Griffey, Argyle win sub-district track titles
Princess Joy Griffeys postseason journey to another state championship got off to a solid start Wednesday at the opening day of the South Puget Sound League sub-district track and field meet at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner.
The junior cruised to an easy win in her heat of the 100 meters to qualify for Friday and Saturdays West Central/Southwest District Meet at Mount Tahoma High School.
Griffey, who won the Class 4A 100-meter state title as a sophomore last year, ran a 11.85 in heat one of two and beat the runner-up by a second.
Griffey was the star on the girls side, but the SPSL South-champion Thomas Jefferson Raiders got the most participants through to districts Wednesday. The Raiders qualified eight individuals and one relay team during the first day of the meet. Competition continued yesterday at Sunset Chev Stadium (after press time) with nine more events.
The top three from each heat plus the next two best times in the 100, 200, 400, 800, hurdles and relays advance to districts. The top eight from the field events, 1,600 and 3,200 also advance.
On the boys side, Thomas Jeffersons Zach Argyle continued his strong season by winning the pole vault in Sumner. Argyle cleared 13 feet to outdistance Federal Ways Brian Crick (12-9).
The Federal Way 4x100 relay team also ran the best time Wednesday with a blazing 43.60.
