Curtis' Dakarai Hightower, Kennadi Bouyer, Girls 4x100 and Girls 4x200 Take State Titles

Results from the WIAA state track and field championships at Mt. Tahoma in Tacoma.

Curtis track and field is flexing its muscle in front of the state.

On Saturday at the WIAA Track and Field Championships at Mt. Tahoma High, Curtis' Kennadi Bouyer and its 4x100 girls relay team took 4A state titles.

Bouyer, a junior, cruised to the win in the girls 100m with a time of 12.10. The next best time was 12.24.

Then, the quartet of Kira Perkins, Shelby Vaver, Kenya Shakoor and Bouyer captured the girls 4x100 with a time of 48.31, almost a whole second better than second runner-up Federal Way.

Also, the team of Perkins, Vaver, Shakoor and Adreonia Bradley took first in the 4x200 relay with a time of 1:42.29, edging Issaquah.

This came a day after Curtis' Dakarai Hightower took the state high jump crown Friday.

The senior cleared a mark of 6-10, which was 4 inches better than the next best jump.

The Seattle Times captured a great picture of Hightower here.

Congrats to all the Vikings for making us proud!

Congratulations to Dakarai, Kennadi and the girls 4x100. I'm watching you all on the WIAA feed, and you all are fast!

Wow. That Seattle Times photo looks like Dakarai cleared it by at least 6 inches. I wonder if that was the 6'10" jump.

Hi Dan - Yeah, I was wondering that too. TNT spoke to Dakarai and he said he was trying 7 feet three times. He came up just short each time, but it sounded like he had springs in his shoes Saturday. It wouldn't surprise me if he cleared 6-10 easily the first time.
