GRANTS PASS, Ore. — The 6A Southern Oregon district track meet begins Thursday in Grants Pass and the home team will be a strong contender for both the boys and girls team titles.

Grants Pass has been blessed with several athletes capable of winning multiple events. One of those versatile athletes is senior Krissi Clark. Clark ranks in the top ten in the state in the shot put, discus and javelin. She is the only female in 6A track that ranks in the top ten in all three events.

Usually you’ll see a lot of athletes who are good in the shot and discus, but the javelin is a bit harder to master. Clark picked it up the latest, but was the skill and athleticism to excel in all three events.
