NACHES, Wash. — Bill Buchanan’s venerable all-time Valley high school record in the shot put survived for over half a century and held back a family assault from his grandson, Jonathan.

But finally, after 56 years, Buchanan’s record could not hold off Jake Callaghan.

The Naches Valley senior reached 61 feet, 2 1/4 inches at Friday’s 16-team Naches-Riverside Christian Invitational, taking down Buchanan’s 1957 mark of 60-7 while at Moxee High School. Four years ago, Jonathan Buchanan, a two-time state 2A champion, topped out at 60-1 1/4 in his final competition.

Callaghan’s big throw is a dominant Class 1A state best and trails only Wenatchee’s Cody O’Connell, whose 62-1 leads the state.

With his Valley record secured, Callaghan used the momentum and adrenaline to record a career best in the discus, winning at 145-3 for the double victory.

Callaghan wasn’t the only record-breaking Naches Valley athlete on Friday as Delaney Romero broke the school record in the long jump at 18-1 1/4, which is tied for fifth on the Valley’s all-time list. Romero also won the 100 in 12.69 seconds, placed second in the 200 and helped the Rangers finish second in the 4x100.

Zillah’s boys and girls showed off their depth and strength by sweeping the team titles with 80 and 88 points, respectively.

Senior Beth Wise swept the hurdles and contributed to Zillah’s first-place 4x400, and freshman Alexis Redfield turned in a strong 5:29-12:11 double in the distances.

Cle Elum’s KC Andrus extended her career best in the javelin to 129-9. Andrus is the state 1A leader, as is Romero in the 100 and long jump.

The third annual meet was attended mostly by SCAC teams, who are now preparing for sub-district meets on May 10 followed by the district meet at Toppenish on May 17.
