WAYLAND — The conditions weren’t ideal Thursday at the Ekstrand Relays but Washington goy some outstanding performances, namely Mitchell Driscoll, as the boys won the large school meet and the girls were second.

In the 100 meters, Jenah Greiner was first in 13.51 seconds and Isabel Bailey took third in 13.94. Kelsey Pacha won the 100 hurdles in 17.17. Liaden Fillinger was second in the 400 (1:14.35) and third in the 200 (32.17).

The 4x400 meter relay team of Pacha, Greiner, Leah Marek and Ashley Telleen won the event in 4 minutes, 34.97 seconds. The 4x8’s time of 12:09.43 was second with Victoria Hinson, Fillinger, Chloe Telleen and Ellie Anderson. Demeri Bell, Bailey, Marek and Pacha ran the sprint medley in 2:02.44 to place second. The shuttle hurdle was second in 1:17.94 with Telleen, Olivia Marek, Elyse Hunt and Pacha.

In the small school events, Iowa Mennonite’s Suzanna Yoder was second in the 100 (13.36), 200 (27.64) and won the 400 (1:04.46). Leah Bontrager was second in the 800 in 2:42.47.

WACO’s Grace Conwell won the 400 hurdles in 1:13.82. WACO’s 4x1 of Olivia Leichty, Kaylee Shelman, Laney Graber and Molly McLaughlin took first in 55.25. Leichty, Shelman, Graber and Conwell won the 4x2 in 2:00.15. The shuttle hurdle was first in 1:14.07 with Conwell, Maggie Rinner, Graber and McLaughlin.

Driscoll was a demon for Washington, taking first in the 100 (11.9), 200 (23.75), 400 (52.55) and anchoring the sprint medley (Cade Hennigan, Jacob Miller, Ethan Hunt) to a win in 1:39.58.

“It’s been a long time since I had anybody do that,” WHS coach Steve Roth said. “He was just outstanding, but so was eveybody. The kids stepped up and performed, which says a lot considering the wind and rain.”

Hennigan won the 110 high hurdles in 16.29 and Lincoln Kleese was second in 16.64. Kleese was second in the 100 (12.06). Justin Simmering was second in the 800 (2:09.91). Evan Horak was third in the 3200 (11:10.7).
