The Thomas Jefferson boys track team picked up a solid victory over the Federal Way Eagles on Thursday, 71-64, while the Eagles girls were too much for the Raiders, 107-34.

The meet was held at Federal Way Memorial Field.

On the boys’ side, the Raiders used some of their depth in the distance events to accumulate enough points to down the Eagles. Jefferson took first and second in the 1,600 meters and 800 and placed first through fourth in the 3,200.

Sam Wambugu won the 3,200 in a time of 10:30.7 and was second in the 1,600 in a time of 4:46.0. Kyle Anderson won the 800 (2:08.2) and 1,600 (4:41.1).

Other Jefferson winners were Kyle Jenkins in the long jump (20 feet, 4.25 inches) and triple jump (45-0), Jared Bronson in the shot put (48-0), Aaron Gilbert in the discus (127-11) and Coury McGinnis in the 200 (23.2).

The Eagles picked up wins from Brian Crick in the 110 hurdles (16.2), pole vault (10-0) and 300 hurdles (41.9), Morris Anderson in the high jump (5-4), Anthony Dotson in the 100 (11.1) and Greg Warren in the 400 (52.5).

On the girls’ side, the Eagles dominated, winning all but two events.

Sophomore Erin Fitzpatrick, junior Anneke Bogardus and junior Chemy Kwon each won a pair of events. Fitzpatrick took the 100 (13.0) and 100 hurdles (16.5), Bogardus prevailed in the 300 hurdles (51.3) and shot put (29-11) and Kwon won the long jump (15-3.25) and the triple jump (31-11.25).

Other event winners for Federal Way were Lindsay Mitchell in the 200 (27.0), Jamie Watson in the 400 (1:06.9), Aimee Hafen in the high jump (4-10) and Leta Johnson (109-10).

Federal Way also won the 4x100 relay (52.2), 4x200 relay (1:52.3) and 4x400 relay (4:33.3).

Jefferson’s two victories came from Megan Loo in the 800 (2:37.9) and Amy Miller in the 1600 (6:03.6).
