PRESEASON CONDITIONING AND INDOOR MEETS Can you believe it is the middle of February? A large crew has been training hard for the outdoor season. This is the largest group to ever be involved in preseason training at the Burg. Bowling Green is our next indoor meet. Special congratulations to our 4x800 team of Parker Hines, Clay Campbell, Ethan Johnson and Mason Wyss. They won their event at the highly competitive Cedarville indoor meet recently. Looks like hard work pays off!!! They most certainly have been working hard. Colin Dillon also has been working hard and finished third in the high hurdles at the same meet. Mohammed Hamayel did well in the pole vault and we had some sprinters also performing quite nicely. Tyler Johnson placed high the high jump. Congrats to our two girl pole vaulters who cleared several heights and moved up the all-time indoor list.
TURKEY TROT A large contingent of current runners, former runners, coaches and fans were present for the Turkey Trot in downtown Miamisburg. There were people here from all over.....even from Alaska!!! How great to see everyone again. There were also a number of runners at the big NIKE regionals in Terra Haute, Indiana. The end of the year banquet is also now complete. It was a great night of awards with terrific food.
DISTRICTS AND REGIONALS It was not the prettiest performance of the year for both the boy’s and girl’s teams but they got the job done at districts. Both squads qualified for the regional meet at Troy. Congrats to the Viking harriers. They came together and gave it their best at regionals and both finished a solid 15th. Congratulations to both squads.
ONE FOR THE AGES Miamisburg nearly pulled off a big upset over Centerville to win the District championship. But our bid fell just two points short. What a meet for the Vikings. We ran our tails off and had Centerville in trouble but they scored big in the 3200 and 800 to pull off the win. Our 4x400 team nearly saved the day with a giant anchor by Tyler Johnson but he fell slightly short at the end to finish second (after passing three people) and finish second in the meet. We don’t want to miss saying something about Jasaan Deering who won the 300 hurdles going away and then came back in the 4x400 and took our team from 7th to 1st. Wow!!!
GWOC WEST CHAMPS - BACK TO BACK The boys came home with a nice trophy for winning their division of the GWOC!!! Congratulations to the guys and also to the girls who competed so well, also. It was a nice finish to the season after all those rained out meets. Next up is the big District meet. Hopefully that goes well and then the Regionals and finally the State.
