At GCB Championships

Trout Lake boys win another team title

Mike Hansen won three individual events and ran a leg of Trout Lake's victorious 4x400-meter relay as the Mustangs added another Greater Columbia B League championship trophy to their collection last Friday in Glenwood.

Hansen, a senior, took first in the long jump and both hurdles events to account for 30 of Trout Lake's 190 points. The second-place team, Riverside Christian, scored 89.

Trout Lake also got first-place efforts from Peter Schmid in the 100, Dale Dick in the 200, Adam Paxson in the 1600, and the team of Schmid, Cruz Avila, Ben Steward and Dick in the 4x100 relay.

The Mustangs scored really big in the 1600 as Paxson led teammates Matt Dearden, Michael Paxson and Tim Dearden across the line for a 1-2-3-4 finish.

Glenwood's Mitch Wheelhouse and James Brewer of Klickitat also were multiple-event winners last Friday.

Wheelhouse set a league meet record in the discus with a throw of 148 feet, 10 inches. He later won the shot put competition with a heave of 45 feet, 8.5 inches.

Brewer's victories came in the javelin (151-6) and the high jump (5-10). He also picked up points in the triple jump with a third-place showing.

In the girls competition, in which La Salle edged Riverside, 162.5 to 160, for team honors, two-event winners included Adi Robertson of Trout Lake and Bickleton's Annie Hess.

Robertson doubled in the 1600 and 3200 runs, while Hess captured league titles in the discus and the shot put. Her shot put of 36-7 broke her own year-old record by two inches.

All told, the daylong competition produced three new league records; two others were tied.

Kynzie Arlt of Bickleton cleared 8 feet in the girls pole vault to set a new league standard by half a foot.

Riverside's Erin Shively tied meet records in winning the girls 100 and 200 dashes.

Trout Lake's boys 4x400 relay team of Dick, Hansen, Steward and Schmid made a run at the league record in that event, finishing in 3:37.7, four-tenths of a second off the pace set by Thorp/Kittitas in 1997.
