UMATILLA – This past season’s 3A District 6 track and field meet wrapped up with new district records in six events. While the girls saw a lone record hit the books, the boys saw five new marks to beat in the future.

The lone new mark for the girls came in the 4-by-100 relay as Vale’s Elli Jacobs, Haylee Cleaver, Bella Johnson and Clarie Johnson clocked in a 49.83 second finish.

For the boys, MacHi’s Johnny Koklich hit the tape in 11.04 seconds in the 100 meters for a new district record.

Burns’ Carson Volle now holds two district records from the meet. Running the 110-meter hurdles in 15.25 seconds and the 300-meter hurdles in 40.02 seconds sets the goal for future runners competing in the district meet.

The final two new records both belong to Vale and both come in the relay events. Colten Stepleton, Skyler Cade, Kase Schaffeld and Spur Jacobs passed the baton around the track in the 4-by-100 relay in a time of 43.77 seconds.

The same four Vikings have the new mark to beat in the 4-by-400 relay with a time of 3 minutes, 28.14 seconds.

For future track and field athletes in the district looking to set a record at the district meet, the oldest boys’ record comes from 2009 as Nyssa’s Eric Jensen cleared 6 feet, 5 inches in the high jump event. For the girls, the oldest record goes back even one year earlier. In 2008, Nyssa’s Genniel Wagstaff hit the tape in the 800 meters with a time of 2:18.75.

As of this writing, the district meet for 2025 is scheduled to be held at McLoughlin High School.
