For the boys, Andrew Co-
penhaver fi nished third in
pole vault.
After a slow start hit-
ting, Grant Union’s bats
warmed up a bit in the
bottom of the fourth in-
ning. Young led off the
inning with a single. Ty
McDaniels’ single ad-
vanced Young to second
base, and Wyatt Weaver
came to the plate and hit
an RBI single that scored
Young and put Grant
Union on the scoreboard.
Then in the sixth, Mc-
Daniels smashed a dou-
ble. Weaver again came
to the plate, this time
hitting an RBI double,
which scored McDaniels
and recorded his second
RBI of the afternoon.
Grant Union’s bats
quieted down again after
this, and they were un-
able to make a comeback.
Delaney said that he was
pleased with the entire
team the first game, es-
great performance at the
Grant Union came
out a bit flat in the sec-
ond game and allowed
a nine-run first inning.
They played well the
rest of the way, though,
especially at the plate,
where they managed 10
hits. Hayden Young per-
formed especially well
this game, going 3-3
with one RBI and one
run scored.
Moving forward, Del-
aney hopes the team can
learn to bring the effort
and consistency from
their better games to all
their games.
Earlier in the week,
the Prospectors also lost
two close games to Cul-
ver, 9-6 and 17-15.
Dayville athlete Kristina
Humphreys fi nished fi rst in
javelin at both the Burns and
John Day events. She was
also third in discus at Burns.
For the boys, Bud Farmer
earned third in the long jump,
and Gabe Walker was fourth
in the 110 hurdles.
“We had a good meet, and
Gabe was notably the only
hurdler in his event not to hit
a hurdle (in John Day),” said
Dayville head coach Peter Bo-
gardus. “Gabe was the only
athlete who made it to Burns on
Saturday, where he PR’d in hur-
dles, long jump and the 100M.
The weather was perfect.”

Prairie City head coach Joe
Weymouth said his team also
performed well at the John

“Dorran Wilson was fi rst

vaulters: Garrett Hitz with a
new personal and school re-
cord, fi rst in the 110 hurdles
and second in the javelin;
(and) Amaya Zweygardt, with
her 18-inch improvement, is
just 3 inches shy of the school
record. Wyatt Williams per-
formed well. All the athletes

Events: 100-meter dash, pole vault, long

What I like best about my sport: “I like that it is a team sport, but
you can work individually to better yourself and help your team as
well. As my first season in pole vault, I’ve made a lot of
Coach’s Comment: “Amaya has been putting in some extra hours
on pole vault with coach Joe Hitz. She has a goal of making it to
state her senior year. She has a great attitude and works hard. She
recently improved from her first pole vault jump ever of 6 feet to
7-6, an 18-inch increase in less than a week.”

“For some it was not
their lowest, but they played
much better than the scores
working on chipping and
putting,” he said.
As far as this season’s
competition, he said, “It’s
anybody’s game this year.”
He said he appreciates
all the golfers’ positive
“They’ve got a really
good attitude, they like be-

every week and, hopeful-
ly, they peak at the right
time,” he said.
