Walnut Hills' Amanda Mullins-Hall owns the city record for the 100-meter hurdles, 13.94 seconds.

Record year for area stars Five city marks broken already; others may fall By Tom Groeschen 17zr Cincinnati Enquirer

Cincinnati track athletes have vaporized several city records and threatened many more this spring, as longtime standards fall almost weekly. "As far as top-end talent, this is the best year I can remember since I've been coaching." said Karl Kauffman, the Walnut Hills girls coach since 1990. "Every r ·ce in a while, you'll run into a group like this," said Floyd Horton, coach of the area's No. 1ranked Middletown boys team. "We're fortunate to have a lot of great athletes at once." Kauffman has compiled a list of boys and girls city records in recent years, with input from fellow Cincinnati coaches. According to the coaches, two girls records and three boys marks have fallen in 2002: • Amanda Mullins-Hall of Walnut Hills has three times lowered the girl;; 100-rneter hurdles record, most recently running 13.94 second;; at the Roosevelt Memorial m Dayton; • Carrie Koenig of Colerain has gone 10-h in the pole vault, breaking the mark of 10-0 she set last year; • Cedric Powell of Roger Bacon, 47.24 sec· onds in the boys 400-meter dash, breaking a record held since 1984 by Leroy Williams of old Greenhills High School (47.44): • The La Salle 6,400meter relay of Jason Beck, Eric Mayhaus, Kvle Dragan and Allen Bader ran 17:53:0'', breaking a 30-year-old city record by eight seconds; • The Middletown 800meter relay team of Tyran Thompson, Nasir Ahmad, Darrell Hunter and Marc Johnson ran 1:26.70 at the recent Roosevelt Memorial in Dayton. Mullins-Hall, a senior bound for Vanderbilt next year, is unbeaten in both

and state meets coming in the next few weeks, several more Cincinnati records could also be threatened. Generally, most athletes tend to peak during postseason. "You hate to make predictions, but based on the talent around here you could see one of the better showings Cincinnati has had at the state meet," Kauffman said. Among records threatened is the boys pole vault with co-holder Brent Walter of Moeller trying to match his mark of 15-7 set last year. He could be challenged by John Russell of Princeton, who has gone 15-h this season. Among girls, Shanna Dickenson of Aiken is pushing the city discus record.

Middies set up well for state Six individuals and two relays qualify By John Schutte Enquirer Contributor

DAYTON- Middletown's boys track team fell just short of capturing its second straight regional title, falling to Huber Heights Wayne 82-76 on Saturday. La Salle finished third with 53 · points, followed by Dayton Northmont and St. Xavier. ''I'm very pleased with our performance today. All but one of our expected qualifiers advanced to state," Middletown coach Floyd Horton said. "I told the kids that next week is a different meet. Just because they beat us today doesn't mean they will next week." Middletown trailed by four points entering the final event the 1,600 relay - but its team of Dennis Gates, Jarrod Weeks, Nasir Ahmad and Darrell Hunter finished second to Wayne. Hunter, a senior, qualified for state in four events- the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400 relay and 1.600 relay. Marc Johnson and Hunter finished 1-2 in the

100 and teamed with Tyran Thompson and Ahmad to easily win the 400 relay in 41.29 seconds. Middletown is the defending state champion and record-holder in the event. "We set the record last year, and one of our main goals is to break that record this year," Ahmad said. "We are shooting for the national record of 40.55." Middletown qualified six runners and two relay teams for the state meet, putting the Middies in contention for the state title. "We need to go to state and have each kid worry about his individual events," Horton said. "That is the only thing they control." DOUBLE WINNER: La Salle's Allen Bader, the twotime defending state champion in cross-country, won the 1,600 and 3,200. Bader started his day with a victory over Middletown's Jeff See in the 1,600. Bader lost to See in the Roosevelt Invitational, but a new strategy paid off. "I wanted to sit back and see what kind of kick he had at the end," Bader said. "He started his kick with around 250 meters remaining, which was probably a

Girls track and field

Turpin, still running strong, wins regional By John Schutte Enquirer Contributor

DAYTON - Everything went right for the Turpin girls track team Saturday afternoon at Welcome Stadium. The Spartans easily won the Division I Southwest regional with 83 points. The regional track title is the first in school history and comes on the heels of Turpin's state cross country championship in the fall. "I think these girls carried some confidence over from cross country," Turpin coach Dan Dever said. "That has made a huge difference." Winton Woods finished second with 38 points, followed by Loveland and Dayton Colonel White with 36. Carolyn Rauen was one of many standout performers for Turpin, winning the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs. Teammate Corey Randall qualified for state in both events with finishes of second and third. "This is an exciting day and a great step for our program," Rauen said. "My only goal was to qualify in both events." Rauen pulled out both victories by out-kicking her competition on the final lap. Rauen finished the 1,600 in 5:02.39 and covered the

3,200 in 11:08.19. Senior Christine Hendricks was a surprise winner in the 300 low hurdles and finished third in the 100 hurdles. Hendricks qualified for state last year in the 100 hurdles. . "Although I didn't run my best time today, I felt like I ran my best race," Hendricks said. Coach Dan Dever expects Turpin to be one of three teams to compete for a state team championship. "Beaumont and Cleveland Heights are both very tough programs. We finished third in the Roosevelt Invitational. We'll need a little luck," Dever said. REGIONAL RECORD: Aiken sophomore Shanna Dickenson set a regional record in the discus with a throw of 141 feet, 3 inches. She eclipsed the mark of 140-10 set by Christy Herman of West Carrollton in 1999. "I was tripping on my earlier throws. I took a deep breath and regrouped," Dickenson said. RELAY WINNERS: The Winton Woods 800 relay team of Micole Bradw'ell, Ashley Ogletree, Jammie Jackson and Kathy Dees captured the championship in a school-record 1:42.48. "Our goal is to run 1:40 at

