County teams have top performers at Districts


Blaine, Lynden Christian, Meridian and Mount Baker competed in the Class 1A District 1 girls' track and field meet on Friday, May 16, at Lynden Chrisitian High School. Official results were not available at press time.

Blaine's Olivia Adams won the pole vault and Kieya Villars won the 300 hurdles, Blaine coach Carey Bacon said.

Chynna Phan won the 800 for Mount Baker and Kelsie Nern won the 3,200. The Mountaineers also qualified their girls' 4x400 relay team for tri-districts, Mount Baker coach Tyler Mitchell said.

Katherine Dunford took second in the pole vault and Shelby Miles was third in the 1,600, he added.

"It was one of the most prideful events I've had as a coach," Mitchell said in a phone interview. "The kids are doing everything you ask of them."

Nooksack Valley's Amy Jo Murphy took third in the 3,200, setting a school record with a time of 11 minutes, 43.28 seconds, and Michaela Yonkman was second in the 100 hurdles, coach Robb Myhre said.

Lynden Christian's Hannah Rusnak helped the 4x100 relay team break its own school record and tied the school record in the 100, Lyncs coach Kent De Hoog said.

Class 1A Tri-Districts begin at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at King's High School in Shoreline.
