the 800 (2:15.5); Devin McMahon in the 1600 (5:16.2); Ally Mueller in the javelin (107-7). In addition, the girls 400 relay team (Michelle Bollinger, Caileen Cox, Erin Handschin, Kaitlyn Parrott) and the 1,600 relay team (Parrott, Jillian Jaccard, Lord, Jenny Light) came away victorious.
The Class 4A state meet is May 23-24 at Pasco’s Edgar Brown Stadium.
