BURLINGTON — Track meets can't get any closer than the one Thursday pitting the Burlington-Edison High School boys' team against Sedro-Woolley.

Sedro-Woolley came away with a razor-thin win 71-70, while the Burlington-Edison girls won 82-64.

"I felt we picked up some points in the jumps and certain field events that allowed us to compensate for a rough day in the sprints on the track," Sedro-Woolley coach Johnny Lee said.

"Our distance crew did a nice job in their events to help give us the edge in the overall team score."

Sedro-Woolley's Seth Sternhill-Tift placed first in the 110 hurdles (17.21 seconds), the 300 hurdles (43.62) and the pole vault (13 feet, 6 inches).

Jadyn Lee won both the long jump (18-4) and the triple jump (38-7 1/2) for the Cubs.

Sedro-Woolley's Kalin Adkerson won the 1,600 (4 minutes, 52.64 seconds), Gunnar Hoskinson the shot put (40-9), Jacob Acton the discus (100 feet) and Baylor Virata the javelin (122-10 1/2).

Bode Brewer won a pair of event for the Tigers, crossing the finish line first in the 100 (11.41) as well as the 400 (55.77). He also ran legs on both of Burlington-Edison's winning relay teams, the 400 (44.20) and 1,600 (3:43.53). Both relay teams also had Calvin Absten, Dane Hansen and Zachary Watson.

In the 200, Absten was the winner (23.15) while Bryce Robinson finished first in the 800 (2:12.07) and Yahir Marban won the 3,200 (12:13.33).

Hansen won the high jump (5-8) and teammate Raven Storie won the 200 (28.73).

In the girls' meet, Burlington-Edison's Sydney Reisner won the 400 (1:06.67), Sage Mailhiot the 1,600 (5:52.25), Katelyn Van Zanten the 3,200 (13:36.99), Hannah Sayer the 300 hurdles (54.26), Sophia Mackenzie the discus (92-7), Gabriella MacKenzie the javelin (87-8) and Megan Gustafson the pole vault (7-0).

Burlington-Edison's 800 relay team of Emma Smith, Sayer, Sydney Reisner and Vivien Verrue won (1:51.48) as did its 1,600 team of Amey Rainaud-Hinds, Smith, Mila Hoagland and Reisner (4:24.03).

Sedro-Woolley's Heather Vanderbeek had herself a day, winning the 100 hurdles (17.16), shot put (31-6 1/2), high jump (5-0) and triple jump (33-11).

Teammate Savannah Halverson crossed the finish line first in the 100 (14.10) while Lauren Benham finished first in the 800 (2:24.58) and Madesyn Skinner the long jump (15-2).

The Cubs' 400 relay team of Lotus Blue, Tasia Pinney, Storie and Savannah Halverson won in 53.24.

"Burlington-Edison is a tough matchup for us," Lee said. "They are so deep with talent and their staff does a good job spreading that talent around."
