J. Patrick Eaken

At the Northern Buckeye Conference track meet, Genoa dominated all four throwing events.
        As a result, the Comets swept the “Field Athlete of the Meet” awards as senior Noah Koch took the top boys honor and senior Alexis Bryer took the top girls honor, each winning two throwing events.
        Koch won the shot put with a toss of 54-3½, just over two feet short of the league record set by Logan Bryer in 2014 (56-6¼). Koch also won the discus with a throw of 164-2. That record is also owned by Logan Bryer (173-6), which was set in 2014.
        Genoa senior Christian Pearson won the boys long jump with a leap of 20-10¾ and the 100 meter dash (11.45). Genoa senior Sean Hoeft won the 1,600 in 4:39.58. Woodmore junior Cole Sotak won the pole vault, clearing 14 feet.
        In the girls meet, Alexis Bryer won this year’s shot put (36-9) and discus (100-8). The NBC shot put record is owned by Woodmore athlete Annalicia Torres (42-3¾, set in 2017) and the discus by Megan Pendleton (138-1, 2013).
        The Lake girls won two NBC relay events. The 4x200 relay team of junior Colette Askins, freshmen Ava Ayers and Olivia Hayward and senior Mya Staczek won in 1:51.18. In the 4x100, Ayers, Hayward, senior Courtney Johnson and Staczek won in 50.94. In addition, Johnson won the long jump in 16-10.
        The Woodmore 4x800 meter relay team of seniors Nora LaMunyon and Maddie Thatcher and sophomores Olivia Thatcher and Ava Beam won in 10:30.77.
