Gold Beach distance runner Avi Gaston and Brookings-Harbor hurdler Shaine Graham each won their respective events at the 15th annual Prefontaine Rotary Invitational on Saturday at Marshfield High School.
Over 30 schools from Oregon, California and Washington competed at the prestigious event that is one of the largest meets in the state of Oregon outside of the state championships.

Various fisheries representatives from Washington, Oregon and California spent last week in Rohnert Park, California, crunching numbers at the annual PFMC meeting until they finally came up with a 130-day ocean salmon season for the Oregon and California Klamath Management Zones (KMZ).

The weather at Saturday’s annual Brookings-Harbor Rotary Invitational track and field meet created a unique situation for the athletes competing for the 13 schools in attendance.
The morning showers created a wet track and chilly conditions, but by the afternoon, several hours of sunshine dried the track out meaning athletes had to adapt on the fly to how they prepared for their events.
