Clackamas Track & Field alum shine at next level

Six Clackamas alums enjoyed strong seasons in track & field and were recognized at the national level in 2009.

Becky Holliday placed 11th at the US National Track and Field Championships with a pole vault of 13'9.25". Her recent vault of 14-11.5 on July 15 is her personal best and is fourth best in the 2009 USATF women's rankings. Holliday holds records at the University of Oregon for the indoor and outdoor pole vault, national junior colleges and former NCAA Championships record holder. She was the 2003 NCAA National Champion and still holds the pole vault record at Clackamas.

Ryan Brandel made the USATF rankings with a throw of 224'3" after working through a chronic back injury. Brandel is one of the top javelin throwers to go through the University of Oregon and was an All-American in 2007.

Andria Scheese had an incredible season at Concordia University-Portland this year. One of her biggest highlights was her third place finish at the NAIA National Outdoor Championships in the 1500 meters with a time of 4:34.25. Scheese has solidified herself in the record books at Concordia by earning school records in the indoor 5000 meters, indoor distance medley relay, outdoor 5000 meters, and outdoor 1500 meters. These were all accomplished while being a mother of three, wife, full-time manager of a nurse staffing company and being 32 years of age. Scheese never ran competitve distance running until she arrived at Clackamas.

Chris Dilley finished 2nd in the hammer throw and made the final in the discus throw at the NAIA Outdoor National Championships while competing for Eastern Oregon University. His throw of 205’ not only earned him All-American status but also broke the school record at Eastern. Quint Baxter, also a thrower for Eastern, qualified for the championships in the hammer and shot put.

Jeeni Schantin placed third at the NCAA Division II National Championships in the javelin with a throw of 153’11”. This was the third national championship meet Schantin has competed in. She was a competitor at the 2007 USATF National Championships placing 17th. Schantin was 4th last year at the NCAA Championships.
