Onalaska’s Brooklyn Sandridge showcased her versatile prowess Friday and Saturday at Lake Stevens for the Washington State Combined Events Championship, finishing eighth among a field featuring athletes from every classification.
Sandridge finished with a heptathlon score of 3,358, breaking the Ony school record by over 1,000 points.
The senior Logger’s score should come as no surprise, as Sandridge tried just about every event throughout the spring track and field season, and ranks in the top-10 in school history in 11 events, per athletic.net.
Starting off a bit rocky with a 21st-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles in 19.45, Sandridge came back to finish eighth in the second event, the shot put, with a 8.06 meter toss.
In the next event, the high jump, Sandridge took 11th, clearing the 1.42-meter bar. Then the senior recorded a personal-best in the 200-meter dash, finishing 11th in 28.69. In the long jump, one of her better events during the high school spring season, Sandridge finished 10th with a 4.57-meter leap.
In the javelin, Sandridge tossed the stick 25.38 meters to finish seventh, and finished fourth in the last event, the 800-meter run, in 2:32.69 to finish eighth overall at the heptathlon.
Her teammate, Kelsi Haas, also participated in the meet and scored 2,369 points, good for second all-time in Ony history for a heptathlon.
Liberty of Issaquah’s Paige Bajsarowicz won the event with 4,029 total points.
