FPS staff report

Carrollton High School boys track
The Warriors Kenny Beresh won the high jump with a jump of 6-feet, 2 inches to advance to the regional meet.

It was a record breaking day for the Carrollton boys 1,600-meter relay team at the West Holmes Division II district track meet held last Thursday and Saturday.

Last Saturday, the team of Brandon Walker, Kyle Baker, Brandon Burrier and Robbie Smith ran a time of 3:29.7 to win the district championship and in doing so broke the old record set in 1982 by Darin Abel, Paul Altier, Dan Sparks and John Harter.

As a team, the Warriors placed fifth overall out of 14 teams with 63 points.

“We performed very well,” said head coach Larry Cogan. “We had several outstanding performances and were very competitive.”

The Warriors also got first place finishes from Kenny Beresh in the high jump with a jump of 6-feet, 2 inches and Walker in the 300 hurdles with a time of 40.42.

Placing second was Seth Dolvin in the shot put with a throw of 44-feet, 9 inches and the 3,200-meter relay team of Baker, Joey Harter, Walker and Smith.

Carrollton did not have any third or fourth place finishers.

Placing fifth was Baker in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:03.28.

Placing sixth was Burrier in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.16, Harter in the 3,200 with a time of 10:21.62 and Brian Myer in the long jump with a jump of 19-feet, 8-inches.

The 400-meter relay team of Burrier, Dan Irwin, Aaron Wey and Bryant Harris placed seventh with a time of 47.87. Placing eighth was Irwin in the 300 hurdles with a time of 44.05 and Myer in the 400-meter dash with a time of 55.51.

Sandy Valley won the overall team title with 89.5 points. Indian Valley was second with 74.5 points, Tusky Valley third with 65.5 and Minerva fourth with 64 points.

On the girls side, the Lady Warriors finished in 10th with 37 points.

Carrollton High School girls track
Carrollton’s April Sisk will compete at the regional level in both the shot and discus. At last week’s District competition she placed first in the shot put and second in the discus to advance toward the state meet.

“I was happy with a lot of the performances, said head coach Chris Woolf. “Even though we did not advance a lot of girls there were a lot of personal records and season bests.  We look forward to having a lot of athletes back next year and hope to make a little more noise in a couple of areas.”

Sophomore April Sisk had a first and second place finish for the Warriors.

Sisk won the shot put with a throw of 37-feet, 8 inches and placed second in the discus with a throw of 110-feet 4 inches.

Sophomore Kelsey Cogan also placed first for the Warriors in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 11:48.

Junior Renee Davis placed sixth in the 100 hurdles with a time of 17.64 and seventh in the 300 hurdles with a time of 51.25.

Sophomore Kailey Patterson placed eighth in the long jump with a jump of 13-feet, 9-inches.

The top four placers in each event advanced to the regional meet, which will be held Thursday and Saturday at Meadowbrook High School in Byesville. Action will get underway Thursday at 4 p.m. with the field events and 4:30 for the running events. Saturday, field events start at 11:30 a.m. and running events 12:30 p.m.
