t Sophomore Boddie wins 300-meter hurdles after early-morning soccer match.

Earlier in the day, South Kitsap High School sophomore Christina Boddie was playing for West Sound FC.

By Saturday afternoon, her focus had shifted from soccer to the South Kitsap Invitational, where she won the 300-meter hurdles in 48.64 seconds despite battling the intermittent rain and snow featured throughout the day.

“The last two hurdles were especially hard,” Boddie said. “It was a busy day for me.”

And a successful one for her and South’s girls team, which finished first among 17 schools with 109 points. The boys team finished second with 108.5 points, three behind Federal Way.

“She’s tough,” South coach Joanne Warren said. “We’re going to have to rest her this week.”

She added that, “We needed this one,” in reference to the girls team performance. In addition to Boddie, senior Lindsey Porter won the pole vault at 10 feet, 6 inches for the Wolves, but she wasn’t satisfied with her performance.

“They started me at 10-6 and then added another foot,” said Porter, adding that she could have done better if she had more time to warm up.

South sophomore Jasmyn Bolar finished second in the long jump at 15-10 behind Kingston’s Kayla Campbell(16-1). Bolar said she was happy with the finish because she didn’t expect to place that high.

Erica Copeland also placed second for the Wolves in the 1,600 run at 5 minutes, 37.08 seconds behind Auburn’s Michael Paulson (5:25.67). South senior Caitlin Daniels finished third in the 400 dash at 1:05.96.

“We had someone on the podium for just about all the events, which is great given our inexperience,” Warren said.

Perhaps the most compelling race for the Wolves on the boys side was the 1,600 relay.

The South team, which included juniors Corey Galligan, Dan Nadeau and Jon Phillips and sophomore Leon La Deaux, thought they had an opportunity to catch Federal Way for the team title when it was announced they were in second place.

It was a statistical impossibility at that point, but the lack of knowledge didn’t hurt the Wolves, who won the event in 3:29.53, while Bainbridge finished second at 3:33.63. Nadeau said that was important because his team didn’t run the 400 relay.

“We wanted to show Bainbridge we weren’t going to shut down,” he said.
