Times Stars Of The Week

Breck Ivy, Highline track and field

Ivy, a senior, came up with his biggest javelin throw of the season in the biggest meet - the Class AA state championships. He heaved the spear 199 feet, 10 inches - his personal best by 11 feet. The second-place throw, by Franklin Pierce's Justin St. Clair, was 188-10 - short of his state-leading best of 202-6.

Courtney Perkins, Mount Rainier tennis

Perkins, a freshman, captured the Class AA state singles title by beating a familiar opponent, teammate Lara Botts, 6-2, 6-3. Botts, a state-tournament veteran, placed fourth her freshman season, third as a sophomore and second last season. Perkins also beat Botts for the Seamount League and Sea-King District titles.

Lindbergh baseball team

The Eagles, coached by Craig Wrolstad, successfully defended their Class AA state title in dramatic fashion. They went 12 innings to beat top-ranked West Valley of Yakima 2-0 in the semifinals. Tyler Willis threw 11 scoreless frames before a leg cramp forced him to the bench. In the final, Lindbergh rallied from a 2-0 deficit against No. 2 Capital of Olympia and won 4-3 on Kipp Wisk's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth.
