Months of training led Quincy track-and-field athletes to the Caribou Trail League Championship Meet on May 10, and several Jackrabbits won their events, while both the boys and girls teams won second place in team scores.

The solid team performances pleased Andrew Schmidt, head coach of the Quincy boys team.

“Team scoring highlights not just the top athletes, but the depth of the team as a whole. So, we are excited that all of our athletes are seeing the payoff of the hard work they have been putting in all year,” Schmidt wrote in an email. “While not everyone earned an individual ribbon, they all get to celebrate the contributions they made to the team earning second place.”

The Cashmere boys and girls teams took first place at the championship meet, held at Quincy High School, with the Cashmere girls earning 210 points and the Cashmere boys accumulating 286 points.

Quincy girls totaled 103 points. Omak girls were third, with 95 points. Cascade girls placed fourth, with 78 points. And, Chelan girls placed fifth with 52.

The Quincy boys earned 72 points. Cascade boys totaled 62, good for third place. In fourth place, Omak boys collected 48 points, edging out Chelan in fifth with 45 points.

Schmidt also pointed to individual efforts of Jackrabbits who have been contending for top finishes all season.

“Jayden Richards has been battling all season for the top spot in the CTL for the sprinting events and we were really excited to see him reclaim first place in both the 100 and the 200,” Schmidt wrote. “Likewise, Jasmine Vasquez reclaimed the top spot in league for the 100-meter dash on the women's side. She also successfully defended her top spot in the high jump. Joceline Schaapman continued her dominance by taking the gold medal in both the long jump and 300 hurdles.”

Several other Jackrabbits and relay teams took second or third in their events.

“The CTL Championship was our chance to shine a spotlight on the hard work the entire team has been putting in throughout the season, we now turn our attention to District 6 - 1A Championships where individual athletes will have a chance to qualify for the 1A State Meet,” Schmidt wrote.

The District 6 1A meet will be Thursday, May 18, at Cashmere, starting at 4 p.m.

“We talk to our athletes about peaking at the proper time and the district meet is that time. Only the top finisher earns an automatic berth to state, so we will be taking this week to put the finishing touches on a season full of hard work,” Schmidt wrote.
