The Carrollton track program coaching staff added the East Palestine Relays to the schedule after weather forced the cancellation of the West Holmes Invitational earlier this month. After the event, they were glad they did.

The Warrior girls team set a meet record and placed third in a field of 16 teams. The boys team placed fifth in a field of 16 teams.

“Despite missing a number of senior athletes to the senior trip to New York City, the younger athletes really stepped up to the challenge and excelled, “said Coach Mike Aukerman.

The girls sprint relay team of Bri Burkhart, Layna Pasiuk, Cindy Lewis and Micah Donley set the meet record by nearly two seconds with a winning time of 1:53.66. The girls ran a 100-100-200-400.

The boys team of Ryan Walker, Bryce Carte, Noah Carrothers and Calob Dalton placed third in the same event. Also winning were the girls sprint relays in the 4×100 and 4×200 as they remained undefeated on the season.

The 4×1 team is comprised of Burkhart, Pasiuk, Lewis and Donley. They nearly broke the school record of 51.2 by running 51.37.

The 4×2 was made up ofBurkhart, Lewis, Mac Tubaugh and Donley.  Their time of 1:49.79 puts both sprint relays as the top ranked times in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference. 

Placing second were the girls shot relay, as well as the disc relay, which were both represented by the Bentley sisters – Alivia and Amanda.

The boys shot relay of Jace Miles and Noah Carrothers also placed second.  Finishing third was the boys distance medley of Alex Carrothers, Noah Carrothers, Evan Days and Jon Russell.

Mac Tubaugh and Jayle Soloman also finished 3rd in the high jump relay.

Earlier in the week, the girls team fell to Louisville 79-49 in a regular season NBC meet.

Alivia Bentley set new school records in both the shot put and discus. She threw the discus 139’2” and the shot put 47’.

“Alivia is one of the hardest working kids I have ever been around,” said Coach Aukerman. “I am so glad she is putting all that effort and dedication into her craft.”

Even in the loss, he said there were many reasons for the team to be happy.

“The sprint relays put down some great times and Micah Donley had a great night, winning the short sprint (100) and long sprint (800),” he said.

Other winners for the Warriors included: Pasiuk 100-meter hurdles (17.1); Jaci Pridemore in the high jump; 4×200 relay team of Burkhart, Kody Schandel, Rinkes and Lewis; (1:51.5); and the 4×100 relay team of Burkhart, Schandel, Rinkes and Lewis (52.5).
