McShane takes two at state track championships

EUGENE -- Lindsay McShane's experience at the OSAA State Track and Field Championships may not have been perfect, but it was her personal best.

The Amity sophomore won Class 3A state titles in the girls' shot put (39 feet, 11.5 inches) and discus throw (125-1), setting personal records in both events. For good measure, she added a fourth-place finish in the girls' javelin with a throw of 122-11 -- also a personal-best mark.

The Dayton girls finished with 36 team points, taking home a fourth-place trophy in the process.

Dayton senior Sydney Mohler scored points for the Pirates in four events. Mohler finished second in the 3A girls' long jump with a mark of 17 feet, 1 inch; she was the reigning state champion in that event. Mohler also finished fourth in the 3A girls' 100-meter hurdles (16.28 seconds) and sixth in the 3A girls' 300-meter hurdles (48.79); she ran a leg of the 3A girls' 4x400-meter relay with Nancy Arroyo, Mireya Vazquez and Katey Harris, which finished eighth in 4:18.20.

Pirates junior Maddie Shirley scored points in all three throwing events, taking third in the discus throw (115-6), third in the shot put (36-0.25) sixth in the javelin throw (114-5).

Dayton senior Kevin Castillo finished sixth in the 3A boys' shot put with a throw of 44-3.

Harris scored points for the Pirates in the 3A girls' 1,500 (5:10.45, eighth) and the 3A girls' 3,000 (11:24.06, sixth).

The Amity boys' 4x400-meter relay team of Ryan Kraemer, D.J. Trunde, Ryan Moore and Jordan Butler finished eighth in 3:38.15. Butler added a seventh-place finish in the 3A boys' 400 (54.07).

The 3A boys' high jump provided some fireworks as Sheridan junior Jacob Hertel and Amity sophomore Lance Nelson finished sixth and seventh, respectively. Both recorded heights of 6-10 but placement was decided due to misses.

In the 3A girls' high jump, Willamina sophomore Kasey Anderson cleared 5 feet, 1 inch to capture second place and eight team points. Sheridan junior Mackenzie Hall tied for third place in the 3A girls' high jump with a height of 5-0.

Spartans junior Peyton James scored one team point for his eighth-place finish in the pole vault. James cleared 11-6 but took eighth due to misses.

Willamina junior Riley Boardman recorded four points for the Bulldog boys with a fifth-place finish in the 3A boys' discus throw (139-2).
