CK’s Moskowitz roars in Pasco

Central Kitsap junior Shane Moskowitz swept the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races at the Pasco Invitational, the state’s largest regular-season meet, Saturday.

Moskowitz, who established himself as one of the state’s premier distance runners with a second-place individual finish at the 2008 Class 4A state cross-country championships, won the 1,600 in 4 minutes, 16.60 seconds and the 3,200 in 9:13.05, the state’s fastest time up to this point in the season. His sister, Shannon, took second in the 800 (2:19.89).

The Cougars took fourth in the boys team standings with 32 points, finishing behind winner Kentwood (62), second-place Mead (57.5) and third-place North Central (44). The girls finished sixth overall with 22 points, with Jesuit of Oregon (54) taking the crown.

South Kitsap Invite

In Olympic League action, Klahowya sophomore Rebecca Lindgren took first in the girls 100-meter dash at Saturday’s South Kitsap Invitational at South Kitsap High School with a time of 12.87 seconds. She also took third in the 200 (26.59) and second in the 400 (1:00.56).

The Lady Eagles tied Foss for 12th in the girls team standings with 25 points, finishing well behind winner SK (94). Federal Way won the boys team title with 136 points.

The Olympic track and field team also competed at the South Kitsap Invitational, with the boys earning fourth place and the girls 16th.

Kyle King took third in the 100 in 11.36 and Darrious Walker took second in the 200 in 23.11, and the duo joined Larry Dixon and James Galam to capture the 4X100 relay in 44.42.

Dixon also placed fourth in the shot put with a 48-foot-1-inch throw in the finals.

Olympic hosted Kingston and Port Angeles yesterday, but results from that meet were unavailable at press time.
