Elma nips Hoquiam and Monte in co-ed relays


RAINIER — Elma used its strength in the shorter and middle-distance races to edge Hoquiam and Montesano for team honors in the Louise Rota Co-Ed Relays on Thursday at Rainier.

The Eagles scored 43 points to nip Hoquiam by two and Montesano by three points. Rainier and Tenino rounded out the field.

Each relay unit consisted of two boys and two girls.

Elma won the 4x100, 4x400, 4x800 and sprint and distance medleys, plus the triple jump relay. Jacob Stevens and Wyatt Gray went 1-2 in the male portion of the latter event.

Hoquiam predictably scored big in the field relays, taking the javelin, high jump, long jump and pole vault.

Two-time state champion Cole Smith cleared 6-6 in the boys portion of the high jump, while Mikaila Johnson had the top girls mark of 4-10 in that event. Hoquiam’s Evan Erickson, making his season debut, edged Smith for the best boys javelin mark at 176-2.

Montesano continued its solid performances in the distance races.

Bulldog girls coach Doug Schupbach cited Gabrielle Rudolph, Andrea Ostwald, Tyson Lovell and Conner Lovell for their performances in the distances, Ben O’Brien in the discus and Logan Truax in the long jump and pole vault. Monte’s Jennifer Johnson established a personal best of 13-6 in the long jump, while Kaitlyn Bradley had a good mark in the girls discus.

Schupbach thanked Rainier for agreeing to host the meet, named in honor of former longtime Montesano coach Louise Rota. Montesano’s track is out of commission this season.

Bobcat girls win

CENTRALIA — Dominating the throwing events, Aberdeen’s girls nosed out Centralia in an Evergreen 2A Conference meet Thursday at Tiger Stadium.

The Bobcats scored 46 points to beat the Tigers by two.

Centralia dominated the boys meet, 86-21 1/2.

Aberdeen’s Megan West, Dani Stanton and Cathryn Paris swept the top three places in the girls shot put. The same trio also went 1-2-3 in the discus. Paris won the latter event with a personal best mark of 88-3.

Jade Caskey was a double winner in the girls sprints for the Bobcats.

“For a first meet, I thought the girls were very impressive,” Aberdeen coach Sherrie Green said. “A lot of the girls did multiple events. They did the most they could do and had a lot of high placements.”

Green also was pleased with the performance of the Aberdeen boys, who are shy on numbers and experience this year. Aberdeen’s Brock Struthers and Bryceson Talley took the javelin and shot, respectively, while Joseph Bowley prevailed in the 800 meters.

Bobcat distance ace Poli Baltazar did not compete.

Aberdeen will be idle until after spring break.

Ocosta meet

WESTPORT — Raymond’s boys and North Beach’s girls took team honors in a seven-school meet hosted by Ocosta on Thursday.

The Gulls dominated the boys meet, nearly doubling the total of runner-up Willapa Valley.

With 136 points, North Beach outpointed Raymond (129) and Willapa Valley (124) for their first meet win of the season.

North Beach’s Crystal Lynch set a new career mark in the discus with a throw of 118-11 and fell less than a foot shy of breaking the school shot put record with a toss of 38-2 1/2. She is the state’s top-ranked girls discus thrower in the 2B classification. Teammate Paola Robles was a double winner in the 200 and 400 meters.

With a personal-best throw of 136-8, North Beach’s Caleb Bridge came within seven inches of breaking a 20-year-old school discus record.

“We go into spring break this year as a program with the most confidence I’ve noticed in my 13 years here at North Beach,” Hyak coach Bob Wiley said.

Raymond’s Alex Vaca doubled in the boys 800 and 1,600 meters, while Darol Ratsavongsy took the shot put in his season debut.

Hannah Dykes was a triple winner for Raymond’s girls. Courtney Hagain established a significant personal best in the girls 3,200.

“Very good conditions, so we got to see good times and good marks for where we are in the season,” Gull coach Mike Tully said.

Willapa Valley’s David Rockett and Lauren Friese each notched pole vault-hurdles doubles. Viking coach Dave Ege was also happy with the showings of both mile relay teams.

“There weren’t any spectacular performances, but everybody showed a lot of improvement,” Ege noted.

Wishkah’s Keigan Gardiner and Ethen Arnold narrowly missed school records in the boys 200 and 400 meters, respectively.

“We had something like 26 PRs,” Wishkah coach Bob Eager said.

Payton West had four of those for the Loggerettes.

Ocosta’s Alex Herrera, making his season debut, won the high jump and triple jump, establishing a career best of 41-7 in the latter event. Wildcat coach Aaron Anderson also cited the performance of Becke Shurtz in the girls discus.
