Results vs. Hilliard Heritage

Good evening everyone!

The evening ended as billed, chilly but sunny. I'd like to thank all of the volunteers as well as, if they would stumble upon our blog, the meet officials Mike Althoff and Les Chih (both Dad's of track alums!) as well as the coaching staff from Hilliard Heritage - it's amazing how smoothly and quickly a meet goes when we have great folks helping out!! Also, a quick shout out to both our announcer (who's name escapes me, forgive me) and Mr. Clark, our official scorer and athlete wrangler.

Now the results...they'll be updated as I get them entered (every 3 minutes) :) Great job everyone!!

Today's Meet

Good morning everyone.

It's meet day against Hilliard Hertiage!!
Parents/Athletes please dress for the weather today, it should be a bit warmer than last week but NOT MUCH. You should bring sweat shirts and pants to wear over your uniform. It will be impossible to warm up and stay warm with just shorts and a singlet. 

If you're looking for the events list for today or the tentative list for Big Walnut on Saturday, see the previous post at:

Meet vs. Heritage AND Invitational AT Big Walnut

Good evening!

I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend with their families, the weather looks to be wonderful.

A few things to be looking forward to:
1) I have posted a tentative events list below for our HOME meet versus Hilliard Heritage next Wednesday. Some athletes events are quite filled in but we'll make final decisions together on Monday! Most importantly though is we NEED VOLUNTEERS!! Please, please, please sign up, especially for high jump: read names, record misses and makes, reset the bar when an athlete misses, and raise the bar if everyone clears. The more volunteers we have signed up the smoother (and quicker) the meet will go!
Sign up at the link:

2) I have also posted a tentative events list for the Big Walnut Invitational next Saturday. Some important information about that meet is: buses will depart from Worthingway at 7:45 AM and return to Worthingway at the conclusion of the meet. The meet is hosted at Big Walnut MIDDLE SCHOOL this year, so those of you who had athletes participate in the past, the meet has moved this year (directions below). More information at the bottom of this post.

Good morning,

I must have been delirious recently in thinking we had practice scheduled for tomorrow, the rest of the coaching staff has set me straight (we had an intervention). haha

I don't have time at the moment, I do actually teach/work during the day, but I will be posting results from the meet last night at McCord and will be posting a tentative lineup for the Invitational AT BIG WALNUT.

Have a great day everyone! Looks like a beautiful day for track practice.

Meet Lineup vs. McCord - WEDNESDAY

Good afternoon!

Below is a copy of the events lists for Wednesday, it is current and accurate as of 12:59 PM on Tuesday.

Some things to know for the meet in terms of transportation to and from the meet:
1) All athletes will depart from their home school (KMS, PHX, WMS) and will be transported directly to McCord so, with the exception of Phoenix, there will be no shuttle to Worthingway first.

2) Athletes whom choose to may ride the bus back to Worthingway at the conclusion of the meet to be picked up from there. Athletes whom choose or have made arrangements to be picked up by a parent may do so ONLY after checking out with a member of the coaching staff.

3) Athletes MAY be transported home by a non-family member ONLY if a note, e-mail, or phone call is directed to Coach Stegman or Coach Dentler's attention BEFORE the meet. No note, e-mail, or phone call and the athlete will be REQUIRED to take the bus back to Worthingway.

From what I have seen this should be the most tightly contested track meet we have had against McCord in a number of years. Each time I have seen for their relays are within 2-3 seconds of each of our relays. The weather may be a bit chilly over the next couple of the days but the competition is sure to be HOT!

Results vs. Sells and Pickerington Invitational Information

Good morning everyone!

Results for our meet are at the bottom of this post.
Unfortunately, neither the boys team nor girls team was able to come out on top last night, however there were several remarkable individual performances.
First, the ladies.
First place congratulations go out to Rion Dorwart (discus), Kimmie Carroll (shot put), Jada Mensah (long jump), and Sarah Charley (100H and 200H). Second place shout outs go to Rion Dorwart (high jump), JazzLynn Gaiters (100H), Ellen Guerra (400m), and Sarah Charley (200m). Third placers in the meet last night were Jada Mensah (100H), JazzLynn Gaiters (100m), and CurtLynn Garner (200m). A little side note of impressiveness, our track facility was rebuilt in 2012 with 2013 being the first year we were able to compete on the track. Since then I have been keeping track of site records, those results that are the best at our new facility. Last evening several of those records were broken, many by the Sells team but a few by our own athletes: Kimmie Carroll broke the facility record in shot put with a heave of 28'-11", while Sarah Charley broke the facility records in BOTH hurdling events with an 18.05 in the 100H and a 32.31 in the 200H. Congratulations ladies!

The boys also faced a very impressive Dublin Sells team but, again, there are some notable individual performances with Khalil Jones placing first in the 110H and second in the high jump as well as the 100m; Lloyd Hawthorne placing second in both the shot put and discus; Gabe Conner placing second in the 110H; Clayton Wood and Titan Chen placing second and third in the 200H, respectively; Antwan Howell placing third in the long jump as well as in the 200m; and Arjun Jha placing third in the 1600m.
