Camas dominates on first day of 1A track

Carey girls’ medley grabs the gold

Most of the bragging rights belonged to the Camas County Mushers from Fairfield on the first day of the state-qualifying 4th District 1A prep track and field meet Wednesday after-noon at Jerome High School.

But the Carey School girls' sprint medley relay team had its own moment in the warm Magic Valley sun with a thrill-ing victory over Castleford. It was Carey's only gold medal of the first day of competition.

The 800-meter medley team of Angelica Zarate, Lilly Riv-era, McKayla Mecham and Mi-caela Adamson (1:58.44) had the second-fastest 1A medley time of the year in Idaho to nip Cas-tleford (1:58.94) at the finish.

Carey's Jack Cenarrusa (3rd high jump 5-8), Charlie Rivera (4th triple jump 40-0.5) and Jaide Parke (3rd 3200-meter run in 12:51.14) qualified for state.

The Camas boys won all three of the field event finals and got a 1-2 finish by Bryan John 10:39.74 and Airik Dono-hoe in the 3200-meter run to grab a 63-38 lead over Hager-man in the 12-team boys' ranks.

Winning their events were Mushers Andrew Simon (1st high jump 5-10), Carlos Robles (1st triple jump 40-7.25 season-best) and Jordan Robles (1st shotput 44-7 season-best).

Camas four-event contender Katelyn Peterson won the long jump by nearly eight inches with a leap of 16-9 that was the best 1A jump so far this spring. Richfield's Sasha Kent (11:55.54) also had a 1A state-best in winning the 3200m.
