Tunai, Hill set PRs, 2nd place in Gresham

The stakes were raised Friday for The Dalles track team while facing four 6A schools, nine 5A programs and a 3A Clatskanie in the Dean Nice Invitational Meet in Gresham.

The Eagle Indians posted six top-5 finishes, as Yasmin Hill and senior Lio Tunai picked up the two best finishes for the day.

Tunai shattered his personal record in the shotput with a distance of 56-feet-2.5 inches, a throw that was more than four-feet better than his previous best this season.

Hill kept her surge on a high note with a silver-medal performance in the long jump, where she hit the dirt in 17-0, another personal record by nearly six inches.

Hill added a fourth in the pole vault with a 9-6, and teammate Katie Conklin notched fourth-place status in the high jump with a height of 4-10.

Conklin rattled off a time of 16.63 seconds for seventh place in the 100-meter high hurdles, and junior Maddie Wood strutted out to 11:30.21 for seventh place in the 3,000-meters.

Liz Tunai placed 10th in the discus with a throw of 93-3, and Avery Cardosi scored 11th in the long jump at 15-3.5.

Another long distance runner who has stepped up her game of late is Emily Morin.

The sophomore clocked in at 5:26.36 in the 1,500 and she added a marker of 11:44.39 in the 3,000.

Zach Nerdin notched sixth in the 110-meter hurdles in 16.22, grabbed fifth in the 300 hurdles with a time of 42.91 and capped his day in sixth for the high jump at 5-10.

Sant Strassheim was fourth in the 300 hurdles with his 42.46, Riley Bardes cracked the top-8 in discus with a 123-5 and Mark Johnson tied his personal record of 12-6 to finish in a seventh-place tie.

The Dalles hits the track again starting at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Wahtonka High for the Columbia River Conference Last Chance Meet.
