While there were no team scores kept, the Homer girls and Soldotna boys track and field programs enjoyed successful days Friday in a dual meet at Homer High School.

Soldotna won six of nine events on the boys side, while Homer claimed eight wins on the girls side.

SoHi senior Brenner Furlong captured two wins in the boys 100- and 400-meter sprints, senior Wendell Tuisaula got his state championship defense in the discus off to a good start with a win, and SoHi freshman Jordan Spies nipped senior teammate Logan Schrader for the triple jump title, then helped the Stars win the 400 sprint relay, joining Zack Zeigler, Joe Van Hout and Eli Cravens.

Among the big girls winners, sophomore Marina Carroll won the girls triple jump with a personal best and also helped Homer win the two relays. Carroll was joined by Anna Godfrey, Laura Inama and Kailee Veldstra in the winning 400 relay and teamed up with Kate Baring, Brooke Miller and Autumn Daigle in the 1,600 relay.

Also for Homer, junior Anna Brock won the discus toss with a new PR to kick-start her state title defense in the event, and Veldstra won the girls 100 to begin her quest of another state crown in that race.

SoHi’s only girls event win was the 100-meter hurdles, won by junior Sophie Thomas.
