Forks at Spudder Classic

RIDGEFIELD — Going up against competitors from 27 other schools, including eight 2A schools, at the Spudder Classic in Ridgefield, Forks’ Luke Dahlgren set a new school record in the discus with a with a throw of 156 feet, 8 inches.

Dahlgren’s throw broke a 23-year old school record of 156 feet previously held by Tryllane Poole.

Poole was coached at that time by his father Robin Poole, who has worked with Dahlgren and the Forks throwers for the past few seasons.

“I dragged him out of retirement and he coaches the kid who beat his kid’s record,” Spartans coach Pam Gale said. “He definitely gets part of the credit for that.”

Dahlgren finished third overall in the discus at the large, mixed classification meet. His throw at Friday’s meet is the third best so far this season among 1A boys in the entire state.

Dahlgren’s teammate Skyler Steffen also finished sixth in the discus with a throw of 141-5, also a personal best.

Forks next competes at the Evergreen 1A League meet in Montesano on Friday.
