Community notebook: Ridgefield’s Knight wins twice at Simplot Games

Vancouver Lake Half Marathon set for Sunday

Published:

Ridgefield High sophomore Trey Knight won the boys shot put and weight throw on Saturday at the 2018 Simplot Games indoor track and field meet in Pocatello, Idaho.

His mark in the shot was 62 feet, 11 inches.

“I was pretty nervous,” Knight said. “I had a good throw this time, and it was a little better than I had been averaging this season.”

Knight was one of two sophomores in the finals, and was the youngest competitor to place in the top six.

“My goal for next season is to be consistently over 65 feet,” Knight said.

Knight’s weight throw mark of 80-5 1/2 was a Simplot Games sophomore-class record. The second place thrower went 62-1 1/4.

This was the 40th annual Simplot Games, billed as the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. It is held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena.
