PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap’s twin threat Elise and Ella Hopper were double trouble at last weekend’s West Sound 4A-3A-2A state track and field meet at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

The Hoppers and their Wolves teammates helped elevate South Kitsap to a second-place girls team finish with 65 points. Placing first at state was Curtis with 68 points.

The senior Hoppers were a dual threat throughout the meet. They were joined by 4×200 relay team members Savannah Kambich and Marissa Crane, winning the 4A contest in a time of 1 minute, 42.08 seconds.

The Wolves relay team narrowly edged second-place Redmond, which finished in a time of 1:42.25. Curtis and Richland placed third and fourth, respectively.

The South Kitsap girls relay team placed an emphatic imprint on the meet when it dominated the 4×400 in a time of 3:54.29. Trailing by a significant margin was second-place Redmond at 4:01.63.

The girls came close to a winning trifecta in the 4×100 but finished second at 49.17 seconds.

In individual races, South Kitsap featured Ella Hopper’s first-place win in the 300 girls hurdles, narrowly winning that race in a time of 43.88 seconds. Her sister Elise Hopper took third place in the 400 with a time of 58.22 seconds. Teammate Crane was fifth in the 400 (59.33) and freshman Lauren Laws fourth in the 800 (2:15:59).

South Kitsap’s sophomore Grace Degarrimore was fifth in the shot put (37-9.25) and junior Emma Bermond Des Ambrois fifth in the girls javelin (120-8).
