Last year, as a freshman, Dublin Scioto's Audrey Bannister caught fire. During the regular season, she announced her arrival amongst the top central Ohio runners with her runner-up finish at the Celtic Clash in 18:00.23. The big finishes just kept coming from there:
At the 2015 OHSAA Cross Country State Championships, Zach Kreft finished 146th in the Div 2 race. Last place. It's a jarring stat that makes you realize just how amazing his rise through Ohio athletics has been. Since that meet, he's won the Div 2 XC title in 2016 and 2017 and qualified to Footlocker Nationals. On the track, he's racked up state meet finishes and fast times while demolishing the Buckeye Valley record books. As the blazing fast senior wraps up his final year of high school racing, we caught up with him to learn about what makes him tick, why he's racing for Notre Dame in the fall, and how much wind resistance a plastic sword creates when you're racing a road mile.
This past Saturday, both the Hilliard Davidson girls and boys won the Pickerington Regional. Once again, both programs are headed to the state XC championships. To outside observers, that doesn't come as a surprise. It seems as though the Davidson teams magically find their way to the top every year. To those within the program, they know that there's no magic to it. The Wildcats reach the top through a program that stresses hard work, team unity, and a growth mindset. Runners at Davidson don't settle. They improve. A lot.
As the indoor track season comes to its peak, CRC's Rachel Weber catches up with Dublin Coffman's Abby Steiner (sprints) & Jonathan Alder's Jase Headings (mid-distance). Good luck to everyone racing at the indoor state meet this week!
