Gladiators take care of business with Stayton
Hathaway is a triple winner for Gladstone girls
Gladstone High School cindermen were dominant in last week's dual meet with Stayton, as they upped their dual record to 2-0 with a 106-39 dual-meet victory. Gladstone guys had handled Banks 82-62 in an earlier meet.
We only lost the high jump and 3,000, Gladstone coach Greg Hess said of the meet with Stayton. We won everything else, and we swept the shot put, discus and pole vault.
Hess said he sees his squad as possibly the best dual-meet team in the Tri-Valley Conference, and he sees his Gladiators battling five-time defending champion La Salle and North Marion for top honors at district.
My only concern in duals is that we'll be missing a bunch of guys when we go up against Molalla, Hess said. They're counselors at outdoor school.
The Gladiators had three double winners in the Stayton dual senior Trevor Browning in the 800 (2:14.58) and 1,500 (4:47.76), junior Armand Jayne in the 400 meters (53.7) and long jump (20-0-3/4), and junior Mac McCaslin in the high (18.18) and low hurdles (46.15).
Junior Kyle Kintz (10-6) led the sweep of the pole vault, junior Colton Anderson (97-0) led the sweep of the discus and sophomore Timothy Kolbert (39-1) led the sweep of the shot put.
Other Gladiator boys winning individual events included: junior Eric Prom in the 100 (11.84), sophomore Roman Chub in the javelin (137-3) and freshman Juesse Pummel in the 200 (25.01)
Gladstone girls were hurt by a lack of depth, as they lost a close meet with the Eagles.
Gladstone coeds won nine of the 15 individual events, but their only sweep came in the shot put.
Senior Kelsey Hathaway had a big meet, winning the girls 200 (28.32), 400 (1:02.75) and long jump (15-10-3/4).
Senior Chelsea Sound led the sweep in the discus (111-0) and she also won the shot put (31-3).
Other individual winners for the girls included: junior Claire Bailey in the javelin (105-7), junior Ashley Henry in the pole vault (7-0), sophomore Katy Storer in the 800 (2:49.56) and sophomore Jessica Petersen in the low hurdles (57.17).
The Gladiators travel to Oregon City this Saturday for the 27-team Willamette Falls Invitational. They vie in a league meet at Estacada on Wednesday, April 16.
