by Donnie Nelson

The Douglas High School track and field program was well represented last weekend at the NIAA/U.S. Bank 4A State Championships by five athletes.

The Tigers finished 17th on the girls side with nine points behind the efforts of Kathleen McSweeney, Kelly Mogab and Christina Morgan. They finished 20th on the boys side with nine points thanks to Chris Griffith and Landon Smallwood.

McSweeney, a junior, finished fifth in the 3,200 meter race and in the process set a school record with a time of 11 minutes, 48.99 seconds. The old record was 11:52, set by Cary Carroll in 1984. Mogab, also a junior, followed closely behind in sixth.

Laura Shackleton of McQueen won the race in 11:11.18.

Morgan, a junior, placed sixth in the discus.

Griffith and Smallwood placed fourth in the high jump and pole vault, respectively. Griffith, a senior, cleared a personal best of 6-foot-4 and Smallwood, a sophomore, sailed over the bar at 13-0.

Lukes of Rancho won the high jump with a clearance of 6-9 and Monarrez of Rancho won the pole vault with a clearance of 14-0.

Reed won the girls team title with 125 points while Cheyenne won the boys championship with 90 points. The top-four placers in each event can be seen on page 10.
