Tacoma’s athletes got themselves familiar with the track at Mount Tahoma High School on Wednesday.
As great as the Tacoma All-City Meet is, how could you blame them for thinking about the state track and field championships less than a month away that will be held at the same venue?
Wilson’s Trevon Powe hopes to be there from May 28-30 just like last year when he placed sixth in the 110-meter hurdles and seventh in the 300 hurdles. He took first place in the 110 hurdles and both the 100- and 200-meter sprints in Wednesday’s all-city meet.
His time of 14.99 seconds in the 110 hurdles is the ninth-best in the 3A classification this year.
Lincoln took the boys team title, edging Wilson 104-100.5. Stadium finished third with 81.5 points, Mount Tahoma was fourth with 41 and Foss took fifth with 25.
Lincoln’s James Mwaura won the 800 in 2 minutes, 4.53 seconds, Antonio Hernandez won the 1,600 in 4:55.54 and Clay Hunter-Douglas finished behind Stadium’s Shay Glackin Coley in the 3,200.
James Mwaura, and Antonio Hernandez won both of the long distance events for the Abes, who won the meet just 3.5 points ahead of the Wilson Rams
Stadium’s Demachae Booth tied with Lincoln’s Darien Williams in the high jump at 5 feet, 8 inches and Lincoln’s Dehonta Hayes won the long jump with a leap of 20 feet, 8 inches.
The Wilson High School girls track team beat Lincoln for first plays in the girls meet with 118.5 points to Lincoln’s 93.5. The Rams took first in 10 events, including Aujanique Doss winning the 200 and high jump.
