Celina vs St Marys
Tuesday, September 2, Western Buckeye League rivals Celina and Saint Marys met in an old fashion CC dual meet. Dating back to the 1970's when dual meets were prevalent and run at the 2-mile distance, the host Bulldogs and visiting Roughriders traversed the grounds of Celina's Eastview Park, battling for 'Grand lake St Marys' bragging rights. The 2-mile race served as an early season 'speed meet'.
The Boys got things started. Celina's Runnin' Men packed well as they defeated the Roughriders 16-42. CHS crossed the line 1-2-3-4-6, to St Marys' 5-7-9-10-11. Roman Mitchell took top honors, followed by Drew Donovan, Chad Downey, Michael Cron, and Stetson Miller. Aron Crites was 8th, Nathan Robinson 12th, and Nathan Higgins 13th.
The Ladies reversed the 2013 result in which St Marys came out on top. Celina's Runnin' Women claimed Grand Lake supremacy for 2014 with a 23-38 victory. The Bulldog Gals finished 2-3-5-6-7-8-9-11-12-13 as, like the Guys, they packed well. Lauren McDonough took the runner-up spot. Jenna Coon narrowly edged a Lady Rider for the 3rd position, followed by Beth Garwood, Nicole Bowsher, Megan Muhlenkamp, Renee Robinson, Ashley Robinson, Sawyer Weitzel, Audriana Adams, and Emma Keeling. Kenzie Fennig, Daisha Elliott and Nicole Crites formed another pack as they placed 15-16-17. Julie Owens was 23rd and Leah Chen 27th.
