The track and field athletes in the Muskingum Valley League couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque night to compete in the league championships. A nice night lead to a considerable amount of records falling in several events.
On the girls side, the Sheridan girls broke a record in the first event of the night, the 3200M Relay. Those girls didn’t just break the record, they shattered it by 17 seconds. Sheridan senior thrower Sarah Clow set the girl’s shotput record as well with a throw of 42′-8".25, capping four straight shot put titles with a meet record. Sophomore Haley Gregory of John Glenn broke her own record in the 300M hurdles as well, finishing the meet with 32.5 points, falling just short of West Muskingum’s Lauren Paul’s 36 points.
For the boys, the combination of Mitchell Fouch, Glenn Whaley, Drew VanWinkle, and Zane Shumar for Sheridan broke two relay records in the 400M and 800M relays. The top point scorer for the boys was John Glenn Senior distance runner Zach Geiger, who won the 1600M and 3200M runs for the fourth straight time in his high school career, adding to that the 800M run and a share of third place in the 1600M relay for 31.5 points.
