Sealby Brothers run up a storm at state meet

THE SEALBY brothers, Jacob and Lucas, had smoke coming out of their shoes this weekend at the state Class 4A track and field championships in Tacoma. The Wenatchee twins, who will be suiting up for Paul Wulff and the Cougars this fall as invited walk ons, ran all over the 100, 200 and 400 meter races despite inclimate weather.

Jacob, the defending state champ in the 400, defended his crown in that event with a season-best time of 47.66 seconds. Brother Lucas was third at 48.63.

In the 200 meters, Jacob finished second at 22.05 seconds and Lucas was fifth at 22.42.

In the 100, Lucas turned in a time 11.61 seconds, which was good enough for sixth. Meanwhile, in the long jump, Jacob claimed third after firing up a distance of 22 feet, nine and 1/4 inches.

The two brothers also make up half of Wenatchee High's defending state champion 4x400 relay team that was considered a favorite over the weekend. A lane violation dashed their hopes for a second state crown.

Both brothers are coming to WSU this fall as invited walk ons to the football team.

This past fall, Jacob earned All-State and league MVP honors after rushing for a school-record 1,732 yards. Lucas was a standout on offense as well, at receiver, but earned all-league plaudits for his work at linebacker.

At 6-1, 195, the pair figure to bulk up a bit and play outside 'backer at WSU, but with their quicks they could see time at safety.
