He went out like a champ.

Just a few days before graduation, Coupeville High School senior Aidan Wilson finished 7th out of 32 competitors at the 51st annual Dennis McDonald Multi Events State Championship.

The two-day event, which ran Friday and Saturday at Lake Stevens High School, put athletes through 10 events, as they ran, jumped, and threw in a decathlon.

Arlington senior Ryan Rushton came from behind to nip day #1 leader Tomeko Cates of Mary Walker for the title, racking up a 6,253-6,087 points advantage.

Wilson finished with 5,452 points.

The opening day featured competition in the 100, 400, shot put, high jump and long jump.

Back at it Saturday, Wilson busted through the 110 hurdles in 17.54 seconds, while rambling across the finish line in 4:35.40 in the 1500.

The Wolf senior also threw the javelin 135 feet, six inches, tossed the discus 91-06, and soared through the air in the pole vault, clearing the bar at 9-04.

“Long couple of days for him, but he was doing great!” said Coupeville High School track coach Bob Martin.

During his time at CHS, Wilson brought home five medals from the state track and field championships, winning two as a junior and three as a senior.

Thos two trips were the only ones he was eligible for, as the pandemic erased all spring sports when he was a freshman.

As a sophomore, Wilson and Co. returned to regular season action, but all postseason events were scrubbed.

He’s on the prowl.

Fresh off earning three medals at the state track and field championships, Coupeville High School senior Aidan Wilson is back out there, kickin’ fanny and takin’ names.

This time around, he’s competing in the 51st annual Dennis McDonald Multi Events State Championship.

The two-day event, which runs Friday and Saturday at Lake Stevens High School, features a 10-event decathlon for male competitors and a heptathlon for females.

At the midpoint of the meet, Wilson sits in 5th place, out of 32 athletes vying in the decathlon.

The multitalented Wolf has racked up 2,968 points through five events, while six-time state champ Tomeko Cates, a junior at Mary Walker, tops the standings with 3,608.

Wilson ran the 100 in 11.97 seconds Friday, hurled the shot put 35 feet, 6.5 inches, and hit the tape in the 400 in 54.01.

He also cleared 5-06.50 in the high jump and 19-10.75 in the long jump.

Saturday’s schedule includes the 110 hurdles, the discus, pole vault, and javelin, as well as the 1500.

It’s an event so big it takes two trips to Lakewood to complete.

Coupeville Middle School track and field athletes officially wrapped their season Wednesday at Day #2 of the Cascade League Championships.

The seven-team royal rumble started May 25, with a ton of prelims and a couple finals, then athletes came back to finish things off on the final day of the month.

The big highlight for Coupeville Wednesday was a win in the high jump from 7th grader Wyatt Fitch-Marron, who soared to an even five feet.

But his triumph wasn’t the only bright spot, as numerous Wolves captured PR’s and CMS nailed down a pair of 2nd place finishes.

Wolf 6th grader Collin Mirabile was runner-up in the shot put, a feat matched by a 4 x 100 relay squad made up of 7th graders Nick Laska, Beckett Green, Roger Merino-Martinez, and Nathan Niewald.

Regardless of where they placed in the standings, every Wolf in competition earned some praise from their coaches.

“Our athletes continued to perform well during our district finals today,” said Jon Gabelein.

“Our 8th grade athletes will be strong additions to the high school track program next year,” he added.

“While the majority of our athletes are 6th/7th grade students this year and provide our program with a great foundation next year.”

While the season is done, the future is a bright one for the young Wolves.

“We are proud of all they accomplished this season,” said fellow CMS coach Amber Wyman. “And I am sure they will continue to improve.”
