The state track and field championships were held at EWU in Cheney last Thursday through Saturday.

Manson took 11 athletes competing in 16 different events.

The first 2 days of competition were mainly preliminary heats and finals being held on Saturday.

There are 16 athletes qualified for each event and the top 8 finishers in prelims will be moving onto the finals.

The Trojans had a roller coaster of results, with some great finishes and some heart breaking ones mixed in as well. The highlights include 4 podium finishes and 2 school records. 

Connor Torgesen placed 4th in the 800m, breaking the school record in the prelims, and then coming back to better that mark in the finals. He also placed 5th in the 400m, narrowly missing the school record in that event as well. 

Jose Pascasio smashed the school record in the javelin by 12 feet to place 4th overall.

Kendall Petre set a new personal best in the 400m to place 8th and earn a medal in that event for the 2nd straight year.

Cole Beazley was the hard luck participant of the meet, as he placed 9th in both the 110m hurdles and 300m hurdles, missing out on a place in the finals by less than .1 of a second in both events.

Another 9th place finisher was Braden Getzin in the triple jump, missing out of a podium finish by a few inches. 

Other results include-
Cara Hutton- 16th in the 1600
Bailey Cameron- 12th in the 1600 and 13th in the 3200
Grant Torgesen- 11th in the 3200
JoJo Morales- 16th in the shot put
Kendall Petre- 10th in the high jump and 16th in the 200m
Boys 4x100 had a bad exchange and were disqualified in their prelim. 
Boys 4x400 narrowly missed the finals by 1.5 seconds and finished 10th

The Manson Trojans traveled to the Tri-Cities this past weekend and performed well in two games at Hanford High School.  The first game on Friday the Trojans defeated the higher seeded Walla Walla Valley Academy 67-61 behind the sharp shooting of senior Avery Thompson who lead the team with 31 points. The following afternoon the Trojans battled league champion Oroville tough before falling 52-43.

This weekend the tournament shifts to the north with the CWB hosting teams from District 5 and 6 in Chelan on Friday and Saturday. Manson kicks the weekend off Friday at 3:30pm where they will face Tri-Cities Prep.   If Manson wins on Friday, they will play the winner of Columbia-Burbank and White Swan on Saturday at 12:15pm.  Manson needs to win both to earn spot in the regional round of the State Tournament.  Best of luck and Go Trojans!

Some very special guests were in attendance at Manson’s home basketball games on Tuesday, January 22nd.

A total of eight Manson Elementary students participated in the first annual Manson Trojan Buddy program.

Assistant Boys Basketball coach, Steve Nygreen, organized the event and gave elementary students the opportunity to pair up with a high school basketball player.

Prior to the game, Trojan Buddies had the opportunity to spend quality time with high school players and form positive relationships.

During the game, Trojan Buddies cheered on the team from behind the bench and enjoyed a post-game visit to the Trojan locker room to celebrate a victory against Liberty Bell.
