It takes a certain sense of synergy between teammates to be successful in a relay track event. It is not easy to develop that necessary chemistry.
The Mount Si High School boys 4×400-meter relay team, however, had no problem bonding, a wonder given that for three of the four members, it was their first year participating in Mount Si track.

When Maddie Hutchison looks over her shoulder, lately, during relay events for Mount Si High School, it’s her sister Mackenzie who’s passing her the baton.
As a junior, Maddie has enjoyed a two-year head start on her younger sister, now a freshman at Mount Si.
But, with two competitive athletes under one roof, the Hutchisons are the rare exception that seems to have avoided the awkward sibling rivalry. Read more

State champion keeps working toward goals
With one hurl of his javelin last spring, then junior Bradly Stevens became the top thrower in the nation for his age group.
His 205-foot-10-inch throw broke his own school record, and earned a first place at the state meet in Tacoma.
Then he threw again, that same day.
“Right about here,” he said lifting his arm sideways and flexing it 90 degrees so his fist was just above his temple, “I felt a pop.”
At first, he did not want to accept it, because he knew what lay ahead.
His brother, WSU javelin thrower and former Mount SI High School recordman, Kyle Stevens, had heard his elbow pop while throwing, and had been out a year.

It began with an innocent question between siblings Kyle and Bradly Stevens over the phone: How was your day?
Kyle, a junior at Washington State University, was asking Bradly, a junior at Mount Si High School.
Bradly said his April 2012 day went well. Had a track meet that day. Threw the javelin.
Kyle, a former javelin thrower at Mount Si, asked Bradly the question on both of their minds.
“Did you break my record yet?”
“Yup,” Bradly answered.
And so opened the third chapter in a story that becomes more unique with each time it happens: a Stevens becoming the top javelin thrower in school history.
Jim Stevens graduated as the record-holder in 1985. Almost a quarter-century later, his son Kyle became the new record holder in 2009.

It was only a matter of time.
Bradly Stevens, the youngest of five current or former javelin throwers in his family, became the first to grasp something his kin have been chasing since the mid-1980s: a state championship.
“It feels like a dream come true,” said Stevens, who broke the Mount Si High School javelin record for the fourth time this year at the state meet, with a throw measured at 205 feet, 10 inches.
Winning state, he said, has been the goal since day one.

We meet again, at the meet.
After a 23-year hiatus, the Mount Si Invitational Meet returned to life April 21 at Mount Si High School.
Teams from all over the Puget Sound area arrived to celebrate the revival of what once was a staple of the spring athletics calendar in the Snoqualmie Valley.
The hosts did themselves proud, not only with a picturesque day of cloudless sunshine, but by putting on good performances. The girls tied Marysville-Pilchuck for first place with 148 points.
