The unpredictable weather is of- ten a challenge during the decathlon and heptathlon, with snow flurries, rain and hail common. This year, though, it was worse than normal, as a heavy downpour most of Friday dropped nearly 2 inches of rain on Sweet Home, which, with accom- panying east winds, prompted meet officials to cancel the pole vault, scheduled for Saturday. Sweet Home Coach Billy Snow, who is the event host, said he couldn't remember having to ever actually cancel an event, though he did recall holding off on the high jump due to lightning. "In hindsight, we could .have gotten the pole vault in, but they weren't off on their predictions," he said.+"A few of the kids were unhap- py but I think most understood." "Those kids who were out there for both days, especially the first day, they were to be congratulated. They didn't have to be out there and they were working hard. The kids just had a blast, out there cheering each oth- er on. During the high jump, it was pouring rain and dumping buckets of water. They were cheering each other. It was just fun. "I was impressed." So was Sweet Home assistant Also competing were Sweet Home alumni Jake Comstock and Alex Santana, who finished fifth (4184) and sixth (3511). Comstock, a 2010 gra& and Santana, who fin- ished his high school career last year. Santana scratched on all three of his long jump attempts, winding up with zero points in that event, which should have been one of his stron- gest, after placing fifth in the 100. The only current Huskies who coach Jim Kistner, a veteran track- finished were seniors Jake Johnson coach. "These are the true athletes," he said as he watched the heptathlon competitors high jump in a down- pour Friday, while the decathletes competed in the long jumP and the shot put. "They're not complaining. They're just doing it." Delgado, a junior, scored 5364 points for the nine events, with Roy- al Black of Southridge, also a junior, second with 4557. Senior Zach Trask of Philomath was a close third, fin- ishing with 4475. and Dakota Snow, who ended up far down in the pack. Freshman An- thony Vincent completed most of the first day's events, Jake Johnson won the discus on his third try, after scratching his first two throws, to edge Crow's Tan- ner Eastlick by seven inches with a throw of 126-3.

Thomas, a junior, won the hur- dles (16.23), the long jump (16-6), the 800 (2:32.42) and the 200 (25.85) en route to scoring 3728 points. Lebanon senior Kara Halleck won the high jump (4-11) and placed second behind Thomas in the 200 (28.10), the 100 hurdles (16.73). the long jump (16-1 3/4) and also placed second in the shot put (27-1) to finish with 3661 points. Snow Said he thought the condi- tions may have affected some times and marks, but his owrr son Dakota got a couple of personal bests in events. "There were some preay im- pressive times and marks," he said. "We got to see some pretty impres- sive athletes. That girl from Molalla nd Kara Halleck of Lebanon are two of the toughest girls in the state and Joe Delgado and Royal Black had some great performances. "I was expecting, on Day 2, half those kids not to show UP. They all did. I don't think we were missing more than four Or five guys and one girl on Saturday." The Huskies' regular track sea- son resumes Wednesday, April 4, at Philomath in a three-way meet with Cottage Grove at 4 p.m., followed by the Junction City Invitational Satur- day, which includes most of the mid- valley 4A teams, along with Crook County, South Umpqua and Siuslaw, and Toledo and Alsea from the lower divisions.
