Baylee Mires (winning state 800 metes as a sophomore), who could finish high school with more gold medals from the state track meet than any athlete in Greater Spokane League history, will run for Washington next season. Read on.
 
The Mead senior chose the Huskies over California after considering all the Pac-10 schools and other track powers across the country.
 
"I loved the team," she said. "It's going to be different. They're so good in cross country I'm going to walk in and have them take care of me."
 
Though Mires has twice placed fifth in the State 4A cross country meet her passion is on the track. She won the 800- and 1,600-meters at the State 4A meet the past two seasons as well as anchoring the Panthers' two-time 1,600-meter relay team. Last spring Mead won the team champion, to go with the boys title won by the Panthers, who are coached by her father John.
 
"The coach wants me more for track," she said. "He knows I'm a harsh competitor on the track."
