Track and field athletes from Roseburg, Glide, Sutherlin and Oakland all had some shining moments in the 44th annual Jim Robinson Twilight Invitational on Saturday at RHS’s Finlay Field.

Rain fell during the running finals in the evening, but the marks were solid for early in the season.

“I’m thrilled. I’m pleased with where we’re at on the track,” Roseburg coach Gwen Bartlett said. “We had a lot of PRs today.”

Gracious Lusby of Roseburg, Dillon Towne and Zach Holland of Glide and Jadyn Vermillion of Sutherlin came away with individual victories.

Lusby, a junior, won the girls 100 meters in 12.32 seconds, knocking off defending 4A state champion Baylee Touey of North Valley. Touey was timed in 12.41 and Vermillion, a sophomore, was third in 13.24.

“That was really exciting,” Lusby said. “I honestly didn’t think I was going to beat her (Touey), but it was fun. I actually had a really bad start. I would’ve liked to have a faster time, but winning the race was a good start for my first open 100.”

Glide, a Class 2A school, came away with wins in two of the boys’ throwing events, with Towne winning the discus (155-10) and Holland taking first in the javelin (188-2).

Towne, a senior, won back-to-back 3A state titles in the shot and discus. He finished fourth Saturday in the shot (46-7 1/2) and placed sixth in the javelin (146-0).

“I felt pretty good about today overall,” Towne said. “I was just trying to get back in the groove of things. The shot put could’ve went a little better, but 155 (in the discus) is a good start. I still have a lot to work on.”

Holland, a standout baseball player for the Wildcats, will divide his time between two sports this spring. His winning javelin mark was nearly 17 feet ahead of runner-up Collin Warmouth of Roseburg (171-7), who set a PR.

“I threw 184 in practice, and came here and stayed relaxed,” Holland said. “I dropped a 186, then dropped 188 and just called it good. I was happy with myself. Hopefully I can get better from here.”

“Zach’s a natural athlete,” Towne said. “Seeing him go out there and being able to do that without much practice is pretty insane. I can’t wait to see what he does this year as far as going to state.”

Kaylee Hendron of Glide finished second in the girls discus (123-1).

Vermillion won the long jump with a best of 16-10 1/2. Nina Richardson of North Eugene was second (16-8).

Fiona Max of Summit shattered the meet record in the girls 3,000, clocking 9:46.16 — the best high school time in the nation to date. Roseburg freshman Eliza Eckman finished fourth (10:52.79).

“To be honest, today was a race for a friend (Tom Shoderbeck) who passed away,” Max said. “That was on my mind before the race, it was my motivation. It was hard to be out here today, but in the end it was about racing for a friend.

“I knew what splits I had to run, I didn’t know what I was going to make of it. I wanted to be out here to run fast and I’m pretty stoked about the time. That’s way past what I thought I’d run this season.”

Roseburg senior Elijah Hansen placed second in the 800 with a time of 2:01.05. Reed Hungerford of South Medford won the race (1:59.88).

“I knew the weather would be kind of crappy, so my plan was to sit and kick,” Hansen said. “I don’t think I made a move early enough to get the win. I’m still coming back from an illness and my energy level isn’t there yet, but I’m happy to get around two-flat.”

Roseburg’s Zachary Traul was third in the 3,000 in 8:50.71, a PR. Daniel Beckstead of Grants Pass was the winner (8:40.94).

“That was a really good race. I was glad to run against some friends,” Traul said. “I had a nine-second PR and that’s all I could ever hope for. I’m 30 seconds faster than I was last year.”

Roseburg’s 4x100 relay team of Eddie Herskovitz, Chahaya Hill, Finn Fluegel and D’Angelo Adams finished second (44.79). The 4x400 quartet of Herskovitz, Fluegel, Jonathan Colunga and Hansen placed second (3:33.24).

Roseburg’s Samantha Eichman won the girls afternoon 800 (2:33.16) and John Sago won the afternoon 1,500 (4:42.63).

Hadley Brooksby of Oakland finished in the top five in three events, placing third in the high jump (4-10) and triple jump (33-3 3/4) and taking fifth in the long jump (16-6).
