DSC_2309With Coshocton and River View represented girls and boys, you can be proud of our local track and field athletes that earned a trip to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus for the state track meet held this past weekend.

For Coshocton, senior Nicki Carling finished sixteenth in the girls 100 meter dash. Way to go Nicki! Just getting to state is a tremendous accomplishment!

For River View, freshman Kristen Douglass competed in the 300 meter hurdles, finishing fifteenth with a time of 48.72.

On the boys side, the River View 400 meter distance relay quad of Garrett Gee, Brandon Adams, Andy Parsons and Trevis Stamper competed well, coming in fourteenth in the preliminary round. Way to go boys representing our community.

Trevis Stamper came in ninth in the 300 meter hurdle finals, just missing the podium. Stamper is a junior. The photo is Stamper competing at the regional meet in Athens. Photo courtesy of mark Knicely.

Andy Parsons, a junior at River View, came in fourteenth in the 400 meter dash preliminaries.

River View junior Brandon Adams competed in two individual events, the 100 meter dash and the 200 meter dash. The speedy junior proved his mettle in the 100 meter dash, coming in fourteenth. The 200 meter dash was where Adams shined, placing seventh in the preliminaries and ninth in the finals, six one-hundreths of a second behind the eighth place finisher. Way to go Brandon!

Angie Adams, Brandon’s mom, said of the experience, “I was excited for the kids to make it that far. You knew they were excited and felt good about the experience. I’m proud of all of them. They got to see the results of their hard work and sticking to the plan.”

All of these athletes, their families, coaches and parents deserve recognition for their efforts and in reaching the state level.
