The seniors got the Roseburg boys track and field team off to a good start in the Southwest Conference district meet on Thursday at Sheldon High School’s Roger Herbert Track in Eugene.

Collin Warmouth won the javelin and Carson Ellis earned a state berth with a runner-up finish in the shot put for the Indians, who were in second place in the team standings with 36 points. Grants Pass (65) held the lead.

Grants Pass also set the pace in the girls’ meet, scoring 58 points. Roseburg (20) was in fifth.

Warmouth, in his first season of track, threw the javelin 178 feet, 10 inches. He wasn’t seriously threatened, with North Medford’s Colby Neron in second (165-10) and Ellis finishing third (152-10). Hunter Blix also scored for the Tribe, placing eighth (130-4).

“Collin did what was expected,” RHS head coach Gwen Bartlett said. “We knew he could pull out first if he threw well. He scratched on his first throw, but came back and got the win. We’re excited for him.”

Ellis was far off his PR in the shot put, heaving the iron ball 46-9 1/2. Still, it was good enough to send him to state again. Riley Bonney of Grants Pass was the winner (49-10 1/2).

“I don’t think Carson is at full strength,” Bartlett said. “I know he’s a little disappointed in himself, but he got second. He’ll get a second opportunity to work through it.”

The Indians got a third-place finish from freshman Landyn Dupper in the long jump (20-6 3/4). Sheldon’s DJ Seguin went 20-7 1/4 on his final attempt to move past Dupper and claim the second state berth. Jaren Emptage of G.P. won the title (22-10).

“Landyn and Carson (Six, who finished a non-scoring ninth) were the only two freshmen in the finals,” Bartlett said. “That was a hard pill to swallow for Landyn (falling short of state), but both our jumpers have great futures.”

Also scoring for Roseburg were Zachary Traul in the 3,000 meters (fifth, 8:49.70) and Ethan Pariani in the pole vault (eighth, 10-3).

Bartlett was happy about the sprinters. Finn Fluegel advanced to the final in the 100, Chahaya Hill made it in the 200 and Merhawi Lake, Eddie Herskovitz and Jonathan Colunga all advanced in the 400.

Elijah Hansen had the top qualifying time in the 800 (1:59.75).

“Overall, I’m very pleased,” Bartlett said.

On the girls’ side, senior Erin Mendelson and freshman Eliza Eckman each had third-place finishes for Roseburg.

Mendelson cleared 9-9 in the pole vault, a PR. Eckman clocked 10:38.83 in the 3,000, a PR.

“That’s a good finish for Erin,” Bartlett said. “Eliza ran a smart race. She was patient and ran her race.”

Other scorers for the Indians included Mayah Pappas in the long jump (fifth, 16-9 1/2), Gretchen Lucido in the javelin (sixth, 103-3) and freshman Jaden Warmouth in the shot put (eighth, 29-4 1/4).

Roseburg’s Gracious Lusby advanced to the 100 and 200 finals. South Eugene senior Elise Unruh-Thomas had the top qualifying times in both races.

The meet will resume at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, with 12 finals scheduled on both sides.
