Lakeridge track team sets records at East County
The Lakeridge girls track team was dominant at last week's East County Classic at Mt. Hood Community College.
The Pacers set records and cruised to a victory by nearly 50 points over their closest competitor.
Lakeridge picked up victories in numerous events.
Krissy Hengesh turned in her best times of the season in both the 100 and 200 meters, winning both of those events handily.
Teammate Marissa Miller wasn't far behind, taking third place in each event.
Sydney Lautze and Lauren King finished neck and neck with a fifth and sixth place finish respectively in the 400 while Kelly O'Neill ran her best times of the year and captured both the 800 and 1500 impressively with her best times of the season.
Michelle Buncke and Laura Suzuki each cracked the top-10 in the 3000.
Madi Greenleaf tallied a sweep in the hurdles, winning both the 100 and the 300 with her best times of the year.
She is ranked in the top-three in 6A in both of those events with her times.
The Pacer girls also took third in the 4x100 relay.
Perhaps Lakeridge's most impressive showing was in the 4x400, its signature event.
The Pacers broke the school record and turned in the fastest time in the state so far. The team of Greenleaf, Lautze, Hengesh and King won in 4:06.32.
In the field, Maddie Moxness took fifth in the high jump while Saskia McNairy won the triple jump with her best time of the year and took fourth in the long jump.
The Lakeridge boys also made waves with their 4x400 relay team.
The team of Spencer Russell, Julian Heninger, Colton Ansberry and Michael Walker turned in the state's fastest time this year with a win in 3:27.27. Alex Alamida took fourth in the 100 and sixth in the 200.
Walker scored an individual victory in the 800, narrowly beating out teammate Ansberry in a 1-2 finish for Lakeridge.
Heninger also scored an individual victory in the 1500.
Russell was the runner-up in the long jump, nearly leaping 21 feet while Chris Scaffa was fifth in the discus and Nicholai Busch was fourth in the javelin.
