The Trojan boys’ strengths lie in the arms and legs of their distance runners and throwing corps this season.

On the track Auburn looks to senior Tyler Flannery, who will run for Seattle University next year, to lead the way. Flannery is tops in the SPSL 4A in the 1,600 with a 4:28.34 and second in the 3,200 with a 9:50.30.

Senior Kevin Shelton made it as far as the district meet last year in the discus and shot put. Already this season Shelton has notched personal bests in both events, with a 48-10 1/4-inch shot put throw and a 140-7 discus mark.

For the Trojan girls, senior Anna de Carteret looks to return to the postseason in the 3,200. She is seventh in the SPSL 4A with a 12:10.30. Her personal best time in the event is a 11:51.14, set in 2011 when she appeared at the West Central District 4A meet.
