peebles is on a distinguished road
Some surprises and some disappointments at the Austintown Div II Regional. A record was set in the girls 100 prelims by Mia Knight of Beachwood at 11.90. She was also very close to the record in the 200. Maybe the conditions will cooperate and she can get that on Saturday. Salem girls and boys did not qualify anybody for the final in the 400 which was a bit of a surprise as they were more than capable of doing so. Ke'aijhan Strong of Tuslaw looks tough again this year in the 400, striding to a 57.91. She looks fit enough to break the record she set last year. She is one of those athletes who is just plain fun to watch. Salem girls finished 3rd in the 4x8 at 9:38.2 (their best this season) behind Chagrin Falls winning 9:25 effort and just ahead of fourth place Woodridge and fifth place SVSM. Salem girls also qualified third in the 4x4 at 4:04.73. All eight teams are separated by just a few seconds so it should be a great 4x4 final. The boys 4x800 was a battle to the finish with the top four separated by just eight tenths of a second. CVCA won in 8:01.06, Salem was fourth in 8:01.88 just a few tenths behind SVSM and one second in front of fifth place Orange. Salem boys ran by far their best 4x100 of the season qualifying for the final with the third best time of 43.84. A lot of fast teams out there though that ran just to qualify. We'll see what happens in the final. Salem qualified fourth for the 4x4 final in 3:27, but Warrensville and CVCA looked strong battling it out in heat one, cruising to 3:24's. Salem's Cooper Stockman continues to improve in the discus. He qualified for state by finishing third at 146-7 behind Haywood of Perry who threw 160 on his first attempt for an easy victory. Good luck to all the athletes in their attempt to qualify for state.
