CHENEY — Maddie Meyers of Seattle’s Northwest School made it a career sweep of state championships in the girls 3,200 meters, taking her fourth Class 1A title in the event on Friday at Eastern Washington University.
Meyers, a senior who will run for the University of Washington next school year, won in 11 minutes, 5.24 seconds. She edged junior Sally Larson of Cedar Park Christian (Bothell) in a repeat of last year’s finish. Larson was just behind in 11:07.44.
Last year, Meyers beat Larson by almost 10 seconds.
It was the ninth career state title in track and field for Meyers — four in the 3,200, three in the 1,600 and two in the 800. She can add more championships on Saturday in the finals of the 1,600 and 800.
