Mike McGrath 1:48.56 is new Oregon record;
Benson girls, Gresham boys win team titles;
good javelin marks by Casey Kauffman 209-4 and Kara Patterson 154-4

Lincoln OR senior shatters the previous Oregon record of 1:49.94 (Seth Wetzel of Jesuit at the 1992 Prefontaine Classic developmental meet). The 800 was not especially deep in talent and the night was quite cold, so it didn't look promising. But Joaquin Chapa of Grant boldly led the first lap in a very stiff :53, setting up the second lap perfectly. As Chapa and McGrath ran through the curve at the beginning of the second lap the pace seemed to slow a bit, and then Michael bolted to the lead and seemed to start running through gears like a drag racer. He just seemed to go faster and faster with remarkable leg turnover. The Centennial crowd is not unused to fast 800s (1:52 and better in recent years), but McGrath floored them with his speed. There's a BIG difference between 1:51 and 1:48.There is talk of McGrath looking for a fast mile down in Eugene at the Oregon Twilight Invitational on May 3, and perhaps snaring an invitation to the Prefontaine Classic on May 24. It could happen. He sure had speed tonight. [Dennis Bromka]
