Page 16 ra - May 30, 2012 / Track From page 11 Jake Johnson was fifth, with a best of 137-6. Those performances gave the Huskies 12 points, good for 20th place. La Pine won the champion- ship with 48 points, followed by North Valley (46), Newport (44) and Molalla (37). Devyn Makin finished fifth in the long jump, with a best of 16- 8, to round out the girls scoring, turning in one of the most consis- tent series of jumps in the field - all but one over 16. But Claire Thomas of Molal- [a, on her final jump, hit the board perfectly to soar 19-1. "Devyn, she jumped well." Snow said. "She never had a scratch. That was the best outing of her career. She was in the lead when she took her first jump but she has nothing to hang her head about. When get someone like Thomas is an inch short of the meet record, that's nothing to be ashamed of. That event got tough in our division this year." Sweet Home also got a sev- enth-place finish from its girls 4x100 relay team of seniors Makin. Jessika Stewart and Whit- field, and sophomore Courtney Kent. It was the fourth straight finals appearance in that event for the seniors. "They were consistent." Snow said of the four. "'(Assistant Coach) Jim (Kistner) and I were Chris Carpenter waits to take the baton from Trever Olson in the boys long relay. talking about it. They were con- sistent, very consistent, with what they were able to do. Not too many schools, and certainly not us. can say they've placed four years in the state meet in that event. "That was fun to see for those girls. They really had a lot invest- ed in that emotionally." That finish, along with the three individuals, pushed the Hus- ky girls much farther than Snow said coaches expected. "We had them pegged" origi- nally at 13 points and we scored 22." he said." Nicole Ramussen, who has been struggling with back prob- lems this season, finished 10th in the 3000, in 11:15.57. It was evi- dent early on that it was going to be a long race for the sophomore. "She came past the finish line after 200 meters and I knew something wasn't right," Snow said. "For her to run that time with the back like that. she tried and she tried." In the boys 3000, Jakob Hiett, the only freshman to make state in the distances, was 10th in 9:22.67 while junior Daniel Danforth fin- ished'13th, in 9:52.83. Hiett was 12th in the 1500. in 4:17.00. "We told Jakob, 'Hey, just go race, put your nose in there and see what happens," Snow said. "He PR'd in the 3000, and was three-tenths of a second off his PR in the 1500. That's a tough double for any- body. For Jakob to go out there to do what he did, that's a real. spe- cial talent." The boys short relay team of Spencer Knight, Hall. Kyler Gas- key and Chris Carpenter finished ninth in Friday's prelim, running 45.03, to miss the eight-team final by one spot. The 4x400 relay team of Car- penter, Hall, Trever Olson and Scottie Stockman, was 10th in Friday's prelim, in 3:33.54. "Unfortunately, for the guys, they didn't have their best days and best times when they needed it." Snow said. "For the short re- lay, the opening was there to get FORM ED-1 NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARING A public meeting of the Sweet Home School District will be held on June 11, 2012 at 7 p.m. at 1920 Long Street, Sweet Home, Oregon.

"The long relay was the same thing. They ran their guts out. but they just didn't have it that day. 3:30 is what it takes just about ev- ery year. But we had three guys on there hadn't run it before this year." Hall, the lone veteran on the team, said that, though they didn't make the final, it was good experi- ence. "It gave the seniors a chance to go out with a boom andit gave the new guys a chance to run on that track," he said. Annie Whitfield's father Randy Whitfield, a former state javelin champion himself and her coach throughout her career thus far, said her win in her fourth trip to state was the realization of a goal they had set "a long time ago." "I thought it would just be a great cap to her career as a high school javelin thrower," he said. "The competition looked pretty tough going in. I talked to her about rising to the occasion." He said the plan was for An- nie to throw a big one. "a shot across the bow," early on, but that didn't work out too well after Ka- cie Hargett of Newport opened with a shot of 135-2, five feet far- ther than his daughter's opening throw. Still trailing Hargett by that margin after the three preliminary throws, the Whitfields had a chat before finals. "I told her that these were the last three throws of her high school career," Randy Whitfield said. "She went out there and threw big ones." Bailey Bars of Hidden Val- ley, who was lurking just behind the two leaders, threw 131-10 on her second attempt in the finals and that got Annie Whitfield go- ing, she said. She responded with a throw of 141-2. "As soon as that girl threw farther than me, that's when it clicked," she said, adding that she had a little trouble getting every-" thing in synch in front of the big crowd at Hayward. "It was the pressure of the big meet, to be honest," she said. "It's definitely a lot harder when you're at state and you have all those people around you." Whitfield then followed that up with her best of the day, 141- 11, to win going away. "It was pretty cool," Randy Whitfield said. "Track and field is a personal thing. I think you al- Photo by Scoff Swanson tough 3000. ways have to control it and do the best you can with it. She didn't hold anything back." In the shot put, Corliss got off to a decent start, nailing a PR on her final throw of prelims to win her flight with a 36-1. Assistant Coach Krystal Streight suggested Corliss do a couple of sprints back and forth next to the shot put venue before her throws. Corliss responded with her big throw. 37-2,,in the second round of the finals. "I'm not sure what it was. ex- actly," she said. "I got some good hip motion on that one. "To be honest, I didn't even think l would make the finals, since I came in throwing only 34 and a half, The other girls were throwing 36's. "When (Assistant Coach) Andrew (Allen) asked me what my goal was, I said 'over 36.' He said, 'Your goal should be just to make the final. '" Corliss said she was motivat- ed by the example of Streight, the school record-holder at 40-9, set as a senior in 2005. "Coach Krystal told me that if I was throwing 35 by my sopho- more year, 1 would be where she was. I'm excited." So was Snow. "Jade, what a day," he said. "She was so nervous on the bus, on the way there. We said, 'Just go out there and throw. "With a kid brand new to it, you just hope they get down there and get their feet wet. She went down and won her flight. Only two throwers made improvements in the finals. One was Jade. That was just huge for that girl." Johnson, who failed to place last year as a junior, was focused on getting on the medals stand this year and although his big throw of 137-11, which got him into the fi- nals, was less than he was hoping for, he said the state meet pressure helped him in the end. "It's the big one and the last one," he said. "If everything was clicking I think I can throw in the 150s.'" Snow noted that Johnson has become "a solid thr()wer" this year. "It was a good followup to what he did last year," he said, referring to Johnson's failure to make the finals as a junior in his first state meet. "The same thing could have happened but it didn't."
