The invitational track season comes to full flower this weekend.
Most bigger schools compete in Ferris’s Big Red Invitational this morning while Valley Christian School hosts its annual smaller school Icebreaker Invitational at Central Valley High School.
Twenty-five schools will be represented, said Panther coach Linda Lanker, including her school and Freeman.
Greater Spokane League track began Thursday in typical frigid fashion and both CV and University boys and girls teams won easily.
Among the best efforts was turned in by University sophomore Anthony Buchanan, whose 10.6 victory in the 100 was nearly a second faster than second place. He won the 200 by more than a second in 22.5.
Jake Roberts ran 15.3 in the high hurdles.
Julie Schroeder won three events for U-Hi, the 200, triple jump and long jump in 16-7-1/2. Casey Lektorich won the javelin as expected and debuted with a victory in the 300 hurdles.
CV’s field events people dominated as expected in the boys meet and the girls won every event except the final relay race which they didn’t enter.
Heather Harding won both shot put and discus, the former in a day’s best 35-2.
