Tribe dominates Cowapa League district meet
Scappoose sends 13 boys on to state meet; girls send six
The Scappoose Indians used a decisive speed advantage to dominate district and send 13 boys on to the 4A state meet in Eugene in 10 events.
The Tribes depth in the speed events (and a few others) helped them finish nearly 100 points ahead of their nearest competitors. The Indians won both relays, took first in the 100, 200, and 300 intermediate hurdles, plus swept the long jump, finished 2-3-4 in the triple jump, won the javelin, and had seconds in the 400, high jump, intermediate hurdles and pole vault.
I think just about everything went as hoped or according to form charts going in, Scappoose coach David Harley said, but we also had some boys events give us surprises and more points than we were expecting including Braden (Clark) getting third in the long jump, Kyle (Kramer) in the 300 hurdles and triple jump, Asa (Flanagan) in the high jump, etc.
The Indians couldnt rest on their laurels in the relays. The state meet added 3A, 2A, and 1A to a schedule already tight with 6A, 5A, and 4A. The relays are seeded by time from district.
Harley said he had several discussions with the relay teams about finishing with a good time to get into the fast heat at state.
The Indians team of Jayden Harris, Jarrett White, Justice Oman and Paul Revis turned in a 43.89 to qualify for the fast heat in the 4x100. La Pine has the fast time of 43.21 but the Indians are close with a 43.40 earlier.
Scappoose had recorded the fastest 4x400 relay time in the state going into district, and they stayed in the hunt to defend their state championship of last year with a 3:26.66, just under La Salles time of 3:26.22. Mychal Hortert, Nick Rust, Revis and Oman held off Tillamook (3:27) to win the event.
Oman, a junior, played a big part for the Tribe. He finished second to Tillamooks Markus Pullen by just one one-hundredth in 50.43 in the 400 meter dash. It was the same pair on the last leg of the 4x400 and this time Oman prevailed. They go into state with the third and fourth best times in the 400.
Senior Paul Revis ran superbly in both relays. He took the handoff from Oman to clinch the 4x100. Revis won the long jump on a windy day Thursday with a subpar 19-feet, 9.5 inches. Oman was just two inches behind him. Freshman Braden Clark made it a sweep in the event with a third and heads to state because Oman withdrew to concentrate on track events.
Revis won the 100-meter dash but his time on the Seaside track is just eighth best for state.
Joining in the mix for Scappoose was freshman Jarrett White with a solid second in the 100 and first in the 200, plus running on the short relay.
Harris cruised to a win in the high hurdles, despite knocking down the last hurdle. Kyle Kramer finished second in the event to also earn a trip to state.
The only other first for the boys was Kenny Klippel with a 146-9 toss in the javelin. Other seconds included Asa Flanagan in the high jump (5-10), Mick Vanek in the pole vault (11-6), and Joey Krupsky in the triple jump.
The girls didnt quite have as good a meet as the boys, finishing fourth overall. They did qualify a number of athletes for state.
Leading the way for the Tribe was junior Charlie Davidson. She has placed in state in four events over the last two years, including winning the 1,500 as a freshman.
Harley called Davidson aside before the 1,500the second running event on Friday.
I told her that it was not necessary to expend a lot of energy or effort to win the race, he said. I wanted her to get through the meet with as little expense of energy and effort as possible, as we prepare for state. I think she ran well within her ability. Seeds and lanes are not as critical in the distance events, obviously.
Davidson stayed with the pack and then pulled away over the last two laps for a relaxed win.
She had to go a little harder in the 800 and she took Abby Kessi with her, both qualifying for state.
Davidson also ran the anchor leg for the 4x400 relay team that took second. She closed on the Yamhill-Carlton team that took first, but there was a big gap. Haley Wight, Kessi, Eleanor Jones, and Davidson make up the team. Abby Flanagan is an alternate.
Jones, a freshman, was disappointed finishing third in the hurdle events even though she ran her second-best time in the high hurdles, and her best time in the 300 hurdles.
The only other Lady Indian to qualify for state was Carly DiPietro. She was second in the pole vault (8-6) and moved up to qualify for state in the triple jump (32-0) after the winner withdrew.
