Javelin and shot put records fall again as Crook County duo continue to smash records

Kathryn Kaonis and Hannah Troutman continue their assault on the Crook County High School record book.

“It’s sort of been the story all year,” said Crook County Head Track Coach Ernie Brooks about the duo. “Breaking records.”

For the fourth consecutive week the senior throwers have broken school records. This time, Troutman smashed her school record in the javelin with a throw of 137-02. Meanwhile, Kaonis rebroke the shot put record, which she set last Saturday, with a heave of PHOTO COURTESY OF DOUG SMITH - Grayson Munn hands the baton off to Luis Rivera during the 4X400 relay at Crook County's dual meet with Summit on Wednesday. Crook County won the relay with a time of 3:34.27.

Troutman’s throw broke her previous school record by more than six feet and won the event by nearly 25 feet. The throw puts Troutman into second place in the state Class 4A standings. Kaonis also easily won the shot while Troutman finished second with a heave of 38-01. Kaonis is now leading the Class 4A in the shot put, while Troutman is in second place in the standings.

Also having an outstanding day for the Cowgirls was Laken Berlin who leaped 17-00 to win the long jump and take the Class 4A lead in the event.

“She just uncorked one,” Brooks said.

The Cowboys also had some great performances, including Grayson Munn running a Class 4A state-best time of 1:57.67 in the 800.

“Where do you want to start?” Brooks said. “Munn ran a state-leading time and he was all by himself.”

Michael Seyl also had a great meet, winning the 300 hurdles in a time of 41.99. Teammate Zane Abrams finished second with a time of 42.20. The duo are now ranked second and third in the district, with Abrams just ahead of Seyl based on season-best performances.

“That was a great race it came down to who was going to hit a hurdle and who was going to stick it out,” Brooks said.

Despite the record-breaking performances, Crook County still lost both the boys and girls dual meets to the Summit Storm, who ran a mixture of varsity and JV?athletes in the meet. Summit won the boys meet 83-60 and took the girls meet 80-60.

Other winners for the Cowgirls included Madie Bernard (100), Chelsea Thomas (800), and Danielle Michael (100 hurdles and pole vault). Kaonis led a Cowgirl sweep of the discus with a throw of 100-11. Troutman was second with a toss of 100-01 while Ashton Morgan was third with a throw of 99-11.

For the boys, other winners included Sam Santiago (400), Luis Rivera (3,000), Abrams (110 hurdles), and Cody Thurman (pole vault).

The Cowboy 4x400 relay team of Emmett Bailor, Shane Viescus, Grayson Munn and Luis Rivera also won, with a time of 3:34.27.

“It was just a great meet,” Brooks said. Dave Turnbull (Summit’s Head Coach) always puts on a great meet and we needed a hot meet to get sunburned and a little crunchy before district.”

Crook County has one final meet prior to district, which will be held May 16-17 in Baker City. The team will compete on Saturday, May 7 in the Wally Ciochetti Invitational in Cottage Grove.
