The Lummi track and field team had another impressive showing at state as this year the 4x100 relay team won a state title.
Free Borsey, Quincy Lane, Raven Borsey and Trazil Lane finished first with a time of 44.62 seconds during the Class 1B State Championships on Saturday, May 28, at Eastern Washington University. They legged out Grace Academy’s relay squad who ran in 45.09.
Athletic directior Jim Sandusky said this season is another one to build on and grow the track team. Lummi won the team title last year.
“I think it’s important we continue to get kids out for track in the spring,” Sandusky said. “We developed enough recognition as a school that has good athletes, not just a good football team.”

Trazil had a solid day individually as he finished second in the 200-meter (23.30) and fourth in the long jump with a jump of 19 feet, 10 1/4 inches.
Sandusky said Trazil was disappointed with the second-place finish because he had the fastest time coming in.
“Things just have to fall in place just right,” Sandusky said. “You can’t control how good the athletes are on the other teams. He’ll be back again next year.”
Free, Raven and Trazil are all juniors.
Mike Washington placed sixth in the 100-meter with a time of 11.89.
The Lummi boys finished eighth in team points with 24.
