The Centennial girls track and field team top the district leader board after Day 1 of the Mount Hood Conference championships.
The Eagles totaled 45 points through Tuesday's five event finals to hold a nine-point edge over second-place Clackamas. Centennial accounted for more than half of its total with Christina Rodriguez, Jaquiah Campbell and Angel Aluesi combining for a rare 1-2-3 sweep in the javelin with Rodriguez putting out the winning throw of 122 feet on the final attempt of the day.
Later in the day, Aluesi posted the top two marks in the shot put to win a key head-to-head battle with Isabelle Paylor of Clackamas.
The Cavaliers punched back with 15 points in the 3,000-meter final at the end of the night with Alexa Hayes pulling away over the final half-mile to win in 10:56.63.
The meet resumes at 3 p.m. Wednesday with triple jump, pole vault and discus, while the 400-meter relay begins the racing finals at 5 p.m.
