COLLEGES: SOU’s Bonney, Rosero clean up in sprints
ASHLAND — Southern Oregon sprinters Lindsey Bonney and Chris Rosero shot to the top of the Cascade Conference leaderboards during SOU Meet No. 3 on Saturday at Raider Stadium.
Bonney, a junior from Grants Pass, became a provisional qualifier for the NAIA Championships in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.10 seconds that also ranks third in SOU’s all-time record book. Freshman Baylee Touey took over the No. 2 slot in the CCC and tied for No. 4 in school history in 12.17, and Julia Delucchi took over No. 3 in the CCC in 12.54 in the same race.
Bonney, Touey and Delucchi were first, second and third in the seven-person race, and Bonney also won the 200 — another event in which she already owns an NAIA ‘B’ mark — in 25.13. Rosero, the CCC’s defending champion in the 100 and 200, is back at No. 1 on the conference performance lists in both events. He placed second in the 100 in 10.95 seconds, making him the first individual to break 11 in the CCC this season, and first in the 200 in 21.91.
Shane McLaughlin was the 200 runner-up in 21.91 and placed third in the 100 — a race in which the Raiders posted five total CCC Championships qualifying times — in 11.04.
Arianna Daniel, running the 800 for just the second time in her career, won in 2:19.05, another conference best.
In the field, Matthew O’Henley was second in the discus with a throw of 136 feet and Garrett Bryan and Adam O’Brien tied for the second-best pole vault clearances at 14-11.
On the women’s side, Camdyn Bruner won the triple jump (35-1) and KiAshe Hobby won the discus (133-1).
SOU 67, MULTNOMAH 40: At Ashland, Mason Whittaker hit four 3-pointers and Tez Allen and Josh Meyer logged two more double-doubles as Southern Oregon completed a series sweep of Multnomah.
Josh Washington was the fourth player in double figures with 10 points for the Raiders, who evened their record at 2-2.
LANE 3, RCC 2: Rogue Community College played its first men’s soccer match in 532 days, losing when visiting Lane found the back of the net for the final goal in the 73rd minute.
Lane (1-0) came out with direct pressure against the Ospreys (0-1), scoring in the third minute.
RCC tied it in the 16th minute when Ricardo Escobar played it to Josue Reyes, who headed it home. Lane scored in the 28th for a 2-1 lead at halftime.
The Ospreys’ Jhoel Sarraude tied it with a penalty kick before Lane’s winner.
