North Kitsap boys win Port Angeles Invitational; girls tie for first

PORT ANGELES — The North Kitsap High boys and girls track teams were each part of a field of eight at the Port Angeles Invitational on March 17, and the Vikings came away winners on both sides.

The boys finished 10 points ahead of second-place Sequim while the girls tied for first with host team Port Angeles.

Senior David Blalock raced to victory in the 3,000-meter run. Donovan Leroy took home first in the steeplechase, but a large number of second-place finishes helped push North Kitsap past the Wolves. Connor Westby also finished first in the shot put.

On the girls side, Raelee Moore won two events — the triple jump (14-11 1/2) and as a part of the 4×100 relay team. Maia Larsen (13.51) and Annika Taylor (1:03.40) won the 100- and 400-meter events respectively; Freshman Alyssa Cullen won the triple jump and Lauren Weins (106-06) was the top javelin thrower.
