TRACK - Centennial sprinter wins the 400-meter dash and the 300 hurdles
PORTLAND - Team Oregon got a hefty boost from local athletes to power past Washington 93-42 at the Border Duel Track Classic on Saturday at Lewis and Clark College.
Centennial junior Annelise Coxeff provided 10 team points with a pair of first-place efforts. She opened the day by crossing first in a tight 400-meter final (59.03) that saw the first four runners hit the finish line within a second of each other. She finished the day with a win in the 300 hurdles (45.65), edging Hanna Tarleton of Sehome, Wash., by .17 hundredths.
Barlow senior Dannah Martin finished second in the pole vault by clearing 11-feet-2-inches - just an inch short of her personal best. She cleared her final two heights on her second attempt to secure a spot on the awards podium.
'It's my first time over 11 feet since the Centennial Invite (mid-April), so it felt great to get over that again,' Martin said.
Jennifer DeBellis of Columbia River, Wash., won the event at 11-6.
