Track athletes shine at SPSL meet
Following strong performances at last weeks South Puget Sound League track meet, area athletes are hoping to do just as well at the West Central District Meet Friday and Saturday at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.
Last week, Federal Way senior Brandon Keeler won three events and took fourth in another to lead all athletes at the SPSL meet.
Keeler won the 110-meter hurdles, the 300-meter hurdles and the triple jump. He took fourth in the long jump, which was won by Jefferson senior Kamarr Evans.
Jeffersons Jared Bronson took first place in the javelin. Decaturs Joe Isaac won the discus and finished sixth in the shot put.
In the girls events, Decatur senior Gayle Imran won the long jump and was second in the 100 and 200, both behind LaShawnda Porter of Kent Meridian.
Imran also helped the 4x200 relay team to a first-place finish and the 4x100 relay team to a second- place finish. Right behind Imran in the 100 and 200 was her cousin, Danitra Powell, a sophomore at Decatur. Powell was third in the 100 and fourth in the 200.
