As expected, Jeremiah Nubbe was a champion. And, as a good teammate, he helped his whole squad to the podium with him.
Nubbe won his signature event in record-breaking fashion and helped the Rainier boys to a track championship on Saturday as the 2B state track and field championships wrapped up at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.
Nubbe won the discus with a toss of 203 feet, 7 inches — shattering the 2B meet record by almost 20 feet and breaking the WIAA’s meet record of 195 feet, set in 2016 by Chelan’s Jose Padilla.
Nubbe won Saturday’s event by exactly 50 feet, with Coupeville’s Logan Martin finishing second at 153-7. He also finished second in the javelin at 166-8, behind Kalama’s Max Cox (175-6). Toledo’s Carson Olmstead and Wyatt Nef were third and fourth, respectively. Olmstead added a seventh-place finish in the 300 meter hurdles and ran a leg on the state-title winning 4x400 relay team with his brother Conner, Nef, and Jordan Mckenzie.
Rainier’s Ryan Doidge won the pole vault at an even 14 feet, with teammate Dylan Davis finishing second at 12-6.
Chase MacFarland won the triple jump for the Mountaineers at 43-2.5, with teammate Thomas Ronne in fourth (40-7.5). Napavine’s Peyton League was seventh (38-7.5).
Napavine’s Lucas Dahl, fresh off a state title in the long jump on Friday, added to his collection with a win in the 200 meters. Dahl, a senior, finished in 22.29 seconds to edge out Ocosta’s William Idso (23.02).
Onalaska’s Kole Taylor was second in the 100 meters at 11.65, with Rainier’s Harbor Lees taking fourth.
MWP’s Matt Cooper was sixth in the 800 (2:05) and ran a leg on the Timberwolves’ fourth-place 4x400 relay team with Kysen Collette, Garret Clevenger and David Martinez. MWP’s 4x100 relay team finished fifth.
Adna’s Tristan Ridley was sixth in the 400 (52.62) and fifth in the 200 (23.84).
Toledo’s Treyton Marty finished eighth in the 3200 (10:44), with Northwest Christian (Lacey) runner Asher Ingram winning the event in 9:50.
The Mountaineers scored 67 points to finish first on the team standings board, with Davenport (55) in second and Chewelah (46) in third. Toledo finished sixth and Napavine was 10th.
