by: JIM BESEDA/MOLALLA PIONEER - Molalla's Josie Child (bib No. 1242), Audrey Bever, Desirae DesRosiers and Emily Bever placed sixth in the 4x400-meter relay with a season-best time of 4:08.78 Saturday at Hayward Field in Eugene.Molalla’s Audrey Bever, Emily Bever, Josie Child and Desirae DesRosiers make their way to the awards stand after placing sixth in the Class 4A girls’ 4x400-meter relay during Saturday’s OSAA track and field championships at Hayward Field in Eugene.

Emily Bever, coming off her third consecutive victory in the girls’ 800, anchored the relay to a season-best time of 4 minutes, 8.78 seconds to win the first of two heats in the finals.

In the second heat, Philomath set the pace with a winning time of 4:02.54, while Sisters, Ridgeview of Redmond, La Grande and Yamhill-Carlton all eclipsed the 4:08 mark to knock the defending-champion Indians down the podium.

Molalla freshman Rachel Bring got her first taste of the state meet after qualifying in both the shot put and the discus.

Bring finished 10th out of 14 in the shot put with a throw of 34 feet, 7 1/2 inches in the preliminaries, falling one inch short of securing a spot in the finals.

In the discus, Bring scratched her first two attempts before getting off a throw of 92-7, which put her 13th among the 14 qualifiers.

More on Brings' first trip -- and most likely not her last -- to the state meet in the June 4 edition of the Pioneer.
