Records falls at Pacers last regular season track meet

Lakeridge rounds into form heading into the district meet


by: VERN UYTETAKE - Lakeridge's Kelly O'Neill added another accomplishment to her stellar running career with the Pacers when she broke the school record in the 800 last week. The Lakeridge track team wrapped up the regular season with a big meet last week against Clackamas, Grant and West Linn.

The Pacers racked up more than their fair share of victories and appear to be in prime shape heading into the district meet this week.

For the boys, Alex Alamida continued his tear through the league, winning both the 100 and the 200 in impressive fashion.

Merrick Sanders took third in the 200 and fourth in the 400.

In the 800, Michael Walker and Colton Ansberry took second and third while Julian Heninger cruised to a victory in the 1500 by more than 10 seconds.

In the 300 hurdles, Reilly Kirk edged out Clackamas' top competitor for a win in 42.18 seconds. Cameron Clarke and Sam Reed took third and fourth in the event.

Lakeridge's 4x400 team of Sanders, Walker, Alamida and Heninger also won handily.

In the field, the Pacers' Owen Hart took second in the javelin, as did Andrew Clarke in the high jump. He and teammate Eric Dungey both cleared 5'10”.

Alec Home took third in the long jump and Micah Bartel was second in the triple jump.

For the girls, Lakeridge went 1-2 in both the 100 and the 200. Marissa Miller captured both events. She topped teammate Ranya Al-Khaledy in the 100 and edged Saskia McNairy in the 200.

In the 800, Kelly O'Neill took second, behind Grant's Ella Donaghu but her time of 2:14.65 broke the school record in the event.

Laura Suzuki won the 3000 in 11:34.79.

In the hurdles, Madi Greenleaf was terrific, winning the 100 in 15.39 and the 300 in 45.82 as she continues to come on strong after missing the first half of the season with an injury.

Lakeridge would sweep both relays as well.

In the field, Maddie Rabing won the shot put convincingly with a throw of 40'7”. She would also win the discus, leading a 1-2-3 finish by the Pacers with Gabby Quintana taking second and Annie Jahraus taking third.

Rabing and Kelsey Walker finished third and fourth in the javelin.

Maddie Moxness and Emily Pearson were second and third in the high jump while Nicole Kangas won the pole vault with a clearance of 9'6”.

McNairy took home both the long jump and triple jump with Al-Khaledy taking third in each event.

The district meet takes place today (Thursday) and Friday at the old Oregon City High School.
