Sumner’s Katrina Drennen set meet records in both the 1600 and 3200 meters, claiming championships in both. Her runs of 4:58.11 and 10:35.08 topped the old marks of 5:01.1 and 11:03.5. Her best times in those events (4:50.47 and 10:35.08) have led state rankings all season, and she ranks among the top 20 all-time best times in the state. She also has a personal best of 2:14.71 in the 800 meters and has a relay split of 59 seconds on the 4x400 relay team this season. At 1500 meters in the prestigious Lake Washington Invitational, she topped one of the state’s strongest fields by three seconds at 4:34.86. Katrina has been invited to the USA Junior Meet to qualify for the Pan Am Games after qualifying easily in the 1500 and 3000 meter events. Captain of Sumner’s Track and Cross-Country teams for two years, she has a 3.7 grade point average and was the organizer of a Sumner Relay for Life senior project to benefit the American Cancer Society. In Cross Country, she was Sumner’s #1 runner for two years after winning the 2A state championship as a frosh at nearby Orting high school. In Cross Country she finished 8th out of 78 runners in the Nike Borderclash between Washington and Oregon stars. That won her a top ten finish and the coveted Nike Goddess of Victory award. She will run collegiately at the University of Montana next year.
