OHS track wins place on podium at State meet

Peter Hix on podium for 1600m 2nd place win.

On Friday and Saturday, athletes from Oakwood High School ran at the State Track Meet at Jesse Owens Stadium in Columbus. On Friday the 4x800m relay team of Kelsey McDonald, Julia Sizek, Hannah French and Lucy Schafer ran to an eighth place finish and a spot on the podium. Schafer ran down several runners in the last leg and leaned at the line to finish ahead of the team from Cincinnati Archbishop McNicholas by one-hundredth of a second. This is the second year in a row that the Oakwood girls 4x800m relay team finished on the podium at the state meet. Saturday, Sizek closed out her OHS running career with a 13th place finish in the 3200m Run.

In individual competition on Saturday, Peter Hix ran a strategic race and finished 2nd in the 1600m run. His time of 4:18.28 was a new school record breaking the record he set last week at the regional meet. This was Hix’s second trip to the state meet. The Jacks’ 4x800m relay team of Troy Gould, Chris Wolcott, Keith Mueller and Peter Hix finished thirteenth.

The athletes would like to thank their coaches, Mark Stiver, Paul Buford, David Dobson, Carla Greene and Dean Harmony for the guidance and patience during another great year for the Oakwood High School Track and Field Team.

From Oakwood, but representing the Miami Valley School in Division III, Keta Burke-Williams, finished fourth in the long jump with a personal best leap of 17 feet and 7.25 inches. She was also on the 4x100 relay team that finished sixth.
