One meet is all it takes.

Competing in the 4 x 400 relay for the first time this season Saturday, the Coupeville High School girls track squad threw down the gauntlet.

A unit comprised of senior Lindsey Roberts and juniors Lucy Sandahl, Mallory Kortuem, and Maya Toomey-Stout roared to a 3rd place finish while running against 4A, 3A, and 2A schools at the Lil’ Norway Invitational.

Even before they had a chance to collect their ribbons, the blazing finish vaulted the Wolves relay team into the top 10 among all 1A schools this season.

So now, with two regular-season meets left to run, the CHS girls sit among the elite in all three relay events, and that’s just the start for Coupeville.

Danny Conlisk (400) and Jean Lund-Olsen (200) remain the #1 seeds in their respective events, while 10 Wolves are in the top 10 at least once.

As March fades into April, two Wolves are favorites for state track titles.

Coupeville High School senior Danny Conlisk and junior Jean Lund-Olsen currently top all 1A runners in the 400 and 200, respectively.

The duo headline a group of nine Wolves who appear in the Top 10 of at least one event.

Conlisk and fellow senior Lindsey Roberts appear in a team-best four categories, while Lund-Olsen and Mallory Kortuem show up three times apiece.

While everyone’s first inclination is to look at the front-runners, the most impressive showing might be coming from Roberts.

Everyone knew she was a superior hurdler and relay runner, but she picked up a new event this week, taking on the high jump.

Presto, a week in and two meets down, and Lou is #10 in 1A.

Plus, having already hit four feet, 11 inches, Roberts is just three inches off the school record of 5-02, set 20 years ago by Yashmeen Knox.


CHS athletes in the Top 10 of 1A (through 10:40 PM Mar. 31):



400 — Mallory Kortuem (3rd) 1:00.65

100 Hurdles — Lindsey Roberts (2nd) 16.06

4 x 100 Relay — Maya Toomey-Stout, Ja’Tarya Hoskins, Kortuem, Roberts (4th) 52.35

With the track season winding down, the battle at the top of the charts is ever more intense.

Even when you slice time off your previous best, every one is coming hard, leading some to drop down in the state-wide standings even though they’re actually running faster than before.

With two regular-season meets left for Coupeville, the Wolves currently have five boys and four girls who sit with one of the 10 best times among all 1A athletes.

Leading the pack are junior Lindsey Roberts and senior Jacob Smith, who each appear three times on the charts.

And, as soon as I post this story, some lollygagging coach or meet official will post a new time or 10,000, and the charts will once again ebb or flow.

But, at this exact moment, 7:36 PM, Sunday, Apr. 22, here’s how Coupeville stacks up against the best of 1A:



100 Hurdles — Lindsey Roberts (6th) 15.82 *Same position on charts as before*

4 x 100 Relay — Maya Toomey-Stout, Ashlie Shank, Mallory Kortuem, Lindsey Roberts (10th) 52.72 *Debuts on charts*

4 x 200 Relay — Kortuem, Roberts, Shank, M. Toomey-Stout (9th) 1:51.73 *Down three slots*



100 — Jacob Smith (5th) 11.32 *Same position on charts as before*

200 — Smith (7th) 23.26 *Down two slots*

400 — Danny Conlisk (6th) 51.97 *Down one slot*

4 x 100 — Jean Lund-Olsen, Smith, Sean Toomey-Stout, Cameron Toomey-Stout (10th) 45.34 *Down two slots*

The calendar is shrinking and the competition is getting tougher.

There are two regular-season track meets left for Coupeville High School athletes — including a home one with Lopez and Friday Harbor Monday (3:15 PM) — before the postseason takes everyone’s focus.

As of Sunday morning, eight Wolves have posted one of the top 10 performances in 1A this season.

Sophomore Lindsey Roberts leads the way, with her name popping up three times, once in an individual event and twice as part of relay teams.

Fellow state meet vet Jacob Smith, a junior, is the lone Wolf to appear in two different individual events.

The Top 10 CHS performances (valid as of 10:42 AM Sunday):


100 Hurdles — Lindsey Roberts (7th) 16.30

4 x 100 Relay — Lauren Grove, Roberts, Maya Toomey-Stout, Mallory Kortuem (10th) 52.17

4 x 200 Relay — Grove, Kortuem, Roberts, Toomey-Stout (7th) 1:50.23

High Jump — Cassidy Moody (5th) 5-00


100 — Jacob Smith (7th) 11.32

200 — Smith (4th) 23.08

Long Jump — Jacob Martin (7th) 20-07

Triple Jump — Mitchell Carroll (7th) 41-10.75

Cassidy Moody is one to watch.

The Coupeville High School freshman has thrown her name into state title contention in the past week, setting a PR in the high jump at Thursday’s home track meet.

Clearing an even five feet, she vaults all the way into a tie for the third-best performance by a 1A girl this spring, just four inches off state leader Sienna Swannack of Lakeside (Nine Mile).

Moody’s charge into the top 10 gives CHS eight athletes (five girls and three boys) who currently sit in the top 10 in at least one event among all 1A athletes this spring.

The Wolves narrowly miss out on having nine, as sophomore Danny Conlisk sits at #11 in the 400 and #12 in the 800.

Coupeville’s top 10 performances as of Sunday morning:


100 Hurdles — Lindsey Roberts (3rd) 16.30

4 x 100 — Roberts, Mallory Kortuem, Maya Toomey-Stout, Lauren Grove (5th) 52.69

4 x 200 — Grove, Toomey-Stout, Kortuem, Roberts (6th) 1:51.51

High Jump — Cassidy Moody (3rd) 5-00


200 — Jacob Smith (4th) 23.12

Long Jump — Jacob Martin (4th) 20-07

Triple Jump — Mitchell Carroll (10th) 39-11
