Christian Commits to Oakland...

FIVE BUCCANEERS HEADED TO STATE IN TRACK...
Covington will be well represented at the state track meet once again as Lauren Christian, Gray Harshbarger, Alex Shaffer, Andrew Cates and Cade Schmelzer all punched their tickets to next week's state meet.
Andrew Cates takes the handoff from Cade Schmelzer as the Buccs qualified for state in the 4x200 relay with a time of 1:31.37.

TROY - Lauren Christian is headed back to state for the third straight year as she won the regional title in the shot put on Wednesday, after trailing until her final attempt in finals.

Christian had a put of 40-6 on her first attempt, but Botkins' Grace Homan topped that and led headed to the finals with a put of 41-6.

"It is probably good that I had that (40-6 on her first attempt)," Christian said. "Because I fouled on the next two. I was going 43, 44 feet in warmups, so I knew it (a better put) was out there."

After another foul and a put of 39-10 on her second attempt in the finals, Christian had one last shot.

And she delivered in the clutch, with a put of 42-1 and 3-4 and Homan couldn’t top it on her final attempt.

"It was just a matter of me calming down and relaxing," Christian said.

Now she has a shot at her ultimate goal next week.

"It has been my goal (to win state)," she said. "I am excited about it. I always throw better in Columbus (at state), because the great atmosphere pumps me up."

Christian was looking to double up on Friday in the discus, but fell short of s state birth in that event with a sixth place finish with a throw of 121-10.00.

Joining Christian at state will be the boys 4x200 and 4x400 relay teams along with Andrew Cates in the 400 meter dash.

The 4x400 relay team of Gray Harshbarger, Alex Shaffer, Cade Schmelzer and Andrew Cates finished second in the time of 3:25.64 and the 4x200 relay team of the same four runners finished third with time of 1:31.37.

Cates qualified for state in his third event by taking third in the 400 meter dash with a time of 50.37.

Lauren Christian is headed to state for the third straight time after winning a regional title in the shot put.
Andrew Cates finished third in the 400 meter dash and will compete at state in three events - the 4x200 relay, the 4x400 relay and the 400 meter dash.
