In the past 30 Sandusky Bay Conference Championships, Perkins has won the boys track and field meet in all but three years.
New date for 2012. Same result.
Running on a Friday night instead of the usual Saturday, Perkins won a seventh straight league title and its 30th overall, hardly threatened on the way to 187 points.
Perkins boys had seven first place finishes out of 17 events, as Michael Decker had a pair of wins in the distance events, winning the 1600 (4:32.38) and 3200 (10:05.51) meter runs. Aaron Mawhirter and Michael Ebert teamed to earn big points in the throwing events, and the Pirates took first in both sprint relays.
The Oak Harbor girls won their third straight crown and fourth overall – all since 2008 — despite winning only one event. Morgan Turnow set a school record in the discus (132 feet, 9 inches).
Turner turns it on
Clyde’s Adam Turner was named Most Outstanding Performer for the boys side, with individual first-place finishes in the 200 (22.57) and 400 (50.85) meter dashes, second place in the 100 meter dash (11.38) and a win with the 4x400 meter relay with Alex Webber, Bryce Chong and Collin Rieman (3:30.34).
Cromwell, Kaatz split top honors
On the girls side, Edison’s Natasha Cromwell and Lindsay Kaatz tied for Most Outstanding Performer honors, with three individual wins and one relay first.
Cromwell took first in the 100 (13.20), 200 (26.57) and 400 (59.02) meter dashes, and teamed up with Elise Gastier, Olivia Gornek and Danica Lombardi for first in the 4x200 meter relay.
Kaatz took first in the 800 (2:23.53), 1600 (5:19.45) and 3200 (12:03.84) meter runs, and took first in the 4x400 meter relay with Lydia Yeckley, Bridget Murphy and Armelle DeRiso (4:08.17).
