Led by a pair of returning district champions the Baker track and field teams will be looking to improve on last year’s district placing and possible state performances.

Nic Maszk returns as the Greater Oregon League boys 1,500 and 3,000 champion. Jorden Osborne also returns as the GOL shot put champion.

Mitko Smith, Cody Osborn, Mark Voboril and Roberto Kitch also return from last year’s state-qaulifying boys 4x400 relay team.

“We have a very exciting combination of experienced upper classmen and very talented and good numbers in the freshmen/sophomore ranks,” said Baker coach Suzy Cole.

“This is a fun team with a good work ethic and fun attitude.”

Other returning upper classmen are Connor Yates in the middle distances, Lane Zacharias, Nick Bisterfeld and Grayson Swiger in the throwing events, and Chaz Lowry in the throws and sprints.

Newcomers include Dane Bachman in the jumps and 400, Tyler Hertel in the 400 and 800, Tyson Walton in the throws and Stephen Spenst in the distances.

For the girls, Ashley Trees and Liz Wulk advanced to state a year ago. Trees advanced in the javelin, and Wulk in the long jump.

Other returning athletes are Tonita Britt, Kyana Chaves and Ashley McConniel in the sprints, Kathryn Daugherty in the 800, Stacy Duman in the hurdles, Allie Ferdig in the throws, Sami Searles in the throws and vault, Jessilyn Sayers in the javelin, and Rachel Streifel in the high jump and pole vault.

Monica Voboril is a newcomer in the middle distances.

“The girls have a very talented freshmen group,” Cole said. “I feel like we are pretty well diversified in all events. Once again a super fun group and looking forward to moving up in our team standings at district.”
