CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, June 4, 2015 SECTION 2 SPORTS ML track continued from page 1 from his Defense Depart- ment duties in Qatar to make it home in time to see his son run and win Saturday's race. "He basically came to watch him run and watch him graduate this weekend," Blankenship said. "That was special for Dom." Blankenship watched in amazement as the com- petition played right into Rehm's race. "I'm going to tell you, I cannot believe the field in the 16 (1,600 meters) and eight (800 meters) let him do what he did," Blankenship said. "They set the race up for him." In other words they chose to race with Rehm throughout, not trying to make him play catch-up, and it rewarded the four- year performer by allow- ing him to sprint away on the last lap and win the 1,600 by in a time of 4 minutes, 22.6 seconds, a 72/100ths of a second margin of victory over Trent Mazelli of Klahow- ya High School who ran 4:23.32 on Friday. Things were much tighter in the 800 on Sat- urday afternoon where Rehm won over King's Andrew Ayers, 1:56.03- 1:56.18, holding off a late charge on the last lap. "He ran the race he wanted to run," Blankenship said. Rehm's 800 time estab- lished a new school re- cord, too. Johnson's Saturday started with a 4/100ths of a second win over Sted- man Knox of Cedar Park Christian, 11.36-11.40 as the two faced a 3.2 mile- per-hour head wind. "It's funny, he (John- son) gets first in the 100 and the kid that gets sec- ond in the 100 and it was just reversed in the 200," Blankenship said. Knox leaned towards the tape at the finish to claim a 22.39-22.45 victory in the 200-meters. The Medical Lake boys had a relative cruise in the 4x100, topping King's by .41 seconds at 43.28- 43.69. Moving to the relay, Blankenship said this was the first time Johnson, the anchor of the foursome, got the baton with his team leading. "Those three other kids, Dawson (Lack), Eli- jah (Farmen) and Jared (Wright) just ran superb with really good hand- offs," Blankenship said as the team set a school- record of 43.18 in the preliminaries and a 42.28 in the finals. Jacob Dingfield, a ju- nior, finished fourth in the 3,200 meters in a time of 10:03.01. Medical Lake had one girl in the field, sopho- more Lexi Rollan who finished fourth in the 100 meters in a time of 13.06. King's was both tal- ented and deep, qualify- ing five more athletes than Medical Lake. Their edge came in the field events, Blankenship said. "We ran better than we expected to, that's all there is to it," Blanken- ship said. "And King's was just too strong for us, they had too many bodies." Medical Lake could have possibly cut a little bit more into the margin King's enjoyed with an- other strong performance from their lone field event entrant, Farmen, who won the District 7 javelin title. He checked in his javelin about an hour before the start of com- petition, but somehow was overlooked. Farmen was scheduled to throw in the second flight and when that was to begin he was told he had not checked in. "You're an hour late for your event," he was told by officials. Blanken- ship interceded and got his athlete back into the competition, but late. Farmen was told he had two practice throws, but they were logged as official. His third throw went outside the sector and resulted in a disquali- fication. "It's a total misunder- standing on a lot of parts," Blankenship said.

All Inland Power needed the Falls' got in the top of the first by using a combination of walks, steals and Nine Mile Falls wild pitches to score four runs. Coach Tia Pieratfs team scored two runs in the second and fourth innings, one run in the third and three more in the fifth for the Inland Power's Grace Remendowski turned in a one-out, unassisted double play to eliminate a Nine Mile Falls threat in the third, catching a pop-up to retire the batter and then tagging first base to record the out of the runner. The win extended Inland Power's winning streak to seven games, giving them a West Rains Majors Softball Division-leading 11-1 record. The West Plains squad was to wrap up its season last Monday, June 1, .by hosting Nine Mile Falls. John McCallum can be reached at jss. com.
