Three Tiger athletes competed at Tiffin University’s Heminger Center Indoor Track and Field Complex to kick off an early start to the 2019 season. Although these meets are not affiliated with the OHSAA, athletes are able to qualify for the OATCCC Indoor State Championships on March 2nd.
Seniors Hunter Garbe (competed unattached) and Bridgette Gerber-Winschel competed for the girls’ team, and junior Noah Woodruff (competed unattached) was the lone competitor for the boys’ side.
Garbe and Gerber-Winschel placed 2nd and 4th, respectively, in the 60m hurdles with times of 10.51 and 10.90. Both girls also ran the open 200m, with Garbe earning a 5th place finish with a time of 29.56, and Gerber-Winschel finishing right behind her in 6th with a time of 30.52. Gerber-Winschel also competed in the long jump, placing 8th with a jump of 13’8″.
Noah Woodruff competed in the shot put, where he qualified for finals with a throw of 42’3″, and finished 5th with a throw of 42’7.50″.
Overall, it was a day where our athletes were knocking the rust off and getting out there to have some fun and get ready for the upcoming outdoor season.
