CONDON – Despite inclement weather, the Dayville High School Tigers did well at the Condon Invitational track meet on Saturday, April 2.
“It was snowing for most of the meet,” said Dayville track and field coach Peter Bogardus.
The Tiger girls, with four athletes competing, ranked 11th overall.
Senior Shyanne Winters took second place in the javelin with a throw of 100-11. She is ranked No. 6 for Oregon 1A athletes.
Freshman Renee Inscore placed fifth in both the 1,500 meters and in the javelin. She tied for 11th in the 100 meters.
Alix Perkins, also a freshman, long jumped to a sixth-place finish. Sophomore Daryl Ann Waltenburg showed versatility, running for eighth place in the 1,500 meters, and throwing for 14th in the discus event.
The Tiger boys ranked 15th overall, with six athletes at the meet.
Justin Larson, a junior, ran for fifth place in the 100 meters, and threw the javelin 121-07 for ninth place. He also placed 11th in the long jump.
The combined force of seniors Dustin Gibson and Ed Ellson, and juniors Josh Chapman and Toby Yazzie, placed fifth in the 4x100 relay. “That was one of the most fun events,” said Bogardus, who noted that Dayville hasn’t often run a relay due to the small number of athletes.
In other individual events, Chapman long jumped for 9th place; Ellson ran for 15th in the 200 meters, and placed 17th in the long jump.
Gibson placed 17th in the 100 meters. Sophomore Boris Nachbauer placed 21st in the same event. He also threw the javelin for 22nd.
The Tiger track and field team was due to compete Tuesday, April 5, in the Grant Union Small Schools Meet. Results were unavailable at the Eagle’s presstime.
