Track teams battle Cavs, Cougars in first league meet

The Lions win their share of events against two deep squads


The West Linn track teams opened up their league schedule last week at home against Clackamas and Canby, turning in some strong performances against very good competition.

For the girls, Juliana Guthner was second in both the 200 and the 400 behind Clackamas standout Skylee Doman. Guthner finished the 200 in 28.22 seconds and the 400 in 1:03.62. Isabella Reichner was third in the 400.

Freshman Johanna Briscoe was dominant in the distance events. She won the 1500 in 5:05.97, topping her closest competitor by nearly 20 seconds and she also cruised to a win in the 3000 in 11:08, winning that event by more than 50 seconds.

In the 100 hurdles, Diana Swanson and Jenny Reynolds took second and third respectively, finishing just five hundredths of a second apart. Swanson would then take third in the 300 hurdles as well.

In the field, freshman Meghan Carbiener captured the discus convincingly with a throw of more than 98 feet while fellow freshman Katlyn Dzwilewski was third in the shot put.

Emily Rissberger took third in the high jump with a clearance of 4'8” and was second in the long jump while Elle Dyrdahl was third in the triple jump.

For the boys, Connor Kelly and Zac Woodworth finished second and third in the 400.

Unsurprisingly, West Linn racked up many of its points in the distance events. Grayson Ollar finished a close second in the 800 and the 1500. His brother Roman captured the 1500 in 4:12.73 and would also win the 3000 in 9:20.12.

The Lions also tallied a strong 1-2 finish in the 110 hurdles. Tristan Stallcup won the event handily in 15.7 seconds, nearly setting a PR, while Ryan Kelly finished second.

Stallcup would also win the 300 hurdles in 42.37 seconds.

West Linn picked up some big wins in the field as well, winning all three throwing events.

Isaiah Molden captured the shot put, topping 42 feet with his best effort. Gavin Anderson won the discus easily with a best-throw of nearly 131 feet and Garrett Keizur would win the javelin with a toss of 160'11”.

Troy Carver leapt 20'3” in the long jump to win that event by 10 inches. He would also take home the triple jump with a mark of just over 40 feet.

Next up for the Lions is the Wilsonville Invitational Saturday and another home meet against Lake Oswego next Wednesday.
