TRACK: W-G relay wins state title

June 6, 2011

COLUMBUS — It was almost over before it had barely begun.
Now it is over.
And the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers girls 400-meter relay team is the fastest in the land.
The Tigers erased the memory of an almost disastrous district preliminary race that could have ended their tournament run with a dominant performance in the Division III state final Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.
W-G’s foursome of senior Abbey Gray, junior Morgan Horn, senior Frankie James and junior Ivy Horn was virtually flawless.
“Our handoffs were probably the best they’ve ever been,” Gray said.

TRACK NOTES: Horn faces familiar foes at state

June 6, 2011

COLUMBUS — Waynesfield-Goshen junior Ivy Horn is used to being at the front of the pack.
And after three straight trips to the Division III state track meet, she’s used to sharing the front with some familiar faces — Rittman’s Crystal Barber and Sidney Lehman’s Gretchen Walter.
Horn finished second in the 100 dash on Saturday with a time of 12.48, just .06 behind Walter and .01 ahead of Barber.
Then in the 200, she finished third with a 25.81 behind Barber (25.44) and Walter (25.64).
“I knew it was going to be me, Gretchen and Crystal up there,” Horn said.

Remembering their roots

June 6, 2011

The 211 members of the Wapakoneta High School Class of 2011 were encouraged to reach for their dreams and no matter where they end up to never forget where they came from.
“I encourage you to remember where you’ve been no matter where you’re heading,” Wapakoneta City Schools Board of Education President Willie Sammetinger said.
His was a message that was echoed by several speakers during commencement exercises Saturday morning in the Wapakoneta High School gymnasium.
Graduates also were encouraged several times to make a difference.
