Indians take it easy at Sweet Home track meet

Kenny Klippel wins shot and javelin at 5-team track meet


by: JOHN BREWINGTON - Carly DiPietro, shown here at the Anderson Relays, also had some good efforts at a meet in Sweet Home last week.With spring break just a day away and the season still young, the Scappoose Indians didn’t go all out at the Darrell Deedon Invitational Icebreaker in Sweet Home last week.

The Tribe was still missing some athletes and tried not to overwork anyone, but they had some good individual and relay performances.

Coach David Harley noted, “It was a lot of fun to see so many of our athletes get their first taste of high school track and field. The teams that competed had several first time track and field athletes and it was a great experience for everyone.”

Harley added that the Indians wouldn’t be at full strength until their April 11 meet with Banks in Scappoose.

“That will be interesting to see where we are when we have a full complement of athletes.

“Jadyn (Harris) had a thigh muscle that felt sore and kind of tight so we just held him out for precautionary reasons. Tia (Carnahan) is still getting up to full speed after having a sore knee, and for Charlie (Davidson) it was her first meet and we just wanted to get an idea of where she is aerobically in a longer race.”

All three are state placers and district champions in several events.

Kenny Klippel, a junior, out for track for the first time, has been dominant in some of the throwing events. Klippel had a 43-feet, 3-inch toss to win the shot put and went 138-0 in the javelin to also win it.

Senior Paul Revis, also out for track for the first time, was second in the long jump with a 20-7 leap, took third in the 100, just a hundredth of a second out of second place, and led off the winning 4x100 meter relay team.

Scappoose was missing Cowapa League 100-meter champ Jadyn Harris, and shuffled the relay line-ups around just a bit. Nick Rust, Jarrett White, and Matt Shoun were also on the 4x100 relay team. The Tribe was just third in the 4x400 relay, an event they are defending 4A state champs in.

Also of note, freshman Jarrett White took third in the 200, and Asa Flanagan, a sophomore, was second for the Tribe in the high jump, leaping 5-10.

The Tribe girls have some holes to fill and still some athletes out, but they got a big boost from freshman Eleanor Jones, who won both hurdle events, by good margins.

Junior Charlie Davidson returned for her first meet, but just ran the 3,000, which she won by over 30 seconds with a 10:51.31.

The girls’ 4x100 relay team of Hannah Carey, Kayleigh Horecky, Jones, and Phylicia Haigh took second overall in the event. Carly DiPietro was second in the triple jump (30-3.75) and third in the long jump, 13-11.5. She also placed fourth in the pole vault.

The Indians will get down to business when they host Banks on April 11. They are at the Lower Columbia Invitational on Saturday, April 13.
