STAYTON, Ore.–  Stayton’s Travis King is eyeing another State appearance after his eighth-place finish as a junior in the 100-meter dash and fifth-place finish in the 200-meter dash as his senior year is drawing to a close on the Track for the Eagles.

At the Regis Community Twilight Meet Friday, King won the 100-meter dash and helped the 4×100 meter relay team to a fourth-place finish in Friday’s 30-team event across the way at Regis High School.

“It was phoenmal dude.  It was such an amazing experience, so grateful to do it.  It’s fun, I’m excited,” King said of the State experience.  “It’s super exciting really.  I’m excited in going back to State hopefully and place first again in the district in the 1 and the 2, hopefully get there too with the 4×1.  It’s really big, I’m excited.

“Just working hard, keeping my head down and making sure I’m listening to the coaches right.  Making sure my block starts are good and making sure I’m not getting too tight and slowing down.  Making sure I got my head up at the right time, so that I’m not looking down the whole race.”

On the boys side, Josh Davis was eighth in the 110-meter hurdles, Riley Burns was fifth in the 300-meter hurdles.  Emmett Reidman was second in the shot put and eighth in the discus.
