    ´╗┐Surprise wins o'plenty at MWC district meet A slow start to the 1.9 mile racemade it a sprinter's kick to the finish, and it was Bailey who was first to the line to edge out Lebanon's Isabella Ayala, the race favorite, along with Tora Skog of Corvallis and Kela Leamy of Crescent Valley. Bailey finished in a personal best 10 minutes, 58.78 seconds, Ayala in 10:59.59, Skog in 11:00.2 and Leamy in 11:01.28. The top two placers in each event and those reaching qualifying marks and times advance to next week's 5A state meet at Hayward Field in Eugene. State meet fields will also be filled with other top district results. The Mid Willamette meet concludes Saturday. Bailey picked up the pace with about 400 to go and had Ayala and Skog with her. "At the 100 mark, I wasn't expecting it at all, to even have an opportunity to go to state," j&s nike she said. "Just to be there at the finish I had to give it everything I could because it was my only shot." It was a bit of redemption for Bailey, whose anemia kept her from competing in the cross country state meet last fall. Then, in the past week, she suffered shin splints while pole vaulting. "I was just hoping to finish this race I had all my (leg) tape and everything," Bailey said. Ian Vickstrom followed suit soon after in the boys 3,000 where he was the defending champion. The Corvallis junior's season best time was nearly 14 seconds slower than he ran to win his 2016 title, but that was of no concern to him. Vickstrom turned in on with a lap to go and had more than enough to hold off the competition. His winning time of 9:03.82 was a personal best by almost 10 seconds and his fastest of the spring by more than 23. "Times don't matter. It's all about placement," he said. "It's about running competitive races nike youth football cleats and I've been pretty competitive all season." He said he was feeling good in the week leading up to the race and credited Spartans coach Mark Hulburt with positive thoughts. Plemmons, of Crescent Valley, came from the first flight of lower seeded athletes to win the girls long jump at 16 feet, 2 inches, an improvement on her previous season best by 18 inches. She was hoping to possibly make state in one of her other events triple jump, high jump or discus but Friday's results were unexpected. "I changed my landing a little bit," Plemmons nike 5 panel hat said of her winning jump, which came on her fifth of five attempts. "I didn't realize it was that good of a jump when I got out of the pit, but I think everybody else did. I was giving high fives and I didn't understand why."
