Lakeridge swept the Civil War track meet last week but both the Pacers and Lakers showed off their respective strong suits with solid performances in the first league meet for both squads.

In the girls meet, the 100 meters was a showdown between Lakeridge's Marissa Miller and Lake Oswego's Riley Hatfield. Hatfield won this round, edging out Miller by six hundredths of a second in 12.71. Miller would nip Lake Oswego's Emily Kelly in the 200 with a winning time of 27.40.

The Lakers finished 1-2 in the 800, led by strong times from Samarra Watson and Amy Moring. Howells and Moring would then finish first and second in the 1500 with Howells winning by three tenths of a second in 5:23.43.

Lakeridge claimed the 3000 thanks to Lia Newman's run in 11:22.9 ahead of Lake Oswego freshman Dulcie Jones in second.
