MONMOUTH — Shattering records is the norm for a few athletes at the OSAA Class 2A/1A State Track and Field Championships Saturday at Western Oregon University.

Powder Valley senior Todd Baxter launched a 155 feet, 7 inch discus throw, which blasted the 1993 meet record by Ione's Deacon Heideman at 152-11. Baxter won the discus for the second straight year.

Baxter also won the shot put for the second year in a row with a throw of 50-4.

He helped the Badgers to a third-place finish in the team standings. The Badgers tied Mitchell with 45 points.

Powder Valley's Cody Taylor won the pole vault with a 13-0 effort.

Teammate Arden Perkins was second in the 100-meter dash and sixth in the 200.

Wallowa sophomore Hayley Oveson celebrated her 16th birthday by winning the 1,500 and 3,000 for the second straight year.

Oveson chose to remain behind lead runner New Hope's Emily Morehouse for the majority of the two races, then made her move to pass Morehouse late in the races. Her strategy worked and in the process, she destroyed her own meet records from last year.

This was the final time Oveson ran in the Class 1A state meet. She is transferring to La Grande High School in the fall.

"Obviously, it's really sad," she said.

Oveson explained there are a lot of opportunities in La Grande, but it is hard for her to leave the town and friends.

"It's weird without Mysha and Lynique (Oveson)," she said.

Mysha and Lynique are Hayley's cousins. Mysha and Lynique graduate this year.

Lynique and Mysha agreed the highlight of the meet was watching Hayley "kicking butt."

Lynique was third in the javelin. Mysha was eighth in the 100 hurdles.

Wallowa's 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams finished in the top five.

The short relay came in fifth, while the long relay was fourth.

Powder Valley's Shauna Nelson won the 800 for the second year in a row in 2:27.44. She was third in the high jump.

The Badgers were eight points out of first place in the team standings. Dasmascus Christian won with 71 points.

Powder Valley's Joelle Bain was second in the 100, while Ashley Dozhier was fifth. Bain was fifth in the long jump.

Teammate Hailee Bingham was fifth in the 300 hurdles and sixth in the 100 hurdles. Bingham was fourth in the pole vault.

Bingham, Lacey Lyman, Dozhier and Bain were on the fourth-place 4x100-meter relay team.

Powder Valley's 4x400 relay team came in sixth.

Cove's Julia Scheele was fifth in the 400. Tom VanNice was third in the shot put. Raage Sofe was sixth in the 110 hurdles.

Wallowa's 4x400-meter relay team took third behind strong, fast legs from Patrick Silveira, Nick Johnson, Dustin Byers and Jake Goebel.

Johnson was fifth in the 800. Byers was seventh in the 110 hurdles.

Elgin's Amber Looslie, who didn't get the chance to run at state last year, won the 800-meter run in 2:15.90. She kicked hard down the final stretch to hold off the other runners.

"It feels awesome. I waited for three years," said Looslie, who has signed a letter of intent to run track at Boise State next year.

Teammate Kelsey Davis was eighth in the 200 and third in the 400.

Enterprise's Nicole Santiago took sixth in the 300 hurdles.

Joseph's Corey Otten was sixth in the 400.

Enterprise's Tony Swart finished fifth in the 300 hurdles.

The 4x400 boys' relay was intense. Joseph opened up a lead on defending champion Scio after the first three legs. But Scio's anchor leg Joe Jones kicked it hard to beat Joseph's Otten at the finish line.

Scio won the relay in 3:30.77. Joseph came in second with a time of 3:31.61.
