Four players from Central Catholic are on this year's North roster: receiver-safety Beau Duronslet, kicker Mitch Seeley, defensive lineman Adam Canales and lineman Mitch Williams.

Jesuit and Wilson each have two players on the North. The Crusaders are represented by center Doug Brenner and offensive lineman Ryan Brown. The Trojans will have running back Cory Hincks and linebacker Zachary Wildgrube in uniform.

Other Portland area players suiting up for the North: Grant defensive back Kyrell Bishop, Lincoln quarterback John Williams, Franklin defensive lineman Jahmian Howard-Carey and David Douglas defensive end Samson Ebukam.

Halfway through the 22-game regular season, both teams are 8-2-1 and have 25 points, seven clear of the third-place Western New York Flash (5-2-3).

U.S. TRACK AND FIELD

All day — The national championships continue at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.

Among the finals: the men's and women's 1,500 meters and women's steeplechase.

Men's 1,500 finalists include Matthew Centrowitz, Andrew Wheating, Mac Fleet and Lopez Lomong.

The women's 1,500 has Mary Cain and Treniere Moser.

The women's steeplechase finals list includes locals Bridget Franek, Carrie Dimoff, Kimber Mattox and Julia Webb.

Also Saturday, NCAA sprint champion English Gardner from the University of Oregon runs in the first round of the women's 200.

In Friday's action:

English Gardner was the star, winning the 100 in a 2013 world-leading 10.85 seconds.

“I am not going to say I shocked the world, but I definitely shocked myself," she said.

Octavious Freeman of Central Florida was second in 10.87. She also placed second to Gardner in the NCAA meet.

Portland steeplechaser Evan Jager advanced to the finals with the seventh-fastest qualifying time, 8:45.45.

In the men's 800, Nick Symmonds and Oregon Track Club Elite teammate Tyler Mulder finished 1-2 in one heat to advance to Sunday's finals. Symmonds met the world championships qualifying standard with his 1:45.22. Mulder ran 1:45.24.

Elijah Greer, the NCAA champ from Lake Oswego and Oregon, also advanced, placing third in his heat in 1:45.16.

Oregon's Laura Roseler made the 800 women's final, placing fourth in her heat in a personal-best 2:00.54.

In the decathlon, Ashton Eaton was in second place after the first five of 10 events. His 4,405 points trailed Gunnar Nixon (4,449) of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Eaton was nursing some left leg tendinitis concerns and settled for only clearing two heights (6-2 3/4 best) in the high jump and making only two attempts in the long jump.

"I was trying to play it safe rather than increase the irritation," Eaton said.

In the men's 400 semifinals, Oregon's Mike Berry was disqualified for a lane violation after placing third.
