SPOKANE VALLEY – Waitsburg senior Emily Adams won all four of her events at the regional track and field championships here last weekend and moves on to the State 1B tournament in Cheney beginning Friday.

Adams out-paced the competition in the 800 meters, with a time of 2:25.97; the 1600 meters, with a personal best time of 5:24.12; the 3200 meters, at 11:55.45; and the triple jump with a leap of 33-03.00.

Landon Callas topped the 300 hurdles with a time of 40.27, and will also be going to state in the 110-meter hurdles and the 100-meter dash, after placing second in each event. Callas put up a new personal record in the 110 hurdles with a time of 15.32.

TJ Morrison was right behind Callas in the 110 hurdles with a third-place finish, coming in at 18.30, another personal best.

The boys 4X400 relay will move on to state after putting up a time of 3:44.58 to take third place. Team members are Andre Potts, TJ Morrison, Joe Leamy and Landon Callas. Cameron Terry will also go as the alternate of the 4X400 relay team. Andre Potts will advance in the triple jump.

For the girls, freshman Kirsten Miller moves on in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 53.01, which put her in fourth place.

The 4X100 relay team also scored a fourth-place finish, as Clarissa Espana, Kenn Gallee, Kailyn Lewis and Miller crossed the line at 56.62 to advance to state. The relay team came into regionals as the sixth-seed team and took nearly two seconds off their best time. Kailyn Lewis will also advance to state in the 100 meter hurdles.

"This meet was very exciting. All of the athletes competed very well. We had a couple athletes that competed, but were not able to advance to state. I was very excited when Emily placed first in all of her competitions. What coach (Dad) wouldn't be?" said Waitsburg Coach Lanny Adams.

"Coaches Ann Adams, Nick Carpenter and I are ready for next week," Lanny Adams added. "We are hoping for some State Championships. Hopefully Landon Callas will successfully defend and repeat his 300 meter hurdle championship. He will be a contender for the 100 dash and 110 hurdles. Watch Emily in all four of her events. We are hoping for her to be in (the) top of all of her events."
