JOSEPH'S MILLER BEATS FASTEST 1A SRPINTER IN THE STATE BY .002

BOARDMAN — The Joseph boys and the Wallowa girls each finished second at the Morrow County Invitational Track Meet Friday.

The 18-team meet featured several local winners.

The most exciting win of the day was by Joseph's Licia Miller in the 100-meter dash.

Miller won the race in 12.711, just off her best time ever. However, what's really significant about this race is that she beat Diana McElligott of Ione, who has the fastest 1A 100-meter time in the state at 12.6.

The timers had to go to three decimal points to declare a winner. Miller beat McElligott by just .002 of a second. It's very possible these two will meet again at the state championship 100-meter run.

Miller also won the pole vault at 8 feet, 6 inches.

Wallowa's Hayley Oveson won the 1,500-meter run in a time of 5:08.36, while Imbler's Tiffany Rasmussen won the javelin with a throw of 134-3, good for a local best, and a possible No. 1 throw in the state. At last report, the top 1A girls' throw in the state had been a 133-foot effort by Nicole Jones of Lifegate Christian.

Rasmussen was also second in the discus with a throw of 108-4.

The Joseph 4 x 400 team won with a time of 4:17.54, just edging out Wallowa, which ran a 4:20.31.

The Wallowa girls had 80 team points to Sherman County's 105.

For the boys, Union's Ben Williamson and Derek Kirby had great days.

Williamson won the high jump at 6-2, beating Joseph's Cole Lathrop, who has the best 1A jump in the state so far this year. Lathrop also jumped 6-2, but officially came in second.

Williamson also won the 110-meter hurdles in 16.82.

Kirby didn't win the shot put, but he had an effort of 45-2 1/4, a personal best, and the best local mark of the season. Kirby and Joseph's Mike Marks have been trading the best local shot put marks back and forth all season.

Marks, the top discus thrower in the state at the moment, did win the discus with an effort of 140-8 1/2.

Imbler's John Bartell won the 1,500-meter run in a time of 4:32.96, while Wallowa's Nick Johnson won the 800-meter run in a time of 2:07.53.

Imbler's Colin Culbreth won the 300-meter hurdles in a time of 41.47, just barely off his personal best for the season. The Joseph 4 x 400 team won in a time of 3:36.89, while the Eagles' Eric Butterfield also won the pole vault at 12-6.

Wallowa's Randy Spaur also set a local best in the long jump, soaring 20-8. That was good for second place.

The Joseph boys tallied 83 points, behind Riverside's 111.
