North Beach meet

OYEHUT — North Beach’s boys and Willapa Valley’s girls capitalized on outstanding weather conditions to take team honors at a multi-school meet Thursday at Ed Garity Track.

The Hyak boys, with 188 points, finished 46 ahead of runner-up Ocosta. Valley’s girls topped North Beach, 166-132.

With temperatures near the 80-degree mark, marks were very good for all schools.

North Beach honored its four seniors — Quay Sotomish, Carson Ketter, Chris Horn and Briason Moses — prior to the meet. The first two celebrated with multiple wins.

Sotomish established personawl bests in all four of her girls events, winning the 100 hurdles and long jump and running strong legs on the 4x100 and 4x200 relays. The latter foursome was clocked in 1:54.1, falling just short of a school record.

Ketter won the 100 meters, ran on the winning sprint relay foursome and established a personal best in the boys javelin.

“The day belonged to our two seniors,” North Beach coach Bob Wiley said.

North Beach’s Caleb Bridge took the shot and discus. Wiley cited the performance of his male discus throwers, who swept the top five places.

Willapa Valley demonstrated its characteristic strength in the girls field events. Lauren Friese cleared 9-6 in the pole vault and the Vikings also received field-event victories from Kate Rockett in the javelin, Shania Barton in the high jump and Brooke Spoor in the triple jump.

Valley’s Matt Konigsberger took more than a second off his previous best in the boys 400 meters.

Taholah’s Jon Jackson, however, edged Konigsberger in a battle of reigning state champions in the javelin.

“I’m pleased with where we’re at in the season and the weather helped out a lot,” Viking coach Dave Ege said. “It was nice to go out to North Beach and not have it rain sideways and be 45 degrees.”

Ocosta’s Alex Herrera was a triple winner in the jumps, clearing 6 feet in the high jump.

Wildcat coach Aaron Anderson commended McKenzie Ballo, who set a PR in the girls 1,600, and Luke Anderson, who was a doiuble winner in the 800 and 1,600. Recovering from a quadricep injury, Anderson ran the 1,600 for the first time.

Naselle meet

NASELLE — A strong effort by Raymond’s boys claimed this six-team small-school meet, while the South Bend girls stayed close to rival Northwest Christian, at Naselle on Thursday afternoon.

In hot weather that affected distance runners, but forced all of the competitors to adjust, the meet featured strong marks with postseason meets on the horizon.

Raymond’s Rayce Newman used the good weather and strong field to match or possibly break the school record in the 100-meter sprint — officially at 11.04 seconds electronically. Jesse Buchanan, in the mid-1990s, set the school record in the event at 11.1 seconds. Seagull coach Mike Tully described Newman’s effort as tying the school mark.

“Overall, it was nice to have some warm weather and get some good times and marks,” Tully said.

Tully cited Newman for his run in the 100m, along with Alex Vaca in the 400m; Hunter Borden for sweeping the hurdles, including a first-time run in the 110m high hurdles that beat his best time from last season; the boys 400-meter relay and Patty Rojas, who won the pole vault.

Makenzie Russell won the high jump and triple jump for South Bend in her first meet back from a knee injury. Head coach Steve Lazelle cited her, along with freshman A.J. Sanchez in the 300 intermediate hurdles and Spencer Case in wins in the javelin and high jump.

Wishkah head coach Bob Eager was pleased with his athletes, singling out freshman Will Fultz, who was third in the 100 and 200 sprints and anchored the Loggers’ second-place 400m relay team, and Ryan Anderson, who hit PRs in the 100, 200 and triple jump.

On Saturday, teams will send some individuals to the Shelton Invitational before returning to dual meet action at Raymond on Thursday.
