Grangeville High School alum Megan Sullivan ran the lead leg of Eastern Oregon University’s seventh place women’s 4x400 relay at the NAIA Indoor National Track meet held last weekend in Ohio. The relay team broke the Eastern Oregon University indoor 4x400 relay record by running a 3:51.0 in the finals.
Sullivan and the relay team members received the NAIA all-American honor, as the top eight placers in all events. She also ran the open 400 sprint, placing 27th out of 31 competitors as a sophomore. The outdoor season begins in two weeks.
“Megan would like to thank all her teachers and coaches from Grangeville that helped her during her days in the Grangeville school system,” Pat Sullivan wrote.

Steelhead check: muddy water, low catch rates
Idaho Fish and Game’s recent angler surveys show catch rates vary significantly, ranging from seven hours per fish on the upper Salmon River from the Middle Fork Salmon River upstream to North Fork, to well over 100 hours per fish in other river sections.
IDFG’s March 8 steelhead harvest report (online at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/fish/?getPage=126) noted muddy water at 35 degrees from White Bird Creek to Riggins and zero keepers for 237 hours fished. The Little Salmon River and main Salmon River near Riggins continued to run higher than average at press time.
