Page16 pT   " - May 2, 2012 Whitfield, Johns()n lead Huskies at MOC Annie Whitfield was the lone ,winner for the Sweet Home track teams Saturday at the Meet of Champions, but some other Hus- kies put o n a good show. Whitfield got off one "decent" throw in the javelin, Snow said, 132-2, but it was enough to hold off the rest of the field and defend her MOC title. The meet. held at Willamette University, featured some of the top 1A through 4A division athletes in Oregon, from 54 schools. "It was a good meet and I thought we had a pretty good day," said Coach Billy Snow. who is one of the organizers. "The meet,went well and that's always good when you put it on. "We had a lot of PRs and the ones that weren't PRs were stink- ing close. We had some big races by kids." Among the top performances were Jake Johnson's second place in the discus with a throw of 147- 9, a 7-foot PR and only 6 feet off Matt Slauson's school record, set in 2003 and good for fourth in the state 4A rankings as of Monday. Freshmen India Porter, in the 400 (1:04.80) and Jordan Miller in the 800 (2:34.06) got a taste of the big time and responded with per- sonal bests of a second and a half and four seconds, respectively. Nic01e Rasmussen post- ed a 16-second PR in the 3000 (11:08.02) but finished second be- hind Scappoose's Tia Carnahan af- ter Carnahan built up too big of a lead and Rasmussen. despite a furi- ous kick at the end, coudln't catch her, losing by three seconds. Freshman Jakob Hiett post- ed an 8-second PR in the 1500 (4:16.70) and Daniel Danforth posted his own 8-second personal best in the 3000 (9:25.05) as both- finished eighth. Other PRs came from Chace Hutchins in the 300 hurdles (46.09) and Nick Hall in the 800 (2:01.08), a three-second personal best in his third race at that distance this sea- son. "It was a good meet. I thought we had a pretty good day," Snow said. This week the Huskies host the entire Sky-Em League with the exception of Junction City on Wednesday at 4 p.m.. then travel to Lebanon Friday for the Rob Allen Invitational on the Warriors' brand new track, a meet that will bring to- gether 6A teams North Salem and Sprague. 5A schools Bend.
