Paced by freshman Elizabeth Donnelly’s and junior Tanner Lobdell’s second-place finishes, South Whidbey was well represented at the state 1A meet in Cheney on May 29.

Donnelly set her personal record at 2:17.34 in the 800-meter race. She bested her previous fast mark that day by nearly six seconds.

Lobdell ran the fastest 400-meter race of his career in 50.35 seconds.

Allie Vanbenschoten, a junior, finished in fourth place in the 300-meter hurdles. Her time of 47.03 seconds was just shy of her personal-best set at the bi-district meet May 23.

The Falcon boys 1,600-meter relay team placed eighth. Cameron Lobdell, Evan Mellish, Cole Zink, and Tanner Lobdell combined for a time of 3:35.64, one of the group’s faster times of the season.

Kristen Schuster, a senior, finished in 10th place in the girls discus. Her best throw of 106 feet, 2 inches represented her third-farthest distance this season.

Bailey Forsyth, a sophomore, missed out on the 100-meter finals after placing 10th in the preliminary heats, just shy of a finals-qualifying mark. Her time of 13.08 seconds was her third-best time of the season.
