Two medals in hand, and a third one on order.

Day #1 of the three-day 2B state track and field championships went to plan for Coupeville High School, with all three athletes in competition doing well.

Wolf senior Carolyn Lhamon led the way in Yakima, shattering her PR in the shot put by more than a foot as she claimed 4th place in a field of 16 girls.

Her throw of 36 feet, two inches tops her previous best mark of 35-00, set at the district meet.

It also left Lhamon just seven inches shy of the CHS girls record of 36-09, set way back in 1990 by Jennie Cross.

Lhamon, who finished 16th at state as a junior, becomes the 78th Wolf to bring home a state meet medal, and the 32nd girl.

Joining her in claiming hardware Thursday was fellow senior Aidan Wilson, who claimed 5th in the triple jump, narrowly missing a PR with a mark of 41-06.75.

It’s the third state meet medal for him, after he brought home a 2nd (4 x 100) and 3rd (800) last season.

Wilson is the 27th Wolf to hit the trifecta, and, with two events still left to compete in this time around, he has a chance to join an even-more exclusive club.

There are 11 CHS athletes currently in the five-medal fraternity.

While Coupeville brought 22 athletes to Yakima, Thursday’s schedule was relatively light, with Monroe Myles running in the 100-meter prelims.

The speedy sophomore, making her first appearance at the state meet for the Wolves, finished 5th out of 16 runners, hitting the line with a PR of 13.13 seconds.

That sends Myles into Saturday’s eight-woman final and guarantees her a medal.

With Lhamon and Wilson scoring Thursday, Coupeville is in the mix in the team scoring race as well.

The CHS girls, with five points, are tied with Brewster for 4th place.

With two of 18 events scored, St. George’s (28), Asotin (16), and White Swan (8) currently hold down the top three slots.

On the boys side, they’ve wrapped three of 17 events, with St. George’s (16), Chewelah (12), and Goldendale (12) in the early lead.

Coupeville, with Wilson’s four points, is 14th heading into Friday.

“They did amazing!!!,” said Coupeville girls’ coach Elizabeth Bitting. “A fun day in YAKIMA!!!”

“Yep, good stuff,” added boys’ coach Bob Martin.

And the Wolves get right back at it after a sleep, with their athletes primed to compete in seven prelims and five finals during day #2 at Zaepfel Stadium.

One meet left, with one giant stage on which to shine.

Coupeville High School track and field athletes head to Yakima this week for the 2B state championships, which go down May 25-27.

Counting alternates for two relay squads, 22 Wolves will be on the bus as the wheels go round and round during the cross-state trek.

A number of those CHS track stars feature in our final look at the top 10 performances in 2B this season, while some do not.

While Coupeville had this past weekend off, other schools across the state wrapped up their own district, bi-district, and tri-district meets, and now the numbers are set in stone.

But again, as you scan the numbers below, a reminder that you can be in the top 10 and NOT go to state, while you can also be state-bound and NOT be on this list.

Track and field, forever tricky and full of intrigue.

It’s like the Wild West out here, or at least the version depicted in films.

There’s always another gunfighter coming around the corner, looking to make a name for themselves by plugging you in the back.

Take a week off from competition, like the Coupeville High School track and field team just did, and it’s likely your numbers, no matter how good they are, will slip a bit.

Take a look at the Top 10 list for 2B schools and that’s what you’ll see, as the Wolves only held on to two slots from a week ago.

Carolyn Lhamon is still 3rd in the shot put and Alex Murdy remains 2nd best in the long jump.

Every other Coupeville athlete on the list took a hit, including Lyla Stuurmans (400) and the boys 4 x 100 relay team being temporarily nudged out of the top spot by active athletes.

But there’s good news.

The Wolves get back at it this week, with a home meet Wednesday and a trip to Snohomish Saturday, giving Whidbey’s gunslingers two chances to return fire.

As the season continues to follow its winding path, where CHS athletes land among all 2B athletes through April 17:
