Twice is nice for Eades; Kamiah boys take third

     A rain soaked state track meet was no problem for Kamiah’s Brooke Eades, who defended her state title in the shot put last Friday at Middleton.

     Eades’ first throw turned out to be the event winner for the 1A ranks. Her mark of 37’9” was about two feet more than the second place finisher. A steady drizzle throughout the morning kept officials scrambling to keep the throwing pits dry.
