First Cross Country meet is this Saturday The season opens for the Viking Harriers this Saturday (August 23rd) at the Centerville Night Lights meet. We will be cheering the whole team on but most especially our very own Kristina Steingass and Hannah Steingass, members of St. Jacob!
Pole Vault Camp Miamisburg had representatives at the recent Pole Vault Camp at Centerville. How great to get tips from Olympian Jan Johnson. And how exciting to see that Miamisburg’s Lexi Williams received a special award at the end of the camp!
Coach Jenny Schoenberger resigns We were saddened to hear the news that Coach Jenny has resigned as head track and field coach and head cross country coach for Miamisburg. We wish her the best in the coming years. A new coach has been selected and we look forward to meeting Jeremy Wysocki, a Heidelberg grad. Go Student Princes!
Regionals We gave it our best shot but no one qualified for the state meet. Brooklyn Mikesell was the closest....VERY close in fact as she was only a hair away from making it. Still, she set a new school record in the race and then came back to set another record in the 300 hurdles. Both boys and girls 4x400 relay teams scored for Miamisburg and Joey Gray scored in the discus.
Districts The season is quickly coming to a finish. We gave it our best at our District meet which features a lot of really good competition. Thankfully, we have a number of people who are heading on to Regionals. Special congratulations to Brooklyn Mikesell for winning the 100 meter hurdles. Lexi Williams tied the school pole vault record again and our girls 4x800 and 4x400 team broke the school record once again!!!
GWOC championships This is one of the toughest conferences in the country so how exciting to have a number of league champions. Pastor Hout was especially thrilled to be able to coach the boy’s champ and the girl’s champ. Way to go Bailey Mergler and Lexi Williams. Lexi also tied the school record with her winning jump!
Mason Invitational This is always a very tough meet with schools coming from half a state away. Placing in it is a tough challenge but we were thankful to have some placers and another school record in the girls 4x800!
Wayne Relays We had our ups and downs with the Wayne Relays this past weekend. One of the big ups was a new school record by our girls 4x800 team. Great work, girls!!!
Dayton Relays were so exciting. There were four school records broken. The girls 4x1600 meter relay, the girls shot put relay, the girls 4x400 relay and the boys pole vault relay. We are making nice progress!
Coaches Classic in Cincy This giant meet brings together amazing athletes from all over the Cincinnati area. It is exciting when we can bring home some medals. Congrats to Brooklyn Mikesell for her fine second place and our girl shot putters on their solid team effort in bringing home lots of points for the team.
Outdoor meets at Wayne and Northmont during our spring break. It is great to get the outdoor season rolling even if it is sometimes cool and wet. We have the big Coaches Classic next week!
Cedarville Indoor Track Meet It was a busy weekend with the giant meet at Cedarville College. We had a number of people involved and they looked pretty good. Nice job Greg Hubbard. Good running Jordan Townsley. Great work to all the others who are training during the week and getting ready for outdoor season. Can you believe we have had over sixty people to many of our practices?
Double Regional Qualifiers!!! Congratulations to both the boys and the girls cross country team. They both qualified for next week’s regional competition at Troy. The girls did a fine job in the mud and advanced with a third place finish. The boys pulled off a muddy upset on the wet course in finishing fourth. Good job Burg!
Piqua Invitational We are the champions!!! Both the Miamisburg boys and girls team brought home championship trophies! Despite the rain, Jordan Townsley slid her way to a big victory in the girls race. In an exciting boys race our freshman Ryan Slaughenhaupt ran neck and neck and was just outleaned at the finish. Ryan ran a personal best time despite the rain and so did Ocean Morris.