state," Dees said. Winton Woods' 400 relay team of Dai'Tiara Brown, Dees, Ogletree and Bradwell also qualified for state with a third-place finish. "We're not pleased with the result. We had some bad handoffs," Bradwell said. "Next weekend we'll show what we're capable of." Jackson also won the 400 and is a school record-holder in the 200, 400, 400 relay and 800 relay. POLE VAULT: Colerain junior Tara Meier went from clearing 6 feet early in her first season as a vaulter to being a state qualifier after a secondplace finish. Meier eclipsed her personal record by 1 foot with a 10-foot vault. Tea111 Scorlng-1. Turpin 83; 2. -toa Woeds 38; 3. Loveland, Colonel WhUe 36; 5. Meadowdale, Beavercreek 34; 7. Mlddletowo 30; 8.

Madeira bats silen By. To111 Groeschen Tke Cincinnati Enquirer

COLUMBUS '- Madeira had to bat against a Baltimore Orioles draftee. That's bad enough, but it's much worse when his teammates hit like young Cal Ripkens. The Mustangs lost 11-1 to top-ranked Heath in the Division ill state baseball semifinals Friday at Cooper Stadium. The game was halted after five innings by the 10run rule. . "We ran into a nial good pitcher, the pest we've seen this year," Madeira coach Jack Kuzniczci said. Kuzniczci, whose 1999 Madeira team won the Division III state title, said his research· showed 50 percent of state champions came from the Southwest-area regionals. Not this year. Heath, located just east of Columbus, plays Elyria Catholic in Sunday's Division ill finals. Heath was led by Barry Roe, a 6-foot senior right-hander drafted by the

Orioles in the 42nd round of this week's amateur draft Roe, who has •been clocked at 94 mph on the radar gun, struck out five Mustangs and allowed only three hits. ' He said he probably will play at John A. Logan Junior College in· southern · Illinois before trying a professional career. Heath grabbed an 8-0 1ead through two innings, ending any semblance of suspense. The Bulldogs hit nine doubles and one triple, scorched to all fields with the h\gh-decibel "ping" of aluminum bats. Steve Tudor, the Madeira center fielder, was busy tracking many of the long hits all day. Tudor went 2for-3 at the plate, . a rare bright spot as Madeira scored its only run on a wild pitch. "You've got to get off to a good start in these games," Tudor said. "Any little thing can get you momentum, and they jumped right on us." Of Roe, Tudor said· the Mustangs . got some good looks but didn't capitalize. "He was pretty good, but he

wasn't overpowering," Tudor said. ·' . Roe managed to strike out Madeira first baseman Kyle Fields once, a. rare feat. Fields, who closed an outstanding career, had struck out only three tirnes this season. But it was Fields who helped get Madeira this far to begin with, with a teamhigh .541 batting average and a school~record 51 RBI tbis year. That was despite recovering from a severely broken leg, suffered in a vehicle crash outside Paul Brown Stadium before a Bengals game in November. Madeira had reached the tournament largely on its .377 team batting average. Its pitching staff has a high ERA of nearly 4.00. "We've been outscoring people all year, so once we The Cincinnati Enquirer/JEFF'SWINGER got .that far behind it was Brad Darter scored Madeira's only run on a wild pitch in the third inning, tagging . · tough," Kuzniczci said.

Russell takes vault highlights


DAYTON - From fourth in 2001 to state champion in 2002. That's the path followed by John Russell, a Princeton · senior who claimed the Division I state pole vault championship Friday at Welcome Stadium. , "The difference this year. is that I stayed calm," Rus-sell said. "After I cleared at · 15-6 and the others hadn't, I started thinking, 'Oh my gosh, I'm going to be state champion.' " · . Russell's performance was one of the few bright spots in the Division I field events, completed during the first day of the two-day meet. Moeller's Brent Walter took third in the pole vault. John Porter, an Anderson junior, was seventh. Russell's strategy was on target. He passed until the bar reached 14 feet, which he easily cleared. He passed again at 14-3 and cleared on the first attempt at 14-6. In what appeared to be a gamble, Russell again passed at 15-3, preferring to go 15-6. Russell missed for the first time at 15-6 before clearing it on the second try. Walter and Pickerington's Jake Kuhner both missed at 15-6, giving Russell the state championship. The bar was moved to 15-9, but Russell failed to clear in three attempts. "I've got 16 feet in me. I'll get it," Russell said. "I probably relaxed at 15-9 since I had the championship won." HIGH JUMP: One of the happiest athletes was Northwest senior Sam Stofel. He qualified to the state high jump competi. tion with a leap of 6-2, then went 6-5 Friday to claim sixth place. His personal best is 6-6. "My only goal was to get onto the. podium and receive a medal," Stofel said LONG JUMP: Wilmington sophomore Marquis Jones surprised himself with a personal-best 22-9%

Anderson, Milford square off in semis

COLUMBUS - The Anderson and Milford baseball programs .waited decades to get this far, so a day's delay is no big deal. The Cincinnati schools, each making its first state baseball appearance, will meet in the semifinals at Ohio State's Bill-Davis Stadium at 11 a.m. today, The game was set for Friday, but, all Ohio tournament games were pushed back because of rain Thursday. The Anderson-Milford winner advances to the state. final Sunday, but the loser will still walk tall in baseballstrong Cincinnati., "One of our goals was to be the last team in Cincinnati still playing," Anderson coach Shea Wardwell said. "Usually if you do that, you're playing pretty well." In a year when coaches agreed there was no dominant Division I team, Anderson (23-5) and Milford (24-5) proved to be the best.
