Kramer logs second best 4A mark in 300 hurdles
There was only one win at the Meet of Champions Saturday for the Tillamook track team.
But that didn’t mean that the Cheesemakers didn’t make some waves on the Willamette University track in Salem.
It was senior Kara Putman who grabbed the win, taking the top spot in the 800 meters with a time of 2:30.61, beating out Astoria freshman Sophie Long for the top spot.
Her winning time also moved her into sixth place among the 4A performances this season. Whitney Averill placed fourth in the race with a time of 2:35.18.
Kenny Kramer, another senior, set a new personal mark in the 300 meter hurdles when he placed second to Dayton’s Owen McLoud. But Kramer’s time was fast enough to put him number two in the 4A in the event.
Among the other top marks in the competition were the distance performances of the Cheesemakers.
Phoebe Brown and Solace Bergeron took second and third place in the 3,000 meters, behind Sisters’ Kate Bowen who locked up a double victory in the 1,500 and 3,000.
Bowen crossed the line in 10:51.73, with Brown following her five seconds back in 10:56.23, a new personal best for the Tillamook senior.
Bergeron followed in 11:05.48 for third place. Sarah Pullen and Paige Ross placed eighth and 10th in the event with times of 11:31.57 and 11:45.20, respectively.
In the boys 3,000 meter, Carter Kunert place fourth with a personal best time of 9:25.14. It is the sixth-best time in the 4A division and the second-best time in the Cowapa League.
Tillamook will be back in action today (weather permitting) hosting Astoria and Seaside. First event starts at 3:30 p.m.
