CCC League Meet Results
By J. C. Tilton

The boys division was won by Bethel and the girls division was won by Miami East. Locally, TVS boys finished third by just 5 points, with TCN finishing 12th. The TVS Girls finished 5th, just ahead of TCN who was 6th. Juli Accurso of Miami East set a meet record in the 800m run with a time of 2:19.3. Nathen Mogul of Tri Village set a record in the 3200m run with a time of 9:56.1. And Freshman Leah Dunivan of Miami East set a record in the shot put with a throw of 36’1.5”.

The Twin Valley South Boys team finished in third place. But I think that coach Fahrenholtz would have liked to have done better. I first asked him about the dearth of sprinters. “During prelims, the baseball team was playing in districts, so we didn’t have several of those athletes. And Steve Balthis was sick, so he couldn’t compete at all. So we had no one in the 100m and that took out one of sprint relay teams. Jordan Krickenbarger (pole vault) has an injured back and could only clear 11’6” which may have been his lowest this season. So we lost a lot of points on the first day.”

But he went to say that, “The kids who did participate did great today.
George Holman in the 1600m won and did it with his best time. Josh Hemmelgarn had a personal best. Nick Guehring put on a show – running the 3200m run and turning around to run in the 4X400m relay. Jacob Hemmelgarn scored a lot of points for us. It was one of those meets where we didn’t have everyone, but everyone that we did have I was really proud of – they did a nice job. Districts are next week and we hope to have everyone and go after it.”

He further stated that, “The 4X100m and the 4X200m relay teams really ran well today”, said girls track coach Mabry when asked about the meet. “The 4X200m team took about 3 seconds off their best time. And the 4X100m team had their best time too. The two 200m runners also had their best times.”

“The girls did a great job, getting 6th place overall which is an improvement from last year,” stated the North Track Coach. “Considering where we came from, I am very, very pleased. Myranda Schoen - she did well with the disc and shot – she threw 32 feet today to finish 2nd and was 3rd in the discus. She was also 2nd place in the 100m, but had to scratch from the 200m. Makayla Conley was third in the 400m, and the 4X800m that got third. The 4X400m got sixth. So we had some good finishes today. Now we are still struggling on the guys side, with a lot of freshman and sophomores trying to run varsity. But we hope to hang onto them and in 2-3 years we will have a decent program with the guys.”

Finishes by local athletes. Girls 4x800 Meter Relay: TCN 3rd, TVS 4th. Boys 4x800 Meter Relay: TVS 2nd. Boys 110m Hurdles: 4th Jacob Hemmelgarn TVS, 6th Jordan Krickenbarger TVS. Girls 100m Dash: 2nd Myranda Schoen TCN, 3rd Jessica Hickey TVS. 5th Kathrine Leach TVS. The 4X400m relay team is coming around. The 4X800m team took almost 20 seconds off of their best time. Abbey Voge did a personal best in the pole vault. So they are all peaking. We still have a few nagging injuries for next weeks district meet, but we are hoping that everyone will be ready to go.
