COLUMBUS – Always the bridesmaids, never the bride – not anymore.

Just minutes apart, Carrollton seniors Maddie Dunlap and Cole Lovett swept the 1,600-meter runs to become Carrollton’s first ever outdoor track champions (boy or girl) Saturday at the Division II OHSAA Track and Field Championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

“Today is our day,” Dunlap said. “We have been running our easy runs together, and we’ve been talking about this moment since, honestly, our freshman year.”

Dunlap, getting her win in less than five minutes (4:57.13), helped to inspire Lovett.

“She finished up and I am like, oh my gosh, she broke five minutes,” Lovett said. “She has been working so hard to get under five. I’m like, ok, it’s my turn. If she can do it, I can do it. I can PR. I can do this.”

“To do it in the same event is just amazing. We have both worked so hard for this.”
