Morgan Hallett (Norton 2024)
As the reigning OHSAA Division II Outdoor State Champion in the discus and shot put, Hallet continued much of this success at Eagle Elite. She finished 1st in discus and 4th in shot put and was overall the most dominant thrower of the day. Currently, she has the Ohio #1 ranking in discus followed by a close #2 ranking in shot put.
Caleigh Richards (Maplewood 2024)
Richards has dominated both the cross country and track scene over these past few years. As a two-time DIII Cross Country State Champion and 1600m State Champion this past outdoor season, she did not disappoint with her 1600m performance at Eagle Elite. Almost breaking the 5-minute barrier with a time of 5:02.47, she broke her own meet record from last year.
Colleen Johnson (Medina 2023)
Johnson soared to a new PR at Eagle Elite in the pole vault by setting a mark of 12-0. As she continues to climb the ranks every week, there is a lot more that she can accomplish this season.
Savannah Dennison (Mentor 2023 / University of Cincinnati)
Savannah Dennison completed a successful distance double, placing 2nd in the 1600m and racing back to the 800m title. Her continued success over her high school career shows no signs of stopping this outdoor season.
Noah Johnson (Hoover 2023 / Youngstown State University)
Another elite performance was demonstrated by Noah Johnson in the boys 3200m run. In a highly competitive field, he was able to claim the top spot by running 9:17.83. As a versatile distance runner, there is a lot that he can accomplish this season in many events.
