PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — If one athlete of the week is good, two is better. At Grant High School, a sister act combined to win three state track championships.

Piper and Ella Donaghu love running together, but they divided to conquer the rest of the state.

In her final state track meet, Piper took home the 6A girls 800 meter championship. She’s off to Georgetown in the fall.

Ella, a sophomore, took the state title in the girls 3000 meter, then pulled away to win the 1500 — and then cheered her big sister in for a Donaghu 1-2 finish.
