Rick Fillman and the Edmonds-Woodway boys and girls track teams launched the 2012 season with their first Wesco South league matchups against Jackson on Thursday, March 29. The boys lost to Jackson 73-54 while the girls were defeated 91-41.
The Warrior boys, who lost a great talent in Alec Fellows after last season, pulled out a 78-58 victory against Glacier Peak last week at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium in Snohomish. Jacob Roling showcased his efforts for Edmonds-Woodway as he placed first in the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash.
“I thought we did great last year,” says Fillman. “This year’s boys team should be stronger overall but we obviously will not replace Fellows with a single individual.”
Fillman’s Lady Warrior squad also put together a strong showing in last week’s meet, including first place finishes in the 200-meter dash and 100-meter hurdle events.
“The girls team is quite young, but has some good talent,” Fillman added.
The Warriors also lost their season opener against Lake Stevens on March 16.
