Ohio track, Day 2

June 7, 2008 - Mike Mathison
The Catholic Central girls track team completed a first on Saturday in the Division III portion of the Ohio Track and Field Championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State University.

The Crusaders broke into the top 10 for the first time in the team standings by finishing eighth, one point behind Barnesville and all-everything standout Stephanie Morgan.

Bernadette DuBois, Teddi Maslowski, Katrina Vosteen and Eliza Scarnecchia finished second in a school-record 1:43.52 in the 4x200 relay. They placed second to Bellaire St. John's state-meet record of 1:43.21.

A brilliant run by all 8 ladies.

Indian Creek's Michael Smith finished third in the 300 hurdles, as did Maslowski. DuBois also took third in the 400.

21 state and state meet records were either broken or tied in the two days.

Morgan ran the second-fastest time ever in state history in the 800 with a 2:09.87 clocking.

Napoleon's Ryan Fleck had the second-highest jump ever in state history with a leap if 7-1 1/2 in the high jump.

It was the best jump in the state in 21 years, since Elyria's Mark Cannon went 7-2 1/4.

Fleck just missed three times at 7-2 1/2.

It was another really impressive meet.

I'm just not a big fan of winners missing the podium because they have to "do things" to get ready for the next race. My guess is you are not the only runner having to "do things" to get ready for the next race.

Stand up there and get your medal.

At the same time, OHSAA needs to make sure there aren't a bunch of kids waiting in the area to get their medals.
