Track team battles Oregon City

Just one dual meet remains before districts


Just one more regular season meet remains for the West Linn track teams. The Lions took on a pair of strong and deep squads from Oregon City last week and the Pioneers came away with wins in both the boys and girls meets.

For the girls, West Linn tallied a 1-2-3 sweep in the 800, led by Johanna Briscoe in a time of 2:35 even. She was followed closely by teammates Cailin Guerins and Emily Jordan.

Oregon City would win the 1500 but West Linn countered with Adrienne Hohensee's victory in the 3000 in 12:44.81.

The Lions picked up a pair of wins in the hurdles. Diana Swanson won the 100 hurdles in 16.7 seconds and captured the 300 in 50.06 seconds.

West Linn cruised to a win in the 4x400 relay as well with Emily Hamel, Samantha Marioni, Audrey Clow and Isabella Reichner leading the way.

Freshman Meghan Carbiener scored another win in the discus with a throw of 108'7”. Madeline Darrow also picked up a win in the field, clearing 5'0” in the high jump.

West Linn's Emily Rissberger also scored a narrow victory in the long jump with a leap of 15'1.5”.

For the boys, the Lions got a 1-2 finish in the 800. Grayson Ollar won in 2:00.71 and Conor Egan just edged out the Pioneer's top runner in the event to take second.

Michael Katancik has another strong race in the 3000, winning the event in 9:55.37.

West Linn swept the hurdles on the boys side as well. Tristan Stallcup was a double winner, claiming the 110 hurdles in 15.53 and the 300 hurdles easily in 41.83.

Stallcup was also part of the Lions' winning 4x400 relay team along with Katancik, Roman Ollar and Lucas Evans.

Isaiah Molden scored a win for the Lions in the shot put with a toss of 41'9” but Oregon City was simply too deep and well-balanced.

West Linn wrapped up the regular season Wednesday against Grant, Lakeridge and Clackamas and districts will take place May 14 and 16 in Canby.
