The easy part’s over for Willamina junior Hallee Hughes.
All that’s left for her to become the second Class 3A girl to sweep the throws at the OSAA track and field championships since Oregon went to six classifications in 2007?
Pulling the upset in her weakest event, the shot put.
Hughes took care of the first two steps to the triple crown during the first day of the two-day meet at Hayward Field in Eugene on Thursday, winning titles as a heavy favorite in the discus and javelin.
“I feel really good right now,” said Hughes, hoping to match Jordynn Slater of La Pine from the 2018 meet. “Now, I want to put a little cherry on top and get the third.”
