Five county athletes notch titles in state meets
It was a great day to be a javelin thrower from Douglas County on Friday.
Mackenzii Phillips of Douglas won the Class 3A girls javelin title at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, while Zach Holland of Glide (2A) and Jared Hunt of Camas Valley (1A) were victorious in their respective state meets at Western Oregon University in Monmouth.
Two other county athletes won individual championships. Jadyn Vermillion of Sutherlin captured the 3A girls long jump and Kevin Meier of Oakland claimed the 2A triple jump.
Phillips, a sophomore, repeated as a state champion in the javelin. She won the title in 4A last year.
