TACOMA — Murray Bingham of Sequim is the state champion of the 800-meter run while Port Angeles’ Millie Long joined her sister as a state champion by winning the 300-meter hurdles.
Both the Sequim boys and the Port Angeles girls are both in the running for state 2A team championships with the 4×400 relay races to be held after press deadline.
Bingham won his race with a time of 1 minutes, 55.937 seconds. His teammate Alec Shingleton came in fifth with a time of 1:59.208.
Shingleton picked up some big points for Sequim late Saturday afternoon by finishing second in the 400-meter dash with a time of 50.01, finishing out of first place by 0.12 of a second.
Long, who came in seventh in the 100-meter hurdles (15.61 seconds) Thursday and 10th in the long jump, won the 300-meter hurdles on Saturday with a time of 44.65 seconds. She came in to that event with the No. 1 2A girls’ time in the state and joins her sister Gracie Long, who was the 1,600-meter state champion last year for Port Angeles.
Sequim’s Riley Martin came within 0.001 of a second of winning the state championship Friday in the 110-meter hurdles in perhaps the closest finish possible.
Martin came in second place in the 110 hurdles finals with a time of 14.910 seconds. The winner was Tyrus Thomas of Pullman, who was clocked with a time of 14.909.
Martin’s amazing result is just part of a successful meet so far for Sequim and Port Angeles athletes.
Bingham also finished third in the 1,600 meters Thursday with a time of 4:21.73. Bingham ran in the 4×400 relay late Saturday after press deadline in an event the Wolves were expected to place in.
Sequim’s Fischer Jensen finished eighth in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 41.801. Sequim’s Riley Pyeatt finished fifth in the girls 400-meter dash with a time of 58.88.
Port Angeles’ Lauren Larson had a busy state meet, placing in three distance events. She finished second in the 800 with a time of 2:14.47, less than one-half of a second out of first place. She also finished second in the 3,200 meters with a time of 10:54.11, just 7 seconds out of first. She finished third in the 1,600 with a time of 5:03.04. Larson single-handedly collected 22 points for the Port Angeles girls.
Port Angeles’ Myra Walker picked up a fourth-place finish in the shot put with a distance of 36-6¾.
