OHTF Golden Eagles Push 200 Points Nearly Doubling Up the Field Winning their 5th Straight Conference Championship – Sweet Wins 4 Events
The OHTF Golden Eagles won their 5th straight Central Indiana Conference Championship Friday after amassing almost 200 points and nearly doubling up the field. Behind 7 1st, 5 1-2 sweeps, points scored in all 16 events, two scorers in 12 of 13 individual events, and 25 Top 5 finishes the Golden Eagles scored 189 points to outpace two talented teams in Mississinewa and Madison Grant who scored 97 and 92 points respectively.
Junior Golden Eagle Trenton Sweet once again led the way. Sweet pulled off the always impressive and difficult distance quad with four 1st place medals on the night. By anchoring the 4×800 Meter Relay to 1st in a season best, then setting lifetime personal bests in the 1600 and 800 Meter Runs, and closing the night out with a sub 10 minute performance to win the 3200 Meter Run Sweet became the 1st Golden Eagle athlete in program history to pull off the distance quad sweep in a Conference Meet. Overall it was the 1st time in 11 years that a Golden Eagle athlete won four events in a Conference meet of any kind. Indiana All Star Alec Samuels did it in 2012.
Junior classmates Owen Jackson and Toby Sneed earned big points in the distance events earning 1-2 sweeps in those events behind Sweet. Jackson took 2nd in both the 1600 and 800 Meter Runs while Sneed took 2nd in the 3200 Meter Run. Sneed joined Sweet under 10 minutes in the 3200 becoming just the 15th athlete in program history to do so. Sweet and Sneed also became the first Golden Eagle athletes to both go under 10 minutes in the event in the same season since Mike Truman and Mark Dively did so in 1971. Sweet broke a big barrier of his own as he went 1:59 in the 800 to become the 11th sub 2 Golden Eagle in Program History.
Sweet and Jackson teamed up with Senior Landon Biegel and Sophomore to start the night off with a 1st place in the 4×800 Meter Relay. Beigel also grabbed a 1st place finish as the anchor of the winning 4×400 Meter Relay team. The 4×4 memebrs were Senior classmates Lucas Hasty and Caleb Kroll along with Junior Levi Trexler who also took 2nd in the High Jump. Biegel added two Top 3 finishes in the High Jump and 400 Meter Dash as Kroll earned Top 4 finishes just behind Biegel in the 400 and Senior Kyle Turanchick in the Long Jump, who took 3rd. Hasty was an multi event winner on the night as well as he went 1-2 in the 300 Hurdles with Wyrick.
Senior Silas Jones took 1st in the Shot Put while Junior Nate Brower and Senior Grant Elzinga posted another 1-2 sweep in the Pole Vault.
The Golden Eagles got some unexpected points in the sprints all night long led by the 2nd place finish from the 4×100 Meter Relay comprised of Turanchick and Trexler along with Sophomores Morshown Cotton and Micah McKinney. Cotton had one of the biggest performances on the entire meet when it came to over producing on seeds. After being seeded to not score a single point in two of his events and a total of 5 points on paper Cotton scored in all three of his events totalling 17 points for the meet.
Other depth points scorers were Senior Wyatt Strange and Junior Tai Johnson in the throws and Sophomore Drew Elzinga in the Hurdles.
The Golden Eagles are now 26-0 on the season and wrap up the regular season next Tuesday May 9th at home on Senior Night against Peru. The IHSAA Tourney Series starts for the Men Thursday May 18th at Indiana Wesleyan University.
