Track improves on two-meet week


Raider track and field competed in two meets last week, where the team’s shot put athletes excelled, a boy and a girl.

The first was a Bi-County meet at Davenport April 21, where Octavio Alejandre picked up two first-place finishes.

In the shot, Alejandre threw 48 feet, 4.25 inches, and in discus he threw a personal record of 121 feet, 7 inches for another first-place finish.

Katelynn Schilling took first in both throwing events. At the disc, Schilling threw a PR of 98-6, and at the shot she threw 33-1 for a second first place.

“We had exciting results with our seniors topping the list in the shot and discus,” Head Coach Lori Adkins said.

And, she noted, “Sprinters continued to shave off tenths for improved times.”

The Raider boys 4x100 team of Angelo Clark, Dominic Cotton, and Matthew and Cameron Tillman took second place at Davenport with the time of 50.77 seconds.

Cotton ran a PR in the 100 in 12.13 seconds. Matthew Tillman recorded two PRs with a 12.27 time in the 100-meter dash, and a 25.97 in the 200.

The Raiders travelled to Peshastin for the Rieke Invite April 24, where Alejandre and Schilling scored all the team points for the Raiders.

Schilling took second in the shot with a throw of 33-4 and fourth in the disc at 95-2. Alejandre took second in the shot at 46-8 and fifth in the disc at 112-9.

Shania Carson threw a career PR in the discus at Peshastin with a throw of 51-10. Angelo Clark threw a PR in the javelin at 89-4.

This is another two-meet week for the Raiders. Last night LR attended the Iceberg Invite at Mansfield. On Saturday the Raiders will travel to Oroville to take part in the Draggoo Financial Invitational, starting at 11 a.m.
