Medical Lake track and field was tripped up taking the final steps to the top spot on the podium at the 1A state track meet May 25-27 at Yakima's Eisenhower High School.
Last fall's state champion in cross country, Reid Headrick, and an odds-on favorite for yet another gold medal, had his opponent, Bodie Thomas of Vashon Island out kick him in the final stretch to win the 3,200 meters by just over two seconds.
Thomas, a freshman, turned in a personal record time of 9 minutes, 13.84 seconds to Headrick's 9:15.87, not only a PR but also a new state record. But obviously, so did Thomas.
