SEASIDE — The Seaside track team hosted Tillamook in a low-key dual meet Thursday afternoon, with the Gulls and their young athletes improving their marks as they approach the midseason mark.

The Seaside girls scored several victories, including a sweep of the relays and two wins for Danielle Fitts in the throwing events.

Seaside sophomore sisters Danielle Willyard and Kelly Willyard had a 1-2 finish, respectively, in the 100 meters (times of 13.00 seconds and 13.28), while sophomore teammate Allison Kilday won the 200 meters in 28.47.

Kelly Willyard added a win in the long jump (14 feet, 4.25 inches), and Kilday took first in the pole vault (7-6).

Seaside dominated the throwing events, finishing 1-4 in the shot put, 1-5 in the discus and 1-4 in the javelin.

Fitts had a toss of 34-1 to win the shot put and a throw of 107-0 to easily win the discus. Melissa Stough took the javelin with an effort of 106-0.

Elsewhere, sophomore Charlotte Blakesley was a double winner (800 meters, 2:30.49 and the 1,500 meters, 5:08.20); and Haylie Moon won the 100-meter hurdles in 18.54.

On the boys’ side,  Tillamook swept the short sprints, but Seaside senior Brett Willyard won the 400 meters in 51.68 seconds, and teammate Marshal Ferre won the 800 meters in 2:08.96.

Dylan Townsend added a win in the 300-meter hurdles (46.91), and the foursome of Jefferson Farmer, Andrew Owens, Kyver Hamilton and Calvin Pollard took first in the 1,600-meter relay (3:46.25).

Like the girls, the Seaside boys dominated the throws, with Lucas Clark picking up a pair of wins in the shot put (43-5) and discus (139-7), while Zackary Hofmann won the javelin with a toss of 144-5, just ahead of teammate Daemon Didenti (144-1).
