Staff report

North Kitsap dominated the Olympic League Championship Meet on its home course, but Olympic was not far behind.

The Trojans’ girls finished second among 11 teams, while their boys team was third.

Olympic placed first in both 400-meter relay events. Its boys team, which is comprised of Ethan Szathmary, Jaleel Elmore, DeMarco Wilson and Keshun McGee, won the event in 44.19 seconds. The school’s girls team — Rachielle Abrigo, Stephanie Barr, Kristiana Holladay and Danielle Monzon — finished in 51.62, which was one-tenth of a second better than Coupeville.

Monzon also won the 100 dash in 12.72 and the long jump in 16 feet, 6 3/4 inches. The Trojans’ other female champion in an individual event was Sierra Adams, who won the shot put at 36-06.

On the boys side, McGee placed first in both the long jump (21-06 1/2) and the triple jump (46-0). Bremerton’s Malcolm Ransom was the other local champion — he won the 100 in 11.23.

Next for Bremerton, Klahowya and Olympic is the 2A Olympic League Sub District Meet on May 16 at Bremerton High School. The top five finishers in the Olympic League Subs go to West Central District III 1A-2A Track & Field Championships on May 22 and 23 at North Mason High School’s Phil Pugh Stadium. The 2A State Meet begins May 28.
