Bonney Lake had a dominating meet with place scoring in 17 of the 18 events missing only the Triple Jump in which they did not have a competitor. The Panthers won 7 events led by Zoey Diviny’s triple win in the distance races beginning with the 800 then the 1600 and the 3200. She won the 800 by 2-10ths of a second, the 1600 by less than a second and the 3200 by 5 seconds turning back favored Kivi Johnson of Lakes with a powerful stretch run. She also ran the 400 and finished 4th but her team mate Ashley Hollenbeck would carry the torch with an impressive run. Hollenbeck also finished 2nd in the 100 and 200 and took 3rd in the long jump joining Diviny in scoring in all 4 of her events.
Brooke Mansfield dominated the hurdles winning both events, taking the 100 in a PR time of 17.36 winning by nearly a half second. She held off a determined Chonte’ Power from Lincoln in the 300 winning by 2/10ths of second.

She won the 100 in a PR time of 12.18, 3/10ths of a second in front and stopped the watch in the 200 at 26.03, 4/10ths the best. Little was nearly a triple winner finishing 2nd in the long jump just 1.25 inches short of the win and part of the 4×100 relay that was also 2nd. Little scored 26 of the teams 88 total points. Jessalyn Robles placed in the 200, 400, 800 and 1600 with her best finish 3rd in the 800.

Samayia White placed twice in the field events with a 3rd in the shot put and tied with Perrine in the high jump.
Eli’s Meet Awards
High Point Winner: Zoey Diviny Bonney Lake (35 points) Wins in the 800, 1600 and 3200 and 4th in 400
Top Running Event Performance: Mount Tahoma’s Morgan Little’s blazing run in the 100 meters.
Most Exciting Race: Bonney Lake’s Brooke Mansfield winning the 300 hurdles holding off a fast closing Chonte’ Power.
Best Redemption Race: Bonney Lake’s Ashley Hollenbeck was 2nd to Morgan Little in the 100 and 200 but then came back to win the 400.
Top Throwing Performance: Stadium’s Makenzie Dilworth 122-07 throw in the javelin winning by 22 feet.
Top Jumping or Vaulting Performance: Spanaway Lake’s Hailey Perrine edging out Morgan Little by an inch in the long jump.
Top Relay Performance: Wilson’s 4×200 Relay with Ty’Zeonna Callender, Noele Eschenfelder, Railee Hutton & Samarika Williams blitzed the competition by 2 seconds.
MVP: Zoey Diviny of Bonney Lake. Yes she scored the most points but how she scored the running a grueling schedule of the 400, 800, 1600 and 3200. Not being favored in all the events and turning away her top opponent Lakes’ Kivi Johnson in the 3200 to find another gear and pull away to win it in the final 200 meters.
Most Inspirational: Tie, Stadium team mates Charlotte Southworth and Lillie Steele. They both competed in the 3200 and finished 14th and 15th at the back end of the pack. They were both 4+ minutes behind the winner. But they never gave up and in fact pushed themselves and finished strong digging down to find that extra effort and both set personal best times by about 30-seconds. The effort simply inspirational.
Below is each event’s point scorers and video clip of the running races, sorry no video clips of the field events. The Team Standings are our own calculation, there were no final Team results posted on Athletic.net there also seemed to be 2 scoring options on Wednesday they score the top 10 placers and on Friday the top 8. We recalculated both the girls and boys meets with the 8 placer model or 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 point scale.
