McChesney breaks school record at Tualatin Invite
TUALATIN – Although Cam McChesney had a fantastic sophomore campaign, capped by a 10th-place finish at the OSAA 3A/2A/1A state cross-country meet, the Veritas standout was also frustrated not to post a new PR in 2017.
It took McChesney just two meets to make sure that won't be the case again in 2018, as he crossed the finish line in 16:32.5 to place seventh individually Saturday at the Tualatin Invite. The effort was good enough to break his own school record of 16:40.3, which he set as a freshman at the Regis/Stayton Invitational in 2016.
McChesney was one of three Vanguard boys in the varsity race Saturday, with Simmon Winnika coming in 86th in 20:14.45 and Eli Fitch finishing 119th in 23:21.43.
Veritas is young on the girls side and had three runners participate in the junior varsity meet Saturday, with Grace Wassei pacing the effort with a 31st-place effort (27.43.90).
The Vanguard will travel to Eugene Saturday to participate in the Northwest Classic at Lane Community College.
