Ferndale Golden Eagles boys' track and field preview capsule

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDMarch 22, 2014 

FERNDALE

GOLDEN EAGLES

Coach: Ted Genger

Last year: Finished eighth at Northwest Conference Championships with 36.5 points. ... Finished 10th at Class 3A District Meet with 31 points. ... Didn't score at Class 3A State Championships.

Returning state participants: Shane Stockton (sr. discus),

Others to watch: Daniel Jones (jr. sprints), Ryan Pringle (jr. sprints), Dalton Cristelli (fr. sprints), Markus Hager (fr. sprints), Roberto Aguilera (so. distance), Jordan Cristelli (fr. sprints/hurdles), Ben Broselle (fr. sprints/jumps), Kyle Maassen (sr. throws), Carson Genger (fr. jumps), Donovan Campeau (sr. jumps/pole vault), Ryan Stephens (fr. jumps)

Outlook: Ferndale received 116 kids out for track and field this spring. It's an increased number of roughly 30 bodies from last season, and coach Ted Genger is excited about the potential of his boys' team. "Our freshman class is a very athletic class in all sports, and we ended up having a lot of kids coming out for track," Genger said. The Golden Eagles' lone returning state participant is senior thrower Shane Stockton, but Ferndale seems to have enough talent to be competitive as a team, having balance in nearly every area. Junior Daniel Jones leads a sprint group full of young up-and-coming talent. Sophomore runner Roberto Aguilera gives the Golden Eagles a strong distance athlete, and Donovan Campeau, Ryan Stephens and Carson Genger each are talented jumpers. Ferndale is loaded with throwers, but Kyle Maassen should be able to win points in the javelin.
