Boys discus: Ferris’ Damon Unland uncorked the second longest throw in the country at the Arcadia Invitational last weekend, throwing the disc 190-3.

Boys 100, 200: One of the best athletes in the state in Wenatchee’s Isaiah Brandt-Sims will showcase his blistering speed. Brandt-Sims has the 7th best 100 time in state history at 10.62 and the 4th best 200 time in state history at 21.24.

Girls pole vault: Richland’s Elizabeth Quick is the Class 4A defending state champion and is using a new pole this season, hoping to get to 13 feet. She signed with the University of Washington this week.

Girls triple jump: Curtis teammates Kira Perkins and Kennadi Bouyer are the athletes to watch in this event. Perkins won the Arcadia Invitational last weekend with a monster 39-5.5 jump. Bouyer has only done the triple twice, but will compete in the event for the University of Mississippi this fall.

Girls mile: North Central’s Katie Knight is running in Pasco for the final time in her briilliant career. She is the defending state champion in the Class 3A 1,600 and 3,200.

Boys mile: Mead’s Andrew Gardner is the defending Class 4A state champ in the 1,600 and 3,200.

Girls 100: Eastmont’s Rebecca Tarbert, Curtis’ Kennadi Bouyer and Bellingham’s Alyssa Porter all have career bests sub-12 seconds. Bouyer is the defending Class 4A state champ in the 100 and 200. Tarbert took second in both events at the Class 3A state meet.

Girls 400: Kamiakin’s Ellie Heiden is the defending Class 3A state champion in this event. She took fourth at the Arcadia Invitational last weekend.

Girls 800: Kamiakin’s Megan Beauchene has the best time coming in, though Richland’s Lauren Perry and North Central’s Katie Knight are within a second of her.
