Five local track and field athletes advance to state

Four named softball All-ohio selections

BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press

Local softball teams had another strong season on the diamond this spring. Three teams took home at least a share of their respective league titles and one advanced to a second straight district title game. It is of little surprise, then, that when the Ohio High School Fastpitch Coaches Association released its All-Ohio teams this week there were several local representatives. Four local softball players earned All-Ohio honors

PIQUA-- Their days may have unfolded differently but the results ended up exactly the same for Nick McAfee and Jess Adamson. And, all things considered, that’s perfectly fine for the Georgetown track and field teammates. That’s because their performances at the Division III regional meet at Piqua High School last Saturday earned them return trips to the State Track and Field Championships taking place in Columbus this weekend. McAfee ran a strong race in the 1600-meter run to finish second in Piqua and advance to his second straight state meet appearance while his classmate Adamson didn’t have his best day throwing the shot put but it was still good enough to advance to his fourth straight state meet appearance. The two senior G-Men competitors will have some familiar faces joining them at Jesse Owens Stadium on the campus of Ohio State University this weekend. They’ll be joined by three G-Men teammates making their first appearance at the state meet. Georgetown’s 4x800

Western Brown Youth Cheer will be holding its fitting on June 14 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Brown County Library. All youth cheerleaders must attend for fittings. It is mandatory. New cheerleaders will need to be fitted for new uniforms to assure completion of uniforms by the beginning of August. Returning cheerleaders will need to bring uniform to try on so that coaches can make sure it fits appropriately. All cheerleaders will be fitted for shoes, socks, spankies and, possibly, warm-ups. Any questions can be directed to Lori Gavula at (937) 232-6315 or Julie Hinkle at (937) 232-4079.

for their efforts this season, led by a pair of Eastern teammates. Maria Johnson’s performance both in the circle and at the plate helped her earn Division III second team All-Ohio honors for the second straight year. Her efforts at the plate and as the Lady Warriors pitcher were strong once again this year. The senior hurler finished the season 22-2 in the circle for the Lady Warriors in 144 innings pitched. She struck out 133 and pitched six shutouts. CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

per finished third at the regional meet in Piqua last Wednesday to advance to the state meet. In all, five G-Men track and field athletes will compete in Columbus this weekend, by far the most of any school locally. “That's a huge accomplishment. I'm so proud of the boys,” Georgetown track and field coach Tracy Hawkins said over the phone on Tuesday. “They worked so hard at it. They had their eye on it from day one of the season and wanted to go.” Adamson is aiming to capture a state title in the shot put to wrap up his decorated high school career before heading off to compete at Northern Kentucky University next year. He enters state coming off a performance he was none to pleased with at regionals. His put of 49-7.50 was good enough for third at the regional meet but Adamson felt he should have thrown better. “I found it in warmups. I was throwing them over 60 (feet) but then I came back in prelims and did really bad. Don't know what happened,” Adamson explained on Saturday. “Trying to figure out what, if my blood sugar was low or anything. Went in the finals and still did bad. I don't know what hap-
