Putting an exclamation point on a record-breaking year, Coupeville's Makana Stone placed second in the 400 meters at the state 1A track meet at Eastern Washington University in Cheney Saturday, May 31.

Stone covered the 400 in 58.65, finishing second to Northwest's Maya Jackson (58.23).

Stone's Cascade Conference rival Anna Parker of King's placed third. In recent meets, Parker finished ahead of Stone, but this time, when it mattered most, Stone defeated Parker by over a second (59.75).

All three of the top finishers are sophomores, setting up future showdowns among the tri-district trio. In fact, no senior ran in the finals at state.
