Cougars ready for state

-A A +A

Evergreen’s boys and girls track teams each took home third place finishes at last weekend’s Class 4A, Region 6 meet at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood.

The girls’ 4x800-meter relay team of Danielle Randolph, Kyla Berendzen, Bryn Haebe and Tayler Warren took first place with a time of 10 minutes, 13.56 seconds.

Coach Rob Wright is confident the quartet can break the school record at the 4A state meet, which takes place May 16-17 at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood.

Berendzen had a exceptionally strong regional meet, taking home the 1,600 (5:25.19) and 3,200 (12:11.48) titles in addition to her relay title.

Freshman Bryn Haebe continued to amaze, qualifying for state in four events. She placed behind Berendzen in both distance races, and will also run in the 4x800 and 4x400 relay events.

Bryn’s older brother, Ryan, also had a strong regional meet. Ryan qualified in three events. He placed third in the 1,600 (4:43.03) and second in the 3,200 (10:07.21).

Warren took first in the 800 (2:27.20) and was also a member of the 4x400 relay team. She runs the anchor leg on the 4x800 team.

Anna Campbell had the dubious task of running alongside defending 100- and 200-meter state champion, Emily Blok of Conifer. Campbell, though, held her own, placing second in the 100 (12.97) and 200 (26.64).

Drake Brown took home the boys’ 400 title, finishing in a time of 52.08 seconds. Patrick Llull finished third in the 800 (2:05.64) and fourth in the 1,600.
