Track improves at Colville


Two Raiders placed at the Ezra Gordon Invitational last Saturday in Colville, and many others showed positive improvements.

Two Lake Roosevelt shot put throwers laid their claims to podiums in the meet, one girl and one boy.

Octavio Alejandre took home first place in the shot, throwing 46 feet, 9 inches, an improvement of 8 inches over his throw last week. In the discus, Alejandre did not place but threw 108-11.

Katelynn Schilling took home third in the shot, throwing 32-5.5, five inches better that last week.

“Athletes continued to improve their times and distances at the Colville meet,” Head Coach Lori Adkins said. “All in all, the Raiders had a successful day.”

Nathaniel Hall ran the 100 and 200 meter races. In the 100, Hall ran a 12.2-second race, seven-tenths of a second off his personal record. Hall ran a 25.4-second 200.

Lake Roosevelt fielded a 4x100-meter relay team at Colville. The team of Hall, Dominic Cotton, and Cameron and Matthew Tillman finished 10th overall in 49.03 seconds, considered a good starting point for a relay team to be competitive in the coming weeks.

This week, the Raiders are scheduled compete in two meets. Last night in Tonasket, the Raiders were to take part in a Central Washington B League meet with Tonasket and Waterville. Omak was also scheduled to compete. Friday the Raiders travel to the Deer Park invite. The meet will feature the entire Northeast 1A League, the Bi-County and many Panorama schools. The Raiders and Oroville represent the Central Washington B League. Events start at noon at Deer Park High School.
