The Federal Way boys track and field team have been unbeatable in the South Puget Sound League Central Division — literally.
The Eagles' last dual-meet, regular-season loss came back in 2007 when they finished second behind Kentwood in the SPSL North Division. Since then, Federal Way has won the last four league championships and seem to be on their way to its fifth-straight.
The Eagles moved to 3-0 in the SPSL Central with an 88-47 victory over Todd Beamer Wednesday at Federal Way Memorial Stadium.

The Eagles' other victories came from Michael Tate in the 200 (23.38), Albert Havili in the shot put (49-2), JayTee Tiuli in the discus (129-7), Mathias Forward in the pole vault (11-6) and Keenan Curran in the triple jump (42-9.75). Federal Way also won both relay races.
