Powder Valley sprinter speeds to victories in ICUE meet

by BRAD MOSHER / The Observer 

ELGIN — Colton Eubanks was busy Thursday.

The Powder Valley senior was busy winning the 100 meters, 200 meters and anchoring the Badgers’ 1,600-meter relay at the ICUE track invitational in Elgin.

In one evening, Eubanks logged the second-fastest time in 1A District 4 (11.47 seconds), the fastest 200 meters (23.15) and improved on Powder Valley’s district-leading 1,600-meter relay time of 3:41:67 by three-hundredths of a second.

But he wasn’t the only competitor to have a good afternoon on the track.

Enterprise’s Austin Burns dominated both the 800 meters and his leg in the 400 meter relay. Although Burns gave the Outlaws an early lead in the relay, Enterprise had to settle for second with a near photo finish. Union’s quartet of Kenneth Sipp, Daniel Colton, Trevor Verhelst and Brooke Scantling won the race with a time of 45.31 seconds. Enterprise was only a step behind, with a time of 45.42 seconds.

Burns took the lead in the 800 meters early and never let it go. The senior won the race in 2:03.23, the fastest 2A time in the state, while teammate David Ribich’s second-place time of 2:06.10 moved him into fifth among the two 2A 800-meter runners. Burns is still improving, according to Enterprise track coach Dan Moody. “He is in 600 (meter) shape. That second 400 is a little too slow. He goes out in 55 and  comes back with a 68 (seconds) . He needs to go out with a 57 and come back with a 62. We’ll get there,” the coach said.

Enterprise’s Falk Thieme won the long jump by three feet Thursday, winning with a 21-foot 7 ½ inch leap. Nic Allstott of Imbler was second with an 18-7 1/4 -inch effort. According to Moody, it wasn’t Thieme’s best.

“He had a 22-3 jump and scratched on it,” the Enterprise coach said. Thieme’s winning distance was enough to give him the best 2A long jump mark in the state by two inches.

In the javelin, Enterprise’s Jordan Widener won with a 140-5 effort, while Dustin Dean went  40-6 to win the triple jump. Dean’s winning effort moved him into fourth among the 2A leaders in the event

Ethan Black gave Union a double win, taking both hurdle races Thursday. The sophomore won the 110-meter hurdles in 18.14 seconds and came back with a 46.68-second triumph in the 300-meter hurdles. The 110-meter effort is the 10th fastest among the Oregon 2A schools.
