Rain clears out for Oroville invite

Tigers, Hornets gear up for post-season

OROVILLE – A monsoon-like deluge delayed the start of Saturday’s Draggoo Financial Oroville Invitational, but once the rain was finished, the weather cooperated on about as nice a day as one could hope for at a spring track meet.

That translated into a lot of personal bests for quite a few athletes, though a number of squads were depleted by illness and other conflicts.

“The meet went alright after the rain delay,” said Oroville coach Harold Jensen. “Sierra Speiker broke her own meet (3200 meter) record by 35 seconds … It was a smaller meet with many PRs and places.”

Speiker battled Cascade’s Erin Mullins for the first five laps of the eight-lap 3200 before pulling away to a 15 second victory in 10:56.32.

Luke Kindred beat his personal best in the javelin with a throw of 163-0. Speiker also won the 1600, while Kaitlyn Grunst claimed the high jump.

As a team the Hornet girls finished fourth out of 14 scoring squads, while the boys were ninth.

Tonasket’s winners included Ryan Rylie in the 400, Ethan Bensing in the triple jump, Cassie Spear in the 400 (with a PR of 1:01.78 after missing two weeks due to illness), Kathryn Cleman in the pole vault and Rose Walts in the 100 hurdles and triple jump. Tonasket’s relay of Cleman, Spear, Walts and Kylie Dellinger also cruised to victory in the 4×100 and Cleman, Dellinger, Spear and Jaden Vugteveen won the 4×400.

“We are looking good going into the big meets,” said Tonasket coach Bob Thornton. “Everybody is improving and should be peaking at the right time. There are going to be some exciting races the next few weeks and I am looking forward to how we do.”

Tonasket hosts the Caribou Trail League finals meet this Friday, May 9, beginning at 4:00 p.m. while the Hornets travel to Liberty Bell.
