The McKenzie Community Track and Field sponsored the meet and thanks go out to the many volunteers that work and support these events.
Lockart’s wins in the shot put, discus, and javelin events led his Eagle team to a third-place finish score of 87 points. Mohawk won the Boys meet, scoring 123 points and Triangle Lake finished second with 114 pts. Paisley, traveling 3 hours from Central Oregon to participate, took home fourth place with 72.5 pts. followed by Crow in fifth with 44 points and Mapleton in sixth with 37.5 pts.
The Triangle Lake Girls team dominated their competition scoring, rolling up 169 points, easily outdistancing second-place Paisley, which finished the warm, sunny day with 82 points. The McKenzie Eagle Girls team finished third with 53 points, followed by fourth-place Crow with 43 points, fifth place Mohawk with 40 points, and sixth place Mapleton, which finished with 19 points.
Eagle teammate Cody Moralas’ eighth placemark of 29 ft. 0 supported Lockart’s first-place throw of 35 ft. 5.5 in.
