LA GRANDE GIRLS TRACK WINS VALE INTERNATIONAL

VALE — The La Grande track girls won the Vale Invitational Thursday, while Skyler MacDonald continued his dominance in the javelin.

The girls won three events, including the 4 x 400 relay. MacDonald made yet another strong showing in the javelin with a throw of 197 feet, 4 inches, just two feet off his 3A best throw of a week ago.

MacDonald won the javelin by 44 feet.

Among the girls, La Grande's Kristin Brogdon had her best high jump of the year at 5-5, winning that event. In the words of coach Joe Sandoz, there was intense competition and "she refused to lose."

Kylee Winkler won the 400-meter run with a time of 1:01.78 (La Grande's Crystal Kevan was second at 1:03.49), and she also had a personal best in the 200 with a time of 27.39. That was good for third.

La Grande's Kyle Puckett also had an excellent, setting personal bests in the 100- and 200-meter runs. Both his times are also area bests.

Puckett ran a 23.36 in the 200 and a 11.48 in the 100. He was third in the 200 and fourth in the 100.

Sandoz also said Justin Moncrieff had a great 3,000-meter run. He knocked 17 seconds off his best time and finished second.
