Siuslaw junior Hannah Rannow ran the fifth-fastest girls 1,500 meters in school history Friday to win the event at the Wally Ciochetti Invitational track and field meet in Cottage Grove.
Rannow finished in 4 minutes, 50.75a seconds to move up three notches on the school's all-time top 10 list, passing Juline Walker and Hadley Roe.
"She was all alone and it was really windy," Siuslaw coach Chris Johnson said of Rannow's race. "She could run close to the school record (4:42.62a, Raelyn Robinson, 2010) in the right conditions with help."
Junior Anne Wartnik won the girls 3,000 and sophomore Ryan Jennings the boys 300 hurdles for the only other Vikings victories.
Wartnik ran a season-best 11:30.22a, while Jennings clocked a personal-record 42.08a.
Junior Ryan Rendon-Padilla was second in the javelin at 188 feet even, and tossed the discus a PR 122-2 for 11th place.
Other notable Vikings marks:
The Siuslaw girls finished fifth in the 13-school field, while the Vikings boys were 10th of 13.
