Kara Hallock and Thomas Cranor, track and field athletes at Lane Community College, forwarded the momentum they gained from their Saturday performance at the Lane Multi Qualifier to take home victories in the heptathlon and decathlon, respectively.
Hallock, who finished day one of the qualifier with a total of 2,623 points in the heptathlon, added to her score with impressive efforts during the second day of competition to give her a final tally of 4,036 points. Hallock’s best performances came in the 100 m hurdles, high jump, 200 m, and long jump–events she came out of with victories. She reached a height of five and a half feet in the high jump, finished with a time of 27 seconds in the 200 m, and reached a distance of 17 feet, six inches in the long jump.
Cranor, meanwhile, finished the decathlon in first place with 5,996 points. Among his best performances was a 20 feet, 1 inch long jump and a 165 feet, 3 inch javelin throw. Both marks allowed the sophomore to record victories at the multi.
Other top performers for the Titans included Rochelle Pappel and Kristin Clark, athletes who placed second and third in the heptathlon. Pappel took second in the heptathlon while Clark took third. Trevor Prater and Jacob Robertson placed in second and third behind Cranor, allowing the Titans to sweep the top-3 of both the heptathlon and decathlon. The only other participating school was Southwestern Oregon Community College.
Southwestern Oregon’s best finish was achieved by Taylor Elmgren, who found herself in fourth place in the heptathlon at the end of day two.
Lane’s track and field team will see their next action when they head to Salem for the Willamette University Invite on Friday, April 5.
