PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP PHOTO: PHIL HAWKINS - Evan Rasor (far right) was one of the top finishers in the 100-, 200-, and 400- meter dashes. Eugene—If you were Colton senior Evan Rasor on Thursday and Friday, May 17 and 18, you were feeling pretty dang good. While the talented sprinter did not grab the top spots in his races, he did manage to place in the top three in all of them.

In the 100-meter dash, Rasor finished fifth overall in the preliminary heats with a time of 11.38 seconds. He improved upon that in the finals, taking third with a time of 11.11 seconds, a new personal best. Only Juma Sei of Catlin Gabel and Wilson McLean of Salem Academy were faster, each of them posting personal bests.

In the 200-meter race, Rasor would again battle with Sei for the top spot, and again come up just short. In the preliminary heats, Rasor was just behind Sei in second place with a time 22.67 seconds. In the finals Rasor and Sei held their positions, and the Colton senior took the silver with a time of 22.74 seconds.

In the 400-meter dash, Rasor again made the finals after placing fifth in the prelims. Once there, he took third place behind Sei and Demorisean Pennington on Portland Christian, finishing with a time of 50.48 seconds, a season best.
