The Vandals’ day was highlighted by Van Vinson’s first place finish in the pole vault.  His mark of 15 feet, 3 inches established a new Class 3A record, and Vinson also contributed to McCall-Donnelly’s 1st place Sprint Medley Relay team, along with Caleb Beaman, George Speirs and Matthew Daniels. 

Daniels added a 1st place finish in the 400 Meter Dash, while Speirs got progressively better in the distance races, taking 3rd in the 800 Meter Run, 2nd in the 1600 Meter Run, and 1st in the 3200 Meter Run.

A wild and unpredictable 2A State Tournament came down to two district rivals in the championship game.  Orofino defeated Grangeville 8-4 at Pocatello’s Halliwell Park to cap an emotionally draining run to the title.  The Maniacs had to hold by their fingernails in a 7-6 win over Firth in the opening round, and a back-and-forth 17-13 win over Wendell in the semifinals.

In a tournament with such variability and volatility, you need some help on your side.  Luck, faith, whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that the Maniacs were helped out from their fallen teammate Drew Hanna from the skies above.

Hanna tragically passed away in a car accident in August, just ahead of his senior year at Orofino High School.  The three-sport standout loved baseball the most, and was Orofino’s top pitcher and emotional leader.  His passing left a void that was filled by nearly everyone else on the team, and as the team received their first place plaques, an empty hanger with Drew’s #2 jersey was on the field with the team as a poem written about Drew by an Orofino community member was read on air during IdahoSports.com’s broadcast of the game.  It’s a moment that the tight-knit community of Orofino won’t soon forget.
