Sandy boys take home NWOC crown

Share
The Pioneers runaway with the overall team victory at the district meet

SANDY POST: MATT RAWLINGS - Dallin Thomas gets off the block in the first leg of the boys 4x100 relay on Friday.

All season long, the Sandy boys' track & field team has been dominant over NWOC competition. And that trend continued at the district meet on Thursday and Friday.

The Pioneers as a team scored 176 points and easily won the NWOC district championship. Wilsonville placed second with 112.5 points and St. Helens placed third with 97 points.

"In track and field, it's really about peaking at districts and state...It is satisfying as a coaching staff to see our boys perform the way that they did," Sandy head coach Anouxa Vixathep said. "It's really important to perform well at the district meet so that we have momentum going into the state meet."

Michael Callaway continued his reign over opposing NWOC distant runners, winning his second straight conference title in the 1500 (4:14.42) and the 3000 (9:08.46).

"It was a lot of fun to win another medal," Callaway said. "There wasn't a whole lot of competition this year...I was pretty much able to do everything according to the race plan."

Glynne McGaughey was also one of the stars of the meet on the boys side. McGaughey won the long jump while setting a personal best (21-feet-3.75-inches) and he was apart of the first place 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams. McGaughey also qualified for state by setting a PR in the 100 (11.15).
