Sandite of the Week: Colton Washington takes gold at Stillwater track meet

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

Charles Page High School Long Jumper Colton Washington was selected as Sandite of the Week for his outstanding performance at the Stillwater Pioneer Relays this past week.

Washington set a personal-best at 21'07.50", beating the runner-up by 1'00.75". His previous best was 20'07.00 at last year's Frontier Valley Conference meet.

Breaking the 20' mark at all is impressive. Last year he placed tenth in Regionals with a distance of 19'09.50. His Stillwater performance would have placed him second in last year's Regionals or eighth in the State Championship.
