Brady Kirkpatrick, 12, of Eugene, is one of only five Oregon youth headed to Pennsylvania this week for the national finals of the Hershey's Track & Field competition. Kirkpatrick, whose Babe Ruth and Junior Challengers baseball play provides his training, will represent the Pacific Northwest, including western Canada, in his age group's softball throw event. At the local level meet at North Eugene High School, Kirkpatrick threw the softball 192 feet, 1/2 inch, a distance that would have placed third in last year's national meet, only one-half inch behind the second-place toss. The age 11-12 boys' winning throw was 208-4 in 2003, but only 191-3 two years ago when Kirkpatrick first competed at the nationals and finished fourth with a throw of 142-2 in the 9-10-year-old division. Other Oregonians going to Hershey this week include Hannah Russo, 10, of Roseburg in the girls 200-meter run, Stephen Foster, 14, of Corvallis in the boys 200-meter run, Matt Sturza, 14, of Bend in the boys 800-meter run and Logan Thorne, 10, of Pendleton in the boys 400-meter run.
