FLORENCE — Roseburg and Sutherlin sent athletes to the Central Coast Invitational track and field meet at Siuslaw High School on Friday. 

The Sutherlin boys placed sixth out of 10 teams, while the girls finished sixth out of 11. 

On the boys' side for the Bulldogs, there was only one first place finisher as Gavin Eastwood won the high jump with a best jump of 5-10. Sutherlin's only other top three finisher was Bryce Olsen in the long jump with a mark of 18-6. 

The Sutherlin girls had just one top three finisher. Jadyn Vermillion placed first in the long jump (16-6) and was second in the triple jump (33-6).
