Happy Monday, y’all.

Budda Baker put on a show during his final state track and field championships this weekend, helping Bellevue High win its third consecutive Class 3A boys title.

The future UW safety won the 100- and 200-meter races. He won the 100 in 10.77 seconds and the 200 in 21.87 (with both races run into a headwind). Baker took second in the long jump (22 feet, 9.75 inches) and also ran the second leg in Bellevue’s 4×100-meter relay team, which won in 41.77. Max Richmond ran the anchor leg; Richmond plans to join the UW football team this summer as a preferred walk-on.

Marysville-Pilchuck’s Austin Joyner, a WSU commit, had the top qualifying time in the 100. Despite an injured hamstring, he participated in the 100 final, hopping the whole way to finish in 30.74 seconds.

On Sunday, Baker participated in a 7-on-7 tournament, along with another future Husky, Drew Sample.
