Enterprise’s Hero Peters finished third in the 100 M run at the 2A-6 Wapiti League District Track Finals May 11, despite a personal record time of 12.94.
Traditionally a trip to state competition requires a first- or second-place finish. Peters beat the odds.
By virtue of her time, she will represent Enterprise in the 100. It was the highlight of her year.
Peters also ran a leg of the first-place 4x100 Relay team with teammates Dezaria Bathke, Riley Gray and Shelby Moncrief.
Brett Greenshields paced with Outlaw boys. He will compete in four events at the state tournament for Enterprise.
Greenshields, who began his season slowly, peaked at “just the right time,” according to coach Dan Moody.
Greenshields finished first in the long jump with a personal record 19-07.5 and first in triple jump with yet another personal record 39-09.5.
He also ran a leg of the first-place boys 4x400 Relay with teammates Foster Hobbs, Justus Even and James Madsen and finished second in the 300m Hurdles. He has only run the hurdles a handful of times, Moody said.
Other Lady Outlaws racked up a raft of first- and second-place finishes. Kyla Hook took first in the 1500 M and 3000 M events. Karli Bedard added two seconds –– 300m Hurdles and high jump and helped the 4x400 Relay team to a first place finish. Dezaria Bathke, Eliza Irish and Riley Gray were also part of that team.
Gray also posted a second in the 400 M and Moncrief added a second in the 200 M. The girls finished second in district behind Grant Union.
Adding points for the Outlaws were Shane Lund, first in the 100 M with a personal record of 11.58, James Madsen, first in the 200 M with a personal record 23.77 and another first in the 400 M. Foster Hobbs finished second in the 200 M.
The Enterprise 4x400 Relay team of Madsen, Even, Lund and Hobbs added a first-place finish.
Blaze Lepper and Ethan Burns finished first and second in the shot put; Burns with a personal record 42-10 throw. Burns also finished first in the javelin. Dylan Marr added a first in high jump.
The boys finished first in districts.
“It was an exceptional day,” Moody added. “The conditions weren’t that exceptional, but did better than expected anyway.”
Rain and wind pelted the athletes throughout the day.
State competition is May 17-18 in Eugene.
