On the track…

Hayden Schaffner was a brute at the Wally Ciochetti Invitational in Cottage Grove…  he won the 400 meter outright with a time of 50.66 seconds… that wound up being the third fastest time ever at Siuslaw.  But he wasn’t done.  Later, the final leg of the 4 x 400 relay, he came from behind to end in a virtual tie.  The final 400 was run in 49.33 seconds, the fastest so far in the 4A ranks this year.  The team finish of 3:24.79 seconds left Siuslaw officially in 2nd.

Matthew Campbell was also a multiple winner for Siuslaw.  He won the 800 meters in 1:58.91 and the 15-hundred in 4:03.68.

Katy Potter was fourth in the girls’ 800, running it in 2:22.46 for the third fastest mark in school history.

On the college baseball diamond

Number six ranked Oregon State swept Stanford in three Pac-12 games over the weekend, 7-3; 10-4; and 5-4.  The wins extend the Beavers’ streak to 11 and keeps them a half game ahead of Oregon.

The Ducks meanwhile swept Ohio State in three non-conference games in Columbus 3-1; 4-nothing and one-nothing.  Oregon will host Gonzaga for two non-league games tomorrow and Wednesday then host Oregon State for a Civil War three game series in Eugene beginning Friday.
