Siuslaw junior Ryan Rendon-Padilla launched the javelin a school-record 191 feet, 7 inches Tuesday, a day that marked a number of personal records for Vikings track and field athletes.

Rendon-Padilla eclipsed the school standard of 181-11 set by Trent Reavis in 2017. It also was nearly 10 feet further than Rendon-Padilla's previous PR of 181-7.5, which he posted in winning the 2018 state 4A title.

Rendon-Padilla also won the discus Tuesday with a season-best 119-10.

Other Vikings boys winning events in the nine-school meet included:

  • Sophomore Ryan Jennings in the 1,500 meters in a PR 4:38.11a and in the 300 hurdles in a PR 43.24a
  • Junior Isaiah Jones in the 200 in a PR 24.94a
  • Junior Kiger Johnson in the 400 in a PR 55.76a
  • Junior Brendon Jensen in the 800 in a PR 2:05.74a

Lady Vikings posting wins Tuesday included:

  • Junior Hannah Rannow in the 400 in a PR 1:04.84a and in the 800 in 2:27.93a
  • Sophomore Brea Blankenship in the 3,000 in a PR 11:20.59a
  • Senior Madison Reynolds in the shot put with a season-best 32-6
  • Sophomore Andrea Osbon in the discus at 94-3.5

Both the Vikings' boys and girls 4x400 relay teams finished first.

The list of personal records is impressive. For instance, all 16 Vikings boys in the 400 had PRs.
