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.
