Last season the Lion girls and boys found success at the state 3A championships, finishing ninth and 13th, respectively.

This year Auburn Mountainview’s boys look to seniors Chris Scharer and Nicholas Aumua to set the tone.

Last season Scharer finished 15th in the 800 at state. This year he has already posted a personal best in the event, with a 1:58.82 at the Kent-Meridian Invitational on March 30. Scharer’s time is the seventh-best 3A 800 in the state.

In 2012, Aumua took home third in the discus at the state meet with a toss of 153-1. Already this year Aumua has bested that distance by chucking a personal-best 159-7.00 against Auburn on March 20.

The Lions’ 400-relay team with Devin Bryant, Elliott Pelfrey, Ray Hardaway and Andrew Korchemniy should also compete for postseason berths.

On the girls side, junior Rachel Greve is fifth in the state 3A ranks in javelin with a 114-4 distance.

Auburn Mountainview’s 400- and 1,600-relay teams should also be competitive in league and beyond.
