NASELLE Jake Condon won the pole vault and Katie Green zipped to a win in the 1,600-meter run for the Comets in a four-team track meet at Reuben Penttila Field March 28. Condon cleared a seasons best 11-feet to win handily and Green ran the metric equivalent of the mile in 5:56.24 to win by 29 minutes.
Naselle boys team edged Taholah 33 to 28 to finish third and the Comets girls were also third as Northwest Christian won both team divisions.
Clearing 11 feet is my best vault of the year. Now I want to go over 11-6 and eventually 12 feet and go up from there. I know Valley has two good pole vaulters, but I hope to be one of the top five at district and go to state, said Condon. I want to do well in the 100, javelin and hopefully talk a couple of other guys into having a 4x100 relay team.
