State Meet Division II Preview

In the team competition, Akron Buchtel is the overwhelming favorite. The fight for second should be between Kettering Alter and Mantua Crestwood. Crestwood’s Cassandra Schenk is attempting the impossible, a distance quadruple (it has been attempted only once; her former teammate Bridget Franek successfully pulled it off last year). Meet records in danger of being broken are the high jump (West Geauga’s Katelyn Williams) and the pole vault (Indian Valley’s Kayla Caldwell).

Heath is my pick to win the team title with Salem second. If either of these two falter, next in line are a couple of northwest Ohio teams—Eastwood and Sandusky Perkins. Several meet records could be broken; the 800 (Salem’s Patrick Gorby), the 4x800 relay (Woodridge), and the high jump (Napoleon’s Ryan Fleck).
