GWOC divisionals and Stephanie Mee

Posted Thursday, May 10, 2012 by Mike Hout
Just like the weather, it was an up and down day for the Vikings up in Piqua.  We arrived at their new facility amid sunshine and clear skies.  Shortly after we were there we felt some rain drops.  The sky looked dark over us.  Then the sun was out again.  Then we felt rain drops again as the sky grew gray and the temperature cooled.  A few minutes later the sun was shining and it was hot out.  What a crazy day.  It all ended with cooler and cooler temperatures and everyone finally was scurrying to get more and more clothes to try to stay warm.

Congratulations to Tyler Ikert who won the GWOC South in the shot put.  Congrats also to Zak Kruer who won the GWOC South pole vault (although he did not realize he had won it until it was nearly time to go home).    The boys 4x800 team was second and Michael Melko was second in the 1600.  Others who just missed championships but will be back at Friday's finals include Kruer in the 300 hurdles (even with a fall), the girls 4x400 relay team, the boys 4x200 team, the boys 4x400 relay team and Brooklyn Mikesell in the 300 hurdles.  Who did I miss?

The heart of the Miamisburg team was shown by the fantastic leg of the 4x400 run by Stephanie Mee.  After taking the baton down to the other schools, she put us back in contention with a very nice run.  Earlier in the day the Better Business Bureau honored her in the newspaper and what they said about her is a testament to the fine people on our team: Stephanie Mee is a hard working young lady who makes school work her top priority.  Friendly to others, she's sincere and exhibits strong character.  She's prepared and willing to accept challenges, seeing obstacles as a way to improve her skills.  Her activities have helper her develop into a responsible and caring person.  She's the cross country and track and field teams' senior captain, swim team member, student government senator and participates in the National Honor Society and church youth group.  The integrity, work ethic, honesty and determination she displays are exemplary.  Her skill and creativity earned her first place in a painting competition where she received a Scholastic Art and Writing Gold Key Award.  Her dedication and passion are evident as she volunteers at Kettering Medical Center and does mission work.  She also works as a lifeguard.  Your BBB is pleased to honor Stephanie as a Student of Integrity.
