With dominant efforts at the windy Skyview Invitational, Tyler Spalding and Thit Bak proved they are state-title contenders.
In three events apiece.
Spalding, a senior at Kenai Central, and Bak, a junior at Skyview, each earned individual championships Friday and Saturday at the annual track and field meet at Skyview High School.
Spalding, the defending Class 4A state champion in the triple jump and high jump, won the high, triple and discus. Bak, a foreign exchange student from Denmark, swept the jumping events. Not that she planned on it.
