PASCO - Wa-Hi's boys won the District 5/6 Championship Friday and more than 30 of the 72 Wa-Hi tracksters who competed qualified to advance to the regional meet next week.

"It was a really special win for the boys," Wa-Hi coach Eric Hisaw said, "because you never really try to win the districts as a team. You try to focus on each kids' best events to get them to try to qualify for regionals. Still, we managed to get the boys title along the way."

The girls team finished fifth, but was just 7.5 points out of third place. The boys took the title by two points.

"We really had too many personal records (PRs) to mention," Hisaw said. "It was all about kids qualifying for the next week and some excelled even further to win their events."

Blake Gerling won the 110- and 300-meter hurdles. Kyle Jameson got second in both hurdling events for Wa-Hi.

Madeline Jacobson set a PR en route to winning the javelin toss with a throw of 131 feet, 5 inches.

Ashley Cornia, Dominique Cox, Rachel Nelson and Maggie Callan took home a district title in the 4x400 relay with a 4:05.73.

"The girls 4x400 was really an exciting and dramatic race that was close to the finish," Hisaw said.

The boys 4x100 team claimed a fourth place finish. It was comprised of Nathaniel Lynn, Stuart Gillin, Robert Miller and Darnell Handcox.

"Those guys in the 4x100 really competed well and ran their hearts out. They were focused and ran their best time of the year," Hisaw said.

The boys 4x400 team claimed second with Gerling, Jonah Hoe, Ben Wolpert, and Kyle Jameson.

"The boys district championship was all about everyone contributing and all the guys fighting for a spot in regionals," Hisaw said. "The girls did really well and we were happy with their finish. They finished not too far out of second place."

The top eight district finalists advance to the regionals Friday and Saturday in Richland.
