Pios compete at Oregon State

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- A week after the Northwest Conference Track & Field Championships, the Lewis & Clark Pioneers had a few student-athletes competing at the Oregon State High Performance meet on Friday and Saturday.

NWC 400-meter hurdles champion, Kodie Artner, ran a race of 53.18, his all-time second-fastest mark, to finish second behind a runner from the University of Oregon.

Emily Thompson, who finished third in the same event at the NWC Championships for the women, ran 66.10 in the fastest of the two prelims. 

In the pole vault, Lewis & Clark school record holder Deion Mock placed third, vaulting against heavy and gusty winds.

Kori Groenveld placed 11th out of 18 competitors in the women's 3,000-meter steeplechase. Her time of 11.20.60 is a new Lewis & Clark record, according to Director of Cross Country/Track & Field Keith Woodard.
