Regionals

Posted Sunday, June 02, 2013 by Mike Hout
Here are the complete results of the regionals where a first in Miamisburg history may have occured.  While the boys 4x400 relay team was attempting to set a school record, Lexi Williams was also attempting to set a school record in the girls pole vault.  Sadly, while laying in the pit on her last jump, the bar wiggled off.

And here are the comments in the June 1st newspaper about our boys 4x400 relay team where the headlines read "Miamisburg relay team, Beavercreek's Ekpo going to state"

Miamisburg senior Andrew Denlinger raised his arms toward the ominous sky as he crossed the finish line at the Division I regional track meet Friday night at Dayton's Welcome stadium.

Second place never felt so good.

Denlinger turned in an anchor leg of 49.2 in the 1,600 meter rely to close the night.

"I was excited, very excited," Denlinger said after the Vikings advanced to the state meet wiht a school record 3:20.23.  "It is nice that since we came this far, that we made it to state.  I have always dreamed of running at Jesse Owens (track, site of the state meet)."

While Denlinger was the anchor, Greg Hubbard was the catalyst.  Hubbard turned in a season best split of 49.6 to move the Vikings into a chase for second on the second leg.

"For a first-time runner, he has come so far," Denlinger said of Hubbard.  "He was the missing piece."

The race, won by Mason, featured six of the top eight times in the state in the event.

"Our regional is so strong," Denlinger said.

Miamisburg wasn't the only one breaking through Friday night in a meet that was delayed 24 minutes by rain......
