2013-2014 Prep Sports Recap

The high school sports season wrapped up on Saturday so let’s take a look at how everybody fared this season.

There was one team state titles this year, brought home by the Northwest Christian girls cross country team, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering they’ve won eight straight 2B titles.  A few teams took second place in state: Capital volleyball and boys soccer, Timberline girls bowling, Tumwater football and girls track and field.

For individuals, Brooke Feldmeier led the way with three state titles. The Ole Miss bound Tumwater senior won 2A titles in the 100 meter hurdles, the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter dash.

Four individuals won multiple state titles. Capital junior Ryan Chase won two 2A titles for long jump and triple jump, Northwest Christian senior Karen Bulger took 2B titles in javelin and shot put, River Ridge junior Dejuan Frye won the 400 meter dash and was part of the first place 4×100 meter relay team and Tumwater sophomore Peyton Russell took home titles in long jump and triple jump.

And area wrestlers didn’t fare too bad. Jake Grantham took home the 3A 220 pound weight class title for North Thurston, Rochester’s Lucas Eastman won a 1A title in the 152 pound class, Yelm’s Darren Harris won the 4A 120 pound class title and Tumwater’s Megan Johnson won the 155 pound girls title.

Below are all the league champions, teams that participated in state tournaments and individuals that placed 5th place or higher. State champions are in italics.

Monday news and notes (Updated throughout the day)


Matt Johnson

Tumwater grad Matt Johnson ran with the second team defense last night for the Dallas Cowboys in their 24-21 win over the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame Game. Unfortunately for Johnson, who missed all of his rookie season with an injury, he landed awkwardly on a tackle and didn’t return. X-rays on his ankle were negative, but he will have an MRI when the Cowboys return to Oxnard, California this morning. – Link


Timberline alum Jonathan Stewart had surgery on both ankles this off-season and has yet to practice for the Carolina Panthers. The team says they have no idea when he will be ready to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list. – Link


New York Jets backup center Caleb Schlauderaff struggled in Saturday night’s scrimmage and the Shelton graduate is on the “roster bubble” in his third season with the Jets. – Link


Adam Conley won his fourth straight game on Saturday night allowing just two unearned runs in six innings of work. The Olympia grad gave up five hits and walked three while striking out five and ran his streak of innings without an earned run to 26 innings. He is now 11-4 this season with a 3.04 ERA. – Link


The Toronto Blue Jays promoted Olympia grad Kramer Champlin to advanced-A Dunedin last week after posting a 6-2 record with a 3.50 ERA with the Lansing Lugnuts. Champlin had a rough second outing in the Florida State League, though, allowing five earned runs in 2 2/3 innings on Friday night. – Link
