Cascade Christian hurdler wins two events

Cascade Christian sophomore Spencer Ramos added a 1A boys 300-meter hurdles title to the 110-meter hurdles crown he won earlier today.

Ramos took the lead for good at the second-to-last hurdle when he passed King’s Austin Dean.

Ramos turned out for the track team after being persuaded by coach Josh Hoff and he began doing the hurdles about a few weeks into the season. Less than two months later, he’s a double-winner at the state meet.

“I can’t believe it,” Ramos said.

Two more records have fallen. Prosser’s Cade Wandling broke the 2A boys meet mark in the 400, running a 48.38 seconds. The previous best of 48.50 was set in 2002 by Mount Baker’s Mike Rawlins.

In the 2A boys pole vault, Ephrata’s Wes Chamberlain set a record by going 15 feet, 5 inches. Cashmere’s Evan Whitehall had the previous mark of 15-4.
