EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- The Tigard boys team and the Jesuit girls claimed Class 6A track and field titles at the OSAA state high school championships at Hayward Field on Saturday.

Tigard had 50 team points to edge Barlow with 49. Crater outscored Marshfield 86-63 for the Class 5A title and Sweet Home finished in front of Ontario 58-43.

Jesuit girls won the 6A girls title with 76 points, ahead of rival Southridge with 43. Summit outdueled Hermiston 65-58 in Class 5A and Philomath had 87.5 points in Class 4A, well ahead of Marist with 59.

Among the individual champions, Barlow's Arthur Delaney ran the 200 meters in 21.28, breaking Jordan Kent's meet record of 21.29 set in 2002. He also won the 100 with a wind-aided 10.42.

Gresham's Sam Crouser swept the boys throwing events for the first time in the state's highest division since 1980 when his uncle Brian Crouser did it.

Summit's Kellie Schueler helped her team to its fourth straight championship by finishing her high school career with 16 state titles, tying the state record.

Battling a sore hamstring, Schueler and her teammates won the 4x400 relay in 3:58.33, giving them 65 points to best Hermiston with 58. Schueler, who is headed to Stanford, won the 100, 200 and 400 titles for the fourth straight season.

Hood River senior Lauren Lloyd won the 800 meters in 2 minutes, 10.95 seconds, after two years of second-place finished.
