BC boys second, girls fifth at Corvallis meet

CORVALLIS — In the case of the Butte Central boys, the sport should probably be called field and track.

Led by a strong effort in the field events, the Maroons tied for second place Thursday in the Florence/Darby Invitational at the Corvallis Community Events Center. (Results)

The Maroons’ 60 points were surpassed only by Dillon’s 97. Seeley-Swan tied the Maroons for second. Salmon, Idaho, took third at 57.

Corvallis ran away with the girls’ title with 109 points. Seeley-Swan and Dillon tied for second at 65, Salmon took fourth at 38, and BC placed fifth at 35.

The tournament saw 18 boys’ teams and 19 girls’ squads score team points

Wahl won the discus with a heave of 137 feet, 10 inches. He also placed fifth in the javelin.

Holter won the javelin with an impressive mark of 170-10. That surpassed the qualifying standard for the Class A State tournament.
