The Coos County Meet, the oldest annual meet in the state, will be held Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.
The 110th edition of the meet kicks off with field events at 5 p.m. at Prefontaine Track, with all six county schools — Marshfield, North Bend, Coquille, Bandon, Myrtle Point and Powers competing.
It’s the second straight year the meet will be held on a Tuesday. It was moved last year to not conflict with Coquille’s annual twilight meet and organizers kept the date on Tuesday again this year.
As usual, it includes a number of the state leaders in various events.
For the boys, North Bend’s Jonathan Chilcote leads Class 4A in the 100, while Marshfield’s Zach Kellar leads in the 400. Marshfield’s Tyler Post leads in the shot put and teammate Sirus Robie shares the Class 4A lead in the triple jump.
Bandon’s Hunter Hutton leads Class 2A in both the 800 and the pole vault. He also leads in the 3,000, though he won’t race at that distance in the county meet. Teammate Josh Snyder leads in the 1,500, but will not compete in that race Tuesday, though he will race in the 300 hurdles, where he ranks second.
For the girls, Marshfield’s Khaley Aguilar leads Class 4A in the pole vault and North Bend’s Chelsea Howard has the top mark in the long jump.
Bandon’s Sailor Hutton leads Class 2A in the 800, 1,500 and 3,000, but won’t compete in any of the distance races Tuesday, instead racing in the 200 and 400.
