Girls - (finished 9th as a team with 23 points)
Nicole Greegor - 2 events - 100m Hurdles (3rd, 14.90) and 300m Hurdles (4th, 45.52)

Record Falls
Nicole's efforts in 100m hurdles set a new OHS track record and bested a mark that has stood for more than 20 years.  Her 14.90 time tied the record set by Jenny Musser in 1987, but Gregor's may be the new standard since today's time was digitally captured (hundredths of seconds are used).  Gregor's 45.52 was just off Musser's school record of 45.34 set in 1988.

Good work everyone....and congrats to ALL of the regional qualifiers.  I know some were VERY close to making it to Columbus but just missed.  In no way does that diminish their performances today and all throughout the season.

Congrats also to Coach Ayers & Mosley and all their assistants.  Lots of hours and time away from their family, but they deserve plenty of thanks and credit as well.
