Senior Aubrie Bass got the job done in the throws, winning the shot put (29-8) and the discus (105-6).
Cavalier junior Caitlyn O'Neill was tough in the horizontal jumps, leading the sweep in the long jump with an effort of 15-8, and soaring 33-4-1/4 for first place in the triple jump.
Other winners for Clackamas boys included: junior Gabe Garza in the 400 (53.1), sophomore John Paden in the 800 (2:02.4), senior Grant Eldridge in the 1,500 (4:12.2), junior Cyrus Jones in the shot put (43-10), senior Daniel Hallock in the javelin (160-6), junior Alex Galvan in the triple jump (39-2-3/4) and senior Kyle Salgado in the pole vault (13-0).
