Track team battles Clackamas

The West Linn track teams put up an impressive fight against Clackamas in a league dual meet last week, going toe to toe against perhaps the deepest team in the TRL.

Both the boys and girls teams dominated on the track but struggled to match the Cavaliers' prowess in the field.

In the boys' meet, West Linn freshman Mason Craig captured the 100 meters, edging out teammate Kurt Moon by three hundredths of a second. Moon would go on to win the 200 meters.

The Lions swept the 800, 1500 and the 3000, going 1-2-3 in each of those events.

Roman Ollar won both the 800 and 1500. John Goetze took second in the 800 and third in the 3000, Connor Cushman took third in the 800 and the 1500 and Tyler Griffin was second in the 1500 and 3000.

Clackamas nearly swept the field events but senior Ethan Terner won the long jump with a leap of 19'8”.

In the girls' meet, Juliana Guthner and Madison Leek finished just five hundredths of a second apart in the 100, going 1-2 in the event.

Guthner and Boucher would take second and third in the 200 before Boucher went on to win the 400 by nearly a second.

Freshman Samantha Marioni captured the 800 and Leah Henningsen won the 3000 and finished second in the 1500.

The Cavaliers' girls team was equally strong in the field but the Lions were able to capture the long jump again.

Lacey Gunther won handily with a leap of 14'9”.

West Linn will compete in the Wilsonville Invitational this weekend.
