Helping the Pirate boys to a team win was Troy Steele, who finished first in javelin, discus and shot put, totaling 30 of the team's 113.5 points in the Pirate-hosted meet April 14. Here Steele launches the javelin, his first-place mark was 127-4.

COLFAX–Pomeroy's Boys track and field team finished a strong second place out of the 13 teams competing in the District 7 & 9 meet here April 17 where spectators saw Pirate pole vaulter Colton Slaybaugh extend his state-leading vault mark to 13-9. The Pirates scored 69.5 points, slightly behind Valley Christian's 74 points and ahead of Oakesdale's and Selkirk's third-place tying 57. Pirate girls scored 60.5 for fourth place behind Gar-Pal 29, Valley Christian 93, and Oakesdale, 74.

"Many events featured 30 to 40 participants," said Head Coach Adam Van Vogt.

Colton Slaybaugh's 13-9 vault is the leading height for 1B track and field.

Freshman sprinter Tyler Slaybaugh finished fourth in the 100, out of 36, and his time puts him in third of all 1B freshmen in the state. And freshman thrower David Tejero has the third farthest discus throw for a freshmen in the 1B state rankings, Van Vogt said.
