CHENEY — It’s finally Sally Larson’s year.
After running in the shadow of Maddie Meyers throughout her high-school career, the senior from Cedar Park Christian of Bothell won a Class 1A girls state title Friday in the 3,200 meters.
The victory at the 1A/2B/1B state track and field championships at Eastern Washington University was a breakthrough for Larson, who was runner-up to Meyers the past two years in both the 1,600 and 3,200.
Meyers is now a freshman at the University of Washington.
