A decisive final push helped the La Grande girls earn a top-10 finish Saturday at the OSAA 4A state track and field championships.

In the final race of the weekend, the 4-by-400 meter relay team ran a team-best time of 4 minutes, 6.68 seconds to claim fourth place. As a result, the Tigers finished with 26 team points to finish 10th Saturday at Hayward Field in Eugene.

“We haven’t been on the podium for years in the relay,” La Grande head coach Julie Bodfish said. “I believe they broke the school record by three seconds, so that was awesome.”

For Ally Tsiatsos, who reached the podium for the first time in her four years at state, it was an ideal ending for her career.

“It’s a great feeling just to stand up there,” Tsiatsos said. “Even though we didn’t get first we all ran our hearts out.”

It was an emotional moment for the senior Tsiatsos, who got to share it with fellow senior Jasmine Smith and juniors Amanda Welch and Cassandra Brownell.
