The boys cross country team appears to be hitting their stride at just the right time. This past weekend many PR’s (personal records) were set at the Hilliard “Darby Dash” cross country invitational. The boys team will need to carry this momentum into Saturday’s OCC Championship Meet. Central’s boys finished 7th at Darby and were once again led by junior Austin Smith who placed 10th overall with a new personal best of 16:42. Smith’s finish earned him a “Top 10” award at the meet as well as moving him up to 8th All-Time on Central’s records board. Other scorers for Central included seniors Mitchell McClain (28th, 17:21) and Max Ramsey (47th, 17:38), sophomore Jacob Owens (61st, 17:49), and junior Dominic Letterio (74th, 18:09). Rounding out Central’s top seven were Juniors Shane Hendricks (83rd, 18:19), and Sam Reyes (98th, 18:38).
The OCC Championships “Buckeye Division” will be held at Hilliard Bradley High School this coming Saturday. The boys varsity race will begin at 11:30 AM following the girls varsity race at 11:00 AM.
