Indians happy to get in a meet after two weeks of practice
Full results from Thursdays Anderson Relays were a little sketchy, but the Scappoose Indians boys track team looked a lot like they will be a force in the 4A ranks this season.
Tribe Coach David Harley was pretty pleased with the performances he got from both the boys and girls.
Our boys are right where we had hoped they would be after two weeks of practice. We appear to be very good in the sprint races, and much improved in the field and distance events, Harley said.
The Indians picked up some senior boys who skipped baseball this year, and its going to help the track team.
Having two guys like Kenny Klippel and Paul Revis step in with the performances they had in their first meet just solidifies that belief, the coach added. Their opening marks were pretty impressive, but not entirely surprising given that we knew that they are both solid athletes.
Klippel won the shot with a 42-feet, 4.5-inch throw, and also the javelin with a 151-7 toss. Revis went 21-5 in his first long jump, easily winning that event, and also posted a quick third leg of the 4x100 relay, which Scappoose won.
The Indians lost just one runner from that relay team that qualified for state last season. Revis and freshman Braden Clark were on the team Thursday. League 100-meter champion, Jadyn Harris took home the baton in the anchor leg. Harris also had the best time in the 300 hurdles.
Also coming back to the team this year after some time away, Jabin Pedro who won the discus.
It was difficult to determine some individual times in a relay meet, but overall it was an impressive start for the boys.
The Scappoose girls were missing some of their elite racers in the competition. Distance runner Tia Carnahan was nursing a minor injury, while sisters Charlie and Lucy Davidson were off on a jaunt to Las Vegas.
Obviously on the girls side we were missing some key individuals, but overall we were pleased with the effort of both teams, Harley noted.
The Lady Indians got a 79-2 in the discus from Arden Jones and freshman Jessie Powell tied for first in the high jump. Carly DiPietro won pole vault and had the best Scappoose marks in the long jump and triple jump.
The Indians were at Sweet Home on Thursday for the Darrel Deedon Icebreaker. They should have a larger complement at that meet.
Next week we will see better competition and get more athletes involved so we should be able to get a good look at most of our team, Harley said. We will still have some kids missing until after spring break, but I know the kids who didn't compete yesterday are quite excited to get going with their season.
