SHELTON — Kalama and Woodland were just a few fish in a big pond at the 62nd Shelton Invitational, joining 37 other schools at Highclimber Stadium on Saturday.

Kalama’s Alena Ross had the best individual result of any local athlete, clearing 9ft, 6in in the girls’ pole vault and taking third place. On the boys’ side for the Chinooks, Max Cox finished fifth in the javelin with a throw of 159 feet, 4 inches. He also recorded a throw of 42 feet, 9 inches in the shot put and snuck into the top 10 by a single inch. Anthony Peonio finished ninth in the boys’ pole vault with a straight 12 feet.

Cole Logan led Woodland with a fourth-place time in the boys’ 300-meter hurdles (41.57). In the girls, the Beavers’ Addalei Seimer and Autumn Pietz both cleared 4ft, 10″, with Seimer taking fifth place with a tiebreaker.

Woodland is expected to attend a 2A GSHL meeting in Washougal on Wednesday while Kalama will await the Spudder Classic on Friday.
