The Tigers went to BG on Sunday with the goal of posting some solid qualifying marks and boy did they show up big. The 4 x 2 team of Dustin Klenke, Tyler Eller, Gabe James and Brandon James ran a 1:35.41 (fastest 200 meter track time in Tiger history) to jump into the top eight in the state rankings. Later in the afternoon the 4 x 4 of G. James, Wesley Eller, Zane Wicker and T.Eller did the same by running 3:38.04 to cement a qualifying spot for Akron. Elsewhere in the meet Tyler Eller lowered his 400 meter to 51.17 and is also in the top eight. Gabe James broke 20 for the first time in long jump to move up the ranking list. Caitlin Hinds broke through big with a 31 foot effort in the triple jump, Audra Meeks lenghtened her triple effort to 29-3, and Bailie Barrington broke the 2:30 mark in the 800. One week of qualifying left. Let's "fill the bus" for the state meet. Currently we have automatic marks in the 60 (2), 400, 200, LJ, PV, TJ, Weight throw, 4 x 2 and 4 x 4 for boys and HJ and TJ for girls with other athletes very close to auto marks. A good week of work and Friday night is where we can shine. Go TIgers !!!!
