Parks, Foley, Viles shine as Crook County finishes sixth at Sisters invite

David Parks takes first place in 100-, 200-meter events

by: ANDREW MATHESON/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Kady Stafford finished second in the javelin competition with a throw of 113-2 at the Sisters Rotary Club Invitational on Saturday.

SISTERS - It was the first time Crook County junior David Parks was clocked in the 200-meters this year, and despite the wet and rainy conditions, he did not disappoint.
   On Saturday at the Sisters Rotary Club Invitational, which hosted 13 teams and some 900 athletes, Parks, who is currently ranked No. 1 in the Class 5A in the 100-meters with a time of 10.94 seconds, ran the 200 and clocked a 22.69, good enough for first place at Sisters.
   "It was good to see him get out there and move," Coach Ernie Brooks said.
   Parks also took first place in the 100 with a time of 11.08, and helped lead the Cowboys to a sixth-place finish out of 13 teams at Sisters with 62.5 points. Host Sisters and Mountain View tied for the top spot with 89 points.
   The Cowgirls also took sixth place out 12 teams with 55 points, and were led by Michelly Foley's first place finish in the 3,000. Foley's finish of 11:06.15 set a new meet record at the invitational.
   Additionally, Foley took third in the 1,500 (5:05.82), while in the field, Elizabeth Viles took first in the discus with a throw of 100-2, just two inches short of her personal record.
   "Foley and Viles are really coming along," said Brooks, who thinks that Viles should be able to throw at 110-0 as the season progresses.
   Also in the throws, Kady "The Beast" Stafford finished fourth (89-0) in the discus and second in the javelin (113-2), and freshmen Jessica McDonald took second in the shot with a throw of 30-2 - all good signs for the Cowgirls, especially with the inclement weather on Saturday.
   "It's a hassle," Brooks said. "You lose confidence because you're not sure if it's going to slip."
   Brooks said the squad is still working on finding depth, especially in the middle to long distances, and especially on the girls side. Some depth on the boys is Michael Gruber, who took fourth in the 100 (11.40) and fifth in the 200 (23.75) at Sisters.
   "It was a good meet, minus the rain, and a lot of kids PR'ed (personal record)," Brooks said. "And that's all you can ask for - do your job and do your best."
   Crook County will compete today, Tuesday, at Mountain View in a three-way meet with Gilchrist.
