Scappoose track athletes break school records
Scappoose track athletes have broken multiple school records this season.
Senior Colin Stoddard set a new school record with a 14-foot-1 pole vault at an April 15 meet, edging out the previous record holder, Jonnie Clark, by just an inch.
Stoddard said the record was "something I've worked hard for, so for it to finally pay off is a dream come true."
Sophomore Megan Earl pushed to first in girls javelin, with a 120-foot-3 throw. Christina Hickman had set the school record in 2008 with a 115-foot-5 throw.
Multiple other Scappoose track and field athletes ran, threw and jumped to spots in the top 10 school records.
Sophomore Alice Davidson may have made one of the top girls 100-meter records at a March 30 meet, but her potentially record-breaking run couldn't be confirmed because of timing issues, coach Dennis Olstedt said.
Senior Rowen Suchoski took second in both the 1,500-meter and 300-meter races, just missing the records set in both events by John Kavulich in 2018. Suchoski set both second-place records at the Nike/Jesuit Twilight Relays in late April.
The Northwest Oregon Conference district meet takes place Thursday, May 12, and Friday, May 13.
