KENNEWICK — Despite getting beaten by a strong Southridge squad, Eastmont track coach Gary Millard came away from Thursday’s meet pleased with the performances of a number of athletes.
“All in all it was a good meet,” he said. “We had some illnesses going around and we’re still working out some of the early season (kinks), but it was a good meet.”
The boys and girls each split on the day, beating Kennewick but losing to Southridge.
For the girls, Taylor Reynolds took another step forward in her return from November foot surgery, improving her distance in the triple jump by more than a foot over her showing in the team’s meet last Thursday.
Casey King added eight feet to her discus mark from last time out, and Kendra Scott won the 100 and was part of Eastmont’s first-place 4x100 relay.
For the boys, Berlie Walker cleared 13 feet in the pole vault, equaling his height from the end of last season, and Jordan Frazier had personal bests in the shot put and discus on the way to wins in those events.

Carlos Sanchez struck eight minutes in for Wenatchee, and Ozzy Mejia added a goal in the 48th minute. Eddy Delgado, a JV player coming off a hat trick, scored Wenatchee’s final goal in the 73rd minute.
