Skipper just short of state record in Oregon Relays win

Oregon state recored holder Greg Skipper (Oregon, City, WA) and canadian Joanna Franke (Frances Kelsey, Mill Bay, BC) won this year’s Oregon Relays hosted by the University of Oregon.  Skipper, who set the Oregon state record two weeks ago, led throughout the competition but was followed closely by Matt Lloyd (Camas, WA).  He improved on his fifth attempt to give himself enough breathing room to survive a final round personal best of 199’5″ by Lloyd.  Jordan Arakawa (Capital, Olympia, WA) had little foul trouble, but still placed third well ahead of Canadian Alexander Dumont (Vancouver College, Vancouver, BC).  A post-competition interview with Skipper can be viewed here, and an interview with his father has been posted here.

The women’s competition was also very close. Olivia Midles (Capital, Olympia, WA) held the lead heading into the finals, but Joanna Franke was able to improve in the fifth round and hold on to win by just three feet.  Franke’s best was 158’9″.  Avione Allgood (Legacy, North Las Vegas, NV) took third and fell just inches 120 feet, which would have qualified her for the national performance list.
