Auburn Mountainview delivered strong performances at the Oregon Relays at the University of Oregon’s storied Hayward Field last Friday and Saturday.

The Lions finished in the top 20 for combined team points and fourth among Washington teams competing. Valor Christian of Colorado won the team title.

Junior Kacey Provo took third in the pole vault, clearing 14 feet, 5¼ inches. Senior Talan Alfrey was fifth in the long jump (21-8¼) and junior Austin Cays finished sixth in the 2,000-meter steeplechase (6 minutes, 45.68 seconds).

The Lions held their own in the relays. The 400 relay of Brian Njoki, Chris Penn, Jeremiah Penn and Alfrey was sixth (43.75). Njoki, Penn, Penn and Bill Benjamin were seventh in the 800 relay (1:32.85).

Penn took second in the freshman 100 in 11.76.

For the girls, the Lions’ sprint medley relay of Anastasia Staroverova, Addyson Jones, Lily Lavine and Clara Ramsdell was seventh (4:29.67).

The meet, one of the top invitationals on the West Coast, fielded more than 140 teams from throughout the country and Canada.

“Overall we performed really well against some great competition,” said Lions coach Joel MacDougall. “The weather wasn’t great because it was a little chilly and a bit windy, which hampered some of our sprint times, but we were pretty excited about the outcome.”
