It’s getting to be an old routine for Issaquah High School’s Eva Perry.
She broke her own school record in the pole vault for the fourth time Thursday in a 4A KingCo Conference meet at Roosevelt. Perry went 12-feet, which currently ranks second in the state and first in the conference.
Issaquah’s McKenna Hogan came close to a school record in the long jump, leaping 17 feet, 3 1/2 inches. She came within 3/4 of an inch of the school record. It was also the longest jump by an Issaquah girl in 36 years.
Both Perry and Hogan finished first in the events. In addition, Haley Jacobson had a pair of first places as the Eagles ran past Roosevelt 89-52.
Jacobson won the 100 meters in 12.9 seconds and the 200 in 26.5. She anchored Issaquah’s winning 4×200 and 4×400 relays. Teammates Lauren Bruner and Katie Zhong each had two first places, too. Bruner won the 100 hurdles and the 300 hurdles. Zhong captured the discus and javelin.
In the boys meet, Issaquah whipped Roosevelt 90-53. Jorrell Dorsey finished first in the 200 and the long jump. He also anchored the Eagles’ winning 4×400 relay.
Liberty girl gets four first
Ida Bakke of Liberty High School won not just one event, not just two events, but finished first in four events Thursday as she led the Patriots to a 110-40 victory over visiting Ballard in a KingCo Conference track and field meet.
Bakke won the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, long jump and triple jump. Liberty won the 4×200 and 4×400 relays.
Josh Gordon also had a big day for the Patriots in the boys’ meet. Gordon won the 100, 200 and high jump to lead Liberty to a 114-30 victory. Dylan Clark, of Liberty, won the 110 hurdles and the 300 hurdles. Liberty also swept the 4×100 and 4×400 relays.
Redmond plays home run derby against Issaquah
The Redmond High School baseball team showed why it is regarded among the premier Class 4A teams in the state Thursday when the Mustangs walloped the host Issaquah Eagles 12-1 in a KingCo Conference contest. The game was called after five innings because of the mercy rule.
Redmond slammed five home runs. Zach Abruzza hit two home runs. Dylan Davis, Pat McGrath and Jake Levin also connected for Redmond, which leads the Crest Division.
Gavin Schumaker drove in Issaquah’s run in the bottom of the fifth inning.
In other action, Newport blanked host Skyline 5-0. Newport pitcher Cole Wiper allowed just two hits and struck out 10. He also had two hits and drove in a run. Clayton Huber collected both Skyline hits.
