LAPWAI The Clearwater Valley boys placed third as a team behind Deer Park and Troy last Saturday, March 18, and the CV girls took fourth behind three out-of-state teams.
Senior thrower Morgan Loughran scored nearly half the CV girls’ points, with her 94-1 in the discus and her 29-11½ both good for first place finishes at the meet and third place listings on the athletic.net 1A Idaho tables.
Kamiah sophomore Kati Wilkins took second in the shot put with a 28-9 and Prairie senior Madison Ulmer took fourth in the discus with an 85-7.
On the track, Prairie freshman Ciara Chaffee placed second in the girls 800 (2:45.75) and Kamiah freshman Destiny Knight placed fourth in the 200 (30.12).
CV’s medley relay of Hannah Bandle, Fallon Wilkins, Hailey Williams and Harmony Edmondson placed fourth (2:20.71).
On the boys side, CV senior Trey Pfefferkorn led the 100 with an 11.58, hand-timed.
CV senior Mika Rives went 38-3½ in the triple jump. That distance was enough to win the event last Saturday by more than two feet, yet was more than a foot shy of the personal record 39-6¼ he jumped earlier in the week at Kamiah. Rives placed second in the 300 hurdles (45.06) and third in the pole vault (11-6) at Lapwai.
Prairie junior Sean Spencer went 17-8½ for second place in the long jump, outdistancing CV senior Josh Kolb by two inches. Kolb took third in the triple jump (36-1½).
CV senior Cole Olsen placed second in the 1,600 (4:35.11) and third in 800 (2:04.74).
Prairie senior Ryan Glimp placed third with a personal record in the discus (131-5) and Kamiah junior Kaleb Oatman placed fourth in the shot put (40-6).
Prairie senior Lucas Wemhoff placed fourth in the 400 (55.54).
Kamiah’s medley relay of Brody MacCord, Caden Massey, Alfredo Gonzalez and Michael Macmenamin placed fourth (4:08.15).
At Lapwai, with 20 teams competing, top places were harder to come by than they had been earlier in the week at the Kamiah meet, which featured CV, Kamiah, Highland, Timberline and Orofino.
Still, local athletes one-upped themselves.
At Kamiah, CV’s Cole Olsen — cross-country champion this past fall — set a personal record in his first 3,200 of the season, with a hand time of 9 minutes, 48.78 seconds. Kamiah’s Kaleb Oatman set a discus PR (122-4).
KHS senior Bradley Knight, a state qualifier in the 100 and 200 the past two seasons, ran an 11.95 in the 100 and fell to an injury while leading the 200.
Coming — Prairie, CV and Kamiah are all slated to compete at Kamiah on Thursday, March 23. The Rams are due to compete March 25 at Lewiston.
