Columbus - It wasn’t Erin Bogard’s first time standing on the podium at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

It was, however, the Warren senior’s first time at the top.

Bogard cleared 12 feet, 2 inches at the state track meet Saturday to bring home a Division II state championship to Vincent. It was the first individual state title in program history.

“It felt great,” Bogard said. “It’s been four years. Been here four times, and to go out on top feels amazing.”

Bogard placed fourth at state last year with a top mark of 11-8. She came in as the top seed at state this season and did not disappoint.

“Last year, I had the same pressure,” Bogard said of having a state title on her mind. “I came in pretty high. I think this year I just knew I could do it. Everything had been coming together the past week.”

Bogard started at 10-10 and cleared it on her first try. Next came 11-2, 11-6 and 11-10. She got through on her first attempt each time.

Columbus - All season long, the Warren boys track team dominated its competition in the Mid-Ohio Valley.

Through district and regional, the Warriors stayed dominant but went into the state meet with something to prove. Warren finished with 35 points as a team Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium to place third overall and crowned six All-Ohioans in six events over two days.

“I never would’ve thought in my track career we’d have, one, this many people at state, and two, we’d all be finishing as high as we are,” said Warren junior Justin Lough. “It’s been amazing competing so dominantly around our area but also to know we’re not just ‘MOV’ good. We’re ‘state-of-Ohio’ good.”

Lough was all-state in the 300 hurdles and the 4×400. He placed fourth in the 300 after finishing fifth last season. He clocked in at 38.49, with the top three hurdlers notching sub-38 second times.

“It was a really tough race,” Lough said. “Two of the boys (ahead of me) are juniors, are my age, so I’ve got them next year to deal with. That’s exciting to know I’ll have to fight for it next year.

Track Looking to do Damage at State Meet

Justin LoughTrack Looking to do Damage at State Meet

Vincent - The Warren boys track team has a chance to do some serious damage at the state track meet this weekend at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

The Warriors will be sending six athletes to the meet, and they’ll combine to compete in six different events. All six Warriors competed at state last year and have a good idea of what to expect in Columbus.

“We’re feeling good,” said first-year Warren boys track coach Tyler Schaad.

“We have a lot of guys in multiple events. It’s been fun. We always knew we’d have a chance to be in the position we’re in. But now that we’re here, it’s kind of crazy to think about.”

Scheduled to kick things off for Warren at 1:45 p.m. Friday is the 4×800 relay team. The foursome of Ethan Yost, Preston Rowland-Demster, Jake Herriott and Trent Sayre posted a regional time of 7:59.30 to claim the title. That is the second best among the field at state, with Shelby coming in with a 7:56.03 regional mark. Those are the only sub-eight-minute times in the field.

“Us and Shelby have the two best times,” Schaad said. “This is the same group of guys back from last year. They know what they’re capable of. They just have to put it all together.”

Vincent - The Warren girls track team will be well represented in the Ohio State high school track meet, which begins Friday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

The Warren girls will have no less than three individuals aiming for podium finishes as well as a pair of relay teams.

“We are extremely proud of the girls that qualified for state and this is the largest group we have had go to state in at least 10 years,” said WHS head coach Sally Maddox. “Our goals are to do our very best and hopefully that will be good enough to get us on the podium.”

Leading the way for the Warren will be senior pole vaulter Erin Bogard, who will be making her fourth consecutive appearance in Columbus.

Bogard comes into the meet as a favorite after breaking the regional record last Saturday at Muskingum University in the Division II, Region 7 meet by vaulting 12 feet, 5 inches.

That height was one inch higher than the previous record which was set by Indian Valley’s Kayla Caldwell and stood for a dozen years.

Last season Bogard stood on the All-Ohio podium by placing a career-best fourth with a vault of 11-8.

“She is heading into the meet with one of the best jumps so we are very excited to see how she does,” said Maddox of Bogard, who will vault at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. “She has worked extremely hard and qualifying all four years is incredible. We are very proud of all she has accomplished.”

New Concord - Warren’s Erin Bogard set a pole vault record and the Warrior boys had a dominating performance to conclude Saturday’s Division II, Region 7 meet at Muskingum University.

Bogard cleared 12 feet, 5 inches to not only stand atop the podium and qualify for this week’s Ohio state track meet at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus, but she also broke the regional record of 12-4 set back in 2007 by Indian Valley’s Kayla Caldwell.

The Warren boys of head coach Tyler Schaad capped the regional with a victory in the 4×400 and finished as the team champion with 69 points. That total easily topped runner-up Sheridan (52) as Ridgewood (38), Steubenville (36) and West Holmes (32) rounded out the top five.

Justin Lough, Trent Sayre, Isaiah Kitts and Ethan Yost ran a regional-best 3:25.58 in the 4×400.

The Warriors barely qualified as a team in the 4×200 as the same quartet placed fourth with a time of 1:31.13, which just nipped fifth-place West Holmes (1:31.24).

In the boys 1600, it was an all-Warren showdown between Sayre and fellow senior teammate Jake Herriott, who crossed the finish line in 4:21.37 with Sayre right behind at 4:21.89.

Muskingum - Warren made its presence felt in the relay events at Thursday’s Division II Region 7 track meet at Muskingum University.

Both boys and girls 4×800 teams punched their tickets to state Thursday, while both 4×4 teams and the boys 4×2 team qualified for Saturday’s finals. A top four finish Saturday will earn a berth to next week’s state meet in Columbus.

The All-Ohio quartet of Ethan Yost, Preston Rowland-Demster, Jake Herriott and Trent Sayre clocked in at 7 minutes, 59.30 seconds Thursday to claim a regional championship.

The Warriors’ 4×4 team also came in first in the preliminaries. Sayre, Yost, Isaiah Kitts and Justin Lough produced a time of 3:24.86 and will look for a fourth-or-better finish Saturday to earn a trip to state.

Individually, Lough advanced to the finals in the 300 hurdles (38.99; 2nd) and 110 hurdles (15.93; 8th), while Kitts moved on to the 400 fnals with a time of 50.71 (4th).

Warriors Fall to Athens in Extra Innings

Seth DennisWarriors Fall to Athens in Extra Innings

Athens - After winning two straight postseason baseball games on walk-off hits, Warren High went down in a similar manner in an OHSAA Division II district final.

Sophomore center fielder Peyton Gail’s two-out, two-run double to right-center in the bottom of the ninth inning enabled second-seeded Athens High to defeat the eighth-seeded Warriors, 5-4, Wednesday night at Bob Wren Stadium on the campus of Ohio University.

“Give that kid (Gail) credit,” said WHS skipper Ryan Lemley. “He went down and got a pitch that was out and away.”

Warren senior reliever Drew Huffman, the winning pitcher in last Thursday’s sectional triumph over Marietta High, suffered the mound setback. Brett Gandee started and pitched four innings for the Warriors (19-7).

“Drew came in and did a good job,” Lemley said. “We just didn’t get it done.”
