PREP BOYS’ TRACK AND FIELD: Five to watch

Drew Norvell

Sehome, sr., throws

Norvell is one of many big-time and big-sized Sehome throwers this year. He took third in state in the shot put a season ago and placed seventh in the discus. He could be a real contender to win a shot put title and should be one to watch at every meet.

Benjamin Doucette

Bellingham, jr.,

hurdles

Doucette has made remarkable progress since he began hurdling his freshman year. Last season he made a great postseason run and finished third in the 110 hurdles at the state meet, running a 14.95-second PR.

Chais Sugden

Squalicum, sr.,

middle distance

Sugden seemingly came out of nowhere last spring to win a 800-meter state championship. With last year’s success and another offseason to train, there’s little reason to think the senior shouldn’t vie for back-to-back titles.

Jesse Phan

Mount Baker, sr.,

middle distance

Phan gives Mount Baker its only returning state participant from a year ago, and the senior will be hungry to move up the podium after placing sixth at state in the 800 meter. He’ll also be looking to guide a relay team into the postseason.

Bryce Sterk

Lynden, sr., hurdles

Sterk already has committed to play football at the University of Washington, but he’ll be looking to end his career with another strong track and field season. He should be a force in 300 hurdles and also be a pivotal piece to a Lynden 4x400 relay.
