TRACK IS OVER FOR MOST but there is still activity on the Miamisburg track. One can tell this by the hurdles that are moved around from one location to another. But the biggest activity is down at the pole vault area where vaulters are already thinking about next year and one vaulter is preparing for the nationals. We say “good luck” to Bob Arledge, our 82 year old athlete who is getting ready to defend his national title!!!
MIAMISBURG AT THE STATE MEET It is a two day meet with qualifying on Friday and the finals on Saturday. We were thrilled to hit the triple crown by getting all three events to the finals. How exciting to see Brooklyn Mikesell on the podium with the 300 hurdles on Saturday with another school record!!!
THE GIRLS ARE DISTRICT RUNNERS-UP and they came home with a very nice trophy and lots of regional qualifiers. The boys also had a lot of regional qualifiers including sophomore pole vaulter Noah Pastrana who pulled off a big upset in winning the districts by a full foot!!!
THE GIRLS ARE GWOC CHAMPIONS!!! We never thought we would be able to type that headline but it is true. The Vikings held off a big charge from Lebanon and Springboro to pull out only the second league championship in the history of the school. It has been a big season with meets at home and also at Valley View, Centerville, Springboro, Wayne, Hilliard Davidson, Hamilton, Troy, Butler and Winton Woods. How exciting to see a new school records in the steeplechase by Anna Flores and Cole Supp!!!
WE ARE STILL SMILING ABOUT INDOOR STATE where some Miamisburg athletes made all-state. How exciting it was to see Brooklyn Mikesell finish fourth in the 60 meter hurdles. What a great race. This seals her entrance someday into the Miamisburg Athletic Hall of Fame. Then our girls 4x400 relay team lined up and gave us another great race. Back and forth we went with other schools but Brooklyn brought us home to win the heat and finish 7th overall. Congratulations to Miss Mikesell as well as Jasaan Deering, Kara Graeser and Ocean Morris for their tremendous performance. Meanwhile, everyone else is getting ready for outdoor season. The snow is melted off the track and we are having great weather. Look out GWOC South!!!
DISTRICT CHAMPIONS! It was a crazy crazy day at Miami Valley Career Technical Center. When all the smoke cleared (from the close competition) Springboro had 52 points, Troy had 51 points and Miamisburg had 51 points. The low score wins so we at least had second place. The winner would be the one with the fastest sixth runner. Guess who that was? Once again, two weeks in a row, Miamisburg wins a big meet thanks to their depth. What a great season! Now it is on to regionals up in Troy.
GWOC CHAMPIONS! This doesn’t happen every year, especially when your #1 and #2 runners are injured. But somehow the girls pulled through and won anyways. It was only the second league win in girl xc history and it was the first in nearly 30 years (1986). The boys did pretty well too and finished second but they can boast of the runner of the year, Ryan Slaughenhaupt! He took it to the top runners and won the GWOC south title. Next up are the Districts and Regionals.
Double winners at Piqua Invitational How exciting to see the good performaces at Piqua. Special congrats to the girls team which not only had a perfect score (meaning the top five runners) but they had the first NINE runners in the meet. Wow!!! Next up - the league championships. GWOC is at Centerville.
Miamisburg girls move to #10 in the state There was a lot of press recently about the football team being undefeated and #17 in the state. Interestingly enough, they aren’t even the best fall sport at Miamisburg. Congrats to the girls who moved up to #10!!!
Tiffin Running Carnival Miamisburg harriers had personal best after personal best at this great meet. The highlight was the fourth place finish by the girl’s team that included wins over the many state ranked teams including the 13th best team in Ohio! Great job runners.
Miamisburg Invitational It was a hot day but there was still lots of good running at the home invitational. The girls handily won their race and later were voted the 20th best team in the state! They also won an internet vote on the Ohio team performance of the week on JJHuddle.com
