It was a 50/50 kind of day.

Coupeville High School had very little to do Thursday during the opening session of the 1A state track and field championships in Cheney, but the Wolves did advance two runners on to Saturday’s finals.

CHS senior Danny Conlisk and junior Jean Lund-Olsen both won their heats in the 100, clocking in with the exact same time at 11.05 seconds.

That put them behind defending state champ Micah Holmes of Lakeside, who hit the tape in 10.94 in the other prelim.

For Lund-Olsen, it was a PR, edging his previous best of 11.06, while for Conlisk it was just off his own school record of 11.04.

While they advanced, the Toomey-Stout twins did not.

Maya finished 11th in 12.83 (third in her heat), three slots shy of advancing.

Her brother Sean clocked in at 11.44, fifth in his heat and 16th overall.

Action heats up considerably for the Wolves Friday, as they have six prelims and two finals on the first full day of competition.

Emma Smith (shot put) and Maya Toomey-Stout (long jump) have finals, while the prelims feature Conlisk (200, 400) and Lund-Olsen (200) on the boys side.

For the girls, Lindsey Roberts (100 hurdles), Mallory Kortuem (400), and the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relay teams vie for slots in Saturday’s finals.

The state meet wraps Saturday, when Coupeville could be active in as many as 10 finals.
