"We didn't do as well as we would have liked in
the team standings," noted Clackamas Head Coach
Jack Kegg, "but we had some strong individual
performances.
"We didn't let three of some of our better ath­
letes compete because they've been injured and
we wanted to give them a rest before N WAACCs."
Picked to finish in the top three in the Southern
Region, the Clackamas men placed fourth, 25 points
out of second place.
"If we had had those three athletes competing,"
said Kegg, "then we probably would have made
up-those 25 points and finished in second."-
In the men's events, Brian Rohrer led Clackamas
scorers, contributing 32 points alone to the team
score.
With eight points carried over from last week's
third place finish in the NWAACC Multi-event
Championships, Rohrer picked up another eight
with a second place finish in the long jump, five
points from a fourth place finish in the javelin as
well as another ten points with a victory in the pole
vault.
