TrackFour Warriors Earn All-Ohio Honors

Columbus - After helping the 4×800 relay team claim a runner-up finish in the state track meet Friday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, Warren junior Trent Sayre came back Saturday and placed third in the 1600 to earn a spot on the podium once again.

Sayre was one of four Warriors to earn All-Ohio honors Saturday along with teammates Ethan Yost and Justin Lough, and Erin Bogard on the girls side.

The Warren boys finished ninth as a team in Division II with 19 total points.

Sayre posted a personal record time of 4 minutes, 20.07 seconds to take third. He admitted he pushed it a little too hard the first lap, but was able to make up for it.

Columbus - Warren’s 4×800 boys relay team of Jake Herriott, Trent Sayre, Preston Rowland-Demster and Ethan Yost put the finishing touches on a brilliant 2018 track season Friday at day one of the state meet at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

After setting district and regional records, the foursome shattered the school mark with a time of 7 minutes, 48.03 seconds to place second in the event and earn All-Ohio status. The previous school record was set by by the 2006 4×8 team, which won a state championship.

“The kids ran really well,” said Warren boys coach Neil Brague. “They all gave everything they had. There wasn’t a drop left in any of those boys’ tanks at the end of the race.”

The Warriors were edged out by Heath, which won the title with a time of 7:47.56.

“Their last leg was just really good,” Brague said. “The kids kids gave it everything they had.”

Warren also had its 4×400 relay team competing Friday. Isaiah Kitts, Sayre, Lough and Yost finished 15th with a time of 3:28.00.

Sayre, Lough and Yost will look to score more points for the Warriors Saturday, with Sayre in the 1600, Lough in the 300 hurdles and Yost in the 400. Lough finished eighth in the 300 hurdles preliminaries with a time of 39.28 while Yost was fifth in the 400 prelims at 49.64.

“Ethan broke his own school record in the 400 semifinals,” Brague said. “We’ve been breaking records all year.”

Vincent - Sitting on some stairs at the end of the hallway, six Warren boys track athletes are waiting for practice to begin.

It’s the last week of school, and it would be easy for them to be focused on summer break. Instead, they are laughing and having fun as they chat about what they face at the Division II Ohio State Track & Field Championships at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

“We’re a whole bunch of goofballs,” said Jake Herriott, who’ll be running in the 4×800 on Friday. “We’re having a great time. We’re pretty compatible and we’ve known each other for a while. We’ve competed against each other in school and we just love to joke around.”

Isaiah Kitts, who is in his first year running, said Warren’s coach Neil Brague is a big reason why the Warriors enjoy a special bond.

“He’s got some swag about him. He’s chill. He’s a silent and laid back,” said Kitts, who will compete in the 4×400.

Brague said the season has been enjoyable, especially watching his student-athletes improve each week.

“I’m kind of easy going and I don’t make this out to be rocket science,” Brague said. “If you do the workouts and do what you’re supposed to do everything else comes naturally.”

Vincent - When Millie Ryan was 7 she attended her first Ohio State Track & Field Championships at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

She was there to watch her sister, an All-Ohio performer Emma Ryan.

“I was watching everyone and how impressed I was with how they were performing and I knew then I wanted to make it there one day,” Millie said.

The Warren freshman will get her first experience on Friday as she competes in the discus.

“It’s definitely surreal to put myself against great athletes and others who are older than me,” she said. “Those who have supported me have helped me get ready.”

Millie qualified by placing third at the regional meet last week when she set a personal record with a throw of 122-feet-11-inches.

“She has just progressed throughout the year,” said Warren coach Sally Maddox. “About halfway through the season she threw just over 100 feet and then she threw over 110 and then it was 112 and then 118 and last week it was over 122. That’s a real nice progression as the season has gone on.”

Millie said coming off her best performance this spring has given her a lot of confidence.

“I feel comfortable in that space to be able to compete against others who have been there before,” she said. “I’m working hard in practice to get ready for the big meet.”

On the girls side, Erin Bogard claimed the regional championship in the pole vault at 10 feet, 8 inches. It’s her third straight year going to Columbus.
