Bremerton Track and Field | Spring Sports Preview

Bremerton Track and Field

Head coach: Daniel McInnis

Key athletes (boys): Von Mejia, Noah Johnson, Spencer Anderson, Cedric Curtis, Alpha Cooper, Adam Sanchez.

Key athletes (girls): Tyishea McWhorter, Lauryn Chandler, Nyaijah Johnson, Te’Caela Wilcher, Trisha Mae Mabini.

Outlook: The girls 4×100 team of Johnson, Wilcher, Chandler and McWhorter reached the summit last season, winning a 2A state championship. All four are back to defend their crown this year, and Chandler will also get a shot to defend her individual championship in the 100 hurdles. On the boys side, Von Mejia ran the 100 and 200 at districts and was part of the team’s state 4×400 relay team with Johnson, Anderson and Curtis. Anderson also just missed out on qualifying for state in the middle distances. Look for growth from Adam Sanchez as a thrower in the discus and shotput.

Schedule: March 16, 11 a.m., at Cardinal Relays | March 21, 3:15 p.m., home meet w/North Kitsap, Olympic | March 23, 9:30 a.m., Curtis Relays | April 11, 3:15 p.m., home meet w/Klahowya, North Mason | April 13, 10 a.m., Lil Norway Invitational | April 16, 3:15 p.m., at Port Townsend | April 20, TBD, Nike Eason Invitational at Snohomish | April 25, 3:15 p.m., at Port Angeles | April 27, 1 p.m., 59th Annual Shelton Invitational | May 9-11, Olympic League championships at North Kitsap.
