The Gene Hughes Track Meet is always one of the first meets of the year. Many times the athletes dodge snowflakes and the cold to compete. This year the weather cooperated for much of the day before a deluge hit the Corvallis track near the end of the meet. Thirteen teams participated in the event with the Frenchtown boys and the Corvallis girls winning the team competition.

Corvallis’ Lakyn Connors was a triple winner, taking the girls long jump, triple jump and the 100 hurdles. The Blue Devils also flexed their muscles in the girls’ distance races. Isabella Pape won both races with teammates Sadi Henderson, Kacie Stewart and Ayden Eickhoff coming in right behind her.

The Florence girls 400-relay team came from behind to defeat the Blue Devils. Tess Porch took the baton about a second behind Corvallis’ anchor but caught her at the tape to take the win.

Anthony Schmalz of Hamilton was a double winner in the distance races. He and teammate Easton Albert finished first and second in both the 1,600 and the 3,200 races.

Kyle Ball of Victor won the javelin with a throw of 173-9. He also won the javelin at the Jim Johnson Track Meet in Missoula on Friday with a throw of 165-7. He also won the 200 and the triple jump in that meet.
