Brooks PR - June 12, 2024

Renton Memorial Stadium - Renton, WA



Brooks PR is set to go at Renton Memorial Stadium Wednesday afternoon and here are the west coast distance athletes to watch.


One Mile Seattle


Eliza White of Curtis

Brooks PR starts with local athletes racing the mile. The top local runners include Eliza White of Curtis and Latham West of Bonney Lake have both run 4:53 in the 1600 meters this season. Sally Roos of Eastlake won Sunday’s elite high school 1500-meter race at Portland Track Festival in 4:32.42. Cassidy Armstrong of Ballard has 4:54 personal best in the 1600.


Caleb Wilcox of Steilacoom

Caleb Wilcox of Steilacoom has the top time in the 1600 with a 4:12 time. Connor Hom of Eastlake has run 4:14 in the 1600 and Jack Huarte of Eastside Catholic has a 4:16 time in the 1600. 


2-Mile


Jaelyn Williams of Eastlake

Two years ago, Dalia Frias of Mira Costa raced Irene Riggs of Morgantown to the finish and Frias set the meet record of 9:50.70. That record is in jeopardy as six girls entered in Wednesday’s two-mile have broken ten minutes in this season. West coast athletes racing in the two-mile include Jaelyn Williams of Eastlake who won the California State Meet 3200-meters in a time of 9:57.11. Sophia Rodriquez of Mercer Island is the 3A  Washington 3200-meter champion and races Wednesday in the 2-mile. Chloe Huyler of Lakeridge, who also runs the 2-mile on Wednesday, won the 6A Oregon State Meet 3000-meter race. 


Josiah Tostenson of Crater

The boy’s two-mile will have many of the same athletes in the epic Arcadia 3200-meter race back in April. Josiah Tostenson of Crater was one of those athletes who broke 8:40 at Arcadia and he is entered in the two-mile. Tostenson also won the 5A Oregon State Meet 3000-meters. Grant Morgenfeld of Palo Alto is the other west coast athlete in the race and finished second in the 3200 at the recent California State meet with a time of 8:44.40.


800 Meters


Sadie Engelhardt of Ventura

Ali Ince of Normal Community has won the Brooks PR 800 three years in a row and to sweep the Brooks PR 800, she will have to beat Sadie Engelhardt of Ventura who has the fastest high school 800 this year with a mark of 2:03.48. L’Mio Edwards of Claremont and Georgia Jeanneret of JSerra of CIF Southern Section have experience racing Engelhardt and will race the 800 on Wednesday.


Alden Morales of JSerra

The lone west coast boy runner in the 800 is sophomore Alden Morales of JSerra. Injury prevented Morales to run the California post season. He gets a chance to race freshman phenom Cooper Lutkenhaus of Texas.


Mile


Ellery Lincoln of Lincoln

The girl’s mile is loaded with athletes who can run in the mid 4:30’s and it is possible west coast athletes can be in the mix. Washington 4A state 1600-meter champion Rebecca O’Keefe of Skyline is entered in the race. Ellery Lincoln of Lincoln High School, won the 6A Oregon state 1500-meter title, races in Renton on Wednesday. Chiara Dailey of La Jolla enters the meet with a 4:44.47 personal best in the 1600.


Owen Powell of Mercer Island

Can the boys break four minutes in the mile on Wednesday? JoJo Jourdon of Olympia of Utah is in the race and has already accomplished it this season. West coast athletes Owen Powell of Mercer Island, Evan Noonan of Dana Hills and Jack Henzke of Seattle Prep will be racing to break the famous barrier.
