;1],  r,, - April 1 1,20! 2 Page 1 7 ,.00PORTS Young Huskies make marks a E Junction City track Sweet Home finally got a qual- ity day on the track, weather-wise, and the Huskies took full advan- tage of it in the 10-team Junction City Invitational Saturday. The somewhat shorthanded Huskies placed fourth in both the boys and girls competitions, which were won by Siuslaw on the boys side, and Crook County for the girls. The meet is scored under the Wisconsin system, which allows up to three entrants from each team and everyone scores, unlike nor- mal scoring where only the top six or eight competitors get points. Sweet Home's boys scored 798 points, to Siuslaw's 976, and behind Crook County (867.5) and Elmira (819.5), while the girls scored 695.5, behind Crook Coun- ty (915.5), Elmira (823.5) and Siuslaw (819.5). "We were very happy," Coach Billy Snow said. "I think if we'd had all our guys and girls that we were missing, I don't know if we would have caught the first-place teams but we certainly would have been closer." Snow said he figured out that the Huskies notched persona! "or season's best marks or times in 67 percent of their performances. "Any time you get over 50, that's good," he said. Winners for the boys were Nick Hall in-the 400 (52.44) and the. 300 Hurdles (42.53), Jake Johnson in the discus (139-9), and sophomore Ashton Stuzmanin the high jump (5-9). "That's not a state-quality mark for Ashton yet, but for that meet, on that day, it was a com- petitive mark," Snow said. "He just got out thereand competed." For the girls, sophomore Courtney Kent won the 400 (1:05.81) and placed second in the 300 hurdles (53.50), her second time in the hurdles event. Nicole Rasmussen, also a sophomore, won the 3000 (11:25.93) and was third in the 1500. Annie Whitfield won the javelin (l 41- l) and Devyn Makin was first in the long jump (17-2 1/2). "Amy's in the top 10 statewide with that throw (not just the 4A) and Devyn had a great series in the long jump," Snow said. "In our di- vision, the top two javelin throwers in the state are from our league," he added, referring to Cottage Grove's Zach Borrelli (see below). He said Whitfield had "a great day," placing fourth in the shot put in her first competition of the year in that event, with a throw of 32-2, and running an "awesome" leg in the girls short relay. Other notable efforts for the boys were David Skeen's fourth- place finish in the javelin with a throw of 143-2, a 23-foot PR, Nick Mattson's 9-foot pole vault in his second competition in that event, Chris Carpenter's third- place finish in the long jump with a nearly 2-foot PR, 20-6 1/2, and Daniel Danforth's fourth-place fin- ish in the 1500, in a 6-second PR of 4:19.79 and third place in the 3000 in 9:32.53, less than a second off his lifetime best. Brycen Mitten jumped 36-3 in the triple jump to break into the top 10 among Sweet Home freshmen. "We had a good day in the jav- elin," Snow said. "That was a big PR for Chris. Daniel showed he's not afraid to go out, though I'd like him to wait a little longer. That was a good double for him. And I think Brycen Mitten has found his event." He noted that with regular 4xl00 relay member Spencer Knight out, Chase Hutchins filled in competently at the last minute and, despite a rough handoff, the team ran a respectable time. "With a good handoff, they could have gone a second faster," he said. For the girls, freshman India Porter bettered her initial best by a second and a half in the 400 to finish third (66.34) in her second high school race at that distance, and fellow freshman Jordan Mill- er slashed 10 seconds off her best at 800 meters, finishing third in 2:41.25. Snow said that despite its youth, his team is showing resil- ience that promises good things for the future. "They're not afraid to go after it," he said. "Two things we saw, the kids were at or near their best and they were also competitive. The weather was a factor in some of their performances. It wasn't ideal, but it certainly wasn't what we've been having. "We were missing a bunch of bodies but the kids we had com5 peted very well. "A lot of them are younger kids. We've got a good core to build around."
