The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears and Thunder Mountain Falcons put in a strong weekend of track and field events at Kodiak’s Emerald Island Invitational last weekend. Due to a conflict with the Southeast Music Festival, both JDHS and Thunder Mountain were missing key members of their squads.

According to TMHS coach Scott May and JDHS coach Janette Gagnon two separate meets were held.

Friday was a combined Co-Ed Meet, in which co-ed teams from Kodiak and Port Lions joined up to race against Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain, representing Southeast, and former State Champions Wasilla represented the Mat-Su Valley.

In the field events, the top four distances (two boys and two girls) were added together to declare winners. Southeast won the Triple Jump with Alex Tracy, Zach Sherman, Jean Cumlat and Shayla Reeves combining for the farthest distance.

In the running events Friday, the combined JDHS/TMHS team won the 3200, with Maddie Hall, Estie Dawson, Shadd Rudick and Johny Elliott clocking the fastest overall times when added together. There were two relays, a first of it’s kind Co-Ed Sprint Medley Relay usually only run in Europe, where a girl ran for 100 meters handed a baton off to a boy, who ran 200 meters, then a girl for 300 and a boy for 400 meters. The Southeast team consisting of Sammy Haight, Joe Ia, Karissa Jackson and Joel Perry beat the Kodiak and Matsu Teams in a close race.

The other winning SE relay consisted of athletes who were entered into throwing events only. Each of four athletes ran 100 meters with Shale Kibby (TMHS), Joe Ia (TMHS), Rolanda Scaife (JDHS) and Warren Eckland (JDHS) winning.

The combined JDHS/TMHS Southeast team won the Meet Friday with a total of 62 points, to Kodiak Island’s combined team score of 56 points, to Wasilla’s 36.

“The kids had a great time with this and showed a lot of support for each other,” Gagnon said via email. “They had a true showing of good sportsmanship. “

On Saturday a traditional meet saw the Kodiak boys take first with 138 points with TMHS second with 46, Wasilla third at 31 and JDHS fourth with 14. The Wasilla girls won with 113 points, followed by Kodiak’s 83, TMHS with 51, JDHS 42 and Port Lions 32.

The JDHS coaches selected Sarah McDermott and Neal Chapman as Athletes Of The Meet.

“Based on the positive attitudes, willingness to compete in whatever events we needed them in (even asking to be in more events) and overall helpfulness to their fellow teammate,” Gagnon said. “Both performed very well in their individual events and volunteered to try new events for the team. On an off the track Neal and Sarah are always putting the team’s needs in front of their own.”

JDHS’ Jean Cumlat continues to perform well in the jumps, hitting a 29-foot two-inch attempt for second place in the triple; Cumlat also finished second in the long jump with a 13-foot-6 effort in between the Falcons strong jumping duo of Shayla Reeves (14-foot-11) and Shale Kibby (12-foot-9.5). Jade Pilcher led the southeast throwers with a third place throw in the discus (69-foot-5) and TM’s Kibby and Pearson threw well in the shot (25-foot-8 and 25-foot-4 respectively) for fifth and sixth.

TMHS coach May was impressed with his Falcons.

“I knew we were strong,” May said. “But with only 10 boys and 8 girls, I didn’t expect to finish second and third overall. I was very proud of how we did on both days. It was good fun to team up with JDHS on Friday, with the resulting win. That was really unexpected, as both Wasilla and Kodiak have very competitive programs. It was fun to put together the combined teams, and the kids had a blast.”

Ten boys traveled for TMHS and nine scored points, helping take a second place finish while establishing seven personal records.

Selected “Athlete of The Meet” Alex Tracy won three of the four events he entered (Triple and Long Jump, 100 meter dash) and scored 18.5 points for the team.

Freshman Landon Johnson totaled the second highest points for the team, placing well in the Triple jump, 100 and 200 meters. James Steeves broke the five-minute barrier in the 1600 with a 4:59.49 PR on Saturday.

Eight Falcons’ girls traveled and seven scored team points in their third place standing. Six girls school records were set, nine personal records set and four new PR’s.

Falcons’ coaches selected Sammy Haight “Athlete of the Meet.” The freshman sprinter had the team’s highest point total with 13.5 points, won the 100 meters and placed third in the 200. Haight established a new school record in the 200, with her time of 28.60 set by senior Sydney Thorn last year.

Freshmen Maddie Hall continued to impress her coaches by extending her 3200-meter undefeated winning streak and clocking a new school record of 12:22.40, making her the fourth fastest freshmen in the State. Shayla Reeves’ Long Jump of 14’ 11” ranks her 5th in the state.

This week the Capital Invitational Track & Field Meet will be held at TMHS. Over 200 athletes will be competing and over nine teams attending including Angoon, Gustavus, Haines, JDHS, Ketchikan, Sitka, TMHS and Yakutat. Events run Friday from 12:30-8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
