In a very competitive meet, the Camas County Mushers from Fairfield maintained their supremacy in the Northside Conference Championship track and field meet on a sunny, cool Wednesday at the Derrick Parke Memorial Field oval in Carey.
Piling up 97 of their 179.5 points in the field events, the Camas girls led by senior Stephanie Moore won their seventh consecutive Northside Conference title by a mere seven points over the host Carey girls (172.5). Camas and Carey girls accounted for 13 of the 17 gold medals at the nine-school meet.
Top individual girls’ point-getter Moore (35.5 points) won the 100-meter high hurdles, long jump and triple jump as her junior teammate Taylor Gorringe captured the shotput and discus.
Carey’s girls out-paced Camas 8-5 in the gold medal count led by the 800m/1600m/3200m distance sweep of senior Jaide Parke. Carey’s other golds: Senior McKayla Mecham in the 200m dash and freshman Medin Cenarrusa in the 300m intermediate hurdles, to go with 4x100m, 4x200m and medley relays.
In addition, Community School sophomore Sydney Hagenbuch captured the 400m dash by nearly four seconds.
The boys’ team race was incredibly close with the Camas boys (50 field points) earning their third Northside crown in four years by the slimmest of margins—105 to 104.5 over the Castleford Wolves (29.5 sprint points).
Senior Jordan Robles (discus) and sophomore Isaac Simon (high jump) were the Camas gold medalists. Carey’s boys won the 4x100m and 4x200m relays along with senior Francisco Gamino’s shotput gold to place third with 95 points.
Dietrich wound up with four gold medals—senior Logan Porter winning the 400m dash and junior Jacob Dalton the 1600m run to go with 4x400m and sprint medley wins—giving the Blue Devils fourth place with 87 points.
Otherwise, the top boys’ prizes were spread around.
Lighthouse Christian senior Eli Berndt was the top individual point-getter with 38 points based on golds in long and triple jumps, and the 200m dash, plus second place in the 100m dash.
Castleford senior Logan Rector swept the hurdles races, and Murtaugh senior Troy Baynes won the 800m and 3200m to go along with his second place in the 1600m.
Next up: The state-qualifying 4th District 1A meet Friday and Saturday, May 10-11 at Jerome High School.
