Weekend Wrap-Up: Feb. 7th

Cedarville Yellow Jacket HS Tune-Up - Boys Results / Girls Results

Field events were the big draw at second Cedarville meet of the year. Cedarville even had to delay the start of full track races, like the 4x800m relay, because the high jump competition ran long due to the fact that there were great jumpers still going for higher heights.  On the boys side, three athletes were jumping with the bar at 6'8", with Hilliard Darby senior, Tyler McIntosh, taking home top honors by clearing at that height, which also ties McIntosh with nine others for the sixth best jump in the nation.  On the girls side, three girls jumped at 5'6", but unfortunately none cleared that height.  Withrow senior Alyssa Hall won the event on fewer misses over Fairmont senior Sarah Vonderbrink and Pam Showman, a sophomore from Ursuline Academy.

In the shot put, senior, Curt Smith, of Chillicothe threw an impressive 58'7", which ties him for the tenth best throw in the nation.

In the sprints, junior, Demoye Bogle of Wayne won the 55m dash in time of 6.47 seconds, tying him for the top mark in Ohio this year.  Bogle also finished second in the 200m dash, in a time of 22.78.  Top honors in the 200m dash went to William Henry, a junior from Trotwood-Madison who ran a 22.39.

On the girls side, the best performance came from Wayne senior, Alexis Thomas, who threw the 20lbs. Weight 51'0", the eighth best throw in the natio this year.  Thomas' throw leads the state by an impressive four feet and is almost twelve feet farther than the next girl in division I.  Thomas also took second in the shot put with a toss of 36'4".  Woodmore senior, Erin Pendleton, flip-flopped spots with Thomas in the throws.  Pendleton took home the gold in shot put with a heave of 40'3".  And in the weight throw Pendleton's toss of 46'2" was good for second place.
