Charbonneau has already committed to Seattle University after finishing 10th in the 1,600 meters and 12th in the 3,200 meters at the 2A State Championships last spring. He's already turned in a 1:58.70 in the 800 this spring, which was the 2A's second fastest in the state entering Saturday, March 16.
Senior, Mount Baker
Dunford won every time he entered the pole vault last year except once, when he placed fourth at the BorderDuel. He claimed the 2A state title by clearing 15 feet, then won the Junior Olympics Association Championships with a personal-best 15-41/2. This spring, he's looking not only for a repeat, but to clear 16 feet.
What else can be said about the Stanford-bound senior? In addition to winning two state cross country titles, he added a championship in the 3,200 meters last spring with a time of 9 minutes, 1.86 seconds. He also finished second in the 1,600 meters (4:11.29). Don't count him out of winning both this year.
Johnsen already has collected a sixth-place state medal in the 3,200 (9 minutes, 24.14 seconds) and an eighth-place medal in the 1,600 (4:20.60). He also placed third at the state cross country meet, and he and teammate Reed Henderson once again make the distance events a strength for Sehome this spring.
Reed finished fifth in the 100 at the 2A State Championships (11.19 seconds) and helped the Storm to a runner-up finish in the 4x400 relay and a sixth-place medal in the 4x100 relay last spring. He opened this spring by turning in the fastest 2A time in the state in the 200 (22.92 seconds). Look for big things from Reed and teammate Jason Pfannenstiel.
