Field State Championships at Hayward Field in Eugene.

Senior Tabby Reneman was the only Bruin to participate in the final day of competition.

Reneman concluded her senior season with an 11th place finish in the javelin with a throw of 103 feet.

On Friday, Reneman was one of three Bruins to make the podium at the three-day event.

For the third year in a row, Reneman placed in the discus with a seventh place finish and a throw of 114-10.

Also winning medals at the state championships was freshman Ally Manley and Senior Kyle Botnen.

Manley ran an impressive race in the 3,000-meter run on her way to a third place finish.

She completed the race in 10:34.51 – a 20 second PR – and also broke the school record by more than six seconds.

Botnen also set a new school record as he took fourth place in the pole vault.

After a year of being stuck at 14 feet, Botnen was finally able to clear 14-03 on his way to a medal and a place in the history books.

A number of other Bruins nearly made Saturday's finals, but just missed out with ninth place finishes.

Both the boys' 4x100 and 4x400 teams – which consisted of Botnen, senior Blake Peters and juniors Linden Loren and Kevin Sthen – missed the finals by hundredths of a second.

Junior Kayla Hamm narrowly missed qualifying in the 100-meter hurdles with a ninth place finish and then took 11th in the 300 hurdles.

Loren also took ninth place in the 400-meter dash and senior Steven Sanders finished 10th in the 800-meter run.
