1t, e, ra - September 26, 2012 Page 1 7 SPORTS Two Huskies finish well at Seaside Sweet Home's inexperienced cross-country team didn't quite make the impact the Huskies usu- ally do at the 3 Course Challenge at Camp Rilea, north of Seaside Saturday, but two runners finished high in the standings. Paige Sanders was 27th out of 389 runners, and fifth in Sweet Home's division, in the girls mod- erate (5000-meter) race, and Jakob Hiett was 31 st out of 513 runners in the boys difficult (5000-meter) race, finishing seventh in his divi- sion. This year's races involved some 3,000 runners from 53 Or- egon high schools and 39 from Washington, along with Hunting- ton Beach Edison from Southern California and Punahou from Ha- waii. "The kids had fun," Coach Billy Snow said. "I thought we had a good meet. We came away pretty unscathed." Hailey Hummer, who is bat- tling some tendonitis, is the only runner with an injury serious enough to force her to cut down on her running, Snow said. This week the Huskies will head to Cottage Grove Thursday for the Harrier's Challenge, which includes a run up the face of the dam at Schwarz Park and will be the first meet this season to include all six Sky-Em teams. "We haven't run an easy course yet," Snow said. "People can run up this one but it's not flat. I told the kids that this will be our last hard course. After that they get flatter and faster and we can see where we' re at.

All five regular divisions were on the night's card which included the DirtCar Super Late Models, USRA Modifieds, Sports- man, Classic Sportsman, and Mini Trucks. Pete Haag of Alvadore man- aged to earn his second Mini Truck main event win of the season. It marked his second consecutive visit to victory lane as he domi- nated the race, once he obtained the lead. Mark Vonsild of Scio crossed the line in second, followed by Jefferson drivers Jennifer Robbins in third and Shane Stuil in fourth. Pete Haag was quickest in quali- fying at a time of 19.936 seconds and also earning the trophy dash victory while the winner of the heat race was Vonsild. Vonsild, at the end of the night earned the season championship as Danny Altom donated his truck for the final race of the year so it all would be made possible. In the Classic Sportsman's division, David Cron k of Portland and Lebanon's Justin Evans put on a terrific race in their main event. The battle was settled as the two raced to the yellow flag on lap 20, in which Cronk gained the lead. Cronk went on to winthe race and earn his second consecutive win in the classification. Justin Evans earned a re- spectable second place finish while Kyle Yeack of Crawfords- ville was third. The fourth-place finisher was Randy Jackson from Salem and Sean Cronk of Portland crossed the line fifth. David Cronk earned the clean sweep as was fast time, at 17.580 seconds, Won the Crocker Cars Classic Trophy Dash as well as the heat race. Casey Vantruss of Sisters was the other heat race winner and when it was all said and done, Yeack earned his second straight Classic Sportsman track championship. Albany's Brian Smith was dominant for the most part in the Sportsman feature that is once he obtained the lead. Smith gained the lead on lap seven and led the field for the rest of the way to earn the win for car owner Glen Hack- ney. The victory marked Smith's fifth victory of the year, tying Danny Altom of Lebanon for most wins of the year. James Slover from Sweet Home was the runner-up and Bri- an Winkler of Newberg was third. Casey Rhoades from Lebanon was the fourth place finisher and wrap- ping up the top five placers was Springfield's Tim Archer in fifth. Quickest in qualifying was Brian Smith, who was also the tro- phy dash winner, while the victors in the heats were Loren Kruesi of Jefferson, Albany's-Austin Gor- ham, and Winkler. Kruesi was the winner of the consolation event and Danny Altom was crowned the champion for his first-ever Sports- man title. It was an emotional scene in victory lane after the USRA Modi- fied main was completed. Young Brody Pompe, who was involved in a horrific automobile accident a month before, which required him to be hospitalized, earned his first career win in the class in only his second race back. The Philomath driver managed to keep all chal- lengers in check and hold on for the win. Yeack was able to hold on to second place in the end, while Craig Cassell managed to place third. Jeremy Shank of Salem crossed the line in the fourth po- sition and the balance of the top five was completed with Albany's Craig Hanson fifth. Shank earned fast time honors with clocking in at 16.065, Hanson was the dash winners, and earning wins in the heat races were Robert Jeffers of Halsey and Justin Ev- ans. Bend's Rob Mayea looked to be the car to beat in the early goings of the DirtCar Super Late Model action. With a 30-lap-plus green flag run, Cody Sell of Shedd hunted-Mayea down and passed him on lap 17. Sell would master traffic and earn the victory for his first win of 2012. Jeremy Shank finished second and Trevor Glaser of Tangent was third at the line. John Campos of Keizer came home fourth while Rob Mayea ended the night in fifth. Glaser was fast time in qual- ifying at 14.341 seconds, Shank earned the trophy dash win, and the heat race winners were Bruce Hippie of Salem, Lebanon's Tony Brakeall, John Campos, and Rick Wyatt from Aumsville.
