South Wins District Title
J. C. Tilton

To me this an exciting time of year, when young athletes are giving it their all in hopes of getting a district win and a chance to qualify for state. Local athletes had some outstanding performances in Welcome Stadiums Division III District track meet. South’s boys track team has been fighting injury all season, but were able to bring it all together when it counted to capture another District Title. Coach Fahrenholtz attributed the title to team work and a strong showing in the field events.

During the meet there was a rare runoff involving South’s Jordan Krickenbarger. He tied for 4th place in the 110m hurdles with a runner from Cedarville. The photo finish showed a tie between the two of them. Since the top 4 go to regionals, the officials stopped the meet and had a runoff between the two runners. It was a close duel until Krickenbarger clipped a hurdle about ¾ thru the race, throwing him off stride. Although he lost the runoff, Krickenbarger will still be attending the regional meet since he won in the pole vault.

Some highlights from the meet - DeAaron Isaac of Dixie had an outstanding day, qualifying in 3 events for the regionals. First in the 110m & 300m hurdles, 2nd in the 4X400m relay. Dixie’s 4X100mteam was a winner. North’s Myranda Schoen qualified in two events – winning the discus throw and runner up at shot. Dixie’s girls team sent 2 girls in the pole vault, Megan Uzzel, the district champ, and Lindsay Seim 3rd place. South’s boys team did the same on the boys side with Krickenbarger winning and 3rd place Ryan Burns qualifying. South’s Skylar Recker won the high jump. South’s George Holman was a two even qualifier – winning the 1600m run and placing 4th in the 800m run.

“It was a total team effort” stated Coach Fahrenholtz of South, “We scored in every field event. In fact every field event will have at least one person going to regional. Reckers won the high jump which was an upset over the jumper from Cedarville. George Holman had a tremendous meet – the key was the 800. He had won the 1600m and came back and scored high enough to put us over the top. He did it in 2:01 which is a super time. And in the 1600m run our freshman, Josh Perry, got a 6th place. Every time we can score two kids in an event like that, it helps put us on top. That’s how you win championships, its not always the guys that get first place, it’s also the guys that go out and get 5th and 6th places. That’s what makes it a good team effort”

Coach Via of Dixie was pleased with her pole vaulters. “Both of them were excellent today, one tied her personal best and the other set a personal best. Sherry Myers qualified for regionals in the high jump. A surprise was freshman Adrianna Frizzel, she qualified in the discus, we knew that she was capable and today she went out and did it. The 4X100 team had a heartbreaker, the 4th thru 7th place teams were with a few hundredths of a second. Overall I was happy with the teams performance.”

Jack Sturgill boys coach from Dixie was pleased with the athletes that are going to regionals. “Our relay teams did well today. Stapleton had one of his best times and qualified in the 1600m run. Several athletes had their best times all year. DeAaron Isaacs had one of his best meets this year with two firsts in the hurdles. We are looking forward to see what we can do in the regionals.”

Other local teams fared as follows: Girls – Dixie 6th, TCN & TVS 7th (tie). Boys - Dixie 4th. TCN – no points.
