Rain turned to sun and Lopez athletes responded at a home meet April 18 versus Lummi, Friday Harbor, St. Paul’s Academy, Cedar Park Christian, and Concrete high schools.

Several Lobos turned in outstanding performances.

Brianne Swanson entered the 100 meter and 200 meter dashes, 300 meter hurdles, and high jump and won all four. Solomon Bill won both the 1,600 meter and 3,200 meter runs, turning in excellent mid-season times of 4:55.7 and 10:43, respectively.

Many other Lobos posted personal records as they prepared for the upcoming League meet on May 2 at Mt. Vernon, the District meet on May 11 at Stanwood, and the Tri-district meet at Kings High in Shoreline on May 19.
