In their only home meet of the season, the Sunnyside High School boys and girls varsity track teams each earned a split yesterday.
The SHS boys squad edged the Kennewick Lions by a 73-71 score. The Davis Pirates boys team prevailed over Sunnyside, however, by a 99-45 count.
In girls team scoring, the Lady Grizzlies came out on top by an 80-66 score against Davis. Kennewick's girls claimed an 83-59 victory against Sunnyside.
Four of Sunnyside's athletes walked away from Thursday's double-dual meet with two victories apiece. The two-time winners included Ayla Schmick, Jocelyn Yanez, Katie Herndon and Kennedy Sarmiento.
Schmick and Yanez, both sophomores, were members of the winning 4x100 and 4x400 relay squads.
In the girls 4x100 relay competition, Schmick and Yanez teamed with sophomore Samantha Reyes and junior Tanya Lugo to post a winning time of 55.45 seconds. A Kennewick foursome crossed the finish line 1.06 seconds behind the Lady Grizzlies for runner-up honors.
Schmick and Yanez took on new partners in the girls 4x400 relay...senior Teresa Ramos and freshman Marisa Broersma. The four girls sped to a winning time of 4:40.69. A foursome from Kennewick was a distant second with a clocking of 5:23.24.
Herndon's two wins for the Lady Grizzlies came in the girls pole vault and triple jump. A junior, she turned in a first place pole vault leap of 8-6, a full foot higher than the runner-up effort of Edith Martinez of Davis. Herndon won the triple jump with a performance of 30 feet, 3 inches. Davis's Daria Winckler, the second place finisher in the eight-girl field, had an effort of 29-2.
Sarmiento continued his winning ways for Sunnyside in the two boys hurdles events. A junior, he blew away the competition in the shorter 110-meter high hurdles race, clocking in at 15.86 seconds. The closest runner to him was Ernesto Gonzalez of Davis, who finished in 17.25 seconds. In the 300-meter hurdles, Sarmiento again was the clear winner, covering the distance in 42.44 seconds. The Pirates' Gonzalez again earned runner-up honors, recording a time of 44.18 seconds.
