Kamiakin girls tracksters dominate at Ram Relays

By the Tri-City HeraldMarch 24, 2013 

The Kamiakin girls won seven of eight running events and three more field events Saturday at the Ram Relays at West Valley High School in Yakima, running away with the team title by nearly 40 points.

Megan Beauchene won the 1,600 meters and Michelle Fletcher followed with a win in the 3,200 for the Braves. Andrea Stapleton (high jump), Kyra Brannan (long jump) and Elisa Grandemange (discus) also picked up individual wins.

But Kamiakin did serious damage in the relays, winning the 4x100, 4x200, 4x400 and the sprint medley. Southridge was the only other team to win a relay, taking the shuttle hurdles race.

The Southridge boys finished second to Mt. Spokane in the team race, winning three events— including Brenden Kelly’s 300 hurdles win.

Zach Kreider claimed the boys discus title, and the Bulldogs also won the 4x100 relay.

Kamiakin brought home two individual champs in Garrett Kraal (1,600) and Brendan Rexus (high jump). Chiawana took the 4x400 race.
