NCAA DII Indoor Nationals

It was a big weekend for Ohio-based schools and Ohio-based athletes at the NCAA DII Indoor Track and Field Championships held in Pittsburg, KS. Highlights included:

Ashland men winning the team championship with 38 pts, 1 pt. ahead of Adams State. Tiffin men were 3rd with 34 pts, and Ashland's league rival Grand Valley State was 4th with 33.25 pts. Ashland needed a little bit of magic in the 4x400 to secure their team title: Trailing 37-34, they were running from the first of 3 heats, so even if they won their heat, there were 8 teams with better seed times still to race. Ashland made a rather astute move by placing 400m champion Myles Pringle on 3rd leg. He created signficant separation on his leg which meant an easier exchange and a clear track for their anchor. The anchor held off Grand Valley State by a mere .01 second, or else the team championship would've been shared with Adams State. None of the teams from the 2nd heat beat Ashland's time, so the team title was clinched despite all 4 teams from the final heat beating Ashland's time. Individual championships were won by Ohioans in the weight throw and 400m dash. A Findlay athlete also won the shot put, but he is a native of the British V.I.

Adams State women easily outdistanced Grand Valley State 87-64 in the women's team competition. A female Ohioan won a national championship in the 200m dash.

The following athletes with Ohio ties achieved All-America status (I apologize if I missed anyone):
Women:
60m - Kandace Thomas (GlenOak, Adams State), 2nd place
200m - Kandace Thomas, 1st place
800m - Carsyn Koch-Johnson (Cedarville), 7th place. Johnson is a Maine native.
Mile - Andra Lehotay (Sandy Valley, Walsh), 5th place
5000m - Hannah Thompson (GlenOak, Malone), 6th place

Malone: Jasmine Penrod (Morgan), Rebekah Carr (Massillon Perry), Katie Grimes (Canton Heritage Christian), Mackenna Curtis-Collins (Lexington), 6th place
Cedarville: Rachel Sweeney (Xenia Legacy Christian), 8th place. The other 3 members of the relay were from out of state.

Kandace Thomas graduated 8 years ago.....she must have sat out a few years.
By the way if any NAIA teams are interested (age 65) I still have one indoor/outdoor and two XC years left of eligibility.....

Thomas' bio for Adams State indicates that she came from St. Augustine's (NC), but I have no idea how long she was there. She was DII NCAA champion in the 100 and 3rd in the 200 last spring for Adams State. I did a double take when I saw the name, but it was definitely her. She ran a 7.26 60 and 23.57 200 (from the 1st of 2 final heats) this past weekend which isn't too shabby.

A few years ago, Mount Union had a local boy who was OAC freshman of the year despite being 25 or 26. He served in the military for a handful of years before enrolling in college. Additionally, Malone had a local woman on their track team who was in her late 50s or early 60s not too long ago. She was a long distance runner.

Debbie Herman (mother of West Carrollton 1999 grad Christie Herman) competed for two seasons with the Wilmington Quakers and set there then school record in the discus while in her mid-late 30s. Debbie, if my information is correct, is the former Debbie Williams of Tipp City fame in the 1970s, the first Ohio girl to throw over 150'. She had been a national class competitor prior to motherhood, then used what eligibility she had left competing for the then NAIA school Wilmington.

Congratulations on the GWOC having 2 local athletes earning all-american status as freshman. Xavier Marable(Northmont) and Quincy Scott(Springfield) finishing in the top 8 in their respective sports. I do believe that Marable also set the GMAC conference meet record in the 400m dash and Scott set the GMAC conference meet and all-time record in the long jump. Not bad as freshmen

I do believe that in DII you have 8 semesters of eligibility that only get used when you are enrolled in college. Not like in DI when they clock on your eligibility begins on day 1, where you have 8 semesters of eligibility to use over 10 semesters.
