The Warriors struggled at the Olmsted Falls Bulldogs relays on Friday. The boys finished sixth out of seven teams and the girls finished eighth out of eight teams. The teams did have some bright spots, though. The boys 4×800 of Beard, Gillmore, Wilkinson, and Miles took a first place with a time of 8:32, while the 4×400 of Beard, Gillmore, Solaman, and Roland was able to finish second with a time of 3:32. One of their best vaulters was unable to be present, but Zach Jones and Nathan Seelbach pick up the slack with two personal records and squeezed out a fifth-place finish. Rory Juhn placed second in the 110 run, with a time of 15.9. The boys shot putters of Boepple, Harris, and Thompson also managed a relay of 123′ 3.75″ for second place.
The girls, with limited numbers, managed to pull out some bright spots. Hanna Powers ran the shuttles, pole vaulted by herself in a relay for sixth place, while also running the 4×200, and 4×400. Sophmore Stephanie Miller ran to a fifth place finish with a time of 13.3 in the 100m. The relay team of Rehor, McQuate, Lyman, and Main took fourth in the 4×1600, while coming back with the same girls minus Main for Kilbane in the 4×800 for fifth place.
