TRACK AND FIELD - Oregon's all-star beat Washington in the team dual format
PORTLAND - Sandy junior McKenzie Warren put together another solid effort at the Border Duel Track Classic on Saturday, matching top prep performers from four Northwest states.
Warren started her day by taking sixth in the shot put - one of the deepest competitions of the day with 21 entrants. She finished with a best effort of 39-feet-6-inches, which put her less than a shoe print out of fourth place. Bev Coleman of Bethel High School, Wash., won the event at 43-7.
Warren came back later in the day and finished second in the discus (129-2), finishing behind only Tera Novy of Montesano, Wash., who spun the discus for a meet record 143 feet.
Team Oregon dominated action on the track, scoring first-place points in all eight of the day's races, to beat Washington in the team dual 93-42.
On the boys side, Washington gave up only one point in the throws to secure a 78-57 dual victory. Barlow senior Arthur Delaney highlighted Oregon's day by bettering his meet record in the 400-meter dash with a time or 47.74. He also scored second-place points in the long jump.
The next major meet on the track schedule is the Junior Olympic state championships held June 23-26 in Salem.
