Everyone performed well in some serious hard competition, we  came home with five medals. They medaled top 9.

Peyton Davis earned two medals; a seventh place medal in the high jump with a Jump of 6’4″ and he won ninth place medal in javelin with a throw of 168′ 01″.

Jake Freidel won eighth in the pole vault by clearing of 13′ 8″.

Both Lady Panther vaulters, Lynsie Curtis and Carter Hawkins medaled. Curtis took fifth place with a vault of 12′ 0′ and Hawkins got personal record with a vault of 11′ 0″ and earned an eighth-place medal.

Lacey Pavlak threw well in shot and discus but did not medal.

Curtis and Davis both ran season bests in the 100 m dash and the 300 Hurdles but with competitors from six different states they fell short of medaling.

The boys 4 x 100 ran well in a field of 66 teams and finished 47th.

Central coaches walked away with a confidence that Centralia competed with the best in many surrounding states and held their own with a lot of bigger schools in these states. The experience on the big stage was definitely worth the visit.
