Staff Report

Alex Needham's battle to win the boys 4x400 meter relay ended with a third-place finish, but that finish was enough to bump Summit ahead of Marshfield by one point for the Class 5A title at Hayward Field in the OSAA/U.S. Bank/Les Schwab Tires track and field championships.

Needham finished 0.97 seconds behind winner Nic Reinhard of Silverton, but 2.01 seconds ahead of Marshfield senior Blake Kemp and Summit beat Marshfield 78-77 in the final score. The score would have been reversed had Marshfield finished third.

Summit also won the girls title, giving the school four titles in spring after the tennis teams both won.

Sunset won the 6A boys title.

At 4A, Philomath won the boys title and finished second in the girls standings behind Newport.
